Greetings!
I thought that I would add a thread for suggestions of future SotF contests.

Forgive me replying to my own thread, but...

A suggestion that I would like to submit is for a way to tell what altered form Ymgarl Genestealers are using.

My first thought was to magnetize them and model Slashing Claws, Tentacled Limbs, and a Protective Carapace. But changing 20 limbs each assault phase did not seem like a time-effective method.

So this is my first suggestion for a future SotF contest.

-Bri

You should rather stick to a common feature on all the ymgarl stealers. The tentacles are IMHO the thing to keep. Since Rogue Trader they are pictured like that. So having random limbs and or carapace on the different stealers will show how mutable they are.

Cheers

Hello,
No one has ever seen me before but I've watched this site for a rather long time.

Ever since the new Codex came out the various Special Characters and new types of creatures have been intrigueing.
So in the spirit of how you guys have already done Parasite of Mortex other special characters would be a nice idea for a start. Or various other pieces of fiction from the Tyranid Fleets.

The main ones I'd put forward for possible contests are:

Doom of Mal'antai
Norn-Queen
Dominatrix

How would you guys feel about doing something like these?

I'd also still like to do the non-combatant theme as well.

I think we should go through any of the remaining units that currently do not have models.

-Doom of Malan'tai <- this might be one of the better choices since it's confirmed to actually be useful in a Tyranid army
-Harpy
-Tyrannofex

OR we could work on one of the custom units.

-Swarmlord
-Tyranid Prime

What a very intriguing idea. I'll second this, and start thinking... just in case.

Does a spore mine count? :D

I think a non-combatant theme would be great! I haven't seen very many of those.

I may get around to making one myself :)
