DA WAAAGH CHARACTER CONTEST 2017

 

Da Rules is simple: Pick a character from a movie, any movie build, sculpt, convert, paint, and display your character.

 

You can recreate a scene or pose involving your character or simply have a stand alone piece.

 

Entries will be judged based on the following critera - Build, Paint, Likeness and Creativity. Hopefully this gives a little bit of leeway to some less experienced/proficient modelers who might be intimidated by the task, if you're not the best builder and painter you might still pull off a win if your entry can wow the judges. 

 

 

NO WIP pictures!

At contest end entrants will post 6 pictures  of their completed entry a WIP of the completed build before paint, front, left, right, rear and over head into the Trophy Rack labeled "Character Contest 2017"- and who your character is.

 

Up for grabs is a $25 shopping spree at Kromlech "Bits of War" online store.

 

The contest will run from May 1st to may 31st. Entries posted after June 1 will not be eligible for prize consideration. (This will be based on US EST)

Jackdoud

Karfang Toofstealer

Oh and I forgot to mention I'm in the process of nailing down some sort of gift prize package for the winner. Its basically a Cadillac. Wanna know what second place gets? A set of steak knives. Third place is you're fired.

That someone was probably me.

I'd be for jumping into it, or running it, or whatever.

Yeah, the kompetishuns on da Waaagh have always been a lot of fun. And IIRC Dim's movie ork was the last of them... or maybe it was Ladz of da Waaagh (which was only "sort of" a competition). Interestingly I can't find the Ladz of the Waaagh Komp thread and I could only find a couple of the entry threads, but I did find the compendium of rules that spawned the Komp... here. And, of course, promptly spent a half hour reading through it and chuckling over some of the stuff in there. Now that I'm amused I will do a bit more rooting around and see if I can turn up the original.

 

Meanwhile, you ladz get on with setting up the Komp. Movies again? Comic books? Pop culture icons? Whatcha thinkin?

 

 

***update***

Found the original FBH thread, but it appears the Komp thread has been lost in the warp. All searches for it fail and the contemporary links to it error out. *sigh* But the FBH thread is quite amusing. :yes

I think that they've made enough movies about everything that we can keep it in that realm.

 

And yeah, its quite the trip down the rabbit hole going back through some of those old threads. For your SS gift I'd hope to be able to do up Kptn Krum's stats on an actual data sheet but the task proved to be beyond my skill set.

 

And sadly a lot of pics of builds didn't make the transfer from the old server.  We'll see if this garners any more interest and then I'll start laying out the rules and what nots.

I might be interested in this.  I'm not doing much with my orks right now so this could be fun to do one guy.

I think Horror Ork followed Movie Ork, but I don't remember now. Many moons ago.

Yeah, there was a Horror Ork and (after a bit of spelunking in the archives) there was also a Mega-Ork, but it only got three finished entries. Activity on the Waaagh was starting to wane about then (including mine as I had other priorities to deal with). However upon digging up the thread, I now remember Gargdregga's really excellent Mad Max rig that he built for it. Ah, the good old days.

So possibly 8 entries, maybe 4 finished models, I'll take that.

 

I'm thinking like a month to build & paint. haven't decided to go w/ judges or a poll. We'll burn that bridge when we come to it.

 

Now here's the exciting bit, $25 Kromlech gift card to the winner. I was just kidding about the steak knives, second place is the first loser.

I have edited the original post to reflect the rules of the contest and criteria for entry. Also I have compiled and posted a list of possible competitors, if you wish to be included post here or contact me or if you are on it and do not wish to be please do the same.

You can put me on the list, although I really don't expect to have the capacity to finish and I haven't come up with a potential entry concept yet. Still I don't want to miss the boat should inspiration catch me between now and then.

This sounds interesting, I think I'll toss my squig into the ring. Question though, is it only one character or would an iconic team be ok and/or can we do more than one entry?
