Magister Competere
Yak Comp 2nd Place
Jan 6, 2013
Ho Chi Minh City, VietNam
Welcome to the 9th Yaktribe Competition - the 8th was won by @ClockworkOrange ( and a Plasma Ball ;) ) with the "Imperium is a Lie"

This time the competition is a little different, as you can see below - due to @ClockworkOrange getting a third win, we have decided to include a '3' here too.


We would like you to make 3 of something - the very same item through 3 different ages.

Example (for a Necromunda House Gang)

Model 1 would be a juve - armed with a pistol and bad acne.
Model 2 would be the very same gang member as before, but (recently) promoted into a ganger - showing a better load of equipment.
Model 3 would be the same as previous, but now as a gang champion (or perhaps even the leader by this time!) at end of his Gang fighting days and is on to retirement or even bigger things. He/she will be the baddest Gang member the house has ever seen. They will probably have loads of fancy kit (Think OIAM Golden MeltaGuns etc :) ) and possibly a lot of scars.

So, we're looking for 3 models, one is minimum xp, one is at promotion XP (or thereabouts) and the last one max xp - of the same gang / warband member. (For Mordheim - the promoted bit can easily be dealt with "That Lads Got Talent" )

That's not all, we're opening this up for Scenery / Terrain too - same criteria as before - 3 items, showing the same thing - one brand new, one used and the last (possibly) ruined.

Vehicles too if you like! - see above :)

Normal Competition Rules apply - with one exception, we're going to give you 6 weeks to do this one (instead of the normal 4)

Closing Date Saturday 19th September.

No Minimum or Maximum restrictions on size (for scenery/terrain)

Please reply below with your intention to enter - like usual :) Any questions? Again, below please :)

Good Luck and May the Yaks be with you.

Now then @djmothra asked me to announce the winners in his absence

3rd place @GrimDork - 13 votes


2nd place @KungFuPanda - 15 votes.


1st place @Flobojoe - 18 votes, I can see you will be trouble in the future when I attempt my 4th crown!


Congrats all I'm sure @djmothra will update the thred properly when he gets back but to quote Brucey (which will only mean something to UK yakkers) you were all my favourites!

@djmothra and @Malo will be in touch with the winner to discus the theme of the next comp. (No pressure but make it scenary!)

Well done again! Clockwork

At the end of the last competition, where @Blood Donor put forward the suggestion for doing 3 something, I said if that was the critera I'd prolly go with a Beastmaster and 3 Pets, but they don't gain XP or change over time, so I'll have to do something else... Such as, maybe, doing a Teeny Mushroom, a Mushroom Brute, and a Spore Mother.

The Spore Mother is something I have previously attempted, would having a 2nd go at it be okay for this? I have a week before I'm back at my minis so it is possible that I might come up with something else anyway, but I always wanted to try doing her again.
@trollmeat remember the criteria says that it is the same member of the gang / warband modelled at 3 different time periods - you could do something like 3 ages of a new spore mother - one as an infant, one where they are just heading out on their own to start a new colony and the final one where they are the near the end of their time making new infants - and so the cycle repeats :)

A good analogy is: you make Bob the Juve, then Bob the Ganger, then Bob the Gang Champion.

I'm aware that the original Spore mother didn't work out for the TG comp - so, so long as this is a brand new attempt, then go for it - be nice seeing something a little unusual!
That'd be their life-cycle, if one of them lives long enough they could potentially become a Spore Mother.

I have a week or so before I could even start, so can explore other options on paper, such as my version of a Hive Mother (or any of the other dozens of projects I have bouncing around in my skull) :)

I've got some shiny TGG Jailbirds that need painting up and would fit well with this category, but what I really want to do is some sort of scratch built vehicle(s) or Robot(s). Straight off the Factory floor, Battle Tested, and then Decommissioned. Not sure if 6 weeks is enough though. I've got a Buddy's 40th birthday to organise, and then decorate my local pub for halloween. [Sad Face]
Let's see, four Ork trukks to paint and a fifth halfway built, two Ork buggies to paint and another build just started, five wasteland raider cars to finish building, two Ork battlewagons partially built and a third being de-looted back into an IG vehicle... Oh, and an Arbites riot vehicle being kitbashed from a Taurox and a Valkyrie. So what's one more project? I'm in.

@magister competere is it allowed to do for example a building, then take pictures of it, and then broke it down little a do picture and finally break it down complete and take picture? or is it supposed to be so that all of the three entries are really three different objects?
I have some tentative bids/watches on ebay now for suitable entries... what happens will be up in the air until then
