QC3 Autumn Chops Contest - Final Entrée Poll Closes 11/11
 
Welcome to the Quarterly Custom Competition Center! This is the revamped home for everyone's favorite custom unit competitions (not including any run before 2016).


Rules:

1. Entries must be sent to me via PM.

2. Keep your entry anonymous while the contest is running.

3. Only 1 entry per member.

4. You may not vote for your own entry as the winner (even if it is the best), and you must vote in the poll if you enter.

5. You must use the miniatures named, probably.


Other Clarifications:

All contestants will be included in the poll if there are 15 or fewer entries, if there are 16-19 I will decide on a Top Ten, and if there are 20 or more I will decide on a Top Fifteen.

You may reuse your old customs

You may enter if you do not make a card for your unit. If you submit the entry early enough I will make a card for you. Also, it's pretty easy to make your own, just use @Xorlof 's awesome card creator and one of the many free photoshop programs (I use GIMP, now).

If you want to change your entry you can, just PM me before I post the poll.

Character bios are allowed, and they might tip the scales in your favor so I recommend them.

Anonymity is not that all that serious. You may remember my blunder a few contests back when all of the card URLs had the creators' names in them (actually I did that for a couple before someone mentioned it). Once the poll comes up, I would prefer to have lively conversation than to have intact anonymity. Don't say which is yours, obviously, but also don't worry if you think your attempt to hide which one is yours went terribly. :mrgreen:

Further note on anonymity, you could even play online games with them to playtest, just don't share them publicly. Don't make anonymity get in the way of anything at all, it's kind of a joke. I'm actually very serious about how much of a joke it is.

All feedback is welcome.

Oh nice, I remember participating in a bunch of similar contests several years ago, I'll have to pop in for the next one!

This doesn't seem to have been updated in a while, @Dr.Goomonkey .

Ask and you shall receive.

Actually, I was contemplating moving the announcements for new contests here, instead of starting a new thread each time... I may just do that for the next one, although there is a large part of my brain that rejects the notion of changing the process at this point. I do like how the ARV runs things, so I might borrow that from them.

I figured I should announce that the next contest will be announced in this thread, and the title of this thread will be changed to make it work a little better for that announcement, and that announcement and title change will be coming before you know it (Sunday, most likely).

Hmm. Looks like this thread is pretty sticky.

An excellent sticky choice. I always forget how to find this one, but it has some great units in it. :)

:shock:

Wow, this almost feels bigger than getting the announcements on the front page. I feel like a big dog for being such a scrawny goomonkey.

What better way to christen our new HQ than with a competition making everyone's favorite type of unit: common heroes? I'll tell you what better, having a brand new, full scale, double tier contest! That's right, you will be making a Unique Hero for the masked miniature, and a Common Hero for the other miniature. (See, I used pictures from two different angles, so it looks like two. Oh, you already knew that was the same miniature? Hmm... Okay.)

Spoiler Alert!


Entries must be in by April 14, as the poll will go up sometime on the 15th. I thought 3 weeks instead of two would be good for making two units. :thumbsup:

If you know of another miniature that is obviously the same species as these, let me know. I may let you use it! If that happens I will share the miniature in this thread. Don't share the miniature in this thread for the sake of anonymity.

Here are transparent background PNGs of the figures and the hit zones if anyone can use them.

Cool idea for a contest! This will be tougher, designing two cards instead of one.

What size are the figures?
