Well, well. I think I have the perfect monstrousity for this. Time to get writing!

EDIT: hmmm... Is the 200-300 words a hard rule, or more of a guideline, because theres a lot to say about the character I have planned

To make it a level playing field I'm afraid I'll have to say no to the model as not everyone can paint/model. It'd definately be good to see it when the competition is over though!

It's more of a guidline, although if you submit excessive amounts of fluff we might ask you to cut some out!

Cheers,

Woohoo! I've been waiting for this competition to come back!

If I'm lucky I'll be able to snipe Wargamer by a fourth of a point again!

Judge-Marshal Krown is going to be hard to top... I'll have to find a way.

I've submitted mine - it's probably a bit pathetic compared to the other entries, but it's something.
