The rules for participating are below, if you have questions please post them here.

Dates

Barring the first one, all of these are subject to change (and likely will).

  • Entry Submission Begins - 0000 UT, September 1, 2015
  • Entry Submission Ends - 2359 UT, December 20, 2015
  • Voting - 0000 UT, December 21, 2015 (or whenever I have a chance to post)
  • End of Voting - 2359 UT, December 28, 2015

Categories

For the purposes of these categories, Epic models include models from any 6mm sci-fi manufacturer or 6mm conversions. EpiComp respects the IP and copyright of all manufacturers and reserves the right to exclude any entry we feel is unsuitable (PM me if you have questions on this).

  • Best Single Model - Any single Epic vehicle, aircraft or stand of troops.
  • Best War Engine - Any single Epic war engine (titan, super-heavy tank/aircraft, etc.).
  • Best Formation - Nine or more Epic war engines, vehicles, aircraft or stands of troops (Epic war engines count as three each towards this count).
  • Best Battleforce - Three or more formations as described in the Best Formation category.
  • Dark Realm Miniatures - Any 6mm sci-fi vehicle, aircraft, stand of troops or war engine from Dark Realm Miniatures.
  • Microworld Games - Any 6mm sci-fi vehicle, aircraft, stand of troops or war engine from Microworld Games.
  • Onslaught Miniatures - Any 6mm sci-fi vehicle, aircraft, stand of troops or war engine from Onslaught Miniatures.
  • Open - One of the following:
    • A diorama
    • A terrain piece
    • 6mm fantasy

Entering

You do not have to be a member of these boards to enter (you do to vote however). Just e-mail your entry to epicompetitions [at] gmail [dot] com.

Please include the following:

  • Your name, and TacComm member name if applicable
  • A 1280x960px image of your entry in .jpg format
  • The title for the image
  • The category that you wish to enter the image in

Entries should be models that you've completed during the past year and not previously entered in an EpiComp competition. Entries already posted here or elsewhere on the internet can still be entered.

Voting

Voting will take place on these boards, so you'll have to be a member here in order to vote. I'll break down each category into heats and the winners of each heat will go onto the final for a second round of voting.

Prizes

The prizes for the categories will be announced as I get them. If you're thinking about donating something please PM me! EpiComp relies on the community's support and the great manufacturers who make our models for prizes!

One prize will be awarded to the winner of each category. A conversion prize will also be awarded to the best conversion across all the categories. This will be decided on by CyberShadow and two other forum members who haven't entered.

Any winner will be awarded a maximum of one prize. If an entrant wins two categories they'll be able to choose the prize from either category. The prize from the other category will be awarded to the second-place entry in that category.

  • Best Single Model -
  • Best War Engine -
  • Best Formation -
  • Best Battleforce -
  • Open -
  • Dark Realm Miniatures - £50 Dark Realm Miniatures gift certificate from Doug
  • Microworld Games - $40 Microworld Games gift certificate from Steve
  • Onslaught Miniatures - $50 Onslaught Miniatures gift certificate from Don
  • Best Conversion -

I'm currently checking with the usual manufactures to see if they're interested in sponsoring a category again.

What are the specifics on minis appearing in multiple categories again? (sure it's been state before, cant find it, max 2?)

Say I enter an army as a battleforce, can I then enter a titan from that battleforce entry as a war engine, an APC as a single mini, and both in with a formation submission?

so much for entering say, a formation of terminators. sure 9+ for a formation is warranted? Perhaps 8 may be a better size?

It's max 3 now, Apoc. It could appear in the battleforce, formation, and unit/WE.

It's been 9 for a long time now Jimmy. If you're a few shy either throw in some other models or pick the best painted for the "Best Single Unit" category.

There's just over two weeks left to get your entries in. I have less than 10 at the moment.

Also, prizes, I need some donations. CaptPiett contributed some Dark Realm miniatures but there's still six categories without a prize.
