Well my nine year old loves playing Warhammer quest and Heroquest so I guess it does happen.

Congratulations mate.

  • All to all, by my mustard!
Gentlemen (and Vanvlak),
   Unfortunately, I am going to have to withdraw from the competition - between real life and a painting commission with a deadline, I can't take the time I wanted to build my Yao Guai trap.

   Dammitall.

Hahaha, good luck. My four year old can use a hot glue gun okay-ish (better than my seven year old) and helps by handing me stuff, but that's about the extent of it so far ;)

Congratulations mate.

The hardest part is going to be getting a shot of him stomping through Megacity One! ;)

Questions on the rules: If I am placing the item I am making in a diorama-like scene, does the entire piece need to be new? Can I use partially completed projects that I have worked in years past as a base? I ask because I have some road pieces that I was working on years ago and never finished.

The base should follow the same rules for the design as regards commercial parts.
The rules state:
Quote
YOU CAN START YOUR BUILD THREAD IN THIS SUB-FORUM DIRECTLY, BUT PLEASE DO NOT POST ANY PROGRESS BEFORE THE START DATE.
The spirit (which the rules http://leadadventureforum.com/index.php?topic=106236.0 advise should be followed) is for a new build, however continuing an old project - at least as long as the bulk of the work is new - should be ok as in this case the truck is new, and is the focus of the project - if the truck were an element on a busy base and the focus were the base it would be less ideal for the BSC. To stick to the above-quoted line from the rules, the old project (or part of, in this case) should not have been shown online before - or at least not shown in a recognizable state; and definitely not shown painted and complete.
If you're in doubt PM me please.
I appreciate the rules could have been more specific, so that's my fault, and will recommend correcting this for next year.
