I just don't think I have enough "recycled" stuff :-\ I had a terrain kit I had been holding off on building for this competition, but "new on sprue" doesn't count as recycled .

Throw it in the thrash, take a picture of it, take it out of the trash...tadaa...recycled ;P (plus you have proof )

So we have roughly 2 weeks to build something then. I think i might have some time to WIP something up.
Guess i am in.


Take care.

Okay, here's a pic of stuff that may feature in my build.


List of material. Containers from powdered drink mixes, Walmart version of kool aid. Pill bottles that I cut the neck and lid off and used scrap plastic card and tubing to make chemical tanks, made them a while back for a necromunda bloodbowl board. The tower has the lid from one of the kool aid containers on top of a tin can from a can of chili. You can see it fits on top of a black cd. The cd is an old ps1 game that is scratched, and didn't work even before the ps1 gave out, I never pitched it or the system. The black sticks in front are left over parts from installing shutters on my house. I don't throw away much out of my plastic card as I purchased a punch set that let's me make nice circles and rivets I miscue a bunch of squares that I was going to use as a bloodbowl pitch, and have been using those as a source of material for circles and rivets.

Dug out more recycling stuff, who am I kidding, I never pitch anything. Also I decided to rebuild from scratch the tower, slightly different of course, since it and the chemical tanks had been previously built, luckily I had more empty pill bottles.

Also in picture are some rescued hard drive rails that I got from dsteingass, the black tubes are saved scrap from Fourth of July, they were the tubes that held the glow sticks that my kids wore after dark. The clear odd bit is the package from my wife's razorblade package. The white bit next to it is from the ultrasonic cleaner I bought years ago to strip figure. More empty pill bottles.

Not this one. This was the original with the wire mesh screen on the back, fully painted. The detail work is, frankly, amazing.

Hey there! Hadn't seen your blog before but I'll give it a read asap. Gits and graven linked your competition and I thought I'd have a look. At first I wasn't sure because I don't have any ideas but I promised myself I'd enter more competitions so here I am. I'll put my name down and see what I can come up with! Thanks for running this.

I had that land raider poster hanging in my master bathroom right after we got married, somehow it got damaged when we bought our first house , wonder how that happened? Also the Horus heresy poster is beautiful, was that in a white dwarf? If so they finally managed to put something in one I could use

Okay, the rules are really well thought out and easy to understand so I just have one little question! What are the judges feelings on plasticard and greenstuff?

Some notes:

1) I'm entirely serious on the size of the piece. Go get a CD/DVD as your base measuring device.

2) A beginning gamer probably doesn't have much in the way of plasticard or green stuff, so an entry that uses such things won't score full points. Think about what they have, and use that.

It is my intent to post a tutorial for newbies featuring the entries (with permission, of course). Thus, the strict focus and tight scoring.

Most likely be able to fit on a DVD/ CD. A CD is 4.75 cir. What about height? I have plans for something ~ x in. tall. Need to know if your holding us to a 4. 75 square.

I've gone through your list of competition points, and realised If I went outside and found a rock (preferally one once used as part of a building) and stuck it onto an old cd, all I'd need to do is give it a reasonable paint job to fulfill most if not all of the points listed.

Edit: Yes the abovr is a joke, This is a very interesting (and hard) contest, but given how much is at stake for the prize I'm not surprised.
Probably just the way my mind works that I'd come up with the simplest possible solution .

OMN - I think you be missing the intent. Someone who accidently spills their drink on you and someone who goes out of their way to pour it on you results in the same wetness. One requires an apology the other a beating.

I suspect the judges know better and you'll be disappointed. You could try it and see?

ps.. Really like your IF's.. especially your Termies!

I forgot to add that I wasn't being serious and had just remembered that I hadn't said it was a joke, If I was serious it would have to be more than just a rock anyway that would be taking the mick to say the least.

p.s Thanks, I hadn't gotten around to posting them, so I doubt many people have seen them.

@ Lazarus: That is an awesome use for sprue, good luck getting it finished in time, I'll be watching this for sure now

Count me in too. I'm well up for this.

Question: Does left over (ie: hardened) bits of green stuff or milliput count as recycling? You know, the little round (or flat) bits that are left over when you mix up too much of the stuff for a job? I have lots of that crap lying around.

More notes:

Since the rock is not, technically, recycled material like sprues or paint pots, you'd get an A for effort and a 0 for the recycled materials section.

Small bits of hardened leftover putty are okay, as they fall into the "I went outside and found some rocks" category. But, as mentioned, if the average new-to-the-game player can't replicate your creation, you will not score full points. These players typically have no plasticard and/or putty.

No real height restriction, per-se. But we touch back on the 'what does a brand new player have in their bitz box' conundrum. If they cannot replicate your mighty creation...

I guess I need to add a judging clarification:

Judging will be based upon the ability for a brand new player to recreate your fine entry. Presume that they have a VERY small bitz box, sprues equivalent to a couple of vehicles, some packing material, and stuff they can easily find in their home, or just outside. Weight will be given to people who come up with UNIQUE, creative uses for things most people throw away.
