I say it's a go!
Even if the same contest was repeated with new entries every so often (albeit not for HQ or unique categories) then it might motivate soem more people...
And with a new codex on the horizon, I can see there being a flurry of Trygons in the first 3 months :p

I'm hoping for some more art contests not limited to tyranids. But also some limited to tyranids too.

If it is not related to Tyranids, then this is really not the place for it.... stay focused....

It is still related to warhammer 40k. If you do tyranids 24/7 it gets kinda boring. I didn't say just warhammer 40k art work. We could have both. It's not like we would be forcing anyone to do them.

yeah,

good idea, but i would really change the rythm.

i recon that contest/contest/vote/break would be best

this gives everyone enough time to buy create a stunning entry (not everyone has a gwstore or dealer close by)

No, you would not be forcing anyone to do them. Except Warpshadow really focuses on Tyranids. There are plenty of generalist sites out there, but we prefer in depth on the one race. Heck, it's even in our board announcement at teh top of the page... :)

Hmm, thats a good idea Harald, as I myself, fall into that category.

Though I think 2 months is a little lax. I think people wouldn't be very.. adamant on getting it done, and I know that I would procrastinate with a deadline like that.

I dunno though. Whatever the masses agree on.

Actually, on my schedule, there is only the one contest left, so maybe we'll do a test run, and in the new year, with the new codex, we'll think of an alternative.

I'm thinking this is how we'll be doing it.

I'm just going to run this contest first, and see how it works out, if not, we can change it up a little bit.

I was hoping for a "New Tyranids competion". Many Nid players are already building the new species in the Codex like the Tervigon, Alpha, Parasite etc. And they look pretty good! On The Tyranid Hive there is a competition offering a banner for best of EACH type. What I like is that now everybody's designs and kitbashings are in one thread. I often browse Warpshadow's gallery so I was hoping to see alll these creations here, safely stored for reference and posterity.

I think we need to have a competition in December. Most people get out of school and its before the finals of the semester. Which means lots of free time.

A problem with that though is that it is really close to the holidays. Where people may be receiving or buying gifts and be unable to pay for any extra components they may need. Another problem is that people often leave their houses to visit relatives, etc. and can't usually bring their conversion materials along with them :P
