Welcome to the League of Extraordinary Riveters - Contest #7

"Fire at will"



Automatically Appended Next Post:
Competition Theme:

Gun Emplacement's is the theme for this next Terrain competition, Think big guns built into the terrain ready to rain fire down on any who stand in your way.

The main two things I want to concentrate on in this contest are Detail and Imagination.
For this reason I want everyone to take the idea of a Gun Emplacement and turn it on it's head
(and no that doesn’t mean building one upside down), Think outside the box, do something that hasn't been done before, really be creative with what you build and how you build it, be original.

For instances, what about a Xenos Gun emplacement, something built by an alien race,
be it Eldar, Tau, Necrons, etc. What about an Ork Gun built from scrap (just think of all the Rivets)
or even a Tyraind Gun Emplacement, something that's completely Biological.

Even an imperial weapon platform can be redesigned and reimagined, into something new,
but the choice of what you build and who you build it for are entirely up to you.

The Rules:

So as not to tread on anyone’s creativity here, the rules are quite simple.

Your gun emplacement should be a model fixed into position, meaning it was either built at that location, or is too heavy or complex to move anywhere else. For example a basilisk Cannon built into a fortified bunker would be fine. But a basilisk Cannon mounted on a parked tank is technically a Vehicle, and not a gun emplacement.

Try to make your entry as much a Terrain piece as it is model, as this is a Terrain competition your entry should be a balance of both.
For instance a gun placed behind a few sandbags is more model than Terrain, however a gun built into a reinforced bunker, that's been dug into a cliff face is a much more interesting concept.

And that's basically it for the rules, (I said they were simple) if anyone does have any questions on rules, or anything else for that matter, just leave a comment here and I'll get back to you.

Prizes:

The winner will receive Membership to the League of Extraordinary Riveters, plus a prize created by myself. Now as I'm judging this competition I obviously cant enter my own creation, but that doesn’t stop me from building one. So I've decided to build my own Gun Emplacement, and give it as a prize to the winner.

Deadline:

The last Contest (run successfully by Meade) lasted for 3 month's, which worked very well for all who entered, so I’m continuing with this and running the competition from now until the end of October, possibly drifting into November.
This should give everyone plenty of time to build and submit their entry’s.


Now I dont' know about anyone else but I love to see peoples work in progress (WIP),
so please feel free to post up you WIP pics, and share your building progress with everyone else.

Last but not least, if anyone's reading this and your thinking that you'd love to enter this competition
but you don't think you have the skills to compete, don't worry, and give it a go anyway.

Anyone can enter this Contest regardless of skill or ability, just have fun with it,
Call me old fashioned but I think that's the most important thing.

So good luck to all who enter, and I look forward to seeing what you create .

YESSS!!! i am in!...

i like how you defined the size and mobility (lack of) to the gunemplacement... it draws a line but it still leaves so many oportunities.... this will be a very cool comp!

atm i am still undecided... weather to give a xenos race a go or to build something steampunky...again....hmmm...

I can't participate, due to having to get six starship bridges ready for Artemis. But I can judge, if necessary.

I've got so many ideas for this it's ridiculous. Some are a bit outside the box though so I'll need conformation if I choose one of those.

I'll probably wait and start work after Briancj's comp has passed.

Yeah that's fine, If your not sure just let us know. But really the the stranger, and more outside the box the better .

Well you said you wanted work in progress, so here goes. It is imperial, just haven't decided if its guard, marine, or mechanicus yet. If I build a second one they might fall to chaos and become slaaneshi . For the contest part it will be mounted into a separate terrain piece similar to the fortress of redemption base, but the final resting spot will be on top of an imperial building.



The cannon has 180 degree arc and 360 degree rotation. Look out star destroyers. For scale idea the ball is 3" diameter.

Stole the idea from the scene in Star Wars on hoth. It can be used in any scifi game as a BFG, objective, or small moon in the battle fleet gothic game.

Inside your mind, corrupting the pathways

I have an idea fot this - does it have to be big guns, or can it be smaller anti-infantry guns in a fixed emplacement?

So, allowing the smaller guns and all, i want to know...

Does a small bunker, in a hollowed out garbage pile, fitted with a twin linked heavy bolter placement, to be used on gangers and zombies, qualify for this competition?


If so, i'm IN!

Eh...
Inmygravenimage: That's sweet dude. I bet her ass is bad...
Camkierhi - What a load of rubbish... Amazing!
Rogue Wolves - Its rediculous how much character you pack into those guys

Absolutely, sounds like a great idea, and I've never seen one like that before, so it's also original.
Plus the idea give's you plenty of opportunity to go nuts with detail, especially on the garbage heap.

If your still in, welcome aboard. I look forward to seeing what you come up with .

Aye, still in, cutting up a garbage bag as we speak... now to figure out how to get them worked in and around the rest without having to be primed like the rest...
