Create a Regiment of Renown Competition- Feedback.
#1
Now that the (in)famous Golden Pike is well established, well made it through two competitions, our eyes turn to the introduction of another competition to run alongside it.
We are looking at starting a competition to design a Regiment of Renown, and want to know how much interest there would be.
I won't post up all the rules now (as i haven't worked through them all yet) but the basic gist of them would be to allow all people of varying fluff writing and rules balancing abilities to take part.
There will be a "Brief" form to fill in. It will be enough to give an idea on the regiment. There will be no extra credit for people who write pages of fluff, or sit all night with a calculator and stack of army books figuring points costs (thats our job Tongue , although bribing the head judge with Roast Dinner might help Big Grin )
I won't go into detail now on the rest of the process but suffice to say you don't need to be the most coherent fluff writer (nobody in mind honest Dodgy ) or be able to points cost rules.

So, who thinks there would be interest in such a competition?

I don't think there is interest in such a competition.

With to many regiments of renown, the renown of the other regiments get lower and lower. It's like the stars of hollywood, to much, to many, and eventually they all seem the same. We already have 21 regiments of renown and the old(er) ones are being re-done also already by someone on this forum.

I think that after 1 or 2 competitions, the interest there is will vanish in thin air.

Maybe with an other concept this could work, but I cannot think what that concept might be right now.....

It could be a fun, although I tend to agree with Henerius a bit. But I tend to be more of an "inside-the-framework-of-the-rules" guy. Could be fun, though.

Henerius makes a good point. Depends on how often you were planning on running it, might be something nice to roll out every now and again. To often and we would have them coming out of our ears.

Although I do have some interesting ideas.

How many ideas can we submit Wink

Don't worry, it wasn't planned to happen too often Big Grin

And FYI in the last two evenings i've thought up 4 very distinct regiments. Try to remember the point of a regiment of renown as a: they are famous units (and i can name a dozen British Army regiments off the top of my head, they wont be less famous if another one does something to become famous) and b: they have something to set them apart from the others, meaning that as long as you can come up with something individual then you won't run out Big Grin

and would it also have a side dish like potatoes ox tail soup
some home made bread with butter on top
glazed carrots and a pine apple upside down cake
and a dark lagger beer served at room temperture

LOL, you'll make a fine wife for someone someday. Just hope he has a big checkbook otherwise the dude is going to be broke all the time.

Back on topic, Having Models for the unit is a good idea.
