ATTN ALL: Two new contests from WK!!

Quote from: Foolscap - Senior CE Representative for WK
Celebrate the release of Ground Assault, the second set of the Star Wars Pocketmodel TCG with not one, but two contests.

I have secured some particularly nice prizes for this including collector tins, play mats and uncut card sheets signed by Star Wars Pocketmodel TCG designers Mike Elliot and Ethan Pasternack.

The first contest is for a fleet and deck build of the battle of Endor.


THE BUILD CONTEST

Build the best representation of the Imperial and Rebel forces for the battle of Endor using any currently available models. If it is in the gallery, then you can use it.

Build a standard 30 card deck, 20 stars for the fleet and 10 in reserves for each side.

Winning entries will be selected based on their creativity, playability and adherence to theme.


THE DIORAMA CONTEST

The second contest is a diorama of the Battle of Hoth.

Constuct your diorama; any models from Ground assault may be used?those shield generators from the Battle of Hoth tins should come in very handy.
Model bases do not need to be included.
A modest amount of ?special effect? work with photo editing software is allowed provided that the models are recognizable as Star Wars Pocketmodels.

Send us pictures of your completed diorama for judging.

Entries for either contest are due by December 16th.

Send your entries to organizedplay@wizkidsgames.com

WOOWOO! Lets git'er done!

Oh heck. I don't have enough models for those! I might be able to make a scene for the space battle in Star Wars Six, though.

Yes.  They specify battle of endor, but do not mention whether it be the ground or space battle (or both?).

Keep in mind that the Battle of Endor 'Build Contest' must be put together with only 'Set 1.0' units and cards, because it must be built with only "available units and cards" - the ones displayed in the WizKids SWPM Gallery.

EDIT: Both the Base set and GA are legal to use in the contest as per Foolscap.

That can't possibly be true. They must be assuming the GA gallery will be in place. It makes no sense if the contest is limited to the Base Set only. The real question is can we use the Base Set in addition to GA.

Good questions. My bet (and it's just a guess) is that we can use GA and BS units. It is the battle of Endor, after all, and both were present. I just wish we had units like Home One and Executor to build the space fleets. I'll find out specifics if I can about what's legal in the contest as far as released sets and combinations.

I guess it all depends on how quick they are to upload the GA list to their gallery.  Or if Foolscap can make an amendment to the rule to include GA, then one could submit their build regardless of what is lacking on the site.

Again, it's all in the wording. :P

As of this post, it looks as if the WK site is starting to make changes to its gallery.  Not only is there a "1.0" list, but a new option labeled "Ground Assault" has popped up as well.  At the moment choosing "Ground Assault" just takes you to Base set images, but it appears that things are moving forward. :)

Translation:  I would say that the GA list (whether visible on the official site or not) is legal to use for the Build Contest!
