Default Tau Online Grand Summer Story Competition

Tau Online Grand Summer Story Competition

Dates -

The deadline for entries (submitted to 42) is the 14th of August.
Voting is between the 15th and 29th of August with the winner announced on the 30/31st.

Prizes -

1st Place - Warhammer box set worth equivalent to a Tactical Squad/Fire Warrior Team (e.g. 18, $45 CAD, $35 USD, 30 EUR)
2nd Place - Warhammer box set worth equivalent to a Crisis Suit/Attack Bike
3rd Place - Warhammer blister worth equivalent to a 2-Infantry or 1 Squad Leader blister pack.

(The top 3 all receive official TO winners seals too, Competition Points, and Custom Titles ).

Rules -

Ready your keyboards! The Grand Summer Story Competition is open for any fluff piece based in the Warhammer universe, and must be between 3,000 and 10,000 words long.

There are some fantastic prizes on offer so over this summer it is well worth having a dabble at fluff writing! Even if you have never written a story before, why not enter into the Biggest Fluff Competition this site has ever had before and try your hand!

When you say "Warhammer Universe", are we talking just 40k or Fantasy as well?

If only I wasn't too busy with the Epic...... :'(

Anyway, best of luck to everyone who does enter. This is going to be an awesome competition. The people who end up winning will, believe me, truly deserve those prizes...

As per normal you will. The voting will probably be done 50% weighted on a public vote, the other 50% decided by the Competition Committee Panel, although nothing has been finalised as of yet.

Cheers,
