Why don't you knock it off with those negative waves? Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here? Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change .

I'm slightly off target then....  :unsure: I'm just about done converting a figure made of  approx. 90% GW bits to represent a new Empire hero GW never made nor mentioned.

I'm not fussed about the competition part, though. So I'm going ro finish off my guy as an almost-but-not-quite part of the contest and can be excluded from judging/prizes.  :happy:

Great idea!
Nice conversion and that hound on the right looks like an Irish WolfHound. Really like his/her colours

That is a dang good conversion!  Don't forget to include it when we get the contest up and running.

If Warlord doesn't come along soon and set it in motion, I may. :icon_cool:

I already have picked the three prizes ill give away. They will all come from the Steveb collection

1- Character

2- mounted character

3- Unit ( 10  or more)

All unique and not found in the codex but fit with in the old world empire.

what do you all think

Adding those prizes to the schedule below ...

For March 31:  A hero on foot  .... prize is a character on foot from Zak & the SteveB collection

May 31: A cavalry unit (5 or more figures) ... prize is a mounted character from Zak & the SteveB collection

July 31: A warrior priest on foot ... (prize from GP to be determined)

Sept 30:  An infantry detachment (10 figures)  ... (prize from GP to be determined)

Nov 30: A wizard on foot ... (prize from GP to be determined)

Jan 31:  An infantry unit (20 or more figures) ... prize is a unit of 10 or more from Zak & the SteveB collection

(The idea is that the items listed above for the contests are to be conversions using GW bits that make up the figures.)

Zak ... how does that look?

perfect ( remember its your own conversion and cannot be an already made GW figure) painted is optional but can break a tie in which case painted will give you a win.

Thanks for pulling this together, guys!

I think it would help with participation if you start a new post for that first contest that includes the 'rules'. My understanding is that the hero on foot should be something that fits into the old world but is not (or is it not necessarily?) captured by 8th edition rules. right?

Yes, a new thread will be started.  If I don't see something from Warlord by the end of March 1st (that is a Sunday, and I am moving that weekend) , then I'll get something posted asap at that point.

Currently we're still kind of developing this series of contests through the posting on this thread here.  :icon_cool:

I think you made a very good PowerPoint there!
