The Fifth Stage of the Archon's Challenge.

ALLIES. Trusted comrades in arms or useful idiots to take the losses, battle brothers are at our disposal. Their technology is well known to us and we will make the most of them.

Let our brothers cast their runes and walk their paths. In the end, victory is still ours...

Stage 5 will be a single choice available in the Eldar Codex, old or new. Additionally, any of the Forge World models are acceptable so long as they take a single slot.

Entry is open until the 28th of June 2013.

All participants must follow the rules as listed. See link

Contest rules

Judging and comment will begin June 29th  Best entry will be determined by July 4th 2013.

I wasn't all that sold on the model when it came out but have found myself actually liking the sculpt. I'd like to try another one some day if I could come up with some conversion ideas for it. Really had fun with this one, though I had no intention of entering it!


Oh...looking at the final pics, it looks like I didn't use any weathering powder on the base Evil or Very Mad

Curse you June and all of its exams, getting in the way of my painting! Good thing I have some earlier painted craftworld allies with plenty of WIP pics to choose from!

The winner will be announced later tonight.

I'm having a really difficult time selecting the best overall.

And the winner is

Siticus the Ancient with his rangers.

It was a very tough call for me, all the entries were very good and I was quite impressed.

I have to admit I was really torn between all of them, but in the end it came down to a choice on thematic agreement, or in other words, what Siticus pulled together.

I will make for you one of the following selections:

1) 3 blown up vehicle markers made from bits I own and other materials. Please specify which vehicles you would like. Venom, Raider or Ravager. One of each or any combination of the 3, so longs as it is no more than 3.

2) Pain tokens. I will make 6 pain tokens for you.

3) 2 objective markers.

Some assembly make be required once you get them ( if they are too big, I will lose my shirt on the shipping, especially international shipping).

Please PM me with your choice, and your address. It make take me a few weeks to get everything done and in the mail.

Well done to everyone who entered, and congratulations to Siticus for the win. That is an excellent squad of Rangers, very nicely painted, but also great conversions. I really like your 'ghost' colour scheme.

And thanks to GAR for running the comp again, I am already looking forward to the next one, whenever that may be!

Cheers.

Wow, thank you! This was honestly quite the surprise, considering the entries - Saintspirit's Wraithseer is amazing! Thank you GAR, can't wait for the next round!

Congratulations indeed - I really like your colour scheme (reminds me of the Retribution of Scyrah from Warmachine).
