Update: The Space Hulk Challenge

The Realms of Equinox Present’s

The Space Hulk Challenge

To promote my blog and build excitement towards the impending release of Space Hulk, I will be running a small contest. Beginning on 02/16/2008, select and paint a model or small diorama depicting something taking place within a space hulk. This could be a traditional diorama of a terminator and genestealer fighting in a hallway, or something new and radical like a harlequin entering a hulk from the webway. The important thing is that the entry must give the impression of taking place within a space hulk.

The Rules
1. Models MUST be Games Workshop. They may be heavily converted, but it must be clear that they are primarily composed of GW models/bitz. FW models may be used.
2. Entries must clearly depict something happening within a space hulk. Equinox has final discretion on whether an entry meets the criteria. Entries that don’t meet the theme of the contest may be resubmitted prior to the final submission date.
3. You must be a follower of “The Realms of Equinox” prior to submitting an entry.
4. Your entry must be painted between Feb 16, 2009 – March 28st, 2009. Proof of work will be required as part of the submission process (see below).
5. Submissions will be accepted between March 1st 2009 - , March 28st 2009. This gives you plenty of time to build/paint your entry. Minimum of 2 Photos will be required of your entry: Work in Progress showing the date, and a completed work. The completed picture file can contain multiple pictures, but only one picture file will be posted per entry. The deadline for submissions will be March 28th, 2009 11:59 PM CST. To submit your photos, please email them to:
6. All completed submissions may not appear on any other site or blog before April 13th, 2009. Works in progress may be posted on other sites and blogs before April 13th, 2009. (This is to encourage people to talk about their creations and build excitement around the contest) Any entries found to be violating this rule will be banned from the contest.
7. Voting will be done by the followers of “The Realms of Equinox”. Photos will be placed on the blog and each follower will get to vote for their favorite entry. Voting will take place between March 31st, 2009 - April 10th 2009.
8. The winner will be announced on April 13th 2009. The Winner of the contest will receive a $25.00 gift certificate for the Warstore. (Note: The Warstore is not sponsoring this event, I am purchasing the gift certificate from them as they are internet based and very reliable.)
9. If you have any questions, please post them in the comments section of this blog entry.

There was one small change to the rules based on feedback I have received. Participants may now post WiP (Work in Progress) shots on their websites or blogs. I hope this encourages more people to participate and get excited about the contest.
