Grotsmasha's Conversion Challenge 7:

TreadHeads and Fly Boys

 

 

 

Welcome one and all to my 7th 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

Relics of War Completions

 

This time we have a two month, two part Challenge. Part one is to create a brand new, unique vehicle. You will need to create a small fluff piece, as you would find alongside any unit in a Codex. You will also need to provide a stat line, a points cost and any upgrades available to it.

The second part is to model the tank or flyer variant that you created in part one. Any chassis from any board appropriate army is acceptable, as well as any "tank" you can create.

 

So what constitutes new? 

It could be a completely new, never before seen vehicle.

It could be a previously unused weapon load-out.

It could be a new pattern of an existing vehicle.

It could be a modified transport capacity from an existing vehicle.

It could be a vehicle from the fluff that has never had rules or a model (Custode Grav-Rhino I'm looking at you...).

 

 

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, 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 a Tank, whether its wheeled, tracked or legged or a Flyer


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- 2 calendar month build time, October 1st 2014 til December 2nd 2014, this guarantees everyone gets two full months.


6- Multiple entries per user, separate photos per entry.


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 Treadheads and Fly Boys 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 Treadheads and Fly Boys Kit-Bash Challenge to kit-bash at least one {insert unit type from those listed above} by December 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,

REAR

3 VIEW, a raised or lowed picture capturing two sides of the model

Completing your kitbash before December 2nd will earn you a Completion banner/pip to wear in your signature.


Post your completed RoW here, Grotsmasha's Conversion Challenge 7: Treadheads and Fly Boys 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
