Members of the B&C are challenged with the modelling and painting a power armoured kill team of Adeptus Astartes from select Chapters that participated in the Badab War.
The purpose of this challenge is to find imagery suitable to decorate the finished Shadow War: Badab rules that will be published here at the B&C for download. The winning squad will be featured at the bottom of page 9. And the member submitting the winning squad will also receive some other small prizes to be announced later.
Below are images showing the Chapters that participated in the campaign. The image on the left shows the color schemes as depicted in the original Badab War Index Astartes article from Warhammer 40,000 1st Edition ("Rogue Trader"). The image on the right shows the revised schemes, as depicted in the Forge World Badab War books. Click on each image for a larger version:
Sons of Medusa
* The First Founding Chapters aren't eligible because we want to focus on other Chapters.
What to Submit: One image of your power armoured (legacy) Adeptus Astartes kill team, created per these rules (and these rules) and representing one of the eligible Chapters shown above. Your kill team may include up to 1 special operative (but doesn't have to include one, if you don't want). No Primaris Marines! The Badab War took place before the Primaris Marines came into play, so we're looking for legacy Space Marine models.
Members may submit as many kill teams as they want, but may only submit one (1) image in jpg format of each kill team. The image should be at least 800 pixels across, and should be cropped to minimize wasted space. No backgrounds or terrain are necessary - a different image of the winning kill team will be used in the rules and that will be taken later. You can find tutorials on photographing your miniatures here.
E-mail your submissions to Brother Tyler at . Include your display name in the e-mail. Pictures of entries should not be posted or saved here at the B&C (e.g., in your galleries or in topics, whether within the Forge or your faction-specific forum). Once the members have voted for their favorite, then you can post WIPs and what-not to show everyone how you did it and how it came out.
Deadline to enter: Midnight 29 July 2018. Basically, as long as it is in my e-mail inbox when I log in first thing on Monday 30 July, it will be allowed.
The members will vote for their favorite and I'll contact the winning member so that we can discuss the composition of the image that will be used in the finished rules (and it will include either terrain or a plain background, so keep that in mind).
In addition to the winning kill team, one or two other miniatures from among those entered will also be included in the finished rules. Selection of these models will be my prerogative, based on variety (i.e., the additional miniature(s) will differ from the winning kill team in terms of colors and lineage, along with whatever I find aesthetically pleasing). I'll also contact the creators of images for the additional Chapter(s) that will be used so that we can discuss final image composition.
If you have any questions, post them here.
