paintminion Posted December 8, 2008 Share Posted December 8, 2008 Glad it's helping! I'm trying to bring all aspects of my open System experience into this and hopefully you guys will benefit by understanding better what you want to enter and where you want to enter it. Remember that you are not entering individual models, you are setting up a display of your best work...whatever is ready for display. You get one award per category. So say that I'm entering my 18" garage kit Cylene, my Angel of Radiance (oops, gotta ask Anne about that), a Dark Sword dragon, a Privateer press puppy battlegroup, and a few female warroris. All of them, stock figures, are going into one display of my stuff for the Painters Category. Judges will decide my best piece, I'll be judged, get my award if merited by my scores, and that's that. Now, will people paint up large figures? Well....why were they painting Large Figures before? Only because of a category?! Painting Units only because of a category?! I would hope it's more than that! But MMSI is primarily larger figures to begin with - they are not gamers but artists of museum quality miniatures...54 is their base size really with 72s and 90s and busts. To them, our little people are so small they'd go bonkers trying to paint them--and yet some still do...size doesn't matter. ;-) So what will happen here in our gamer convention competition? I honestly don't know, but I would expect people to still paint what they love and want to show it off. How many whole armies did people paint for the painting competition? You can still paint your unit and put it in your display, and maybe the judges will choose your "group" as your best painted pieces, or just the unit leader or warcaster, or whatever. Gus, I wouldn't fret over it, but get working on what YOU love and want to get painted. Then bring it and show it off. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
