Default Competitions on Demand - April

Well, it's that time of the month (or past it, or perhaps too soon, we're really not sure) but in any event, it's time to vote for which CoD contest you'd like to see next month!

The contest you choose will run alongside the other April competitions:

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.

Short Story Competition
A warmup for the Tau Online Grand Summer Story Competition, the specific criteria for the stories will be released at the start of the month.

[hr]
[hr]

Your choices are:
  • Best Army Banner/Standard/Trophy Rack
  • Creature Feature
  • Confined to Barracks
  • Best (Worst?) Battle Damage

Best Army Banner/Standard/Trophy Rack
Open to any of the GW gaming systems, this competition is to show off the venerated battle standard that represents your army!

Creature Feature
Using the Creature Feature rules, this contest would allow you to make both rules and a model your own fiendish lifeform.

Confined to Barracks
This is modeling contest for you to show off whatever models or a model do when not on the battlefield, however strange it might be!

Best (Worst?) Battle Damage
War isn't very clean, and whenever a soldier takes to the battlefield they don't expect to come back with a pristine uniform! This is a chance to show off just how bad battle damages get.

There are some damn good contests here - to be honest, I'd have liked to have voted for several. However, I decided - and I'm already making a model for this contest, so I hope it wins! As for the others, I'd quite like to see them brought up in later months if they don't win, as some of them also sound like fun.

I like the "confined to barracks" one. If I had the time, I would most certain participate in it. This makes me think of the Space Marine on the toilet reading the paper. :funny:

Actually, that came to mind for the Battle Damage. I imagined it as, the Crisis suit was damaged and they were fixing it.

...I just might be able to take part in the Looter one...

Well, chances are, if all of them get at least a few votes, we'll put them up again in later polls - or, if it's a close poll we might go ahead and put them straight onto the calendar as we've done before.

I voted for the Battle Damage, because I find that I have a tendency to go over the top with it :P Just look at my Chaos dread to see why :P But I also voted for this because I think its the only one that I have the smallest chance in...

I think that the Creature Feature idea is the best on up there. Not only have I had a long-time love of the Creature Feature, but it's an excuse for me to work on my GS skills.

Yes, the creature feature gives us an opportunity to see unique models, sounds like the best option there, although the rest are quite good.
