Grotsmasha's Conversion Challenge 6:

Relics of War

 

 

 

Welcome one and all to my 6th Kit-bash Challenge!!!!!  For those who don't know what 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

Adepts of Mars Completions

 

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

 

This Challenge is all about Walkers, the following are viable entries;

  • Sentinals =>  into DIY "Special" Sentinal varient 
  • Dreadnoughts => into a Venerable Dreadnought
  • Contemptors => into Relic or Chapter Specific Contemptor
  • Helbrute/Defiler/Soul Grinder/Mauler Fiend => into Khorne/Nurgle/Slaanesh/Tzeench alligned models
  • Imperial Knights => into a Warlord or Chaos-Alligned model

If I've forgotten any walkers, or you would like to suggest an inclusion let me know and I'll be sure to include them here, in the Sign-Up thread.

 

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 being named Challenge Favourite, 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- No Part restrictions this time, go nuts thumbsup.gif


4- Green Stuff/Sculpting putty is fine, small details to a full sculpt is acceptable.


5- 1 calendar month build time, August 1st 2014 til September 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 Relics of War 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 Relics of War Kit-Bash Challenge to kit-bash at least one {insert unit type from those listed above} by September 2nd, 2014.

 

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

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,

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

Post your completed RoW here, Grotsmasha's Conversion Challenge 6: RoW 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. However, differing from previous challenges, I will be selling my entry on eBay with the proceeds being donated to the B&C. I will, however still be choosing a favourite and awarding them a unique Banner and Pip.

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.

 

Cheers,

Jono

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.

I, oldschoolsoviet, undertake Grotsmasha's Relics of War Kit-Bash Challenge to kit-bash at least one Khornate Defiler by September 2nd, 2014.

 

My only concern is it's condition, being second hand and previously undercoated, along with Ork glyph plates plastered in places. Some dire TLC required.

Okay if I get decent photos to counter the black upon completion ?

A couple of questions.

 

 

  • Contemptors => into Relic or Chapter Specific Contemptor

 

Does this mean, for example, I could not modify a Legion specific Contemptor? Does it have to be a stock version?

 

 


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

Honestly, I've been considering changing that. I think I'll give the option to the Challenge Favourite to claim it and if they don't want it, then I'll donate the proceeds.

Cool on the contemptor.

 

And I didn't even notice the bit about the unique banner previously, so yeah, there is something for the prize. I was just curious, but I don't enter these for the reward. I enter these to crush my enemies, see their entries driven before me, and to hear the lamentations of their sculpting tools.

Well, I got one win under my belt, and came damn to winning a second one, so we'll see how this one goes. I think it's great that the number of entries and the level of competition increases with each one of these.

 

Now I just have to figure out how to improve upon a Contemptor that's already Legion specific.

(Grotsmasha, as Knights are allowed, I figured the LoS would also be allowed...)

 

I started this project two hours before the OP, but that was in VERY early stages of the project. Nothing had been glued then just some sawing of the defiler pelvis... Can I still enter?

Here's what the project looks like now. Still nowhere near completion, but getting along. Still needs TONS of scultping, glueing, dremmelling, pinning and shaving to do. biggrin.png

Basically anything that isn't an out-of-the-box Sentinel, but is more than a weapon swap. It doesn't even need to be game legal.

EDIT: It doesn't even need to start as a Sentinel kit, the finished model just needs to reasonably counts-as a Sentinel.

 

Cheers,
