When you say 'may be' in the warhammer universe, does that mean that we can enter non-warhammer stories as well?

Sorry, the meaning was "may be from either Warhammerverse" rather than "may be Warhammer related".

Only 40k or Fantasy stories.

Must create something brilliant... perhaps a story about the Ultramarines defending Macragge from a Hive Mind race in an epic battle...

I made a story based on warhammer last year... Not for a competition though, will I be allowed to enter that or do I have to write a new story exclusively for this competition?

Edit: And does it have to be a full story or can it be a chapter of a longer story

Vendak - As long as you haven't entered it into an official Tau Online competition, then that's fine. It doesn't matter whether it's written just for this contest or not.

To cover the edit - it can be a part of a larger story, you just ought to be sure people will be able to pick it up (characters and plotlines with no previous introduction would be hard to follow if you yank a chapter from the middle of an involved story, for example).
