Welcome to the Postcard Challenge.
The goal of the Postcard Challenge is to create a military themed diorama. It is aimed for everybody wether they are already skilled in the art of creating miniature slices of history to those who have never tried their hand at creating a bit of scenery. It is about stepping out of your comfort zone, try something new. Expanding your skills and above all have fun in the process.
The Rules and Regs
The challenge is open to:
- Any scale
- Any period since the use of military vehicles/guns up to and including What if, Postapocalypse and zombiestuff
So yeah a military diorama. simple enough.
Except... for some simple rules.....
The diorama MUST have:
- A vehicle* or part of a vehicle**.
- At least 1 figure
- A human made structure of stone
- A scratchbuilt item.
* (This includes Artillery, AT guns, gunemplacements, bunkers with tankturrets.)
** (at least one third of a vehicle. And in this case the kit may be already started or an old banger that you can cut up)
And.... it must not exceed the dimensions of 10,5 cm by 15 cm. Which is exactly the size of a standard postcard. It may not be smaller either. Nothing is allowed to exceed those dimensions. But there is no height restriction. Wooden bases or plaques are not part of the size restrictions.
Combining rules is allowed. If you scratchbuilt a wall or a well you have succesfully combined two of the requirements. This applies to any of the requirements.
Every person who enters the challenge has exactly the same size playingfield to fill. Be creative with it. And as long as you stay inside the size restrictions you are absolutely free what to do with it. You decide what (part of the) vehicle, You decide what figure(s) You decide what the Human made stone object is and you decide what to scratchbuilt.
Every person who finishes a diorama within the Postcard Challenges' deadline will be awarded a special made ribbon. Multiple entries are allowed but only 1 ribbon will be awarded per person.
Well that about sums it up. Looking forward to the entries.
