In honor of me starting a new project and Blog (Starbase Alpha Romeo Charlie). I will be holding a contest. My first one.
The contest will be open to all my Blogs followers, and the owners of the Blogs I follow.
For the contest you will get to vote on the name of my new projects primary faction. This contest will run for two (2) weeks from now to 02JUNE2013.
The Primary Faction while headquartered on Earth is made up of about 30 other charter races.
Here are the names to chose from, to vote post a comment with the name you are voting for.
1) United Earth Star Navy (the current working faction name)
2) United Star Forces (or United Star Navy)
3) The Alliance of Planets (also known simply as the Alliance)
4) Planetary Confederation (also known simply as the Confederation)
A write in Faction name, if I like your name better then the above ones
may will use it or add it to the voting poll. If I dont use it as the
main faction I may just use it as one of the other races/factions.
The winning faction name will have all the names of the people who voted for it put into a hat, at which time one name will be drawn randomly as the winner. The winner will receive his choice of a Miniature ($10USD or about £7 price limit) from Reaper, Zombiesmith, Irregular Miniatures (Spaceships), Ground Zero Games, Studio Bergstrom or or Brigade Models, in addition I will name a Starship (or Starship class), star system/planet or a Starbase after them in my campaign universe. I will also draw out a Second and a Third Place name, these individuals will receive Honorary mention on the new Blog, and also have a Starship or Starbase named after them (they get to chose).
The 6 Mini manufacturers should give the winner a decent choice between Starships or regular (25/28mm) miniatures., as Reaper, GZGs, Zombiesmith and Irregular all have 25/28mm minis, where as Irregular, GZGs Bergstrom and Brigade all have Starship minis.
Update: If you suggest a name keep it clean, ie when abbreviated it cant spell out words like C.R.A.P. or D.A.M.N. or S.H.I.T., etc...
Zabadak- I may still use your initial suggestion as the name for a faction of bad guys. If I do you will be getting honorary mention and one of their ships named ofter you, along with maybe one of thier planets.
