Following are the rules for GothiComp 2009.

This is the fifth annual GothiComp, and will be run in a somewhat similar way to last years event. The main change is the way entries are submitted.

The Goal
The general aim of this competition is simply to encourage players to get painting and show off what they can do. I encourage people to enter no matter how good or bad their painting and converting skills are.

The Deadline
This competition will open may 1, 2009, and the deadline for submissions is Friday 31st July 2009, 4pm (UK time).

The Categories
The Single Ship/Squadron entry
Each separate entry should consist of a single miniature to be used for Battlefleet Gothic (however, note that conversions, scratch builds and even vessels from outside manufacturers are welcome). The only exception to this is:

- If the vessel is a light cruiser or equivalent, one or two vessels may be submitted as a single entry in the same photograph. Space Marine Strike Cruisers can be treated as light cruisers.

- If the vessel is an escort or equivalent, then the submission must consist of between two and four vessels in a single picture.

Aside from this stipulation, the entry is largely down to the participant.

The community will vote on the entries as usual.

In addition, there will be a 'conversion prize'. This will be a token prize for one entry based on the skill and style of any conversion work which has gone into the vessel, in an effort to encourage creativity in modelling as well as painting. This will be judged by a select panel. All entries are automatically submitted into both competitions simultaneously. The judges for the conversion prize are myself, Warmaster Nice and Cybershadow.

The fleet category
This year we introduce a new category: the fleet. For this participants submit a single picture of a fleet worth between 1000 and 1500 points in game terms. The fleet must follow the standard fleet restrictions. Fleet lists published in Warp Rift are also allowed. If you have a fleet based on a non-published list it is adviced to contact me about it.

The Prizes

The Single Ship/Squadron
Provided by Dark Real Miniatures ( http://www.darkrealmminiatures.com/ ) [from their Hostile Stars game]

Kraytonian Scientific Exploration Fleet
- 2x Kraytonian TwinBlade Cruisers
- 3x Kraytonian Dark Knife Frigates


Or:

Pax Arcadian System Defence Fleet
- 6x Pax Arcadian Ashigaru Destroyers


conversion prize
Provided by Horizon

Assorted bits. (Adeptus Mechanicus icons, Chaos battleship bridges, Imperial Navy sprue bits, Craftworld Eldar bits).

The fleet category
Provided by Vanvlak

16 GPB + shipping costs at Forgeworld.

The Pictures
You should submit a single picture per entry, no more. Each photograph should be no more than 3 megabytes large. They may be of any pixel size as long as the file size is not exceeded.

The Submission
To submit a picture of your vessel to this competition, you simply mail it at: comps@tacticalwargames.net

Make sure the header of the email contains the following: ship name / class name

Note that you do not have to be a member of the www.tacticalwargames.net boards to enter this competition but in order to vote you will have to sign up.

We will compile a gallery of the entrants which will be available online. This gallery will remain as a permanent fixture to the site, and so you will be able to browse the pictures in the future. Please note, I am sure that there will be a rush in the last 24 hours before the end of this competition, therefore please don't wait until the last few hours if you can avoid it.

The Voting
Voting will take place here on these boards. Entries will be split into heats of up to ten entries each (this depends on the number of entries). The winner of each heat will go through to the next round until a winner is determined. Please note that entries will be placed into heats in the order in which they are submitted here.

Note that this year only the ship and/or class name will be shown, not who submitted it.

Additional Rules
All decisions are final, any prizes are non-negotiable and the competition organizers reserve the right to remove competition entries or request that they are resubmitted or altered. We will hopefully never need this stuff, but just in case...

That is it. Feel free to email me with any questions that you may have. Now, what are you doing still reading this? Get painting!

Have fun!

I don't actually play the game but I may paint up my first ever BFG ship and enter this. I have a nice idea for what could make an interesting display piece. Few questions:

Is it ok print off a photo of a starscape for the background?

If I didn't want to have a base in the photo am I allowed to use photoshop to subtly edit it out and replace it with the starscape, or would I need to attach some kind of rod & blutack type arrangement to the off-side of the ship, out of sight of the camera? (I could do it this way, though it'd risk damaging the paintwork with the blutack)

Lastly, is there a limit on how many characters the name of the ship / text you want placed there can be? I'd want mine to be either 22 or 18 characters long (depending if I omit the word 'the') and this would be important for appreciating what the photo represented (which I'd prefer to keep it a secret till when / if it's done). Would that be ok?

Photoshopping is allowed. So you may edit the base out of it.

Regarding name: just add the long name.  :)

Cool you are willing to paricipate.

My own entry is proceeding sloooooow. Think it'll be a last minute entry.

I am in for sure.

I need to finally get my first entry into a GothiComp (and get some paint onto all my BFG models).

I'm in.  Probably won't be the most amazing entry as I already did one of my Imperial ships and decided on a relatively quick paint scheme so too late to change it now!
