Wow, thank-you to everyone who voted and thank-you to everyone who voted for the Roebuck!
Congratulations also to Phoenix, well done!

A big thank-you to Patrick for running the competition and donating the prizes; while I have been playing Crimson Skies on and off since its inception I am ashamed to say that this will be my first actual CS miniature... I'm in two minds about whether to actually allow its its freedom from the packet... ;-)

Thanks everyone, good luck next time!

Unlike feggula, I actually have some CS minis, but like him, I want to say thanks to everyone! The designs were a lot of fun to work on and the rules were really fun and interesting to work with, and the entries were really cool. Everyone did a great job, and I'm looking forward to next time!

I'm thinking of ideas for the next contest. Any ideas?

One of my thoughts was to have a PBEM duel where one fighter and one pilot of your choice goes against one fighter and one pilot of my choice. Whoever shoots my pilot down wins something?

I don't know. I don't have a ton of time, but I would like to keep interest up in the community if I can.

thoughts?

What about : Design a plane for a little nation that no one wrote much about it (Lakota Nations as an example)
Write a short background a pilot group that are neither Pirates or a militia
Write a short background about a special place in north america (Lovecraft County or Castle rock anyone?)

I would aim the contest at fleshing out the CSverse. But this is only my HO...

The ideas I had were to design planes/zeppelins for specific roles and missions, and maybe not to limit to just one flyer either.

For example, Nation A needs a cargo plane and escorts to ship a valuable cargo. You have $20,000 to design and build the cargo plane and 2 or more escorts.
Or you are the leader of a starting pirate band who has eyes on a delicious passenger zeppelin with all it's rich occupants. Design a band consisting of at least 3 planes with at least one being a cargo plane able to hold 10 boarders. You have intel suggesting that the passenger liner will have onboard security and probably 2 or more escort planes. You have $20,000.

Or maybe have two angles, one competition for the pirate band, and then one competition for the passenger zeppelin and escorts and then with all voting secret see which one wins and then hey, someone could then actually play the game using both wining designs and see what would actually happen!

You could also factor other things like range, minimum speed for racers and the like. The sky's the limit! :P

Oh, if you do go with costs, then I would recommend that we have a house ruling, such as that potentially going to be used by SMOCS which would be to reverse the target number for plane sizes for costings. Eg, a BTN 1 plane would actually use BTN 10 for costs; this would make the larger planes more expensive.
