Or you could just allow the use of any primaris model to be used, and if someone wants to cut it up then they have to. Otherwise it is quite limited with just the specific mentioned above.

at least with standard primaris they are a blank slate to convert.

Are Brotherbood of the Lost or any entries from the special project forum allowed? Would be cool to see some lightning bearers models etc


Rule of cool applies here, I want to see some Lightning Bearers too, just remember this isn't a painting challenge, it's purely a building/converting challenge :tu:

The four listed above are the four affected by the 25% Rule and will need to be cut up to be used as a compliant entry, EVERY other Primaris model can use their torso/legs assembly (this INCLUDES LIEUTENANTS) unrestricted, as long as the final model LOOKS like the model is representing from the list, it doesn't matter where the parts come from.

To be absolutely clear, there are no models or bits outright banned from the challenge, there is only limitations on how much of some models one can use.

Cheers,
Jono

Sounds great. I'm already excited about the autumn for duels or tiny dioramas.

Question ... so if i wanted to convert a Khorgorath into a DP with wings with warp talons, that would be ok? I intend to add quite a bit to the model, more armour, make the hands, head swap etc.

I'm thinking of doing a word bearer's praetor, but he will be a complicated model using parts from four+ FW minis (Event-only Librarian, Kor Phaeron, Erebus, Cataphractii Praetor, etc).  The problem is that he will absolutely have to be painted in sub-assemblies, because my hand just isn't tiny/steady enough to paint him once assembled with so many parts in the way (especially the cape from the Event-Only librarian).  I like the idea of this contest, but wouldn't want to risk gluing together such an expensive conversion and then breaking him back apart.  Could we photograph the sub-assemblies unpainted and then the partially-painted glued-together complete model?  I'd do the blue-tack thing, but I've never had good luck getting tacked-together minis to look good for a photo.

I don't think I'd accept an unassembled model. Since the model is FW Resin (at least in part) will you be pinning joints (I'd recommend it)? Because if you are, the pins *should* be good enough to hold everything in place.

 

Regardless, if you can't make it work, don't risk ruining your model to take part in the challenge :tu:

Jono

What about a blue-tacked model?  The sub assemblies as-planned will basically be the cape, main model (one arm will be magnetized anyway for changing wargear), shoulder pads, scenic base, and head... so so long as the presence of blue tack holding those parts together can be forgiven...

Whoa the first one, the Warlords one, is perfect to force me get started on my Iron Warriors Daemon Prince that I wanted to create from a FW Decimator. However, since I wasn't planning to use any named character's parts, does the 25% rule still apply?

I've never converted a model so I'm not sure I'll be ready to participate.

I also want to participate since I actually had two models that would take some converting (captain on bike) but since someone else is already going to do that, I think I'll force myself to start on a model I planned on for my first love army - Necrons! I have a Lord and I bought some milliput because I've been wanting to do some conversion work anyway, since my poor Necrons have probably the least variety of models per army (barring Knights of any kind simply for heir size) so maybe I'll decapitate the little guy and find a head elsewhere (like AdMech or Tau or something and using some milliput to change it a bit - or maybe I'll just slather it in the milliput and try my hand at sculpting to do something really weird like horns or a TS style crown (doubt I could pull it off but would be fun to try lol), looking forward to participating!

5- 1 calendar month build time, February 1st 2018 til February 2nd 2018, this guarantees everyone gets one month.

 

 

Is this supposed to mean January 1st til February 2nd?

The challenge runs for a whole month, hopefully your hits will arrive with enough time to assemble it still.
