Spring Minis Contest- XIN-SHENG!!

Post by Blackhawk01 » Sat Feb 28, 2009 8:57 pm

Greetings all! Our next miniatures contest is upon us! We are continuing our series of contests featuring canon schemes of the Great Houses of the Inner Sphere. Our fourth House is the Capellan Confederation.

You are to pick a canon mini that is common to House Liao. You are free to paint in in the canon Capellan scheme of your choice. Examples of the available schemes can be viewed at www.camospecs.com .

All minis must be on finished bases. All minis must be canon IWM minis, you may bash a canon variant if you wish. All entries must be new work painted for this contest not posted/published online or in print before.

When submitting your entries crop them as close to the mini itself as possible. Images should be at least 600x600 in order to be edited for posting in the contest. No Photoshop editing is permitted. I will edit for picture quality as needed.

The contest will run from March 1, 2009 through April 11, 2009. You may submit up to 2 entries. Submit your entries to: overlord67@yahoo.com

To sum up the contest rules:

1: Minis must be common to House Liao
2: Minis must be canon IWM production/canon variants are permitted
3: Mini must be painted in a canon Capellan Confederation scheme/ www.camospecs.com
4: Minis must be submitted on finished bases
5: Minis must be new work for this contest


Some final requirements for contest participation are:

1) All entrants must be registered members, in good standing, with BTU prior to entering the contest. They must register 24 hours before the closing date of the contest.

2) All voters must be registered members, in good standing, of BTU for at least three moths prior to the contest close date.



Good luck and get to work! :D

If you can provide the official canon text or any reference material that mentions the mech or mech's you intend to enter are in common use by the Capellan Confederation that will be proof enough. :) thanks zac

As I am not as familiar with IWM as many of you (being a limey and all), which of the unseens produced by Minifigs/Ralpartha are eligible?

It would be nice if you could complete the miniature with decals, but we have had past contest with miniatures entered without decals. Id say try and make the effort to get some from FPG or try asking in the sales forum if someone will be willing just to send you a couple if you ask nicely. :D

Thats for you to do your home work on and start flicking through them TRO's or the Field Manual Capellan Confederation or even the House Liao book. :) zac

IWM didn't make the BD or Unseen. Ral Partha did. :D

Really, I only asked b/c you guys said there would be some rule changes this time around.

Meanwhile, I gloss-coated my entry today. Now just need to decal and dull-coat. 8)

All the mechs in the old classic TRO's were made by Ral Partha-Minifigs now Ral Partha UK. :|

There will now be a few new additional rules when it comes to voteing, but more on that when we post up this contests voteing process.

Point taken.....we've been dealing with IWM for so long I forgot to mention Ral Partha too. RP used to make all BT minis before IWM took over.
