Welcome one and all to Grotsmasha's Conversion Challenge 3: Captains, the third challenge, back by popular demand.

 

If you didn't catch Chaplains or Librarians, you can check them linked below

 

Chaplains HERE

Librarians HERE

 

Due to the roll-back, here's the Pips that have been lost,

gallery_48988_6285_1641.jpg  gallery_48988_6285_355.jpg  gallery_48988_6285_60.jpg

 

So the premise is pretty simple, you have 1 month to kit-bash a Captain for your army or display following the rules outlined below.

 

Only bother with the rules if you'd like a chance at the prize, if you're just in it for the funzies, skip the rules and jump on in. 


RULES:
1- The finished model is not to be painted, the conversion should be bare plastic/resin/metal, the small odd painted piece stolen from a previously painted model is OK.
2- Must have a Iron Halo (or counts-as), doesn't need to be codex legal, rule of cool here. 
3- Maximum of 25% existing models in Metal/Finecast, and any Plastic Independent/Named Characters:
---25% consists of the following combinations;
--- Head- 0% can be from any existing model
---1x Arm- 12.5%, 2x Arms- 25% either from the same or separate models
---1x Leg- 12.5%, 2x Legs- 25% either from the same or separate models
---Torso- 25%
---Things like FW's Red Scorpion upgrade pack DO NOT count to the 25% limitation.
4- Green Stuff/Sculpting putty is fine, small details to a full sculpt.
5- 1 calendar month build time, August 1st 2013 til September 2nd 2013, this guarantees everyone gets one month.
6- Multiple entries per user.
7- Captains Marshals, Master, Lords, Inquisitors, Canoness', IG Colonal, etc it's all good.
8- You must declare participation a minimum of 24hrs prior to declaring completion, having said that, I don't mind if you've had a little head start,.

9- If you wish to participate in any previous challenge, declare your intention here and post your completed models in the appropriate Completions thread. This will entitle you to use the banners/pips from that challenge, the time frame from the current challenge still applies. You'll find the links at the start of this post.

HOW TO ENTER:
Right, so now you know the rules, how do you enter?

First off, declare your participation here in this thread, with the following declaration,
 

Quote
I, {insert your name} undertake Grotsmasha's Captain Kit-Bash Challenge to kit-bash at least one {insert unit type Captain/Master/Lord} by September 2nd, 2013.

 

which will earn you a participation banner/pip to wear in your signature.

Ok, so here is the Participation banner and Pip, hopefully I've gotten it right and it's size is acceptable,
gallery_48988_6285_10079.jpg  gallery_48988_6285_83.jpg


Secondly, I will create a completion thread and link it in this thread, that will be where completed models should be posted in the following format of Five pictures,

Rear

Right
IMAG0054_zps39297b38.jpg

3 View - A raised or lowered pic showing 2 sides of the model.
IMAG0055_zps874eb602.jpg

Completing your kitbash before July 2nd will earn you a Completion banner/pip to wear in your signature (Also yet to be made).

Post your completed Captains here, Grotsmasha's Conversion Challenge 3: Captains Completion Thread

In addition to the banners/pips offered for participation/completeion, there will be a prize!!!!!!

What prize?? I hear you ask. It will be my entry into this challenge. This prize will be awarded to my favourite entry, and it will be completely based on my personal preferences and opinions.

Ok, just one last rule, HAVE FUN!!!!!, this little challenge is all about creating a cool new model for your army

If anyone has questions or needs clarification on something, just post here or shoot me a P.M.

So what's the go if data is recovered? I know cold winter had his centurion nearly done and I'm around 75% on my world eaters captain conversion.

Do we wait till everything's been sorted for the completion thread or what?

I don't think a merging of the completions will be necessary. I checked just before the site went down & no replies had been made yet.

I have a lot of sympathy for the Mantis Warriors. They've had to endure some of the worst events in WH40k. The Badab War, the Tyranid incursions, C.S. Goto. The worst.

I was too late to get in on the Librarian or Chaplain.  I'm glad for a chance to get at least one officer. ;)

Since I've been 19 for the last 40 years,  I think its unfair to be shocked by the old man looking back at me in the mirror in the morning.

In us burns a fire for vengeance that will only be quenched when we stand triumphant over the smoldering ruins of Terra. Our laughter on that day will haunt their survivors till the end of time. We will stride forth victorious through the shattered gates of their fortress, holding high aloft the defiled corpse of their rotting god as our prize.

The Challenge I have in mind for October will suit an Emperors Champion for sure.
