sml_gallery_62972_10568_1098.jpg Welcome to the Event

Welcome to the second incarnation of "The Great Baalite Bake Off" the Blood Angels sub-forum’s premier modelling event!

To make reading the rules a less intimidating affair, I’m organising them in distinct posts so frater can easily access them and refer to them throughout the event.

You can find the links to individual topics below: Edited by Jolemai

sml_gallery_62972_10568_1098.jpg Rules for the GBBO


sml_gallery_62972_14467_21119.jpg
Chaplain, sockwithaticket
Below are the rules which govern The Great Baalite Bakeoff 2019:

Duration
Just under two months from February 11th to April 1st, 2019. Participants can join at any time during the lifetime of the event.

Entry requirements
The entry requirements are thus:
  • As this is a Blood Angels event, participants must make a vow relevant to our Faction from Warhammer 40000. You may pledge as many times as you wish and a vow may be as large or as small as you wish, but each vow needs to be completed before the next one is made
  • You must declare participation a minimum of 24 hours prior to declaring a completion. However, I don't mind if you've had a little head start...
  • Participation is registered by making your vow . It is declared complete when you post a series of completion pictures and a parts list
Entry Template
A vow is made using the following template:



I [insert name here] rise to the challenge of The Great Baalite Bake Off and vow to kitbash [insert units here] on or before April 1st, 2019. Success will bring honour to the [insert Chapter/Legion/Strikeforce/etc], whilst failure is not an option...


Completion Template
Here is an example of a completion:

Upon satisfactory completion of your kitbash, you are entitled to carry the completion badge as well and your entry will henceforth be under consideration for the finals.







Behold and feast your eyes on the:

GBBO participation

And the:

GBBO completion

gallery_62972_14467_9630.jpg


The completion award is won, and may be carried, when completing a vow but lost if any vow's are incomplete by the end of the event. Once the doors are closed, the external judges will chose the legal entries that they consider the best, and these will be form a poll in the General PCA sub-forum for Frater to vote who is the overall winner. (There will also be special badges for the overall winner and runners up.)

Who will shine the most in this display of loyalty to our Primarch and Legion?

sml_gallery_62972_10568_1098.jpg FAQs


sml_gallery_62972_14467_17390.jpg
Sanguinary Priest, Spagunk
The following FAQs will hopefully answer any question you may have. That said, feel free to PM me or reply below if you have something not covered here.


Q: Can I enter OOP Characters like Moriar?
A: The rules state that any entry has to be Codex-legal. If you wanted to model Moriar (or Cassor the Damned), he would need to be modelled as a Chaplain Venerable Dreadnought or a Librarian Dreadnought. Veteran Sergeant Cleutin is more flexible, he could be a Company Standard Bearer or even a Captain (if you model the Shroud of Sanguinius it would arguably need to be creative to avoid breaking the Codex-legal rule - otherwise this would be an out of competition entry). Sadly, there is currently no option for a Sanguinary Priest in TDA so this would be an out of competition entry. Rafaen could be a suitable candidate from the Visions of Sanguinius stratagem with a powerfist, Karlaen would need to be a kitbashed TDA Captain with a relic hammer.

Q: Can I enter models which don't have the CHARACTER keyword?
A: For an in-competition entry, the models need this keyword. That said, what you do with your models afterwards to your choice – so if you enter a “Captain” earmarked for something else later (for example, a Devastator Sergeant) then just make sure it's a legal choice wargear-wise (see below). Otherwise, it will be an out of competition entry

Q: As it's a kitbash event, can I enter a squad of marines armed with, say, frag cannons?
A: The last thing we want to do is stifle creativity, so if you wanted to do this in lieu of a normal entry then it would be an out of competition entry – although entering a CHARACTER is preferred. If you really want to go down this route, just make sure each model shows of it's allegiance to Faction Blood Angels

Q: Can I enter a BA Killteam?
A: Whilst a BA killteam seems like an ideal entry for this event, anything without the CHARACTER keyword is to be considered an out of competition entry. Basically, as this is our ETL prequel event, we need codex-legal stuff ready for the ETL (and Killteams are excluded from the ETL)

Q: Why is my model considered an out of competition entry?
A: Basically, anything which doesn't comply with the rules of the event will be considered an out of competition entry. For example, your model might not be Codex-legal, or it may have fallen foul of the parts restrictions. If you still can't work out why, then please send me a PM.

Q: Can I make something for my Successor Chapter?
A: Provided your Successor Chapter is Faction Blood Angels, then yes – just make sure the model shows off something to show their allegiance. For homebrew Chapters, this will require you to put something on the model to show it meshes with that. A full list of known Successors can be found here.

Q: What do you mean by something which shows of the model's allegiance to Faction Blood Angels?
A: Pretty much anything iconic for us. This could be as simply as some brass etch, a moulded shoulder pad, “nipple” armour, and so on. It could be some basic green stuff like a blood drop, or it could even be an already painted piece displaying your freehand/transfer heraldry (in the case of a Successor for example). Be creative!

