I'm just curious how all of you out there feel about extenuating circumstances in a tournement.
Here's the situation...
We have a tournament on sunday the 16th, Since it was announced I've painted a completely new army to near completion. I work third shift with lots of downtime so I primarily paint at work. Before work I packed all the bits I still needed to paint for my land raider and my rhino's ( i.e. the top and back of the land raider, the land raider tracks. All my hatches and pintle Mounts, as well as the hull mounted bolters) into my back pack and put it in the car. On the way to work we stopped at blockbuster video. While we were in the video store someone went into the car and stole my backpack.
Would you make an exception and let me use whats left of my landraider as is or would you exclude it for being unfinished. Currently the Hull is together with the sponsons and doors on.
honestly, it is a difficult one, it is terribly eeasy to use this as an excuse (not suggesting you have, but other unscroupilous people), the rules are pretty simple, you need to verify with tourney organisers beforehand, also take proof because I have heard of occasions where tourney organisers said yes but local referee said no on the day
Everything you have been told is a lie!
I know this isn't exactly what you're asking, but if I were your opponent I'd give you plenty of leeway for this kind of thing. As long as you told me what was supposed to be modeled on it I wouldn't even mention it.

At tournaments I run, this sort of thing is fine. As long as it's fairly clear what the model is, it's fine. I don't really require either painting or complete assembly.
We do usually have a judged painting score which figures into your overall score, so having unfinished models may end up biting you in the ass, but I wouldn't keep you from playing.
Ultimately, there aren't really any hard-and-fast rules governing this situation. Talk to the tournament organizer, explain the situation, and ask if you can use your half-done Raider. If he says yes, great. If he says no, well, that's that.
Not much more to be said, really.
Once again, the conservative, sandwich-heavy portfolio pays off for the hungry investor!
A question like that is going to depend entirely on who's organising the tournament. If you showed up at a GT with that story you'd just hear "Wow, that sucks man, here's some glue and paint, you've got two hours until game time to not get disqualified." If it's being run by local guys, call them up and ask, but they'll probably let you slide. Particularly since you're not a known repeat offender in that area =).
To me as long as its “obvious” that the described situation has happened then I would bounce it off the organizers with some backing from the other players.
It’s probably happened to some one else there before in some form or other and as a group action it will be hard for the organizers to fend you off and deny your entry.
Something along the lines of the other players saying “Well I don’t mind playing him with that equipment and I would expect the same treatment if that were me in his shoes.”
As stated before you will have to make it “obvious” that is the case here (perhaps a Police record of the theft) and I am sure that the other players will stand by you mate.
In a controversy the instant we feel anger we have already ceased striving for the truth, and have begun striving for ourselves.
