Howdy Boom Jockies! 

 

As you may have noticed I am pretty interested in the artistic side of World of Tanks. I do some tank skins and Models every once in a while. However, I found so many other creative folks in these sections and decided to start up a new contest called "From the Forge." 

Players send in some creations, they get voted on, and prizes go out. Creations we are looking for is anything World of Tanks themed created by our players. Some examples include pasta portrait of a Progetto Tank, Kit bashing a World of Tanks model to use in a popular table top game, or something a little more involved like making a pedal power tank car that shoots fireworks. (Please make that last one come true.) 

We will be doing some searches through our creative Forum Threads and gathering  entries for the first three weeks of every month. What I mean by "gather" is finding a bomb-diggity piece of art and requesting the creator if they would like to enter it into the contest. The last week will be put up to a community wide vote for Mystery Prize Packages including bonds, boosters, tanks, gold, and credits! 

 

While the searches are happening by our team it's not the only way to get your creation discovered. Players can email their machinations to us at From_The_Forge@Wargaming.net.

 

build a tank you like it i win koolll

Does real world reenacting count? We drive this around shooting Germans with of course blanks out of the two 1919A4s. Same machine guns as used on US and other nation's tanks.

 

Yes it does. Do you happen to have a video of these adventures?

I'll give this a shot, though it would have been nicer (or better) if there were some criteria included, like for example, design a tank (LT, MT, HT or TD) for xxxx-country that fits in xxxx-year or era & such, makes it easier to judge the entries as there's a criteria to go through, rather than just have random entries with no real way of knowing how to pick the winners. (Just my opinion)

I wanted the first one to be all inclusive, without any restrictions other than it be Tank themed. The votes for this months entries are coming from Wargaming Employees. 

 

In other months there will be an opportunity for more themed contests.

Does this involve actual tanks in the game that can be remodeled for entry? Basically do tank remodels count for the contest?

One other question.

Well incorporating outside 3D models (that are free, IE: turbosquid) with the World of Tanks models be considered a valid entry?

Hey KRZYBoop.. 2 more question..

When is the official Deadline for Entry for this contest?

and how many submissions can we send in?

I am about 75% done with 2 Tank projects ( 1 woodcrafted, 1 3DS Max remodel) to enter it to the contest..you just mentioned judging and such.. This info would be great to know so whether or not i have a shot to get my entries submitted.. Thank you in advance..

 

Submitted my Type 59 swamp buggy for now.. Images and \vehicles\chinese\Ch01_Type59 with the tank files are attached as a .7zip and ready for you guys to play with it :)

Another thing ya didnt mention but good idea to note.. what is and is not acceptable for entry as far as file types? .zips, video format, Image dim. size, file size, etc... just some notes for ya to keep in mind for your next contest :)

Youtube for videos or .png/ .jpg is the preferred format.
