I've wanted to have the Kings Castle box back for years! I'll have to enter for the chance just to win the box

Well if you do win and you don't want the pieces I'll be more then happy to keep them.

No! Me! ME! ME! :D
You want a piece of me?!?!

I will.

Lord Felix wrote:Oh wow... Those prizes are amazing. I would be tempted to open it if I had any of the winners.


Thanks! Just so you know though, they have been opened. They aren't MISB, but in exceptional condition.

I think I hear a challenge here! :)

Lord Tyler II wrote:Is there a Baseplate size limit?


No size limits at all.

gambort wrote:Those prizes are simply amazing. If I can work out a tricky way to use my limited castle fig resources in a full battle I may feel compelled to enter this.

If I ever host a contest I'm going to add "Anyone who asks a rules question that has already been answered will be barred from entering the contest".


I would love to see a Castle battle from you. The more train fans we can convert, the better. ;) And I'm real close to agreeing with you on the multiple question thing. :D

Hewkiril wrote:Wow, those prizes are amazing. But I, too, have a question-

Must the content of the MoC be strictly historical, or could there be, as a visual joke, one soldier with a gun among the spearmen [as an example]?


Modern weapons are out. I understand where you are coming from, but its too much of a slippery slope for this contest.

DARKspawn wrote:I have a question, can I use fantasy creations similar in craziness to the Troll Battle Wheel Castle set? Maybe something like ...oh, I dunno... a steam powered dwarf built mecha? ;)

jens wrote:Oh, I have to dig out a few bricks and show DARKSpawn how to build really MOCs :wink:


;) Bang a gong, it is on!

I can't wait to see what you come up with, Jens :D


Yes, weird fantasy creations are fine. Just make sure you completely avoid any kind of modern weaponry. No cannons, chain guns, nukes, etc.

I knew you would respond to Jens challenge! This should be fun, since Jens is a former Battles Contest champion.

plucky wrote:Ooh ooh, can I win just the boxes?


No! You have to take the pieces too! :D

Heir of Black Falcon wrote:Those prizes are amazing. What a fantastic gift. Very nice of you not to be the happy home of them and to give them away as well. Two very generous gentlemen.


Thanks, I appreciate the comments. By the way, just so everyone knows, the donor is a very generous lady. ;)

Lewa Rocks wrote:Oooooooo. Awesome! I'm going to join. Sweet prizes too! :wink:


Good!

LORD DOOM wrote:I win. :wink:


Not yet. ;) However, I do accept bribes. They don't usually have any effect on my judging, but I do accept them...

Lewa Rocks wrote:Sorry for the noob question (I'm new) but can we have multiple entry's?


Absolutely.

leaf_of_lire wrote:Can figs be charging at each other or do they have to be whacking at their foes?

Prizes are great also :D .
hmm... my first contest entry...


They can be doing either, neither, or both. It is entirely up to you. It just has to be able to be called a "battle" of some sort. I'm pretty loose in my definitions. A battle can be two figs slugging it out with fists on up to 100,000 figs engaged in an epic war for control of the world. It really is up to you.

Thanks, its my favorite too. ;)

Suvied wrote:It is back! Now to the building.


Yup, its back and I see you are too! (Just so everyone knows the score...Suvied is the only member to have won a prize in both of the previous contests)

Whew! I got through all the questions so far! Keep 'em coming and keep on building! We have some great entries so far...I'm loving what I'm seeing. :)

Later,

No, you aren't bending the rules. Black and white is fine.
