Default The Great Beast is come - New Tyranid Contest [RULES]

The Great Beast is come, Devourer of worlds

The new wave of Tyranid releases has brought us a plethora of new creatures to add to our swarms, and due to popular demand* we're going to let you celebrate this by running a good old fashioned New Release Contest.

An entry consists of one of the following units, using the new models where applicable.

-Pyrovore
-Venomthrope
-Hive Guard
-Gargoyles
-Raveners
-Trygon/Mawloc

If you want to enter a unit that is not specified above, you may do so, as long as the model is converted and contains at least 50% of any of the new kits!
[hr]
Dates:
  • Entries can be submitted via a PM to Thantos from April 1[sup]st[/sup] until June 7[sup]th[/sup].
  • Voting will take place between June 8[sup]th[/sup] and June 15[sup]th[/sup].
  • Winners will be announced on the 16[sup]th[/sup] of June.

[hr]
Prizes:

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

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

[hr]

Rules:
  • Up to three pictures of your entry may be submitted.
  • The model(s) must be fully painted and based
  • Your model(s) may be converted
  • Depending on number of entries, voting may be split into Master and Novice tiers
  • Your model(s) may not have been entered in a previous contest.
  • Photos of your entry may not exceed 800x600 pixels.

I've allready narrowed this down to 3 kits, now to decide which one and to find some money. I doubt there're going to be enough entries for 2 tiers (at a push you could split 6 people between two tiers :)

I may just have to buy a trygon tomorrow when I make a GW run, it's so tempting.....

I think you should say The Great Beast has arrived! in your title. It sounds much more nicer.

No unique bugs in the mix? When I saw this one the calendar, I didn't even think of the new beasties with models, I thought this was going to be a modeling intensive contest by the name featuring tervigons, tyrannofexes, bug drop pods, and all the unique buggies.

I thought so too, priest, but I suppose that's what the conversion contest is for.

Aha- now I have an excuse to get that pair I've wanted ever since I saw the most recent codex...

I'll need to find a good hunk of money though... :| And I may already need that for the conversion contest... (Though probably not nearly as much)

Hmm... :| Hopefully I'll figure something out- I've got time...
