Light Infantry Contest 2014 [Rules]
« on: May 05, 2014, 09:09:16 PM »
For the most part, the Light Infantry are often the standard Troops. However, some are just more specialized at doing their job with less armour.

Dates:
- Entries can be submitted via a PM to Narric (Me) from May 5th until June 22nd.
- Voting will take place from June 23rd until June 29th.
- Winners shall be announced on June 30th.

Prizes:
1st Place = A Brand new Set of Second Sphere Dice

Along with Physical prizes, Award Seals will also be granted to the Top 3 Entrants.

And here is a picture of the Custom Second Sphere Dice up for grabs;


Rules:
- A unit of Light Infantry may not be or include a Named Character
- It is preferred that the unit be Game-legal. This includes any Transports that the unit would normally be assigned.
- Up to Three Picture may be submit. Images must be cropped/resized to 800 x 600 pixels for picture dimensions.
- Depending on numbers, Voting may be split in Master and Novice tiers.
- All Models must be fully Painted.

For the purposes of this Contest, Light Infantry are classed as:
- Any Warhammer 40K Troops Choice, with a base Armour Save no higher (better) than a 3+
- Any Warhammer 40K Fast Attack Choice, with the Unit Type "Infantry" only.
- Any Warhammer Fantasy Battles Core Choice, that is not wearing Heavy Armour nor may have an Armour Save higher (better) than a 4+
- Models from other games systems may be discussed in the thread, though it is insanely discouraged for potential entrants to post their own models as examples. ;)

Good luck to everyone who is planning on entering. :D

So Space Marines count as light infantry now? Would've thought 4+ would be the thing

Anyway...will be keen to enter this one. Since I'm back in 40k now and all :)
You make it sound like it could be wearing a top-hat and monocle, but for the sole reason it'd have been painted by Gareth that it would still look terrifying........I have to say I agree. XD

It means that we don't have Power Armoured Marines alongside Terminators.

My entry won't be GW at all, becuase I have plenty of non-GW models that are elligible :P

I will admit, having rolled these dice IRL, they're worth it...

I should have a Tactical Squad up and ready for then!
