Conversion Challenge - The Stegadon

The "Getting the most out of the new Stegadon kit if you're not a Lizardman player" Conversion Challenge!

The Adept's Forge, in conjunction with Dave Taylor Miniatures, is pleased to present the kick-off to what will hopefully be an ongoing series of cool idea-sharing and excitingly executed conversions.

All too often, there's a great, new, plastic kit that you just can't help but want to put together. Perhaps, however, you're not into the army for which the kit has been released and you just can't bring yourself to build a one-off, never to be used again model. Enter the Conversion Challenge.

Over the next five to six weeks, a group of friends and veteran hobbyists will take on the challenge of converting the fantastic new Stegadon plastic kit into something they can more readily use in one of their existing armies. The rules are simple. Take (at least) one Stegadon kit, add heaping helpings of creativity and modeling talent, and create a masterpiece of conversion work that will be admired the world over (or perhaps just over the world wide web). Photos will be taken around the end of March and half will be posted on http://theadeptsforge.blogspot.com, while the other half will be posted on http://davetaylorminiatures.blogspot.com. Polls will be set up for voting and the winner will receive bragging rights, possibly even a prize from the archives.

We'll be posting the names of the contestants shortly, so keep your eyes peeled for the mighty creations come late March.
