Nick Brick 1:39am, 27 August 2011
"You know the music. Time to dance."

BrickForge has recently released Shock Trooper armor and helmets, and to celebrate and give some away, why not have an ODST themed contest!

Rules:
Build anything involving the ODSTs or from Halo 3: ODST, whether it's a forced perspective scene, vignette, diorama, or even vehicles like Drop Pods and Oilfants. Your entry ideas are not limited to the suggestions I give you. You can even go big and make a mini scale New Mombasa, or full size Silenced SMG or ODST armor! As long as it's from Halo 3: ODST or includes the ODSTs, it's fair game! No minimum or maximum size!

Only previously built minifigures or Covenant figures can be reused. All other parts of your build must be new or a revised version of a previous moc.

UPDATE SEPTEMBER 3, 2011
Some people are very confused on what is acceptable for this contest. You can build anything that appears in Halo 3 ODST, such as, but not limited to:
-Life Size objects like a Plasma Pistol, Silenced SMG, ODST Helmet
-Vehicles like a Warthog, Oilfant, Ghost
-Locations like onboard UNSC Say My Name or a FireFight map
-Custom minifigures (however, just a custom figure might not do well)
-Scene from the game
Size and scale of your moc can be whatever you choose, but do note that you have lots of time to go big.
OR you can build a scene (vignette, diorama, forced perspective, etc) from another game, a book, or from your own imagination, but an ODST must appear in the scene.

One entry per person. You may change or revise your entry as many times as you want up until the end date.

Contest begins August 26, 2011 and ends November 21, 2011.

Judging:
Judges are Wolf818 , Benny Brickster and Nick Brick
10 points for game accuracy (for any mocs canon) or originality (for any mocs non canon)
10 points for build creativity
10 points for build techniques
5 points for photography
5 points for judge's pick (each judge awards 1 entry with these 5 points.)
There are 40 possible points from each judge, for a total of 120 possible points per entry.

Prizes:
3rd place: 1 set of BrickForge Shock Trooper Armor and some BrickArms ODST weapons!

2nd place: 3 sets of BrickForge Shock Trooper Armor and some BrickArms ODST weapons!

1st place: 5 sets of BrickForge Shock Trooper Armor, some BrickArms ODST weapons!

Does it have to be the brickforge odst?
admin
Nick Brick 4 years ago
I guess that wasn't clear. You do not have to use the BrickForge ODST. Custom ODSTs are acceptable and, if done well, could score better.

I suggest if you havent played ODST in a long time that you at least play a short session of Mombasa streets, just to get a feel of what to build ;)
Or look up videos/ images.
admin
Nick Brick Posted 4 years ago. Edited by Nick Brick (admin) 4 years ago
You can even make a moc from another Halo game, as long as the ODSTs are included and are an important part of the moc.

Glue will eliminate the need for the tape :)
This is yet to be determined.
Indeed.
Yes. Home-made weapons are allowed.
I had a thought... Shipping a gun look-alike internationally might not go over well. If you (or anyone outside the United States) wins, I'll have to get creative.

admin
Nick Brick 4 years ago
Of course! That scene includes ODSTs so it is fair game.
admin
Nick Brick Posted 4 years ago. Edited by Nick Brick (admin) 4 years ago
If what you are making is from Halo 3: ODST, then you don't need to include an ODST. But if what you're making is not from Halo 3: ODST, then an ODST or ODSTs must be included. You aren't limited to making scenes either. You can make vehicles and weapons from ODST as well.

Instructions on how to post a photo are also in that thread.

Thanks Nick Brick, I didn't know whether to ask that question or not as it could deduct me some points for accuracy.

Accuracy only applies if what you're making is taken directly from the storyline. This judging category is replaced with originality for anyone taking a creative route, like making up a story that fits in the Halo Universe.

If you read the rules and previously asked questions, you'd know there's no size restrictions and that the scene you described includes ODSTs so it's allowed.

Both are allowed. I won't tell you how I or any other judge will view custom decals, so it's at your own risk.

Just to clarify, Can we build anything that is in anyway relevant to ODST's in some way shape or form?
I'm not much of a Halo player these days but, *I must win BF*
admin
Nick Brick 4 years ago
If what you're building is in Halo ODST (weapon, vehicle, location, character, or event) no ODST is required in your moc but it can be included. If your moc is from another game, another source, or of your own imagination, an ODST must be included.

From Halo ODST: moc can be anything.
Not from Halo ODST: you're kinda limited to scenes, dioramas, vignettes, forced perspective, etc. in order to have an ODST.

admin
Nick Brick 4 years ago
If it's from Halo 3: ODST, no ODST needed. Not from Halo 3: ODST? Yes, an ODST is needed. Custom ODSTs are allowed. You don't need to have BrickForge ODSTs to participate.
admin
Nick Brick 4 years ago
If you're confused, please read the entire rules post. Still confused, then read the posts in this thread. It's very likely your question is already answered. If your question isn't answered by the rules or previous questions, then ask.

Repeating what I already said is fun.

Nick, are you sure that we can't re-do our entries? I've ordered a lot of stuff for this contest, and I think that some of us haven't read the rule where you've said that we can't upload a new picture.

The deadline is untill 21 november... :-)
Please think about it.

I will think about it. If the other judges agree, then it will be allowed.

You can use clone brand pieces as well as custom pieces from brickarms and similar companies. I can't tell you if/how usage of that part will affect scoring from our judges.

Megabloks beam rifle? :)

yup

I will buy some double molded HALO pieces from Toywiz though.
