Default Competions on Demand [March]

Shamelessly copy-pasted from Hive Lords thread last month...

A week before the beginning of the month, a poll will go up (this one!) with four options. Each option is a potential competition; the winning one will be held the next month along with the two fixed contests. Every member of the forum may cast one vote each, and every vote counts- so pick wisely!

Remember, you should be voting for the competition you would like to enter yourself - not the one you want to see other people enter! Otherwise, we only get a few entries, which isn't as fun.

We've got some beauties lined up for you this time - I, personally, wouldn't be disappointed seeing any of these run in March.
The competition that wins will run alongside the two other contests:

Terragen - Digital Landscape
In response to the craze sweeping the Artwork board following FT's Tutorial, this contest will be open to pictures created using the digital landscaping program Terragen. One image per entry, and this must not have been edited using any other program (nor use any of the advanced features for subscribers only). The size of the image to be submitted will be confirmed closer to the start of the competition.
The brief (and simple) tutorial, along with details on how to obtain the (free!) program can be found here.

Kill Team
Kill Teams, as detailed in the full 40k rulebook, are excellent opportunities to use your creativity, imagination, and modelling skills to create a group of highly individual and characterful models. Entries can be a legal Kill Team from any 40k race, so start preparing your models now!

[hr]

Here are your options:
    • Muscial Artist
    To accompany last month's Dancing Competition, this is a competition to show of a mini who happens to be a musical artist in the 41st Millennium!
    • Maccragge Marines Contest
    We've all got them lying around, these one-pose wonders are a step up from what we used to get in the 40k boxed sets (older players will know what I'm talking about) but they are still lacking somewhat. Stick on your conversion hat and make them look good! Single model entries only, so make it good!
    • Looter Competition
    Most of the time, looted models we see are courtesy of the Orks, and the "looting" part is long over. This is an active competition about the act of looting itself, be it a Dark Eldar dragging away a slave, Tau Earth Caste or the Adeptus Mechanicus picking at blasted enemy machines for technology to analyze, or anything else you can think of.
    • Vintage Model
    One for the veterans and the collectors out there, this one is open to a single model from times of yore - minimal conversions allowed, but it's mainly about seeing what a lick of paint can do a chronologically challenged figurine.

    The winner of the CoD poll will be announced at the end of the month, shortly before the rules for all three March contests are put up - so keep an eye out for it!

    Happy voting,

    Hive Lord, Dra'Tuisich-Novae, and the Competition Committee

I say the vintage competition is fun. I have a vintage Chaos Space Marines with plasmagun (metal) that I have gotten some time ago. Perhaps it is time to paint it up.

I'd say it's open to either, with the provision that Fantasy entries must be converted; just posting a "stock" Regiment Musician is against the spirit of things, I feel.

If it's the musician contest, I want to see someone do the Bob Marley Ork that was in the character contest

well... i actually don't have any macragg marines if that one wins...


If it's vintage, how old would the model have to be?


for musician, can it be ANY instrument? or would it have to be practical?
