Monsters - Vehicles - May 2014 Competition

Monsters - Vehicles - May 2014 Competition

Postby timewizard » Mon Apr 28, 2014 12:58 am

You MAY want to jump right in to this next Modeling Contest! But be warned, it’ll be a real monster! No freewheeling allowed here, but this competition could be your vehicle to fame and fortune! (Well, at least to fame!) So without further ado, or my bad puns, here we go!

Vehicle or Monster (Or a combination!)

Rules are as follows (FOR THE ESSENTIALS ONLY, SCROLL DOWN TO THE RED TEXT)

Each contestant must submit a photo of an unopened box, unassembled model or unpainted model or submit a drawing or photo describing the project into the “Building Competition” thread by May the 15th. Primed only models are acceptable but completely unprimed models are preferred. Direct casts or re-casts of any copyrighted material will result in the post being deleted and the poster being disqualified for that month’s contest.

A list will be posted by one of the moderators in this post listing all eligible contestants for the month's competition. No entries will be accepted or can be changed after the 15th of May. No exceptions.

During the month, wip photos can be put into the thread, and in fact are encouraged, but may not be placed in the competition gallery.

All completed entries must be submitted by the 28th of May and must posted in the competition gallery and no entries will be accepted after midnight GMT on that date. Only one entry per person will be permitted and the entry must consist of a single image. Multiple photos on the image are allowable but if more than one photo is uploaded to the gallery by any one entrant at any time, that entrant will be disqualified.

If an entrant has not completed their project by the deadline, they may still enter an incomplete entry if desired, but it will of course be judged as such. The only requirement is to post the entry by the deadline. The members of the site have the final word after all!

Voting will be held from just after midnight May 28th until midnight GMT on May 30th. At that time voting will be closed and the winners will be announced.

Every registered member of the site may vote. The total number of votes each member may cast will depend on the number of entrants as follows;
Up to 5 entries - 1 vote per registered member
6 to 10 entries - 2 votes per registered member
More than 10 entries - 3 votes per registered member
You can change your vote(s) until the poll is closed. No poll results will be revealed (even to the moderators) until the poll has closed.

ESSENTIALS:

For this month, entries must be either vehicles or monsters. Of course, if you want to scratchbuild or cobble together a monsterous vehicle, like the one pictured, feel free! The monster/vehicle can be from any game system in use (40K, BA, FoW, etc.) it could be a model from a movie or TV series (Star Trek, Star Wars, Battlestar Galactica, etc.) a military model (tank, AFV, jeep or ship) or it could just be something you want to build to test yourself and put on a shelf. The choices are wide open here. The usual requirements of something NIB, unpainted or just barely primed still apply. For example, I have an old DE raider kit that is primed and has some other colors applied, I’d have to strip off everything but the primer to enter it. (Not that I am, just an example! :D )

Entry open until May 15th
Contest closes Midnight May 28th

ONE entry per person

We look forward to seeing your entries! Good luck to all the entrants.

Absolutely! They are vehicles and a platoon of them would be fine (and a sight to see, I'm sure!).

And a platoon of russes would be a monstrous sight on the field as well! :)

I'm confused - rules say A vehicle or A monster. Isn't a platoon more? Just thinking in judging and voting it doesn't make for a very even comp... Also do things like wraithknight sand riptides in 40k count as a monster - they're 'monstrous creatures' by their rules although they look like vehicles.

Good questions Herne.

First, the rule has been amended to "vehicles or monsters". In the past, I've entered 5 tiger tanks (15mm scale) so multiple vehicles were always allowed. But now it has been clarified.

Second, if a model's type is 'monstrous creature', then it certainly qualifies as a monster for the contest.

I think Ive narrowed it down to a couple of choices for this month, although not quite sure if one of them fits. The safe choice would be the undercoated land speeder I have sitting next to me that is destined to join my Red Scorpions. The other option would be my epic scale Imperator Titan. What are peoples thoughts?

My brother has also suggested I do a scratch built Thunderhawk or drop pod - I think he's fishing for something to be painted in his Imperial Fist colours!

I might have a few other ideas..... time to ponder yet I think.....

I'm trying to decide also. I have 3 raiders and 3 ravagers that are undercoated, a partially built land speeder storm, a talos pain engine, and a around 2 AFVs for FoW.

I think if your brother wants you to do up a thunderhawk or a drop pod in his chapter colors, the least he could do is to buy the kit!

Just my 2¢!
