Hello fellow members!

Today is the day to announce a new contest. This time I have something different in mind. It is a contest that both members that will already have a model for this creature can enter, as well as members who haven’t even begun to come up with ideas for such a beast.

Of course I’m talking about the Swarmlord! So I’ll get right into explaining it.

Purpose:

The purpose behind this competition is to model or paint models that could represents the fabled Swarmlord.

But there is a catch!

This model is actually going to be part of a diorama (the Swarmlord and it’s base have to be removable) showing the Swarmlord and another model (or models) in an epic duel. The other model can be whatever you’d like, Space Marines, Tau, Necrons, Orks, even Fantasy Battle Lizardmen if you want.

The diorama can be as big as you want, but I expect people with pre-built Swarmlord models to have big dynamic bases. ;)

Dates:

Contest Opens: Wednesday, September 1st, 2010
Contest Closes: Thursday, September 30th, 2010
Voting Opens: Friday, October 1st, 2010
Voting Closes: Friday, October 8th, 2010

How to Enter:

There will be a single gallery for this contest opened in the Survival of the Fittest album. To enter, Private Message me here with links to your entry and I will create a sub-album titled with “Entries Name – Your Username” in the appropriate folder, where I will upload the photos manually. This will allow members to post multiple angles and shots of your creation.

This is located here:
http://album.warpshadow.com/v/Paintcontest/epicduel/

Contest Guidelines:

1) Models must be either scratch-built or kit-bashes of official Forge World/Games-Workshop models.
2) Submissions must be complete.
3) Submissions do not have to painted (but they can be).
4) When photographing your submissions please make sure they’re on a light background with a good light source.
5) Your model must be detachable from its diorama (this has to be proven with a photo).

Prizes:

This month, the winner of the contest will win a brand new box of GARGOYLES!

Rules:

1) Only one submission may be entered per contest. Any submissions that are entered may not be retracted in favour of another submission.
2) Submissions must be completed to the full guidelines of the contest to be considered for voting.
3) Each member gets one vote per poll, and the vote may not be changed once cast.
4) You may vote for your own entry if you wish (voting is anonymous).
5) When voting we ask you to consider the appeal of the painting or modeling of the piece and the overall composition.
6) Polling topics are reserved for questions and comments regarding the polls, discussion of models entered in the competition should be reserved for their respective topics (do not be afraid to make a W.I.P. thread).
7) Polls will be run for the stated amount of time. No additional votes will be considered after that date has passed.

Hmm...I have a model I've been semi-proxying as the Swarmy himself, so all I would have to do is finish him and find an appropriate enemy. A single Grot, perhaps? Scarab? Tau Drone? Who is worthy?

So, do I start Skaven this month or do I buy a Hive Tyrant and enter?

The choices you force me to make.

I'm in.

I've never made a diorama before, this should be fun.

sorry to say that i won´t compete in this one here.
i don´t have enough time to do the whole thing.
and honestly, building and painting a swarmlord is a big task, even for that a month seems pretty short, but adding a dioramabase and an opponent, all in that short time seems impossible to achieve.

i wish good luck to all contestants.

Well nobody said anything about having to paint it!

Either way, we still have an extra month this year, so it can be extended if need be.

C'mon Harald, you know you want to....

Sounds interesting and I have been wanting to do some touch ups to my swarmy.

I'd vote for extending it. By the time we order the parts that puts us a week or so out provided everything arrives in a timely manner. Then we have to build Swarmy and a diorama base. Since the swarmlord is the biggest, baddest of them all I'd say give an extra month for the contest.

That sounds like so much fun... ideas are popping into my head already. But school just started and I'm not sure if I'll have time. We'll see how it goes.

I would love too, but again, school and money. I also can't buy my own tyrant right now and I don't have enough materials for my 3rd try at a tervigon and a swarmlord. Plus got FW stuff to paint up too.

Swarmlord vs. Skarbrand? vs. Fateweaver? Those would both be awesome.

I dare someone to get a Space Marine, equip a servo harness, and have him with 4 power swords.
