Default New Boyz On Da Rokk [RULEZ]

Dates:
  • Entries can be submitted via a PM to Dra'Tuisich-Novae from Febuary 1[sup]st[/sup] till Febuary 21[sup]st[/sup].
  • Voting will take place between Febuary 22[sup]nd[/sup] and Febuary 27[sup]th[/sup].

Prizes:

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

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

Rules:

The recently released Ork models are pretty damn awesome, and would be a welcome addition to any sane person's model collection, whether they're a hardened Ork Warboss or a weedy Fish 'Ead. This contest is open to any single Ork model released in the last few months, with the exception of the Battlewagon.

More specifically, any of the following models are permitted:
  • Stormboyz
  • Nobz
  • Badruk
  • Zagstruk
  • Snikrot
  • Gretchin

As usual:
  • Up to three pictures of your entry may be submitted.
  • Your model must be fully painted.
  • Your model may not have been entered in a previous contest.
  • Photos of your entry may not exceed 800x600 pixels.

May I ask why the Battlewagon was excluded from this competition?

Maybe they're doing to do a best battlewagon contest soon? Maybe it's just because they don't want vehicle models in this one, I dunno...I was curious about that myself.

If it's just one single model then I might give it a go, I've got extra stormboys and nobs lying around.

The Battlewagon is a very, very large model, and can potentially contain a squads' worth of Boyz as part of the "single" model - if there's enough enthusiasm we could do a Wagon contest at some point (although entering them as Heavy Support later in the year is more practical, since we're already booked through at least June), but we thought it'd be best left out of this once since all the other permitted models are single infantry.

I agree; leaving out the Wagon is a good decision. Comparing infantry models to a giant tank just isn't feasible...

Looks like this month will be the first time I get to enter a contest - in two categories! Yay!

Cheers,

Does it have to be the NEW models or can it be a converted old one of the same models you listed?

Conversions, yes, but only using "out of the box" materials from the same box/blister. No to AoBR.