Q: Can I enter something for the IXth Legion like in your other events?
A: Yes you can, but they would need to be Codex-legal for the 40k Blood Angels. As an example, a Moritat could pass as a gunslinging Captain but would also require an iron halo (or counts-as)

Q: What must I include on my model?
A: All entries are required to be Codex-legal, have something to show their allegiance Faction Blood Angels and must accurately represent the model's Datasheet entry. Here's the full list of requirements:
  • Captains require an iron halo (or counts-as)
  • Chaplains require a crozius arcanum and rosarius (or counts-as)
  • Librarian Dreadnoughts require a furioso force halberd and psychic hood (or counts-as)
  • Librarians require a force weapon and psychic hood (or counts-as)
  • Named Characters must accurately represent their Datasheet as possible (so no giving Dante a power lance)
  • Sanguinary Priests/Novitiate require a chalice and narthecium (or counts-as)
  • Techmarines require a servo arm/servo harness/jump pack (or counts-as)
  • Ancients require a banner
  • Champions require a power sword and combat shield
Q: How do I post pics in a thread?
A: Well, there are many ways to do that: If you have already uploaded it in an image-hosting site, you can copy the image address and then paste it straight to your post using the “image” tool at the menu of your post editor.

However, we always recommend you use the B&C gallery. If you’re not familiar with this feature, you can find a quick walkthrough below. Feel free to contact me should you have any questions.


Uploading pictures from your PC/mobile to the B&C Gallery
Step 1: Go to Gallery. The link to the Gallery can be found in the drop down menu adjacent to your name on the B&C home page. If you're using a mobile device, switch to the full version of the website using the tab at the bottom left of your screen.
Step 2: Once in the Gallery click on the red “upload” button that can be found on the top side
Step 3: You get the option the either create a new album or select an existing album or select category. Assuming you’re a first time user of this feature click on “Create a New Album”
Step 4: Name your Album (e.g. GBBO 19) and if you want you may add a description (e.g. miniatures painted for the 2019 GBBO event). You may then assign it to a specific category to reflect the theme of the content or just leave it at the default “The Bolter & Chainsword”. You can further customise this by allowing/disallowing comments and/or ratings.
Step 5: Once you’ve created the album you may start uploading the pictures from your PC. To do that you click on “Choose File” button and then select the pics you want to upload from your PC. Make double sure that the pics a B&C appropriate.
Step 6: Once the pics are uploaded, click on the “Review & Publish” button located at the bottom right of the screen. Here, for each picture, you can add tags, rotate the image add a tittle and a description. Once you’re happy with it, click the “Finish and Publish” button at the bottom of the screen. The pictures are uploaded to your gallery!


Posting picture from your gallery to a thread
Step 1: Go to your gallery and select the album that contains the pics you want to post (e.g. RTS 18)
Step 2: Select the picture you want and double-click on it so it will become enlarged. By right-clicking on it you will be offered the option to select size. The options are “Thumbnail”, “Small”, “Medium”, “Large”. Select the size you want (e.g. “Medium”).
Step 3: You then can copy the image straight (or copy the image address) and paste it in your post (or use the the image function in your post editor to paste the image address). Now you should have your picture visible in your post.

Absolutely fine, all those parts are unrestricted in their use. What are you thinking of serving up? :)

The body is my issue. If instead of the 2nd ed arm I used a 3rd ed tac arm, then it wouldn't be legal, right?

 

It's a lieutenant on foot.

Hmmm, slow start here.

 

I, Zebulon rise to the challenge of The Great Baalite Bake Off and vow to kitbash a Commander Dante, another Captain Smash (because he’s always a good looking model to bring to the fight) and a Chaplain Lemartes on or before April 1st, 2019. Success will bring honour to the Blood Angels, whilst failure is not an option...

 

Edit:

PS: please confirm that priming is okay? As many of my bits already have some primer on...

As per the rules, the odd painted piece is OK (such as one scavenged off another model) but a fully undercoated or painted model is not and thus would be an out of competition entry.

 

Ideally, submissions will be bare plastic so the judges can better see the parts used :)

Looks like I'm going to bear down and finish the TDA ancient. He's probably an OOC build since his legs and front torso are a TDA from Dark vengeance. His back and arms will be from the fancy BA TDA kit though.

I'm not familiar with the model. Have you a picture? Are you basically taking an existing model and adding bits to it?

First Lieutenant entry, welcome aboard :)

I've taken the chain fist terminator from the dark vengeance set and chopped his back off and removed all Dark Angel iconography. I'm going to replaced it with a normal space marine TDA back, and the arms will be a banner from the BA kit as well as whichever weapon option I decide on.

OOC, because I really wanted to use Tolmeron's body and pose to make a Primaris size Captain with TH.

Edit: Quick question, can we add a bit of color to basing and environment bits to better convey what they are meant to be? ex: a bit of grey to smoke, orange to fire, instead of it just being undifferentiated bits and stuff?

Harrumph. I think it’s best I post a parts photo prior to starting each of my vowed models then so you can judge whether they will comply or be OOC. You see, generally I prime on-sprue and so most of my spare bits are primed black or white.

 

Anyway, I’ll let you be the judge but for me primer isn’t part of the paint-job.

Dont-Be-Haten, Sanguinary Noviate of the Blood Angels sub-forum and first of his name, rise to the challenge of The Great Baalite Bake Off and vow to kitbash Thereon, Keeper of the Mantle (Terminator Ancient with Lightning claw) on or before April 1st, 2019. Success will bring honour to the Carmine Blades, whilst failure is not an option...

I'm going to make him a competition entry, seeing as how all of the Blood Angel Terminators are Legs and back torso combined. The only difference is this model was a former Dark Vengeance model I'm customizing. I've removed all iconography and added some BA Goodness to it. However; if Jole rules he's OOC that's fine.
