2012 Summer Challenge, TALE OF X GAMERS

Postby Baardah » 30 May 2012, 12:35

Summer 2012 Challenge

Tale of X Gamers

Assignment

Create a legal 1000 point Warhammer fantasy Battles armylist. All armies, including Legion of Azgorth and Indy GT Dogs of War, are allowed
Write a 500-1000 words background for your army, describing theme, etc.
Build your army and paint it. Take pictures of models at minimum 2 stages, Buildt/primed and finished painted
The entry also requires atleast one armyshot at the finished stage.

To avoid dissaloving already started projects from entering, I'll allow 1 Unit or 250 points(aproximately) of already finished models to be part of the armyproject

All participants should create their own blog thread in the meadow of arts/P&M challenge forum, where you put your armylist, fluff entry, and pictures. Then post a link to your Blog in this thread.

When the contest goes to voting the following criteria should be weighted:
-Does army theme and Background match
-Does the armylist match the fluff
-Level of painting
-Conversions
-Cohesiveness
-Overall appearance

We have tried to conjure up some prize for the winner, but the asrai.org funds are not sufficient to cover any prize. So instead, the winner will get a badge on their avatar naming them as the reigning Challenge champion. In addition the winner will get a free commision paintjob on 1 unit or 1 big monster, terrainpiece or similar, if they want. The painter will be yours truly (go to the links in my signature to see what lvl of painting i can accomplish).
Now many of you might be thinking: Meeh, i wouldnt want a paintjob from that guy, I can do better myself. If so, you are by no means obliged to cash in on your "prize". BUT, there will not be another prize. Im sorry....
EDIT: There will be a prize for the winner. A Regiment box worth upto 20£ choosen by the winner! This is in addition to the above mentioned treats to the winner :)
You have until September 15th to finish your entry
LET THE TALE OF X GAMERS begin!

That item would be in every list.

We have three weeks? I thought it was only one unless the deadline is not the 15th September anymore?

I updated my entry today and I'm nearly there. Reckon that I'll have it all wrapped up next week - but if I have a fortnight longer than I thought then perhaps I can think up a little more for my entry :sexy:

I think the deadline got extended until the end of September. You'll have to wait for Baardah to confirm though (he's in charge!!)

In all honesty, my chances of finishing went out of the window a long time ago. But as I can't win the prize anyway, it doesn't matter :D

My camera stopped working, so I am unable to take any pictures excepting with my iPad whose pictures are worse than the standard phone.

I am also nowhere close to finishing, still need to paid quite a lot... :(

I'll be done by Christmas. Maybe. I am still working though, but I haven't finished anything yet. I am almost done with both weapon teams and have two of three characters ready to paint (plus a mount). The main problem are the fifty remaining Clanrats and Stormvermin. I managed to paint forty in July, but no work in August took away any possibility of finishing in time.
