Salty Dwarf Painting Competition!
Here are the details:
$5 Registration fee per entry
Note: This competition is open to all miniature model companies and ranges.
After some great questions brought up from the community we have decided to get a bit more specific with categorization and judging criteria.
People's Choice Awards and Top Merit Awards
Defined: Smaller figure or animal-mounted figure, such as a knight on a horse, which fall within the size restriction. This includes base, mount, and appendages. A competition judge will rule on any bits, such as a pole, extending beyond the size restriction, at time of entry.
Size Restriction: 3x3x3 inches, excluding base.
Defined as: Single Figures that are larger than Single Figure restrictions. Large monsters, dragons, statues, busts, etc.
Size Restriction: 6x6x6 inches, excluding base.
Huge Monster/Large Vehicle:
Defined as: All vehicles and machines with crew. This includes all tanks, ships, siege engines, all weaponry that contains or is run by one or more crew figures. Multiple freestanding figures (as in crew) must include unifying base, board, or movement tray.
Judging Criteria Defined:
Technical Ability/Execution- The technical proficiency used in the painting and modeling of the entry. Obvious technical faults are mold lines, sloppy joins, rough primer, and/or sloppy paint.
Artistic Quality- The artistic effects of the piece, including color choices, added detail work, pose, basing, cohesiveness, and the overall effectiveness of the artistic choices made.
