Default Create a character Competition [RULES]

Best Character competition

Dates -

Date for Entries: 1st November - 21st November
Judging: 22nd 29th November
Winner Announced: 30th November

Rules -

This is a chance to put forward those character creations that you've come up with
You should include a full set of rules (including stats - BS, WS, cost etc.) just as a character from a codex
A small paragraph should also be included giving a breif bit of background and description about the character
Your character can come from any codex army and doesn't have to be a leader
Your entry will be judged on how realistic the character is, how balanced the rules are, how interesting it is etc.
Please PM your entry to 42 or any other competition committee member by the end of the deadline day (I run on GMT!)

Prizes -

The top three finishers in the competition will get an official TO Seal to put in your signature, in addition they will get the standard competition points.

1st Place - 10pts
2nd Place - 5pts
3rd Place - 2pts


These points can be traded in for a +1 Karma point or if you have enough points gathered even a Custom title. The more people who enter the more prizes will be handed out.


Good luck to all the entrants and get writing!

Say, if we include the fluff for the race (AKA we made up an entire race [i myself made up an entire codex]) can we use characters from made up races?

Default Re: Create a character Competition [RULES]

i had two more questions

1) can the character have a retinue?

and

2) the imperial gaurd command squads have officers that count as independent but must have an accompanyment, once the accompanyment is destroyed he is treated as an independent character. would that be allowed?

Because i was thinking about makeing a sargent character for my regiment who would have to be with nine infantry but would be independent once those 9 were dead.

Sure, although just bear in mind that people will probably be marking you on how good that made up race is too...

The character can have a retinue, although this can't be made up (so having gaurd as his retinue therefore would be fine).

In answer to your second question, that is fine too if it meets the requirments of the first answer I gave you (which again by the sound of it, does).
