Want to win some ghoulishly delightful prizes? Enter our Tank Hollow Haunted House Contest by designing your very own house to be used on the TankRewards.com website during the Halloween season.

 

All you have to do is use one of the house templates below and create a spooky residence of your very own. 

Make sure to follow all the rules and then send your entry with your in game name in the subject line to: RollOut@wargaming.net

 

If your house is selected you'll receive 5 chances to trick or treat on TankRewards.com during the Tank Hollow event! Each trick or treat gives you some sweet prizes ranging from boosters, gold to rare premium tanks 

Plus Meathead, Q, Bunny, Cabbage and VeganZombies will be selecting their favorites for extra special prizes along with awarding the house that gets visited the most during Tank Hollow!

The more participation we get the bigger the prizes!

 

How to Make a House:

Advanced Template:
  • Start by downloading the advanced template
  • The advanced file contains 3 folders, one for each house, and 3 layers for the different style of lights: You can turn the lights on and off or remove them entirely and fill in whatever you want
  • The windows are cut out for you in the advanced version so you can hide things in the background.
  • You can draw on each of the different layers labeled “Paint Here” and the mask will keep you from going outside the lines or you can make new layer if you want to go crazy and draw everywhere.
  • When in doubt, duplicate your layers.

Make sure you save your image in a format that supports transparencies such as PNG!

 
Basic Template:
  • Start by downloading the basic template
  • Choose the PNG file that has the house you want to use and the correct lighting - There is an image for each house and a separate file if you want the lights on.
  • Use Paint or any online photo editor (See Below) paint over any of the houses. 
  • Copy paste the windows you want the lights on over the image of the house!

Looks like you like you made it pretty easy to participate with links to editing software and the like. +1 for that.


 

I'm not going to participate in this, but I'm looking forward to seeing the entries. This community can come up with some pretty creative stuff.


 

You guys should do something similar with creating new maps for the game.

Sweet the Tank Hollow event again. That was a great event last year got a lot of usable stuff from it. Hope it has the same stuff available this year.

Yes! but make sure each entry is complete and use-able. I'm not giving away 5 chances for trick or treating for 20 copies of a slightly altered image!

 

Working on my entry this week. I'll share it here when I'm done but I'll post some of my favorites as they come in.

Also feel free to post your entries here as well!

@Quemapueblos: Can you tell us at what resolution will the images be used on the tankrewards website?
Im working on my entry but Im wondering (in case it is chosen) if the details might be too small to notice in the end.

Is the entire 1300x1560 area available for use or is our added artwork restricted to the bounds of the respective buildings?

Update:  Did mine in paint 3d.  Itworks nicely and is backward comparable with paint.  Here's

my entry and while I feel it's not my best, with practice I can get better at using it's 3d features...
