PostSubject: "Show Us Your Border Town Burning" Competition   Sun 19 Jul 2009 - 3:31



Contest Entries:
We want to see your personal Border Town Burning experiences! This can be practically anything of your choice. It could be a campaign summary, a battle report from one of the scenarios, an alternative warband objective, a new special scenario or a custom converted & painted Chaos Marauders warband.

It doesn't matter whether your submission is related to the craft side of the hobby (collecting, converting, painting) or if it is written words in the form of new rules or narratives. Don't assume your stuff is not good enough! One beautifully converted Belandysh can be just as impressive as a huge Cathayan gaming board or a full warband of Battle Monks. What we are really looking for is what you made of the Border Town Burning supplement - how it has affected your Mordheim hobby. What have you adopted, what have you changed or expanded upon?

If you are unsure whether you have something worthy of a submission, don't hesitate to ask!

Conditions:
1. If you intend to submit photos of warbands or other special characters then please note that we will only accept photos of Citadel Miniatures by Games Workshop.
2. If you intend to submit rules, then provide any relevant explanation of how these were developed including any notes you can share concerning how they were tested. Please make sure that they are produced in the form of Mordheim rules. e.g. A scenario consists of set-up, experience, etc.
3. If you intend to submit fiction, please try to not stretch your artistic license too much. Although part of the Border Town Burning supplement is set in the Cathayan borderlands, which is a largely unexplored part of the Warhammer world, we have gone to great lengths to use all and only known published information. E.g. If you produce a piece of work based on Cathayan religion or something of a similar nature in an attempt to expand the Warhammer background, it is unlikely that we will approve of it. Try to make your background feel as if it is relevant to the Warhammer World.

How to participate:
Send your submissions to bordertownburning@yahoo.co.uk. No matter whether it is photos, texts, etc. Don't forget to give us your full name so that we can properly credit you for your work. If you use the contact form on the Border Town Burning website make sure that you include your email address.

Prizes:
There are three exciting prizes for the top three winning submissions. In addition to this, any outstanding work will receive consideration for the "Portents of Doom" Border Town Burning compagnion release. First place winner will get to pick their prize first, second place may choose between the two remaining prizes and third place will get whichever prize is left. In addition, there will be a few Chaos Dwarfs distributed at random among the best of remaining entrants.

Chaos Dwarf warband: After seeing the Border Town Burning supplement Dirk has sculpted these cool Chaos Dwarf miniatures for the Black Dwarf warband (yes, that is an example of what would be an excellent submission). This prize includes a total of six unpainted metal figures, plus one bonus model. You can see painted examples of these Chaos Dwarfs here.



Cathayan Bitz Pack: Chris has so many Citadel bitz left from his converted warbands that he figured it would be nice to donate them as 'Bitz Pack' prizes. The Cathayan pack includes to Citadel Ninjas from the late 80's, as well as some additional bitz including two Kislevite Archer bodies.



Mordheim Bitz Pack: The second Bitz Pack is the Mordheim pack, which contains goodies from the Mordheim sprue, rare metal equipment bitz and Mordheim scenery parts.



Extra Dwarfs: We will give away a few additonal Chaos Dwarf miniatures to random entrants. Of course, only serious submissions will be considered for this, so please do not submit a half-hearted scenario just to get a chance at winning one of these. Smile

The best rules submissions will be published on the website. i.e. they will be available as separate downloadable PDF files using the same layouts as Border Town Burning. Please note that we reserve the right to make editorial changes to submissions as we see fit. Full credit will still be given to you, of course! Also we do not claim ownership of your submitted rules. These are still your creations, while Mordheim and all affiliated names, brands and intellectual property belongs to Games Workshop.

Deadline:
All submissions are due October 19th, 2009. Don't worry about time zones. It will not be a problem if you are a few hours late.

If you have any questions about the competition, feel free to ask!

Good luck!

Hmm. I haven't had the pleasure of playing the campaign yet, but might be chance to make a scenario devoted to attacking hobgoblin riders. For the glory of the Khan!

A glorious idea! Anything that produces nice pictures of buildings, terrain & warbands or new scenarios stories is brilliant in my humble opinion bounce .
IŽll have to think about some things - maybe write up some of the BTB scenarios iŽve altered to multiplayers ones for our campaign or make my merchant caravan warband presentable.
And iŽll try to convince Wolfgang to enter the catacomb board he is building - he got the idea when we were talking about horrors of the underground. He was playing around with diablo on an old pc at the time so the look is inspired by the game graphics. My carauders and his carnival of chaos were defeated by a vampire warband when we tested the board and the scenario - a very apt outcome Wink .

I have one little question...
What about diorama? Wink


No matter what will your answer be, you have my sword, my bow and my axe (and all of my brushes)!
Very motivating idea!

@Horatius: I have seen Wolfgangs catacombs at GG. They're stunning. I did think of the Horrors scenario at first, but he said he was using a different scenario for it, he even posted it, so I thought I didn't have anything to do with it. Anyways, a bunch of photos of it and some BTB-related fluff would make that scenario a great entry. Especially because having another scenario that works with the horrors tiles would making them more motivating since they have multiple uses.

@Skavenblight: Of course! Anything that fits the theme is welcome! Warbands, single Minis, dioramas, campaign summaries, scenarios, new Hired Swords... anything that is content-wise related to the setting.

I look forward to your entries! bounce bounce bounce

Wolfgang had the idea for an underground setting in his head for a long time. When two of our gaming group tried a 1on1 BTB campaign and told him about our experience with horrors of the underground he finally decided to build it.
The boardŽs look is Diablo-inspired, but we transferred it to (or rather beneath Smile ) to the borderlands.
We have used (or rather playtested) the scenario Wolfgang posted in our ongoing BTB campaign last game and will be using it in the next game, the scenario will be a mix of Horrors of the underground (the wyrm will appear) and Wolfgangs dungeoncrawling ideas. When you play with four warbands you almost always need more objectives / things to do then in normal games.
And besides, the board is too cool not to use it Very Happy .

Ha ha, definately!

So again: Please write up the scenario and submit it with a bunch of photos of the board and your minis on it. If nothing else, it will be a great addition to the scenario section. bounce

Now that I said I will contribute a mounted marauder warband to the competition, is it just me or do I have yet again roughly a month for a new warband? Suspect

Ah well, I'm kind of used to it right now Very Happy

Hee Hee... I finally decided on the scenario I wanted to write:

A Defend the Village Scenario, inspired by 'Seven Samurai'. (Yes, I know Samurai are Nippon... I'll call it 'Seven Sentries' or something...)

I'll write up the whole thing soon, but here's the twist: Both warbands are ALLIED, and (possibly against their will) working to defend the village agianst Hobgoblin raiders. So the 'winner' is not the warband that thrashes the other, but the one who does the best job defending his own half of the village. Sound good?

That does sound great indeed. So will it be both warband's Heroes then, to get more of an outnumbered feeling? I look forward to it.

I love the idea for the Seven (u fill in the blank). Almost a Custards last stand, or Alamo feeling.. but hopefully the heroes will over come!
