Re: 2020 Legacy Coven Signup

Seems like there's enough hybrids.

I am planning on doing a Brood Brother. I have a RT metal imperial guard casualty that takes plastic arms. I'm going to try to make him trying to hold a cult flag aloft while feebly defending himself with a pistol.

I might do a beastman.

This is supposed to be a skirmish warband of about 10 infantry models, not an army of a few dozen with a couple vehicles, right?

Re: 2020 Legacy Coven Signup

^It's all reliant on how many people sign up. You are number eight, so . . .

I expect it will be characterful, but more skirmish than army. The nucleus of a good cult, rather than a full-on first edition x-thousand point army. There are some lovely hybrids earlier in the thread. Lord Chaotl Oml has generously agreed to provide a magus. I figure I can provide whatever is needful late in the game. (Seeing as mailing time from my workshop to my basement is pretty instantaneous.) I'm figuring I can gin up a patriarch of some kind if needed, or maybe provide another hybrid, or a cultist. I'll try to make it fun and useful. Purestrains are theoretically a part of the game as well, but I figure most of us have at least a few plastic purestrains. (They're not the cheapest miniatures on the bay anymore, but still cheaper than a lot, I suspect.) Anyway, I'll put you down for a brood brother. I think I have precisely that IG casualty. Lovely figure. :)

Re: 2020 Legacy Coven Signup

Can I paint more than one if I want?

Just the other day a friend was cleaning out and gave me a ziploc full of plastic genestealers if you need one. I was thinking of trying to convert one to hold a demon weapon, that's all the "patriarch" in the original book was.

Re: 2020 Legacy Coven Signup

I've no objection to folks submitting multiple models, but I would still wish to make it one person=one chance rather than someone simply submitting a lot of entries to stack the deck. (Particularly since entries count the same no matter how much their aftermarket value.) A few years back we had a mixed lot of inquisitors vs. gangers and if I recall correctly several folks submitted on both sides, but still only got one ticket, if you will.

And yes, the patriarch is really just the first and oldest purestrain. But he's long been somewhat bigger and more impressive. No worries, either way. And if there's holes in the cult I can't fill with my own submission (which won't be a standard plastic genestealer, though I surely have plenty) . . . whoever wins can always fill 'em. This will be fine. :)

Call me crazy, but this is mostly about the spirit of neat conversions and characterful models. It's not so much about rules, or points, or any of that. And the spirit of folks contributing what their budget and skills allow. Converters usually seem to submit conversions. Collectors sometimes like to submit oddities. And everybody seems to want to paint and tell stories. It's all about the happy. :)

Ok. I missed something, I didn't realize it was a straight raffle. I thought the army went to whoever painted the best model. I like the raffle better.

No worries at all. Glad to have straightened it out. A straight raffle makes it much easier, I think. :) There is a painting contest. Or at least there was in the past. But that was a separate thing.

Re: 2020 Legacy Coven Signup

Anyone here from the UK? I thought if so, then maybe we could combine postage of the models?

Re: 2020 Legacy Coven Signup

I suppose if folks wanted to we could just agree to individually mail our entries to the winner. No real idea why we started by mailing models to the organizer. I've just kind of kept up the model I inherited. Hopefully the mail will be running better again by the end of the year, but . . . I'm willing to be flexible. I do try to document things when they come across my table, but there are surely other folks as could do that.

Re: 2020 Legacy Coven Signup

I think the point is, no one can win until you get their entry. It's assurance that it actually gets done and everyone pays to play.
