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!
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 firstname.lastname@example.org. 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 make sure that you include your email address.
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 at Tom's Boring Mordheim Forum.
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 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. :)
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.
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 them via the contact form or post them at Tom's Boring Mordheim Forum.
