AoS SM Company Painting Competition! Please read for details

Postby conscriptboris » Sun May 09, 2010 10:23 am

Hi fellow AOS'ers!

The competitions are back and with some exciting prizes to be won! These competitions are going to focus on your style, creativity and imagination!

Age of Strife wants to invite you to help start and complete our very own Space Marine Company for the Site, interested? Then read on.

We at AOS would like to create a Company that others can follow and help design, not only that but we want to field a full company at the AOS 2010 summer meet up at WHW for the Apocalypse game!

We are looking for budding volunteers to build, paint and create figures leaving potentially 118 slots available, each individual Company Marine will have a name you choose.

So everyone can easily take part we plan to build the 6th Company reserves (10 tactical squads with transports). The layout will be as follows:

Age of Strife Chapter - 6th Company. (Reserve Company)
Chapter Name: Sons of Strife
Disposition:

Company Command Squad:

Company Captain. Entered by Herne
Company Champion.
Apothecary.
Standard Bearer.
Veteran Sergeant.
Chaplain.

Tactical Squad 9 (consist of Sgt, 7 Marines, 1 Assault Wpn, 1 Heavy Wpn)
Rhino 9

Tactical Squad 10 (consist of Sgt, 7 Marines, 1 Assault Wpn, 1 Heavy Wpn)
Rhino 10


107 Marines.

11 Vehicles.


Guidelines:

Three competitions are going to be run!

Competition One: Best Command Sq Figure.
Competition Two: Best Marines.
Competition Three: Best Vehicle.


Names:
1. Cannot be a known name from any other official chapter HQ.
2. Must be no more than two words.
3. Bear in Mind Rank will be used with the name.
4. Rank and name to be painted on the front of the base.

Figures:
1. Must be in coherency to the AOS chapter colour as voted (example shown, Shoulder trim Orange)
2. Its down to you how the model paint is done, this will give each marine
an individual look.
3. The base will be black round the edges (name in white) and a brown
surface with sand and green flock.
4. Must be on standard base with minimal scenery items.
5. If given assault wpn or heavy weapon, you decide which one!

Vehicles:
1. They will be as shown in colours and symbols, the rest is your creativity.


General:
1. Put yourself forward with what positions you would like in the company from the list above. (its like the lottery, do more, higher chance of winning, i know many people are!)
2. Please stick to the one you ask for, this will enable the final result of a standard company.
3. This needs to be done by the August 2010 meet up.
4. Models have do to be donated and sent in, they will then go through a voting process by a select team including GW staff at Nottingham.
5. Your real name is to be painted onto the bottom, with anything else you
want as long as it is legible.
6. If you want to be put into the competition then please state when
applying for the company position, you can donate completed figures and opt out and just go for the community spirit.

The Competitions will be split into three catagories:
1. Best Marine.
2. Best Vehicle.
3. Best Command Sq Figure (only 7 available so prepare to go all out!)

Please bear in mind, if you ask to create the company captain then it doesn’t have to be the GW captain box set, you can build your own out of bits, be creative, the idea of this project is to give every marine total individualty!

and lastly, If you want to take part, private message me with:

-What company positions/figures you wish to do ie: Tactical Sqd 1, Sgt, Mne 1,2,3,4 etc
- If you want in on the Competition.


Don’t forget you can do more than one mini if you want to increase those odds of winning, I definitely will be.

Any queries or questions feel free to pm me or any of the admin team.

Good Day and Good Luck!

Elvis


Company winning Colours:

Figures:

Image

This model has been described as a dry-brushed Boltgun metal body (gives people a chance to work on weathering) and the red shoulder pads. They will have Orange shoulder pad trims for the 6th Company Colours.

Vehicles:

Where you see the yellow will now be the Red, the grey is to now be Dry brushed Boltgun. The rest is down to your interpretation, your imagination, your choice could be the prize winner!


PS: Prizes will be determined as soon as possible. Please wait out.

I wonder if King could be persuaded to do a Marine Tactical Squad and Rhino special offer deal to help out those without stocks of spare Marines etc.

Well I can donate (and paint) a full tac squad and the captain model unless (both from AoBR) unless anyone has any objections? I might as well take tac squad #1 then.

What color (colour) red are the shoulder pads?
Is it GW blood red, red gore, etc or is it a vallejo red variation?

Well the idea was that you take the idea of the colours and paint what style you want, this will give them an individual feel

If i say one colour then ppl could argue about highlighting etc. So its red, whatever type of red, highlights or shading you use is up to the individual, this is where your style comes in, one of the judging points.

@King - is that 30% off rrp or 30% off GF price?

@ all

Guidance on colour scheme:
As my design was the one that was selected I thought I'd chip in my thoughts on the color scheme:

I envisioned the whole scheme being somewhat dirty and worn. Metal colours (based on boltgun) would involve weathering and scratching as a company that's been at campaign for a while. Remember the reserve companies, although unlikely they'd ever fight together, would return from their different postings in other companies should they be called upon to fight as a single company. This would mean that armour would be in all sorts of states of use and dis-repair. The metallic piping might feature verdigris etc.

The red I pictured as mechrite red, vallejo red gore and darkened with baddab black. I wanted the red to fit in with the site colours, but didn't want it to be too burgundy, like the site, or too bright. (There's enough blood angels out there at the minute thank you very much! :wink: )

Orange - OK who chose the 6th company. NO spacemarine should ever have to go to battle wearing ANY amount of that hideous colour. I would reccommend a single knee pad and/or single shoulder edging (right shoulder) for the orange rim.

As Elvis stated - don't follow my guidance - it's up to you how you interpret the original images, but that's the way I pictured the scheme when I was designing. Have fun!

@Elvis - will decide what I'm painting and will PM you ASAP.

off rrp im affraid.

how to claim the discount: place order... email Taumaul (Gav) on orders@gamingfigures.com and let him know you've placed the order, give the order number, and remind him you are claiming the 'Comp Discount'. He'll adjust your price and take your money ;)

Good luck everyone :D

Err - now I'm confused - I didn't think there was any winning of anything at this stage? I did the silver / red colour scheme that won the votes - thought that was common knowledge - or were we not supposed to say anything? :?: 8O :?:
