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, October 1, 2019
  • Entry Submission Ends - 2359 UT, December 29, 2019
  • Voting - 1200 UT, Januray 6, 2020 (or whenever I have a chance to post)
  • End of Voting - one week later

Categories

For the purposes of these categories, Epic models include models from any 6mm sci-fi manufacturer, 6mm conversions or 3D printed models.

  • 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 - Eight 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 (24 units, effectively).
  • Dark Realm Miniatures - Any model(s) from Dark Realm Miniatures.
  • Exodus Wars - Any model(s) from HLS Models.
  • Microworld Games - Any model(s) from Microworld Games.
  • Onslaught Miniatures - Any model(s) from Onslaught Miniatures.
  • Vanguard Miniatures - Any model(s) from Vanguard Miniatures.
  • Open - A diorama or terrain piece
  • Adeptus Titanicus - Any model(s) from the Adeptus Titanicus line
  • Aeronautica Imperialis - Any model(s) from the Aeronautica Imperialis line

Entries in the manufacturers' categories must be entirely made up of the manufacturer's miniatures, otherwise they will be put in the appropriate "Best *" category.

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 1600x1200px image of your entry in .jpg format
  • The title for the image

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. 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 -
  • Dark Realm Miniatures
  • Exodus Wars
  • Microworld Games
  • Onslaught Miniatures
  • Vanguard Miniatures
  • Open -

Thanks for organising this. I will definitely have 1 entry, maybe even 2-3. Reading your text, I'm assuming "any 6mm sci-fi manufacturer" includes cottage industry?

@captPiett - Sorry, only pictures I've been allowed to ridicule for at least three months are allowed.

All of my minis have been kept in my special safe space, free from your pesky triggering events/micro-aggressions, so I guess I'm out.

Beavering (painting) away quietly here. Using Epicomp cut-off date as motivation (and an excuse to hide in my hobby den). I have 2 entries ready to photograph, working on a 3rd.

Quick question, can I post a formation of 3 shadowswords as a formation and part of a battleforce (so some models overlap categories)?

Just joined the group and only just started a mainly 3d printed deathwatch army last week, 4 rhinos down lots to go. I hope I can get some finished for this year's entries in time, it will be a great motivator.
