Now I will prepare the presentation including the Poll.


Sounds awesome; I can't wait to see what everyone has been doing with their riptides!

I fear there is no point in doing so- voting will only start on July 5th so maybe you shuld stop torturing yourself! ;)

Holy Moly - 27! I am really looking forward to seeing all those pop up now! I have the feeling, that it really had an impact on how many Riptides did not show up after the release from GW. What I mean is, that imagesearch on google should have brought up way more than it did. So is the influecne of ATT on the internet scene (concerning TAU)

Noticed this as well when looking for inspiration. The trusty Google drone could not find much to look at. Your observation is great, I think we did rob the internet of some riptide action.

Thinking of this, I suggest we do the Raven/Kingfisher/Commsuit next - not been able to find some good inspiration for one of those anywhere!
Definitely curious to see what people have got up to, was a great kit to put together but went for the safe option to start with. Definitely in the mood for something more ambitious for the next one - I was amazed that I've not even seen anyone use the flying base it came with yet!

I agree Macknight!!! The Raven is always a pretty sweet concept, and all these awesome modelers we have here would make it amazing!! Come on Che... We're going crazy here!!

Aside from the kingfisher, there a lot of other conversion opportunities out there with all of the new kits. Pathfinders and fliers come to mind first, since they are new kits and haven't been the subject of a challenge before. Personally I would love to see an allies/alien auxiliaries challenge.

Has there already been a decision on the challenge schedule?

Well, not wanting to rush things and wind up feeling that my work was sub-par, there was no way I would've made the deadline. With that said, I'll still be posting up a thread on my Riptide... it'll be interesting to see the other entries, just so I can gauge how my version would've held up to the competition. ;)
