Welcome, distinguished members of the Necrontyr scientific community, to this scientific summit! Over the next one-twelfth of this planet's revolution, we look forward to seeing your most nightmarish, your most insane, your most inspired creations and war machines.
Please, take advantage of the full facilities available here, and if you get a chance please convey your thanks to the Naculan Chief Cryptek who has allowed us the use of this facility. Now, off you trot, let's see what you've got for us!
Welcome, everyone, to the first (hopefully) annual Crypteks' Conclave, a new event where you, distinguished Phaerons, get to display your creativity and show off your best conversion work over the next month.
For the purpose of this challenge, we'll be defining a conversion as any model that has:
-greenstuff, that is intended to alter the shape or form of the model
-bits from another kit (dual kits, i.e. Lychguard/praetorians and Immortals/Deathmarks, and if it comes up warriors/scarabs, will be handled on a case by case basis if you combine bits from the kit but not any others)
-3rd party bits
-3d printed parts, or any other material that would normally not be found in a GW model/unit
The goal of the event is to convert a model, either from the necron faction, outside of it, or certain Age of Sigmar models, to a model or unit with rules in the Necron codex (or applicable gaming system like Kill Team), though if you'd just like to have fun and build a single tomb blade, for instance, that's perfectly OK! So long as you've got a model to the conversion standard you'd like by the time the competition is over, you win yourself a completion badge.
The competition will run for a month, starting April 7th, and ending May 7th. The ending time will be midnight GMT, if it comes down to that.
To enter, you may make a vow in the following format, though so long as it contains the relevant information you may make a vow in whatever format you prefer.
I, <name>, promise to submit to the Crypteks' Conclave my creation of <model you'll be entering> for review before the Conclave dismisses.
You may vow multiple models, and if you complete one vow you may make another vow. Failing the second vow will not render you ineligible for the completion badge for your first vow.
The following badges will be up for grabs:
Completion: Warrant of Technosorcery
Including bits from other armies: Xenospecies Experimenter
Finishing a vow within 24 hours of declaring it, or 24 hours before the time expires: Time is of No Consequence
Midlight: Illuminor Szeras
