AoS Space Marines Company Competition! Roll Call!

Postby conscriptboris » Fri Apr 23, 2010 11:12 pm

Hi fellow AoS'ers!

We've come back with a new series of competitions that will test your style and creation and give everyone a fair chance to win prizes no matter their skill set!

First things first, The Events team want you to design a space marine colour scheme for the AoS company. For the colour scheme we want people to submit 3 images:

1. Basic Marine colours.
2. Sgt Marine Colours.
3. Vet Marine Colours.

We would like you to follow guidance on the official SM chapters, however it comes purely down to yourselves on how you want the Company to be coloured. See here for potential ideas and guidelines: http://wh40k.lexicanum.com/wiki/Codex_Astartes

The images will be put to the vote and every member of AoS will be able to vote on their favourite colour scheme. As this is part of a three stage competition prizes will not be awarded for the winner of the colours at this stage, however the winner will be able to choose which Marines (from the list given after the vote) they would like to paint and hand in!

Remember, it will work like a lottery ticket, if you hand in one Marine, you have a chance of winning, however if you hand in five, you have a better chance! however the painting part will come later!

For now what you need to know is how to enter, simply click here! and you will be taken to the B&C Space Marine painter. Create the 3 images and pm or email the details to conscriptboris (me!), I will collate the images (keeping them secret from others) and post them for vote on the final day, this Friday 30th April!

So hurry on and get designing, your scheme could help create another 100 uniquely coloured Space Marines of the Imperium!

Any questions feel free to post and i'm sure the events team will be along to help,

Regards,


The Events Team

Yep, I wrote it down in the first post (ill make it a bit clearer now), send the images to myself and i will get them put up for vote!

Also on a side note, when you send me the pictures, if you can put a couple of words down that explains why you went for the colours :)

L8rs everyone,

Is there a quick ref on the official guidance for SM colours/markings?

this is the one for ultramarines, you can obivously desing whatever you want, however this just gives you an idea of a possible direction. Our company is going to be 6th Company.

The obvious possibility for tasteless Snow White jokes is almost too much to bear! :twisted:
