As discussed elsewhere on LAF, A conveyance.

Other possibilities-
Armour,  Wear & tear,  Crossing an obstacle and Veteran of the War.

A conveyance would be my vote.

Another vote for a "conveyance" but NOT a working conveyance!  (need to build a crashed Star Destroyer)

I'm interested but it will depend on what the final topic turns out to be and whether I can fit into at least one of my excessive collections of miniatures.

Hoping to make 3rd time lucky the time I actually finish my BSC!

Also, yes. Conveyance would be an awesome theme.

2 by 2 feet game board (or 3 by 3 feet game board)

...is a good one. Applicable for all scales and categories and the potential for quite tasty entires.

Here is the updated list (sorry, work was a bit intense these weeks), including (I hope) all the suggestions from last edition, as well as those made for the coming one.
Boom
Comic
Lethal
Firepower
Mud
Vertigo
Food
Speed
Peace
Animal
Mineral
Earth
Poisonous
Spotted
Production
Noise
Exit
Small
Defence
War machine
Engine
Stealth
Decay
Obsolete
Unconventional
The breach
They passed this way
Surprise
Nature's Bounty
A Workplace
Interior design
A place of worship
Armour
Wear & tear
Crossing an obstacle
Veteran of the War
Modify message
Maintenance
Conveyance
Using a (Pringles tube/computer fan/box of matches/etc.)
2 by 2 feet game board (or 3 by 3 feet game board)
3D photography backdrop

I thought of making a poll, but it is already clear that there are one or two favourites.
I tend to agree with Hammers that a small board would be a nice option, being 100 % flexible in scope and providing scope for some incredible builds. Conveyance, slightly less because although I already have a plan (and need!) for one, it's similar to the 1st edition theme of transport - although that said, this was around a decade ago.
My personal favourite would not, I believe, be popular, as I'd go for comic or lethal; unconventional comes in close.

Even though there's something to be said for all options, I do feel that a lot of the suggestions lend themselves more to a display/diorama rather than an actual gaming piece...

Display and diorama would be very much against the tradition of the BS-competition.

Exactly - the idea is to build something (well, obviously!) which can be used in a game, whether it's a piece of scenery, a contraption or a board.
So the aim is to find a theme which people are interested in AND which fits the bill.  :D

I'm up for the next challenge. 3rd time's a charm right?  My goal remains the same, get out of the group stage.

Stealth sounds interesting but could lead to a lot of black color.

I just thought of something: a toy conversion. Just that; using a toy as a base for a gaming piece, be that terrain or gameable...

I think you should clarify that to mean children's toy.   ;)
