GothiComp 2014 - Rules & Main Thread
« on: April 16, 2014, 07:05:04 PM »
Hi all,

Perhaps beyond expectations but it is that time of the year again:

GothiComp 2014

Following are the rules for GothiComp 2014, feedback appreciated:

Rules GothiComp 2014.

This is the tenth annual GothiComp, and will be run in a similar way to last years events.

The Goal
The general aim of this competition is simply to encourage players to get painting and show off what they can do. I encourage people to enter no matter how good or bad their painting and converting skills are.

The Deadline
This competition will open may 1, 2014, and the deadline for submissions is Wednesday 31st August 2014.

The Categories

Regarding all categories & entries: SpaceShip miniatures from all kind of companies are accepted.

General note: we encourage new ships not been shown in a previous edition of GothiComp. Of course vessels that have been completely repainted are allowed again.

The Single Ship/Squadron entry
Each separate entry should consist of a single miniature (being capital ships) to be used for Battlefleet Gothic (however, note that conversions, scratch builds and even vessels from outside manufacturers are welcome). The only exception to this is:

- If the vessel is a light cruiser or equivalent, one or two vessels may be submitted as a single entry in the same photograph. Space Marine Strike Cruisers can be treated as light cruisers.

Aside from this stipulation, the entry is largely down to the participant.

The community will vote on the entries as usual.


One-Hit Category
This category consists of all 1 hit-point structures & vessels in the game of Battlefleet Gothic. Entries may consist from 1 to 6 models.

The community will vote on the entries as usual.

In addition, there will be a 'conversion prize' chosen from single ship & one hit category. This will be a token prize for one entry based on the skill and style of any conversion work which has gone into the vessel, in an effort to encourage creativity in modelling as well as painting. This will be judged by a select panel. All entries are automatically submitted into both competitions simultaneously. The judges for the conversion prize are myself, Cybershadow and a third person.

The fleet category
Each separate entry should consist of a fleet worth at least 500 and a maximum of  2000 points following the standard BFG list or equivalent (the 2010 drafts are allowed even if GW has not uploaded them by then) .

The community will vote on the entries as usual.


The Prizes
Honour!

&

Mangazoc has created a pool of prizes for every category. The winners will be surprised by what it actually will be, but knowing the quality of his resin work it will be worth it.

The Pictures
You should submit a single picture per entry, no more. Each photograph should be no more than 3 megabytes large. The pixel width should not exceed 1024 x 768.

The Submission
To submit a picture of your vessel to this competition, you simply mail it at: comps@tacticalwargames.net

Make sure the header of the email contains the following: ship name / class name

Note that you do not have to be a member of the
http://specialist-arms.com
http://www.forum.specialist-arms.com/index.php?wwwRedirect
boards to enter this competition but in order to vote you will have to sign up.

We will compile a gallery of the entrants which will be available online. This gallery will remain as a permanent fixture to the site, and so you will be able to browse the pictures in the future. Please note, I am sure that there will be a rush in the last 24 hours before the end of this competition, therefore please don't wait until the last few hours if you can avoid it.

The Voting
Voting will take place here on these boards. Entries will be split into heats. The winner of each heat will go through to the next round until a winner is determined. Please note that entries will be placed into heats in the order in which they are submitted here. Note: having multiple entries from one participant will be spread.

The voting period lasts 7 days.

The voting results will be shown after the poll ends.

Possible tiebreakers depend upon number of entries.


Note that the ship and/or class name will be shown, anonymous upon request otherwise name will be shown.

Additional Rules
All decisions are final, any prizes are non-negotiable and the competition organizers reserve the right to remove competition entries or request that they are resubmitted or altered. We will hopefully never need this stuff, but just in case...

That is it. Feel free to email me with any questions that you may have. Now, what are you doing still reading this? Get painting!

Have fun!

So, this is probably going to sound silly but I see that the single ship section welcomes outside manufacturers, but I didn't see that on the one hit and fleet entries. I'm assuming they're allowed but confirmation would be nice.
I don't make the rules, I just think them up and write them down.

Hey Andrew,
I will change it, everything is allowed.



Oh, and we got prizes! Prizes!
Thanks to Mangozac.
Huzzay!

It's my pleasure to be offering up prizes for all of the categories! Gothicomp is the highlight of the BFG community calendar and it's always a pleasure to help support it. Get to work people I want to see some awesome entries, especially in the conversion categories!

I put it up on the SG Facebook page and there seems to be a lot of interest so hopefully we will get a big turn out I should probably paint something too but I'm the worst at making time for painting  :-\
I don't make the rules, I just think them up and write them down.
