I signed up but won't be able to finish. Too much personal life getting in the way this past month, but good luck to those that entered.

 

No worries BCK, save it for August, there'll be another chance then....... ;)

 

and with that

 

CHALLENGE CLOSED

 

I'll set to the hard task of picking a favourite.....

I won once and placed top tier in another, so I'll be looking forward to getting my title back. Any hints for the August challenge?

WOW, thanks guys, & especially Grotsmasha for running an awesome comp - I'm honoured & flattered to claim top place!

 

I certainly will be wearing the pip with pride (as soon as I'm on a proper PC - my tablet has trouble with pics!)

 

You've made me feel all warm and fuzzy inside :)

 

Looking forward to the next comp!!

 

Thanks again, T0MMY

Congratulations to all the participants, and to the winner T0MMY!

 

Grotsmasha, in regards to the walker conversion challenge- will there be different model make up % rules than in previous challenges? I don't think people are going to want to hack up dreadnoughts, especially something like a forgeworld contemptor.  When should we expect the start up thread?

Top five ? Woop ! No walkers around though, boo. Hellbrutes are well past basic stages and WS dreads are like gold dust, so I'll keep an eye out for the next challenge.

It'll start August 1st and the idea is to take a base model and add to it to bring it up to the Venerable/Relic, there'll be no % limitation on the starting model.

After Relics of War in August, we'll have a Tank Challenge starting Nov 1st. But the real fun one, will be in April, I'm really looking forward to it.

Tanks you say? I'm in on that - being a bit of a tread-head... As for walkers. Might have some bits somewhere, or may have to break some models (ahem, I mean re-acquire some pieces) because my warpsmith needs a pet hellbrute... Hmmm... Thinking now...
