STOOFSTRIKE EDIT WOOP WOOP!

Poll up! Poll will close on Sunday the 6th at the stroke of... uhm... about two minutes past 8pm UK time. 1 vote per voter. Choices are:

Sid.”
Make something from toys that aren't meant as gaming models. Can be terrain, minis, whatever you like as long as its at least 50% toys.

"Guess maybe you better swear me in"
A small group of deputised underhive lawmen, or a posse of vigilantes out for revenge for the predations of the local house gangs.

"Large and In Charge"
Build a model of a leader, either fresh and scrappy or suitably experienced, gnarly and lethal!

"Tech priests, and you"
Build and paint a person operating, or trying to (no matter how successfully) an arcane, or unusual piece of technology.

"Deviant Scum"
Create a model of one of the misguided, crazed or heretical madmen that dwell in the Underhive. (Brood brother, scavvy, mutant, cultist, beastman, genestealer, renegade space marine, Dark Gods Deamons).

STOOFSTRIKE EDIT OUT!

The Captains toil for House Amazon keeps him very distant from his tribe duties, but the show must go on!

Would the champion @Tiny and the esteemed yaks @Spenetrator @SirFrog @Hawkins44 and @Pierric all put forward a theme idea in the next week or so please! (Or pass on their choice if so desired)

And Lo! The topic was choosethed!

Expanded description:

Make something usable in a game or a diorama or something. A miniature (or more than one), a terrain piece (or more than one)... anything tabletop gaming / model making hobby related... but it must use at least 50% (by volume) toys aimed at kids or teenagers (no adult toys) that aren't meant for tabletop gaming or model making.

Ideas:
Gaslands cars
A refinery terrain piece made from an X-box and a nerf gun.
An underhive Krusty Krab shop.
Mutant farm animals
An Arsebear and friends.

Competition starts... ... ... ...NOW!

Standard rules are here. They apply as usual except where they don't.

Yaks have 6 weeks to create, make and paint your entry, which must use at least 3 colours and be suitably based.
Comp ends on the 19th December 8th January 2022* at **THE ASTRA TELEPATHICA OFFERS ITS APOLOGIES FOR WARP STORM INTERFERENCE** O'clock, British Captain's Time. What with the clicking and the voting and what have you, we could well have a Christmas day winner!

Prizes may exist? Who knows! Get buildin' and don't forget those Plogs!

(*yaks be bad with deadlines!)

I would propose the following suggestion :

Deviant Scum

(Brood brother, scavvy, mutant, cultist, beastman, genestealer, renegade space marine, Dark Gods Deamons).
 
For what it's worth,

"WHERE IS IT!?"
A model or two in a small scene , perhaps a debt collectors, maybe an enforcer breaking heads in a drinking hole, maybe a hapless escher who has lost her keys to her cutter, could be a cyber mastiff and it's orlok owner in a rare moment of happiness in the underhive, basically go off on one with the headline...frakk it, how about a rogue doc who's lost his watch in a patient or a corpse grinder tormenting a dismembered victim

Hold on! @drdrybrush you weren't called on to make a suggestion! :ROFLMAO: wander on over to the brainstorming thread.

I hope someone copies it though. I already started thinking of ideas for it, as well as the other ideas.
