2018 Members Assembly Challenge

Post by kturock » Fri Jan 05, 2018 4:42 pm

3rd Annual Bartertown Members Assembly Challenge!!!

Here are the revised points scoring system for building models.

You get 1 point for each piece you attach. If the arm attaches to the hand/gun; that's 2 pieces.
Front torso to back torso with legs, 2 pieces. 2 points.
If the legs attach to a front torso and a separate back torso, that 3 points.
Head and hair separate, 1 point each.
If you customize a model, by adding bits to it or change a weapon, say swap a weapon, you get points for the pieces. For example, the arm has a no weapon, and the hand weapon are 1 piece; that's 2 points. If the hand/arm/weapon are already molded as 1 piece [1 point] and you cut the weapon off and add a gun; that's 2 pieces, 2 points.
So yes, you get more points for more work.

ALSO you get points for extra parts that you build to swap out; either by using magnets, pins or tongue and groove.

Bases ONLY IF THEY ARE INTEGRAL, INCLUDED IN THE MODEL KIT, are counted. [See example below.]
Pouches, holsters, grenades, stikkbombs, knives and such that are optional bits are ONLY COUNTED IF THEY ARE ATTACHED WHEN BUILT AND PHOTOS TAKEN. [I don't attach mine until after the model is painted, so I don't get points for them.]

Keep track of your pieces.

Now get building!

kturock 795 PPP

Who else is in?

Example This model has a pre-molded base. I attached it to another base to give it more stability. IT GETS NO POINTS because it was a base included with the model.
If you attach a model, with a base, to another base, say for a diorama, then it DOES NOT get points for the extra base.
If you put material on the base, for scenary, say sand, flock, cork, it/they don't count for points.
If you build or convert another model to the base, it DOES GET POINTS. For example; the Aleguzler Gargant has a model human that can be added to his hand or modded to be running away. That 1 piece model is worth 1 point attached to the base or the model's hand; or where ever you attach it.

POINTS!
20180109_005306.jpg
20 points by current scheme.
More, if I get points for hand-swaps on most models to add 40k guns (Khorne Cultists), and adding holstered guns, etc to the ones that aren't holding guns.
I don't even remember how many pieces each one was in, if we go by the "1 point per piece" scheme being discussed.
20180109_000101.jpg
5 Termies: 10 points by current scheme (40, if using poits/piece, as they're 8 pieces each - excluding bases)
10 WHFB Chaos Marauders with Gun swaps: 10 by current scheme, with bonuses if converting to hold bolters count [more Khorne Cultists] (81, if using points/piece - 7 per cultist [x9] & 9 for cultist champ - excluding bases).

So, 40 points or... I don't know how many points. LOL

You better start counting pieces for piece counts. ;-)
I'm looking at the instructions and counting from there.

I usually don't add holsters, packs, belt knives, stick bombs and such until I paint the model. None of my Necromunda models have them. If they get added, it'll be later. But then again, they're in last years contest.

None of those would count, though. Grenade packs and things like that aren't included in the suggested "point per piece" idea.
I'm not saying we couldn't add them... just that we haven't yet.

I think, rather than derail THIS tread, we can just discuss it in the other one.
We probably should have done more discussion in advance. ; )

Does this post need to be edited to account for the point per piece theme we discussed? IE single cast model glued to base = 1 point. two part model glued to base = 2 points?

I did a count.
There are 96 different pieces here, including plasticard, bits, and cut pieces that were repositioned into 2 pieces.
(This image doesn't show it, but there are 2 turrets. Both are included in the 96 pieces, and are shown in the thread I posted about it)
Image

+96

Not sure if there are extra points involved for complexity, but the nature of this thing (only the base of the cab, tires and the engine are assembled as expected) meant that I have 12 to 14 hours of work in on this thing.

I need to get a point count on that Warlord Titan Claw, now! LOL

Eric

There might even be more. I kinda lost count of all the little plasticard bits.

Probably undercounted here, but I have a minimum of 108 pieces:
Image

I have about 20 hours, all told, into this piece.
Due to the nature of the conversions and amount of "creativity" I had to use to get things together, I'm not sure if it's worth bonus points.
God knows it took longer than almost any other I've assembled.

+108
