Just for clarification's sake,
Are we allowed to enter our custom figures that do contain custom pieces?
Sorry to be a bother and add another question.

another question,sorry if asked before, can the person who wins several categories choose the forfeited prize himself/herself or the admins choose the prize for him? and i also want to know if one wins 6 categories and awarded with yellow castle does that mean that yellow castle will be the only prize for that person?

(don't think that i will enter several categories and win every single of them but i am curious :wink: )

You can use custom figures and accessories in the battles category. Grading will be influenced by details in landscaping, battle action, faction "coolness", rubble and debris, smaller buildings, etc. Figures are only one part of the entry.

The Master Builder recieves the Yellow Castle and one first place prize. If a person wins two categories, they will be contacted to pick which prize they want, and then the second place person in the other category will win first place and the other prize. We want multiple fans to win prizes, not to have one master builder win everything ;)

Ok, not that I was hoping it would boost my score, I just have quite a few Goblins that I thought would be fun to have battling. :)

Thanks.

I haven't read the forum, so I apologize if I am repeating anybody's questions.
For the custom figure category, do you need to create custom pieces, or can you alter LEGO helmets or shields without actually creating new ones out of scupley or plastecine?

Secondly, for the battle scene category, does the faction that you choose alter your score. I have mostly KKII figures at home, and, since these are not very popular, will using them lower my score if I enter?

Thank you in advance.

Any sort of customization is fine - things like painting, decals, altering official elements, making your own out of sculpy, whatever.

We're most concerned about the coolness of the creation. We're not going to discriminate against a particular faction--it's more about how you use them.

Hi, Admins :)

Is it allowable to submit pictures as portraits rather than landscapes - at the same dimensions (600x800) ?

Thanks

Just a heads up to you admins. I found an error in one of the categories concerning an entry.

In the battle category, there is an entry called "Market Stand" submitted by Amanda/Lamanda2. I'm sure you admins and Amanda/Lamanda2
didn't mean for it to fall in there, but it's there. Maybe all this Q and A from us members is getting you guys sloppy. :wink:

Thanks for reminding me to fix that. It's in medieval life now.

Where do I have to submit my custom minifig?

Can I use a weapon that I got from an action figure set?
