@Jackal: Welcome to the contest! Squigs pit you say? I really want to see that!
@Vik: Whats wrong with classic? Sure, compared to something scifi, it'll be a bit hard to build convincingly... you know, sice you don't have as much room for individual ideas, you have to replicate something that already exists.... but if you can pull that one off well, it'll look awesome!

LOOK!! a shameless self-promotion! (gasp!)

Join us Meade! We had cookies, and we will now have arenas

question guys... would you put zombies in a fenced off area, or would you rather throw tyhem in an enclosed concrete pit. I'm thinking fences are strong enough to held the dead... but are they?

fences will hold them in, as long as it's a not a swarm, they could have chains around their neck as well.

Only thing is you need something alive to fight them as they are not really interested in dead things.

Welcome, Maede! Don't you think a fight between those two guys would be little.... unfair? I mean, that guy in full body armor doesn't stand a chance against that knife wielding psycho lol!

And MauS.... fences are enough imo. But maede's got a point there, zombies won't fight each other.... but how about a pack of dogs or even a bear?

also, nice to hear you're giving it a shot, childe!

An arena... Maybe I should try my first terrain piece...? Maybe it should be a display case style diorama for my Aztec guy? Will it be a valid entry if there will be only a fraction but not the whole arena?

It is a chaos fighting pit... the fights can never be fair! Yes you read me like a book, the psycho with the knife will win He's just psycho enough to dodge the concrete on a pole.

Congrads on the win MrMerlin. It was a worthy piece, and I especially liked the spilled crate of cookies.

I'll be following along and supporting the contestants of the new challenge but I'm unable to enter this contest.

Hello storag! Sure, you don't need to build a complete arena.... it just has to be recognizable as such. And don't worry about it being your first terrain piece.... the cookie factory I won with was only my third terrain piece, and that is only if you count the cardboard house and some scenic base I made before.... lol

Lol Meade, I'm very much looking forward to seeing wips on your arena!

And thanks Skalk! Sorry to hear you won't be joining...

I may make one with fence/divider sections that can double as an Aegis defense line, I do need functional terrain after all I hope functionality is not penalized

If you pull it off good, I bet nobody will notice it that the fences are removable.
btw, the trukk and the outhouse on my entry are also removable... the trukk is, well, a trukk, and the toilet is an objective marker!

for the fence discussion...that´s as classic as you can go with Z´s... so it would be a first choice for me... the fighting pit tho would look stunning nevertheless... and chucking dogs and suchlikes at the lurchers is a good idea... if you are of the nasty sort then some slaves would do well too...

I might just have to enter this one, but I have alot going on with school, but I do need a reason to get back into terrain building. I moved to Hong Kong, and had to leave all of mine in the states And because I had to leave my terrain, I also had to leave my equipment, so I will be starting from complete scratch. (other than my models, and a carpenters knife… )

Cheers to all the competitors!
PS
I think that there should be a fight to the death in the winners pit, between the losers to see who gets second place
