Grotsmasha's Conversion Challenge 5:

Adepts of Mars

 

 

 

Welcome one and all to my 5th Kit-bash Challenge!!!!!  For those who don't know ehast this is all about, I have a summary thread for the first 4 Challenges HERE, within there is a break down of each Challenge and links to the Completion threads and Top 10 Completions from each Challenge.

 

Here's the links to the individual Challenges in case you'd prefer those,

 

Chaplains Completions

Librarians Completions

Captains Completions

Duels and Dioramas Completions

 

So the aim is pretty simple, you have 1 month to kit-bash an "Adept of Mars" for your army or display following the rules outlined below.

 

The following units will be acceptable for submission into the Challenge, 

  • Master of the Forge
  • Techmarine
  • Warp Smith
  • Tech Priest
  • Engineseer
  • Magos Dominus

 

The Rules will be as follows,

 

If you're in it for the Participation, have fun and ignore the rules below, you are still free to display the Banners/Pips (when they're made whistlingW.gif ), if however, you'd like a shot at the prize, you will need to read on.

 

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 clearly be identifiable as the Unit it represents, it 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%

---Servo Harnesses/Arms are fair game, no restrictions 

---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 is acceptable.


5- 1 calendar month build time, April 1st 2014 til May 2nd 2014, this guarantees everyone gets one month.


6- Multiple entries per user.


7- 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.

 

8- If you wish to participate in any previous challenge, declare your intention here and post your completed models in the Adepts of Mars Completions thread. This will entitle you to use the banners/pips from that challenge, which will also be in the Completion thread.

The time frame from the current challenge still applies.

 

9- Most importantly, HAVE FUN !!!!!

 

 

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,

I, {insert your name} undertake Grotsmasha's Adepts of Mars Kit-Bash Challenge to kit-bash at least one {insert unit type from those listed above} by May 2nd, 2014.

 

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

If you'd like to retrospectivly participate in the previous Challenges, here are their Participation Pips,

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, (Its seems my Armoury is in dire straights and lacks a Techmanine)

Right

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

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

Post your completed AoM here, Grotsmasha's Conversion Challenge 5: AoM 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.

Hopefully will be able to make 2 entries, but the first one will be an Iron Father (counts as chapter master) but will look techy enough I hope
