Welcome to Librarium Online!
You may have been following the progress of my recent BFG competition. It was concluded last week, with Will J being announced as the winner. If you want to take a look at the competition post it is sticky at the top of the General Hobby Discussion forum. A big â€śThank you!â€? goes out to everyone that helped plan the competition, and to those of you who entered.
I intend to have the next competition running over the Christmas break, so now is the time to start planning it. I have started this thread so that we can brainstorm and discuss the theme for the next competition. I believe it is important that you guys have competitions that you want â€“ that way more people want to enter. Other aspects, such as prizes and judging have already been taken care of, but if you have any brilliant ideas you want to share you can post those here as well.
I believe the theme for this competition should be fairly accessible, much like the last one. By this I mean that you should not need to know the BFG rules in order to enter. This obviously rules out anything like designing new ship rules or scenarios, but if enough people want a less accessible theme then weâ€™ll go down that road â€“ you just need to tell me. The rationale behind the accessible theme is to increase interest in BFG by introducing new players to the game.
My current ideas for the theme include conversion, painting, conversion & painting and scenery making. It may be a good idea to specify these a little more, for example the â€śChaos Daemon-ship conversion contest.â€? My one concern about the painting contest is that there is currently a 40K one being run by King Ulrik Flamebeard, so bear that in mind when you brainstorm. Our very own BFG playing Camel (fear him, he is mighty) has suggested a â€ścreate a starshipâ€? contest, so think about that a well.
So what I need from you guys are ideas. Think about my suggestions and comment on them. Also add your own suggestions if you have any â€“ this is your competition so your input is vital. Once we have a list of ideas, we can vote on which one to go for. I intend to get the competition running by mid-to-late November, so get your ideas down ASAP.
On a similar note, I am going to start up a little email notification system for the competition. Basically you will receive an e-mail every time something important regarding the BFG competitions happens (updated post, competition winner announced â€“ anything to do with the comp). In order to sign up for this, either PM me or send and email to firstname.lastname@example.org telling me who you are and that you want in on the notification system.
Right, that is all I wanted to say. Get your thinking caps on guys, and let me know what you come up with.
Sounds good. I'm all up for painting and converting, but a scenery-comp would be fun as well. I'm all in for any of them.
I cant really do much in the ways of ship converting, I have no money right now.
But a painting comp would rock, as I don't see many BFG ship photos around.

So, the painting competition seems quite popular at the moment. Should be fun, and as it will be judged by a poll even I can enter (and cry as you all laugh at my awful painting).
Any more opinions and ideas? The more I get the better.
I muchly like the painting comp idea.
It'll give me some incentive to finish up some of my new ships.
I'd love to do a diorama competition or something similar, however, with the difficulty of getting mini's (I know we have to ship them from the UK, i'm sure other countries do too), i'd be in for a painting comp as well.
Sounds fairly cut and dry to me.
There shall come a time,
When one who has the heart of a Kilrathi,
but is not Kilrathi born,
Shall rain cleansing fire down upon us,
and Kn'Thrak, a time of great darkness
Shall embrace us.
You can buy them from teh US online store.
I ahve the luck that a online retailer here in Sweden sells all SG-games at reasonable prices.
Canadas got the full range. We've even got Cobras, which are being dropped from allot of the stores for some reason.
Yay! Ordering my first explorer today!
I to would be interested in a painting competition.
