Default Conversion Contest [RULES]

Assembling and painting a model is all fine and well, but we all know deep down that it's not going to really feel like your own personalised army unless you've tenderly applied conversions to every last model.

A well-converted model is always something you should be proud of, so we've generously decided to give you the opportunity to show it off - and we may even chuck in some shiny seals and competition points to the best ones. Sounds like a pretty good incentive to enter if we've ever heard one.

This contest is open to any single converted 40k model.

To get a better idea of the conversion, at least one of the photos of the model must be unpainted - the others can be painted or unpainted as you wish.

  • Entries can be submitted via a PM to Thantos from April 1[sup]st[/sup] until May 22[sup]nd[/sup].
  • Voting will take place between 23[sup]rd[/sup] and May 30[sup]th[/sup].
  • Winners will be announced on the 30[sup]th[/sup] of May.


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

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


  • Up to three pictures of your entry may be submitted.
  • At least one of the photos must be of the unpainted model [EDIT - May be primed]
  • The model does not have to be painted
  • Your model must be converted in some obvious way.
  • Converted Forge World models are allowed
  • Super-heavies are not allowed
  • Depending on number and scope of entries, voting may be split into Vehicle and Non-Vehicle categories
  • Your model may not have been entered in a previous contest.
  • Photos of your entry may not exceed 800x600 pixels.

I was going to enter an orky contraption, until i realized that you need a photo of the unpainted model...

Now when i convert something, usually it stays converted but not unprimed for a period of maybe 12 hours max, before it is primed and then painted over the course of a day or 2 (sometimes closer to a week for vehicles). Am i better entering it in a different comp?

That said, id love to enter, but considering all the orks i bought 2 weeks ago, i dont feel like buying more models in the next month...Sorry if i sound like i am ranting.

EDIT: Perhaps i'll hold the orkyness for the "Open" competition in a few months time But unfortunately count me out for this one.....this year :P

ooooh- I got the perfect idea for this...

But can I execute it? I'm hoping I'll be able to just order the bits I'll be needing... :|

It'll be better than my first idea if its possible though. (My first idea was one of my converted stealth suits- but then I saw we need a pic of the unpainted model... No dice for the stealth suits... :| )

I have already finished painting all my conversions I don't usually keep unpainted models lying around unless they are unbuilt.

Entry sent.

When I made this I was unaware that a conversion comp existed and I had a brand new, long-unopened bottle of glue... which was leaky. I'm angry at poor crafting skills, probably make me lose. Oh well.

There was another model I think would be much, much better suited for this, but she's already painted.
