Default Unmodified Squad Member Painting Competition [RULES]

Tau Online Best Unmodified Squad Member

Dates -

The deadline for entries (submitted to 42) is the 21st of June.
Voting begins on the 22nd of June and ends on the 30th.
Winner announced on the 31th of June.

Prizes -

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

(The top 3 all receive official TO winners seals too).

Rules -

This competition is open for any 'normal' squad member of any squad from a Troops selection in the Force Organization Chart. The model may not be a specialist (heavy/special weapon trooper) or a leader (Sergeant, Shas'Ui, etc.). The squad member may not be converted in any way, and must be based sensibly but not over-elaborately. The model must fit onto the standard-sized base for the squad, although for almost all Troops choices this will be a regular Infantry base. As usual, only three images may be submitted of the model, and it may not have been entered in past competitions.

Hmmm. I might try to finish doing my special guardsmen project.

Erm...one question though.

I entered my Fire Warriors in the last Troops Painting Competition that just ended recently.

Now, I intend to paint all my Fire Warriors in the same colour scheme. If I were to enter an entirely new Fire Warrior but painted in the same colour scheme, is that possible? The major issue here is that you all will think I just reused one of my Fire Warriors from the last competition for this competition. I will not have any way to prove it to you guys too.

How? ???

It does seem a little off to have a single-model Troops-only competition immediately after the Troops unit competition. I still don't have anything in my current army that is admissible.

Have your perhaps got any Kroot you could enter instead for a change? If you don't have anything but Firewarriors, I'm sure it can't be too hard to steal a marine/gaunt/gaurdsmen etc. from a friend and paint up for the competition. It might be fun painting something totally different - and you can afford to spend plenty of time on just the one model!

Well perhaps this is the time to get your paintbrushes out again Khanaris and whip something up! Even if you don't have a model to paint, like I told Neohunter, why not paint something new some scratch especially for the competition? Competitions are a good incentive to paint new things and make new additions to your army, to brush up painting skills and develop new ones!

Cheers,

Nope. I don't have any Kroot Carnivores. As for Space Marines, all I have at the moment is a box of 5 Close Combat Terminators but they are no good as they belong to the Elite choice.

Its okay. I will give this competition a pass. Thanks for replying so fast though!

No problem. If you do stumble across a basic trooper of another race somehow though don't hesitate to give it a lick of paint and enter!

Cheers,
