PostSubject: Clarification Regarding Legio Army Throwdown   Wed Jan 09, 2013 4:03 pm

Hey folks,

It seems that more than one participant has been left confused about what the painted/unpainted requirements for this challenge are. Admittedly, when we came up with this we didn't think people would try to enter half painted armies. The intention for this was to motivate people to paint NEW armies- get those dusty models off the shelf and PAINT THEM.

So, when we were asked whether a partially painted army could enter, we made a quick call and said sure, but no more than 25% painted. Then questions got asked about whether that meant points or model count. Fully painted or partially painted? It didn't occur to me or Khairul that we needed to be extremely explicit and clear. That's a failing on our part that I mean to correct now.

To participate in this challenge, AT LEAST 1500 points of your army cannot have any paint on them whatsoever besides black, grey, or white primer as of the moment you entered the contest. If you've started this challenge with an army that does not meet these requirements, you're going to need to remove one (or more) of your painted/started units and replace it with one(s) that's unpainted until you meet the entry requirements.

If this is in any way unclear or you have any questions, please post them up here and we'll get back to you. Good luck with your armies, and thanks for participating!

FYI we're strongly leaning towards future army throwdowns being entirely new models- like the start of an Iron Painter. Assembled, based, and primed white, grey, or black. That way everyone starts at the same point, making it as fair as possible. We're making an exception for the first one Smile

ah ok thats fair... Very Happy btw

Since I am waiting for my weathering powder is there any rules stating that I cant continue working on my models after the throwdown?

a.e my 1st DeathGuard Squad will be ready next week but Its rust effect will be missing... can I add the rust effect on that unit after it is sent for a throwdown? Or do i need to wait till the whole throwdown is over before i can add anything new?

You can work on anything at any time. The final, army throwdown is May 10th so you can work on any model you wish (or all!) until then. However, you must attend at least 4 throwdowns to qualify.

Sounds like a good plan for a new army. This year we'll got few new codex, maybe starting on one of them.

Question!
Where do we find rules for the Pre-Heresy armies that we are building.
For example, DEATHSHROUD TERMINATORS, JUSTAERIN TERMINATORS or SCIMITAR PATTERN SPACE MARINE LEGION JETBIKE SQUADRON?
Also do we have wargear and profile for Jaghatai Khan?

Question 2.
Can one put forward his/her already painted mini for the throwdown?
For example I cannot produce mine new models in time for the 18th but can I throwdown the 25% painted part of the army?
