Do the pictures have to be perfect?  I ask this because my camera isn`t that good.

Thats one of the problems with standard Lego contests. If someone has a High-Def Digital Camera, lots of gadgets and macro shot, And a nice white background with super shiny polished bricks. They make their entry stick out and they win the Tournament hands down, Not that their entry isn't bad, But review nearly every contest on this forum. I bet its a clear photoed entry.  :pir_laugh2:

The pictures don't have to be perfect, but it's always good to have the best pictures you can. Usually the winning entries have both a great MOC, and also good pictures that show how good the MOC is. An entry might have perfect pictures, but if the MOC is terrible I guarantee it still won't win. :pir-wink:

I need to do my research, this looks like a great contest. But I have a question, do the soldiers have to be 100% accurate. I want to make a battle with france, but I only have redcoats.
That's fine. :pir-classic:

I look forward to seeing your entries everyone!

I call Bunker Hill!It's my favorite battle and I just want to show lobsterbacks getting shot trying to go up a hill. :pir_laugh2: (And yes I know i can't "really" call a MOC I was just saying.)
In the begging there was only 3 men one liked the color red ,another liked the color blue,and the last one liked the color green.Then they found some coats and started hitting each other.That's how war was made.
I will only have respect for redcoats when they actually make a "General Redwater's amazing bleach!"

I'm in, I wonder if most people will use fleshies for added realism? It will be interesting to see.

I absolutely love this!  I can't wait to see the entries  :pir-sweet:

I hope someone does Trafalgar or the Nile.  It would take so many bricks and so much time but it
would be absolutely worth it in the end.  

I will probably enter in this one with a sea battle.  better get builing!

Maybe I will join too, if I have the time an the material in place ...

I don't have a lot of bricks and Admiral Woodhouse doesn't have a lot have a lot of minifigs so we were (We were not 100% sure yet) wondering if we could team up and combine our resources. If we won we would split the prize, I doubt we would win, but is this allowed?

So... It has to be based on a real battle?

I was thinking of doing a vig with two ships broadsiding each other... maybe the battle of flamborough head would work...
