PostSubject: Legio Army Throwdown I   Wed Jan 02, 2013 11:58 am

Hey guys,

One of the things I’m most excited about for 2013 is a new event format we’re introducing this year at Legio. Called the “Legio Army Throwdown’, it’s a long term event that combines aspects of ‘Tale of Two Gamers’ articles and the Iron Painter into an event specifically designed to help and motivate YOU to get a new army project done.

Basically, it’s a series of mini hobby challenges that culminates in a vote for the best overall army. Participants bring completed units to each specified “throwdown”, and let the voting public of Hobby Night attendees vote which is best. Today starts our very first one, which will be for Warhammer 40,000. Participants start with a 2,000 legal list, no more than 25% completed. For each ‘throwdown’, they bring the specified completed unit to Hobby Night for judging. Here’s the schedule for our first Legio Army Throwdown:

* January 18th- Troops
* February 1st- Troops
* February 15th- Elites
* March 1st- HQ
* March 15th- Heavy Support
* March 29th- Fast Attack
* April 12th- Wild Card (any previously undisplayed choice from your army)
* April 26th- Wild Card

For all participants who complete their 40K armies AND attend at least four throwdowns, they are invited to the final judging Hobby Night on May 10th. There, everyone attending Hobby Night will enjoy free snack and beverages, along with the chance to vote for their favorite army. The winner will receive a Purity Seal for their glorious victory, while the remainder will get framed certificates proving they completed the Army Throwdown. ‘Honor Badges’ will be added to certificates for winning previous throwdowns, attending all of them, etc. Either way, it’s a great way to stay motivated towards getting the army done. We’ll also post standings of all the competitors on the Legio blog, showing their attendance/progress.

In additon, each Legio Army Throwdown challenge will feature an optional theme. This theme will be determined by the Legio membership, and will normally involve a campaign, tournament, or some other themed follow up event. Participation in the “theme” is OPTIONAL. Any 40K army is eligible to participate in the challenge. However, for those who are interested, the theme for our first Throwdown is the Horus Heresy. To participate in the theme, your 40K army must comply with the following restrictions:

* Your army must be an Imperial Heresy-era army. Space Marines should be most if not all of the entries. Imperial Army is permitted with approval of the theme organizers (Alvin, Jeff, or Khairul)

* Space Marine armies must entirely consist of Mk II, III, or IV armor. ForgeWorld models are the best way to do this, but conversions are allowed if they are VERY high quality. Final approval for conversions falls with the organizers. We strongly recommend the ForgeWorld models.

* Lists shall be made exclusively with the Horus Heresy series of books from ForgeWorld.

* No DIY Legions whatsoever will be allowed- everything must be as canon as possible.

If you’re mad enough to get excited with this and want to participate, contact the theme organizers for details or post up here! If you've got any questions about this or something doesn't make sense, post up here and we'll get you sorted!

Jeff

No problem- just have the list confirmed before the army throwdown in May and you're good to go. Not every unit has to be displayed at a throwdown (unless you only have four units!), so that's not a problem at all.

Awesome!

Hi, just to clarify, about the 25% painted part, it is count by model or point?

I'm building a 1750 chaos night lord army (which can easily bump up to 2k just by throw in one more daemon prince =P or another squad of fully kit up marine)... it has about 45 models for the moment but unfortunately I've painted like 15 models over the past months...

Good question. We'll say no more than 25% of your point total being already started/done

I'm in Penang but would love to participate in this (not there in body but in spirit) hahaha!

Can I submit my throwdown via pics? (Pretty, pretty please with sugar coated cherry on top.) Of course I may be able to sneak in some travel time to attend some of the Hobby Nights.

If that's not possible then you still have my unofficial participation. Wink

I realised though that my planned Pre-Heresy 1K Sons are not using MkII, MkIII or MKIVs. Sigh...

Grabbed a whole bunch of Microart Studios Crusader and Knight robed legs and custom resin termi torsos, shoulderpads and head casts in an Egyptian theme. They will be painted in the traditional color of crimson and white/gold trim though with the stylised flaring sun icon.

I will be building 3 Legion Contemptors as well once Alvin's FW order comes in.

Oh! Darn, i missed the optional part. Cool! I have my Dark Eldar which is about... 20% complete.


EDIT: Arrghh! Darn! No! I recalculated the points and I'm actually about 30+% done... I'll think of something else then... Maybe my Tau.

I'd love to have you in but a big part of this is getting the hobby community involved at Legio for the voting nights. However, participate with us from Penang, and we'll include pics of your models as well when we write up our throwdown recaps. This exception is for the Penang crowd only though- there's no real reason our local guys here can't turn up four times in four months to display in person Smile You're also invited to come to the final voting night on May 10th. While your army won't technically be in the running for the Purity Seal, I'd love to see it displayed for all to see. It's an achievement worth celebrating! We'll also have some snacks and drinks that night Smile

Dann, just take out one painted squad or any relevant point cost unit from your DE and replace it with a new unpainted one. Don't think it would be too difficult to get down to 25% since you're only at 30+%. Crisis averted and you're in Smile.

Would really love to see your humon DE army all painted up man!!! Haven't seen anyone in Malaysia have a fully painted DE so far Wink.

C'mon Dann, you can do it!!!

Yay....I am getting some 30K stuff from Alwin also would post up the picture, just to give the Legio guys a run for their money.
Thanks Jeff, you 'D man.
