wildbill Posted May 24, 2010 Share Posted May 24, 2010 I have zero mod status, but based upon the sub-topic in the ReaperCon Warlord thread, I started this one so people could wax philosophic about a painted army requirement in tournament. Since I'm kicking off this here shindig, I guess I'll spit out my two cents. I own 3 armies right now: Dwarves, Darkspawn and Razig. The first two are painted. The third is partially. I'm not a painter. I could care less about painting. I pay people to paint my armies. I doubt my Razig army will ever get finished since I never field them anywhere outside of my house, and usually they are used as proxies for something else. I don't want to see Reaper become like GW in that they require people to have painted armies. You can't go to a Rogue Trader or Grand Tournament without a painted army. Period. You will lose points from your total and thus won't win any prize at all. So why bother playing? Now, if you want to include a best painted army prize that is really fabulous (like a set of paints or something), then that is motivation for people to paint their army as fabulous as they can. But, I want to see the option stay open that allows me to show up on Friday (or even Saturday morning!), purchase a brand spanking new army, glue it together and then play it in the tournament. I shouldn't get docked points because I chose to spend $100-200 dollars on minis for a new army. Anyways, like I said, my two cents.
