This is a heads-up for BSC2018  - it's going to happen.

This is the registration thread - if you are interested please post in reply to this thread to register. If you don't like the theme once this is revealed you can always pull out. I'll be compiling a list below.


For my many sins I have been asked to coordinate the 2018 event, and as I am being paid a couple of million for this it's a bit like being asked to present the Oscars, I went  :o ;D :D and accepted.

We're running a teeny bit late, so I'll try to get my act together and kick this off. I'll plagiarise last year's rules, update stuff and then try to choose a theme (that is NOT going to be easy, but after Christmas lunch yesterday we have a number of wine bottles with just a little left in the bottom, and I am supposed to clear up, so there may be a way...). Once done I'll just have to get it past the censors and then we're off. UPDATE: IT'S 'ILL-ADVISED'

For those of you new to this, here's the url of the 2017 edition rules: http://leadadventureforum.com/index.php?topic=96225.0
The rules for this year will be similar, although the dates and (obviously!) the theme will be different.

By the 15th of January at the latest we should be off, posting weekly progress right up to model completion before painting, when participants will mail us a photo of the painted, completed model for voting.

Watch this subforum.

Oh gods, the heat is on already!
To answer your query  :D: sort of - the update is however just my silent realisation that I have great new powers as co-moderator of this board, which actually means that by mistake I almost deleted your post instead of quoting it - so many buttons!  ;D

Congratulations, Oh, Omnipotent Omnissiah of The Build Shit Board!
 :D

Good luck with this this, you may well need it.
Dependant on the theme, I shall rather tentatively declare myself 'in'.
Will that do, O Masterful One of Many Buttons?
 ;)

So, whats the theme then?
 ;D

Hmm, I like that title.
Good to have you on board, that will be formalised later on.
The theme is

Not sure I am going to have time this year, work :'(
But I thought I would put a placeholder here just to keep my hand in the pot
When do we find out the theme?
Good luck to everyone entering
Looking forward to watching the progress

Blast, that 'Remove' button is just where 'Quote' is! That's the third time in as many replies I almost did that.
Accidentally, of course...  >:D :D

Humph - I was planning to collect all the expressions of interest here and compile them. Slacking indeed. Tsk. I mean browsing the Necromunda rulebook (a Christmas pressie) ISN'T slacking, is it?

Hope you'll make it, gamer.
I fixed the title of this thread to make it the registration board, that'll keep Mason happy  :D ;)

The theme: soon, soon...
I can even drop a not very helpful micro-hint: it will not be one of the themes I proposed.

Well done for taking it on John  :)

The intolerable weight of expectation on the person running BSC pretty much broke Jimbibbly and severely traumatised Hammers, so best of luck with it!  lol  ;)
(I'm sure it'll be fine).

And yes, take care with all those new buttons. Remember, if anyone gives you any lip, just hit 'delete'  :D
