it doesn't have to be a unit.  you can just paint a single model.  they just want a valid representation of your color scheme.  so, it doesn't cost that much at all.

 Sorry Andes but I think it is cool, I love being creative like that. So if I am not one of the ten the pick I still had fun doing it. As in I have to mail it to them and such I can understand that it would be more expensive if they sent you something and they paid for postage. As to buying  a new sqaud if you created your own already you do not have to buy a new one. Also of course they want you to buy a new one being a business that is kinda what their suppose to do.

New Space Marine Chapter Contest

 I just go finished reading the new White Dwarf and noticed that GW is having a new contest (On page 45) about creating your own Space Marine chapter. This is really a great idea in my opinion.
 Hopefully we can also see, Eldar Craft world, Hive fleets, Ork Waaaaaagggghhhhhsss s and such in contest later on..

I'm less enthusiastic. Let's see... I have to buy a squad, spend a bunch of my time working on it, pay to mail it in to them, only to have them throw it out? I don't think so.

So what exactly do they want?? the new white dwarf isn't here yet. My army is completely a new Space Marine Chapter:
Ghostwing. Kick a$$ stories, pics and rules. Making a web page for it.

Your right, it can be a single figure. I was told that it was supposed to be a squad. Mea culpa.

For one Marine, I agree it'd be a fun project. Gotta get to work on my Emperor's Polyps chapter ;)

me? I may enter as I am making a new chater anyway. I figure if I throw in a bunch of convertions I might have a very slim chance of getting an honourable mention. Although the special character is gonna be tougher. I have always thought that all special characters should wear termi armour so I will have to make a guy in termi armour, yet more convertion work. who knows....

 My bad it is one model, sorry for the misinformation. Oh scars I had an Idea that you may like. I was looking through some old Iron Man comics and found a character named the Prolitarian. He was a Russian super hero during th communism days. Red Armor and looked quiet a bit like a SM. Now if I can just paint a hammer and sickle that small on a SM model. Any have suggestions on weather I should us a Hammer or Sickle for a special weapon for my main character?

 I just thought it would be cool just for the differnce factor as well. I am thinking a Thunder Hammer with a sickle design on it.

  I think the Thunder Hammer is the right way to go with this. And need a bear banner for them to.. (Russian bear and all)
