So basically one model that .. can be converted, and modified but shows power/skills i presume?

Lets say a Cadian with 2 chainswords .. would that fit the description?

hmm what about a thrown weapon... like say... a stick of dynamite. Is that to "ranged" since it would blow up a significant portion of the combat? and 2 pistols count as ranged correct? even though they do count as an extra cc weapon?

I got a Digi camra and memory card so I'm gonna start with the compititions...

Would a model with another model sticking out of it's wepon work? For example a choas space marine with a gaurdsmen impailed on his sword as he kicks another gaurdsmen?

With that deadline I need to start working fast though...

Hmm...
I'm going to have to say any weapon that involves the part that causes the damage leaving the hand is a ranged weapon, including grenades and pistols.

Keeping in mind that only one model is allowed to be entered, I'd say it's borderline...
That sounds more like a duel/diorama to me... but I reckon if you make it very clear which is the main model, and any other 'models' on it's base are dead (so as to just count as, say, a scenic base, or accessories), it should be OK

Good luck ;D

Hum...well a Kroot rifle do count as a melee weapon...
and as long as the main "weight" of the weapon lies with the chainsword,
I'll allow it.

Good luck.
