Default Best Poorhammer Miniature [RULES]

Best Poorhammer Miniature

Dates:
  • Entries can be submitted via a PM to Dra'Tuisich-Novae from January 1[sup]st[/sup] till January 21[sup]st[/sup].
  • Voting will take place between January 22[sup]nd[/sup] and January 29[sup]th[/sup].
  • Winners will be announced on the 30[sup]th[/sup] of January .

Prizes:

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

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

Rules:

Not everyone has the deep pockets needed for a game like Warhammer, and some have instead embarked on the hobby of "Poorhammer". This competition is an opening for members to show off their low-budget creations.

To be eligible for entry, the model must not be something created or modified by you, and must be a reasonable proxy for an actual Warhammer model - for instance, a Coke can labeled "Warhound Titan" would not be eligible, but a number of Coke cans assembled into something looking roughly like a giant walker would be just fine!

Also, the model must not be a complete or near-complete figure used to represent another model, as this defeats the very purpose of Poorhammer!

Up to three pictures of the model may be included; the mini may not have been entered in a past competition.

Can the models be built entirely from GW bitz or must they be non-GW entirely?
This should be fun!

would a model with a few (about 5%, 10% at most) GW parts be eligible?

Would a basic GW figure with heavy greenstuff sculpting to represent a character be acceptable? I'm making something like that for my guard.

I'll think on that; it sounds like an acceptable idea, particularly if it's a bit over-the-top.

So...taking an Epic scale manta and putting it on a huge piece of wood would be out of the question?

Time to bring out my Obliterator.....

But if I have fully painted it, will it still be eligible for the competition or what?

Unfortunately no, that's not possible.

No problem with the mini being painted.

Hahahaha...I think this will be one very interesting competition. However, there is the issue of Ork Stompas. They are actually made out out garbage.

No offense to Ork lovers out there.
