    Hi Dhabih, was hoping you could clear a few things up.

    "Entrants may use intellectual property from Warhammer Fantasy Battles games (the “Warhammer Fantasy Materials”)."


    Is this licence exclusively Warhammer Fantasy Battle (version 8)? or does it include the entire catalogue, including the most recent Warhammer Age of Sigmar (version 9)?.
    I can see a few artists over on polycount already making sets based on age of Sigmar figures and would hate to see them not be considered due to IP licencing issues.

    And

    "Winners. Valve, SEGA and Games Workshop, in their sole discretion, will select up to eight (8) winning entries no later than August 22nd, 2016."

    "Entries are open from 10:00 am Pacific Daylight Savings Time on April 29th, 2016, to 10:00 am Pacific Standard Time on August 29th, 2016 (the "Entry Period")."


    to summarise

    Winner selection no later than the 22nd, entries close on the 29th.

    Thanks for the time, and to everyone for putting togeather such a fantastic IP crossover!.

    I came here to post the exact same question as Lenny for the exact same reason.

    I would love to have the eligible universe question cleared up.

    All the best and thank you!

    Hi,
    This contest does not cover Warhammer Age of Sigmar (version 9) as part of the eligible IP. Hope that clears it up!

    Thanks!

    I am a little confused about submission deadline. Is it the 22nd, or is 29th too late - technically?

    Thanks!

    I have the same question: Is the submission deadline the 22nd or the 29th of August? There are 7 days of difference, I think this is a very important change...
