Tactical Command • View topic - GOTHICOMP 2011 - RULES
GothiComp 2011 has started!
Following are the rules for GothiComp 2011, feedback appreciated:
Rules GothiComp 2011.
This is the seventh annual GothiComp, and will be run in a similar way to last years event. A very slight alteration of the fleet category has been made.
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.
This competition will open Sunday may 1, 2011, and the deadline for submissions is Sunday 31st July 2011, 4pm (CET time).
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 at least 500 and a maximum of 2000 points following the standard BFG list or equivalent (the 2010 drafts are allowed even if GW has not uploaded them by then) .
Single Ship Category:
* complete Lance Dauntless, a couple of regular IN prows, around 6 lance battery bases, IN LB modules, some chaos escort bridges, a couple of prow rams, and a bunch of antenna.
* 5 resin voss prows (Imperial Cruiser) (+ some bits from me)
* Tyranid Hive Ship (conversion), 2 Tyranid Razorfiend cruisers (in blisters) + spare Kraken tentacles
You should submit a single picture per entry, no more. Each photograph should be no more than 3 megabytes large. The pixel width should not exceed 800 x 600.
To submit a picture of your vessel to this competition, you simply mail it at: comps@Tactica lwargames.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 www.tacticalwargames.net - The Tactical Wargames Network 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.
Voting will take place here on these boards. Entries will be split into heats. 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: having multiple entries from one participant will be spread.
Note that only the ship and/or class name will be shown, not who submitted it.
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!

Keep the submissions going!
Ooh... I'll never win anything for painting, but maybe Converting.
"TO THE PAINT TABLE!"
single ship... Inquisition black ship? Pair of heavy transports? hmm...
Fleet... Rogue Trader Fleet? Hmm... could I include my ground defences? ... I'll muse anyway.
