Hi,

GothiComp 2010 has started!

Following are the rules for GothiComp 2010, feedback appreciated:

Rules GothiComp 2010.

This is the sixth annual GothiComp, and will be run in a somewhat similar way to last years event. A slight alteration of the fleet category has been made.

The Goal
The general aim of this competition is simply to encourage players to get painting and show off what they can do. I encourage people to enter no matter how good or bad their painting and converting skills are.

The Deadline
This competition will open Saturday may 1, 2010, and the deadline for submissions is Saturday 31st July 2010, 4pm (UK time).

The Categories

[i]General note: we encourage new ships not been shown in a previous edition of GothiComp. Of course vessels that have been completely repainted are allowed again.

The Single Ship/Squadron entry
Each separate entry should consist of a single miniature to be used for Battlefleet Gothic (however, note that conversions, scratch builds and even vessels from outside manufacturers are welcome). The only exception to this is:

- If the vessel is a light cruiser or equivalent, one or two vessels may be submitted as a single entry in the same photograph. Space Marine Strike Cruisers can be treated as light cruisers.

- If the vessel is an escort or equivalent, then the submission must consist of between two and six vessels in a single picture.

Aside from this stipulation, the entry is largely down to the participant.

The community will vote on the entries as usual.

In addition, there will be a 'conversion prize'. This will be a token prize for one entry based on the skill and style of any conversion work which has gone into the vessel, in an effort to encourage creativity in modelling as well as painting. This will be judged by a select panel. All entries are automatically submitted into both competitions simultaneously. The judges for the conversion prize are myself, Warmaster Nice and Cybershadow.

The fleet category
Each separate entry should consist of a fleet worth between 500 and 1000 points following the standard BFG list or equivalent.


The Prizes

Single Ship Category:
* Two Zeus Class Light Cruisers by Mangozac
* Custom Flying Stands (1 large, 6 small)

Conversion Category:
* 2 of these: Starfire Superdreadnoughts

* Custom Flying Stands (1 large, 6 small)

Fleet Category:
4 of these: Starfire Destroyers
http://i693.photobucket.com/albums/vv29 ... led122.jpg
* Custom Flying Stands (1 large, 6 small)

The Pictures
You should submit a single picture per entry, no more. Each photograph should be no more than 3 megabytes large. They may be of any pixel size as long as the file size is not exceeded.

The Submission
To submit a picture of your vessel to this competition, you simply mail it at: comps@tacticalwargames.net

Make sure the header of the email contains the following: ship name / class name

Note that you do not have to be a member of the http://www.tacticalwargames.net boards to enter this competition but in order to vote you will have to sign up.

We will compile a gallery of the entrants which will be available online. This gallery will remain as a permanent fixture to the site, and so you will be able to browse the pictures in the future. Please note, I am sure that there will be a rush in the last 24 hours before the end of this competition, therefore please don't wait until the last few hours if you can avoid it.

The Voting
Voting will take place here on these boards. Entries will be split into heats of up to ten entries each (this depends on the number of entries). The winner of each heat will go through to the next round until a winner is determined. Please note that entries will be placed into heats in the order in which they are submitted here.

Note that this year only the ship and/or class name will be shown, not who submitted it.

Additional Rules
All decisions are final, any prizes are non-negotiable and the competition organizers reserve the right to remove competition entries or request that they are resubmitted or altered. We will hopefully never need this stuff, but just in case...

That is it. Feel free to email me with any questions that you may have. Now, what are you doing still reading this? Get painting!

Have fun!

Horizon

I look forward to entering my first BFG comp! I don't expect to win any prizes, but this should be a good experience for me. Good luck, all other applicants!

I should really try to motivate myself to enter at least the single ship category. My hobby outputs has dropped to almost nothing of late so it would be good to get the paint brushes out again.
