YakComp 42 "Mind is quicker than the eye"

Some people are masters of the blade, some are able to shoot a tossed coin mid-flight. Some people can see a rat run past from a hundred steps away, some sleep with a pillow under their gun. But what is all that good for, when somebody can force you to shove a live grenade into your pants just from staring at you, or to set your sorry little hut alight by snapping their fingers?

Build and paint a psyker, magician, or anybody who can manipulate the world around by thoughts alone.

Yaks have 6 weeks to create, make and paint their entry, which must use at least 3 colours and be suitably based.

Bonus yak points* will be awarded for including a backstory for your named psyker.
Even more Bonus yak points** for creating a new psykic power or adapting existing ones for your character.

The deadline for this comp will be midnight BCT on Sunday the 12th of June 2022
Any yak wishing to enter merely has to state their interest in joining in and provide a link to their work in progress thread!

PRIZE:
The Yak with the most votes will become the new YakComp Champion, Win $15 store credit from the ever generous @Mad Robot! They will also win a rather striking 1st place red banner, AND will have an automatic theme suggestion for the next YakComp!

also: the first four yaks to finish their entries, get to put forward a theme suggestion for the next comp (or may pass the chance to the next quickest yak)

Good Luck Tribesmen!

*bonus yak points are worth 0
votes.
** extra bonus yak points are worth double bonus yak points!

Hey yaks, welcome to the pre-comp comp, where we invite the quickest and the best yak of the previous comp to either submit a theme idea for us to vote on, or pass their choice to the next quickest yak!

Once all theme suggestions are in, I’ll create a poll, where any and all yaks can vote for what they’d like to see next.

Please step forward:
@MancInventor Champion
@Stoof
@Raven Morpheus
@trollmeat
@Hawkins44
@Tiny

Themes can be anything you like (even if it’s been done before)

Here I come forth with the suggestion I taketh from the brainstorming place.

"Mind is quicker than the eye" - Some people are masters of the blade, some are able to shoot a tossed coin mid-flight. Some people can see a rat run past from a hundred steps away, some sleep with a pillow under their gun. But what is all that good for, when somebody can force you to shove a live grenade into your pants just from staring at you, or to set your sorry little hut alight by snapping their fingers?

Probably not restrict to just whf or aos, broaden the theme to ~”Necromundify something(s) from Fantasy”

…which would work well for me ‘cos all my Goliath juves are fantasy chaos warriors.

I’d be happy with any theme, but just remember that Ash Wastes is coming 😄

Edit: though my recent experimentation with Wyrdstone and Farmyard animals makes me want to suggest using non-wargaming miniatures for Necro/Mordheimunda 🤣

It seems like every time I look through my kids toy boxes I see something that could be turned in something Necromundish. I might have to go to the wierder end of the spectrum... is the underhive is ready for a Peppa Pig based Ogryn? A Peppa Piggryn? No, I better not...

I currently have a sorta plan for some terrain that would match @Stoof 's idea but I don't think it really wouldn't be competitive again you Yaks but at least it'd get it done.

I've had part of the psyker idea rattling away in my bit box for YEARS so there's that.... and also dig the the trans-dimensional madness idea, because as others have said a lot of Fantasy stuff looks great in a future setting.

These are some good ideas, excited to see what gets picked!

@rustedchrome yeah, the main idea is to take part and have a good time! Having something useful for your gaming at the end is a nice plus. Mostly I never finish, so I always have something useful for the Finish Your Stuff Challenge (which is all about getting stuff off your pile of shame).
