Spring Bashtacular 2010! Now with a 1st place prize.

Post by Blackhawk01 »

We have resolved that the time has come! Behold the 2010 Spring Bashtacular! This mini contest is a no holds barred, pedal to the metal free for all bashapalooza!

In this contest we are opening the arena to any and all BattleTech appropriate minis....Mechs, vees, Aeros, naval, WarsShips....ANYTHING you like! 8) We are looking for you to make SOME customization in this contest. You can modifiy any appropriate mini, you are not limited to canon IWM minis. You are free to paint them as you see fit.

A new twist to this contest is this: When making your custom mini, if possible you are permitted to include a "pre-bash" pic of your base mini to show us the amount of work done to your subject mini. This is NOT a requirement for entry.

This contest will open from March 15-May 15, 2010.

All entries must be submitted to overlord67@yahoo.com

Happy bashing!

This contest is also being posted at www.battletechcoalition.com

Same as always Jeff, each member may enter up to TWO individual entry miniatures for this contest, and the entry must be new and the photo never shown on any Battletech site before.

A painted and modified miniature, toy or model is the bare minimum that this contest requires, you have ample time until the end of the contest so lets see some quality work and effert carried out on your enteries as there is no immediate deadline to get them rushed in by... :D zac

Working on one. Bash and mods done, but working out the paint details.

Come on guys i want to see your enteries flooding in over the next week or so other wise the next miniature contest you will see on BTU will be a long time in coming. We gave you two months to enter anything BT related, i really expected a far better turn out than this... :( zac
