This is the fifth -=]_=- competition on DakkaDakka and it is open to everyone. The theme of this competition is vehicles. You can enter any sort of vehicle so long as it is scenery/terrain and not a functioning vehicle from your army. For example you could enter a wrecked Land Raider, crashed Doomscythe or decommissioned Manticore, but you can't enter a vehicle that is crewed up and ready for action. In addition you could enter a civilian vehicle - with all these Cities of Death isn't it odd we don't see any wrecked civilian vehicles around? I guess they like to walk everywhere in 40k! How about a burnt out bus? A freight ship that has run aground? An Ork cargo trukk? A Tau Train? You will definitely get bonus points for making a train.

Fantasy entrants are fine too, as are vehicles for other games like Infinity.

Wrecked vehicles work well as scenery but that doesn't mean they have to be wrecks. You could have a landed bommer being refueled for example, or space marine flier converted into the private ride of planetary governor. You can use third party vehicles like the excellent Antenociti's Workshop, Ramshackle Games, Puppetswar etc, or you can scratch build.

More than anything I would like to see original entries. Everyone has seen a Rhino before but has anyone ever seen how an Eldar commutes to work? (I bet they all ride bicycles). Or how do children get to school in the 41st Millenium? Heavily armoured school buses? Here's an excellent article on civilian vehicles in 40k for inspiration: http://www.dakkadakka.com/wiki/en/Civilian_vehicles_in_40k



For a prize I will be offering up these three models. Cynics might say that this is because I no longer need them but that doesn't mean I'm not attached to the little guys. The Pitslave was the very first one I made and began my love of chainsaw hands and all three are extensively converted and unique. There may well be other prizes offered as well. It is possible that I could make a custom miniature for the winner.

The deadline is Sunday the 10th of March. Post finished entries in this thread along with a couple of WIP pics

I'll be in this one for sure!

Armored school bus... if I'm feeling frisky. But I have to be working on more useable terrain so this will likely be some sort of wreck... could even be Tau... or some ruined industrial equipment for a board I'm planning to make.

Anyhow... step up you guys or I'm going to win this one again!!! And more shrubbery for everyone!

You can make it as big or as small as you like, it doesn't even have to have a base if you prefer. A functional vehicle is fine but make sure it is scenery rather than just a part of your army. I won't disqualify anything but I want to encourage original vehicle designs or ideas, personally I would love to see some civilian or work vehicles, or some interesting wrecks.

I'm soooooooo in on this one... And I mean In-it-to-win-it... I would love to get my greedy little hands on that female survivor of the necropocalypse.

I'll be entering a range rover, a snowmobile, and assorted junk. Nothing that will be even remotely able to drive, so certainly not a parked vehicle.

Nice contest choice Bruticus!!

I don't know if the other competitions have allowed multiple entries, it doesn't bother me though after all the whole point is to encourage people to make cool scenery. A parked vehicle is OK if it is interesting. The competition theme is pretty broad so really you should be able to make whatever you like as long as it involves a vehicle, but it will be judged on originality hence the warnings about parked rhinos!

Not that you would have to make a civilian vehicle or even a 40k vehicle, but it's still a good resource.

Back in 2000/2001, there was a southern California player who made an entire High School-themed 40K Army (Go Ogres!) complete with Schoolbus models.

IT WAS EPIC.

Btw I redirected my Leauge competition banner to this thread... feel free to use it guys and get the word out once more

I've been wanting to do an 'industrial wasteland' war-torn forgeworld table for awhile... to go with my dark mechanicus guys.... so this competition might factor in nicely with that. But what vehicle to make? the list of vehicles that bruticus linked was pretty helpful... but I'm still looking around for the right vehicle. I'm thinking it may in fact have to be some kind of train or tanker vehicle, to load up chemical waste/refined products. Wrecked, of course, since the whole place would be a warzone.

Bonus points for trains, double bonus points if it actually works.

Now THAT'S funny. And functional!

The Model Railroader in me cringes as the abuse of those poor trains.

Not been tempted to combine your hobbies? Seems like a natural combination to me, I find it hard to look at a beautifully made model railway without imagining titans stamping all around it. I spent a while the other day trying to see if it would be financially feasible to build a 1/300 model railway for an epic40k board. No, is the answer.

His "Work Train" looks more Orky than Imperial, but is so awesome i can let it slide.


Yeah it does a bit. Ork trains would be welcome too by the way. I couldn't find any ork train pictures, although this land train/carriage gun comes pretty close: http://www.games-workshop.com/MEDIA_CustomProductCatalog/m2120016_P5Mb1.jpg

I did find an Ork bus though, this is how Ork children get to school I imagine: http://puppetswar.com/img/p/65-185-thickbox.jpg

Of course I have been tempted! then I built an Ordinatus.

Epic/Battletech, being in that 1/285 - 1/300 space would be served by Z Scale. And you'd have to haunt eBay to really make that work. But you wouldn't need a lot.

However, at that scale, building your own 'track' and 'cars' is a lot easier, too. Lay down some plastruct 'rails', and build box shapes. Plastruct tubing solves your boiler and tank cra problems, and then it is down to gribblies and Epic bitz.
