Is there an age limit, if none then i need to start working on mephiston.
Captain Tycho was like that crazy uncle everyone has, on the outside they are rough and mean but on the inside all nice and psychotic.

Is there anyway of submitting pics from a 35mm camera? My digital one is bust and Ive recently started painting up a few units.

Ok to answer some question:

Age limit/location: We have never and will never have age limits on a contest. We also have never restricted contests based on your world location. Now there is a chance that if you live in Italy or Malaysia or a few other world areas that yes, there may be an issue getting you a prize should you win but you'll have to work something out with the sponsor on that if it comes down to it.

Pictures: The pictures listed are how we want the shots.

Old Models/Space Hulk models: We haven't excluded models based on age or the game they come from. As long a model can meet the game legal requirements of the codex entries as listed you can use it. So yes a RT era marine with a bolter works just as well as a current plastic marine with a bolter. Same goes for a SH terminator (1st, 2nd or 3rd edition) However the old RT era Marine with a shuriken catapult would not.


Entry threads: Yes, since you the membership will be picking the "People's Choice" winners there will be entry threads (as there have been for all the contests).

Demons, Wolf Riders, Defiliers, Soul Grinders, Etc. : As the rules say:

If you don't see it in the list then you can't use it.


So that would be a no on all of those and this is intentional. It is possible we may expand the criteria in future events but for this first one we are keeping it small.
Thanks to twistedthunder we will be removing the Daemon forum from the site as well. :D :)

Brother Hadafix: You could scan your 35mm pictures but we won't be accepting photos in the mail if that is what you are asking.

I take it this means that Brother Artemis (and conversions) from the Inquisitor range are out as far as a large entry is considered.

That's right. Same goes for the 120+mm FW statues and the busts.

If the turn out is good this year we'll look at adding/changing categories for next year.

Will have to see what I get on the 25 December then. :D Good reason to give some units the best paint job I can though.

Cool, another painting contest. Always fun to enter and with the arrival of the new Wolves codex I actually picked up a paint brush again. I'll have to think of something to enter then. And for the people asking silly question, read my signature...

Consider me in. Can we start WIP threads purely for the competition in this sub-form?
In Inquisitor, a Space Marine can take a krak grenade, pull out the pin, eat the grenade, throw the pin, and the thrown pin will actually kill a normal man, whereas the Space Marine won't even have indigestion.

If it takes more than 20 bolter rounds to take something down, maybe you should leave it alone...

Just a thought - how many entries can one member enter into the competition? Is it one per person?
