In the 31st Millennium, there is only plasticâ€¦
Here it is, our quarterly issue-themed contest.Â Seeing as how Issue 6 revolves around a Pre-Heresy theme, we decided why not have a contest in the same vein?Â However, when most people think “Pre-Heresy” they think Primarchs and the original 18 Legions, but there is so much more…
Rules: Create a model that would be found in the 31st Millennium. This could be a Pre-Heresy Space Marine, an alien race that was expunged during the Great Crusade, or whatever your creative mind can come up with! You must convert, paint and create a short piece of fluff that describes what/who your creation is and their place in the 31st Millennium. This is a very open competition and is only restricted to the Pre-Heresy time-period.
Judging: The competition will be judged as follows:
Conversion (20 points) â€“ Judges will be looking for creativity, posing and originality. This is the most important part of the competition so it is wise to include a picture of the unpainted model as well so it is easier to tell the amount of work you put into it (which a spiffy paint job can cover up).
Painting (10 points) â€“ Pretty self explanatory, judges will look for good (and appropriate) paintjobs! By appropriate we mean if you paint your Pre-Heresy Blood Angel Blue with Pink shoulder pads, donâ€™t expect many points.
Prizes: Thanks to Matt at miniwargaming.com for donating gift certificates to their awesome store!
Amounts will be $50 for first place, $25 for second and $10 for third!
So how do you enter?Â Simple.Â Send us an email at email@example.com with “contest” in the subject line by midnight October 5th.Â All you need to include is a short (2-5 sentences) summary of what your entry is and how it pertains to the 31st Millennium and some pictures showing your model before it was painted and after.Â If you would like to include a list of bitz used or whatever, feel free.Â It will probably help the judges figure out how converted it actually is so it wouldn’t hurt!Â The three winners will be featured in Issue 6 of the mag and all entries will be featured on the blog.Â The prizes are pretty awesome, so it’s worth a shot!
Good luck everyone, and I look forward to your entries!
