The idea of reigniting a comp seems to be decent one, but can I get Mod/Admin opinions?
As I said I'd happily put the admin in if none of you guys have time.

(My initial temptation would be a nice, simple Haemonculus Challenge)

I think it's a great idea. I will float it to the moderators and see what they say.

What about Medals? Can we have medals?!?!?!

Like Bronze, Silver, and Gold medals

We could do Painting points/comps, Conversion points/comps and Total points painted/army

Here are some ideas for medals




Edit I'm bad at paint please seem paste the badness to understand the potential greatness!

Is Beckjann still doing Dark Eldar art and/or willing to do the "award images" anymore?

Quite a few of the Old Guard have been seen sporting them in their Signatures, I think that if we could get something od that standard again, it would be freaking awesome.

Also: the forum would look mildly professional.

Oh in signatures would work too.

I loved them from Miniwargaming and (before they changed the forums and i no longer liked them like 3years ago) It made it more fun and active.

And how should these competitions be managed?

Like: best Archon miniature?
Best pain engine?
Best squad?
In terms of modeling?
And in terms of best story:
Best back story
Best short story
Best long story
Etc

With ano election afterwards?

A separate forum topic that gets updated once per month.

For the full month you can add entries and at the end a poll is added and the top 1-2-3 pp l get the medals. Repeat. ALso a small number could be added to each medal to see how many medals of that type someone has gotten to encourage they keep going.

OR (and what i like better) (not everyone is a good painter but they still put the time and hard work into painting)

Just have a 1-5 scoring system and if they fit all 5 they get the medal, but you start with the lowest version and you have to do it again and again and again until you have the "Top medal" of that type.

Exmple, Painting medals, there are 7 medals: Wood, Rock, Marble, Bronze, Silver, Gold, Diamond.
1st entry Wood, 2nd Rock etc.....

Just some ideas, the easier it is on the Mods the more likely it will stay and we keep doing it.
We can also have it Peer to Peer on top of the mods, if 5 peers says you got it, then you got it with a fast check from the mods just to see if it is painted lol

Came back for the 8th.

Rules simplification and not showing my army for years add me out of my painting cave.

I just want to get lesser races all crunchy Twisted Evil
