Reaper's Official Position on Paint and Proxy

21 posts in this topic

1) Official models that are unpainted, primed, or painted a single color are acceptable and allowed for use in any official event.

2) Substitute models from outside manufacturers are not acceptable and are not allowed for use in any official event.

3) Generic substitutions from any Reaper lines are allowed for use as Non-Unique models in any official event.

4) A particular generic substitute model type can only be used to represent a single type of model and/or data card in any official event.

5) A generic substitute model must be on the same size base the model it is substituting for would be on in any official event.

You know what I'd like to see? If you don't own it, you can't use it. Simple as that.

But that is kinda hard to do with CAV when 1/3 of the models have not even been made yet...

Correction. Only 13%, or about 1/7 of the models haven't been made yet. Only 17 out of 128.

That's the kind of rule that makes people hate some game companies. Reaper is well loved partly b/c of their willingness to not be use-our-miniatures-nazis.

 

Besides, since the only official tournaments are the two big ones at GenCon and Origins (heck, the CAV one didn't even happen last year) and the RCON tournaments, its not really a huge issue for most situations.

Besides, gasoline costs too much to send the Deathseekers to every con and tournament to ensure enforcement of such a rule.

Someone asked on Mil-Net if round bases were OK. We initially said yes, but not at official events, but this rule kinda makes the rules fuzzy. It never states a base for a proxy model has to be the same shape, only the same size. So could this be extended to using different bases on legal CAV models? Would a round base be acceptable in an official CAV tournament?

Since there are rules already in place for non-based Models, I would just treat the round base as a non-based model, using the edge of the round base as the edge of the Model personally.

I'm not worried about BL or pick-up games, I'd resolve them the way you mentioned. I want to know about the official tournaments so that when the question arrises, it can be answered correctly.

The only real problem with that is that Reaper doesn't make round bases. Therefore I'd be worried that you'd fall under the 'from another company' restriction. I know a base really isn't a mini but if we are going for clarifiaction I'd like to be certain.

So, how much leeway is there for kitbashing existing CAVs? Say I don't like a model, so I go and build my own version?

I realise that this post is a tad old but were all the Published CAV's and Vehicles actually made? I've been through the JOR's and they all seem to be there physically...
