Default Grand Genestealer Paint-off [RULES]

Currently: 0 places.

The Tyranid threat has infiltrated and infested our galaxy, (especially recently with the new Space Hulk game and new codex) and no Tyranid organism is better at spreading the niddy goodness than the fearsome Genestealer. Diverse, adaptable and awesomely gribbley, they are by far one of my favourite Tyranids.


This contest is a little different to other contests in the fact TO Competition HQ will provide the miniatures for you to paint.

The first 15 members to sign on for this competition will be sent in the post a New Space Hulk Genestealer for them to paint, then photograph and enter into this competition.

Sign on by PM'ing your postal details to Thantos.

Please think carefully before signing up, as if you get sent a genestealer then don’t enter it, the next thing I’ll be sending you in the mail is a melta-bomb ... (you think im joking? Hahaha >)

[hr]

Dates:

• Signup in thread from the 8th March - 14th March
• All Genestealers will be dispatched after 14th March
• Entries may be submitted via PM to Thantos between the 15th March and the 15th April

•Voting will take place between 16th April and 23rd April
•Winners announced on the 24th April

Prizes:

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

(The top 3 all receive official TO winners seals as well, and of course you get to keep your free genestealer).

Rules:

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


The member Line up for the Grand Genestealer Paint-Off is as follows:

[b]
  • Auxiliary Priest
  • Circus
  • dontlookdown
  • Duality.
  • Grindgobble Witherfume
  • HiveFleetGoliath
  • Joey (Go Canada Go) Goldcoast (Using own genestealer)
  • Lord Scythican
  • MrChaos
  • Ollie Williams
  • pawl
  • peyo
  • Scoutfox
  • Thantos
  • Wyvern
  • Yes Man
  • Zenai

To clarify a few questions on what you can do with your genestealer:

-Genestealers can be mounted on a base if you wish. No larger than 60mm diameter (approx).
-Conversions are allowed and encouraged, using bitz from other kits is fine.
-Same goes for sculpting extra details - do it if you want.
-As far as taking your entry as far as a mini diorama - You may use another single model on your base which can be interacting with your genestealer if you wish to. The interacting model should be no larger than large infentary size and should not be more awesome than the stealer Keep the focus on the genestealer if you are going to use other bitz and minis - its a Genstealer paint off after all. (An example of a bad entry would be a scratch built mega armoured Ork warboss trampeling the genestealer into the chokeing dirt and lopping it head off with an awesome converted power claw of death). Use your discretion here.

And of course you can just paint it straight and enter it like that.


Extra:
[spoiler]
Obviously some genestealers in the space hulk set are cooler than others, its random luck which one you receive. Conversions can spice it up after all.
If there is a lot more interest than 15 members we may increase the contest size.
Obviously you will have to disclose your postal address Via PM to competition HQ to receive your genestealer, don't sign up if you do not wish to do so.
Competition may be tiered if we get a lot of entries back. [/spoiler]

To what extent are basing conversions allowed? Can we whack it on a bigger, more scenic base for example?

I'm willing to do this. Sounds like a challenge, and I'd be obligated to enter a contest that actually involves modeling!

Plenty of scope for bases, mount it on anything you like. Although its not a diorama after all, as a rule of thumb, try and keep it on under a 100mm diameter base.

Conversions and dramatic bases are encouraged. :P
