[Voting] Challenge 2016: Research and Development
Posted: Oct 02 2016 11:01
Greetings friends of the greater good.
Welcome to our exhibition, where Fio and allies alike have gathered from every corner of the empire to showcase their latest contributions to our ever evolving forces. New battlesuits, vehicles, allies, and more await your review. Which R&D elements rise above their peers and should be pursued further? That is for you to decide. Explore the exhibition, select the most worthy entries, and let the creativity flow!
The complete collection of entries can be downloaded HERE.
Each entry thumbnail links to a PDF for that particular entry.
As a refresher, please see the contest criteria below:
- One custom unit (either of your creation, or of one of our included examples) for a fan-created codex.
- Your unit may fit any of the following force organization slots: HQ, Troops, Elites, Fast Attack, Heavy Support, or Fortification.
- No WIP threads are permitted during the challenge. We encourage all entrants to keep a log of their progress to post after the challenge ends.
- Entries consist of 2 codex pages which fit the templates below.
- Units will be judged based on their quality of conversion and painting, quality of fluff, and quality/balance of rules. It is recommended to try your unit in a game or two to help nail down its tactical ability.
Community Choice: The ATT community will vote on their favorite entries from among the legal submissions to determine 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners.

The 1st Judges Choice Award winner will receive one Tidewall Shieldline, Droneport, or Gunrig - courtesy of Czar Ziggy.
The 2nd Judges Choice Award winner will receive one TX4 Piranha kit - courtesy of Macknight.
