Default Vehicle Competition [RULES]

From blood-drenched, demon-possessed, multi-limbed mechanical monstrosities to ramshackle transports that look like they'd be more at home on a scrap heap, vehicles are a formidable tool for any army.[sup][1][/sup]

With the new wave of Tyranids appearing, we want to make sure that you don't park up your tank in the garage and wander off looking for big scary bugs, because, lets face it, you'll probably get eaten or dissolved or something.

So, now's your chance to dust off your hubcaps, polish your tail lights and grease up your gears, 'cause it's time for -that's right - a Vehicle Competition.

Let me hear those engines roar!

[1] - Unless you're a Tyranid.

Are scratch-build models finished allowed?

I think we'll limit it to only vehicles with official GW (or FW) rules. No VDR or house rules.

Scratch-built models in general are fine, as long as they adequately represent the model they are supposed to.

I've updated the rules accordingly to clarify both of these points.

Does this include walkers?

And i just realised I have a mechanised guard army, my modelling tabel is saturated with potential entrants, not to mention the killa kan i just finished off.

Well, thatīs it... just conventional models, not even conversions, right?
