May I be the first to say, sa-WEET! Looking forward to the awesome entries we'll see when this wraps up.

Two quick questions:

1: The Single Model section, for Codex: Dark Angels, "Codex Dark Angels 4th Edition: Named Characers, excluding Sammael and generic characters (Interrogator Chaplain, Chaplain, Company Master, Librarian, Techmarine)." I'm assuming the "excluding Sammael and generic characters..." bit just means Sammael is excluded from this category, but generic characters are allowed. However, the way it's worded seems to imply generic characters are forbidden as well.

2: Does any sort of auto-color cleanup for photos taken count as manipulation? (I know I've had issues in the past where pictures come out funny no matter what adjustments to my lighting setup I make, effectively requiring a color re-balance in Photoshop to make them even worth looking at)

1. Fixed that wording -- Sammael being "bike" mounted would be in the Large Model Category.

2. We want raw pictures here. No airburshing, no star/sunbursts no special added backgrounds or lighting effects.

I'm digging the competition :yes: Sounds like a good idea. I know I'm not going to win, as my painting and converting both suck horribly, but such is life :geek:

Cheers,

Wow, this sounds amazing! A question. You specifically state entries have to be 40k-themed, so are Pre-Heresy-themed miniatures forbidden? Obviously some models work in either setting, but I'm thinking about PH traitor legions for example - would PH red Thousand Sons or white/blue World Eaters in PH livery be excluded?

Really looking forward to seeing the entries!

Is this restricted to UK and US or is it possible for others from other countries to enter. (seeing as money prices are involved and in regards to shipment costs)

Since the top shot of the Large Model/Vehicle entries is optional, maybe participants could get some leeway?
The front/right/back photos work for infantry models because of their often more round shapes and dynamic poses. For vehicles, especially such as the Land Raider, these types of photos makes it harder to get an overall impression of the vehicle. Maybe the optional shot could be a 'perspective shot', taken from an angle so that you can see multiple side, like front, left and top at the same time?

I take it that Space Hulk terminator minis, so long as they're based on 40mm round bases and painted/converted to be clearly a termie from one of the permitted codices, are acceptable?

You might want to clarify whether Defilers are allowed, too -- they're mentioned at the start of the vehicles category, but they're not actually in the main list in the vehicles category (not that I am expecting to enter a Defiler).

My stupid question of the day:
I have a squad I want to paint, but I have altered the special weapon guys a little bit.
One is holding a flamer with one hand and instead of giving another marine a plasmathrower I gave him two plasma pistols as a count-as plasma thrower.
Is this legal to enter in the contest?

Assumedly there will be a thread that contains all of the entries so that we can vote on them too...? When will this be up and running?

Really pleased to see this competition and really look forward to seeing the entries!

i don't understand why we can't enter daemons of chaos models, since we're allowed to post them on the site in general it doesn't really make sense. :(

CATEGORY 3 - LARGE MODEL/VEHICLE

I presumed Space Wolf Thunder Wolf riders would be in this category like regular bike upgrades, but theres no mention of them. Does this make them an ineligible choice for the competition?

I may be wrong but i think thats because even though chaos daemons are allowed on the forum, they aren't a PA army. I'm pretty sure they're allowed on the forum because of their split from being a part of chaos space marines to their own race.

as for an entry.....hmmm.....got a nice captain in the works, along with maybe a LR.

Are Space Hulk Terminators allowed ?

My guess is that it was omitted as I don't think the list has been updated properly since before the Space Wolf 'dex was released.

Well, if Generic Daemons were allowed while Chaos Daemons weren't, even though they use the exact same models, it would get pretty complicated right? ;) But yeah, they're not included in the competition as they are technically not "Power Armor".

thats pretty stupid since it's treating daemons player like their 2nd class.
