Game Empire San Diego Painting Tournament

Recommended Posts

I'm so excited to share this news:

 

Game Empire Painting Tournament

March 25, 2012, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

 

7051 Clairemont Mesa Blvd, #306

San Diego, CA 92117

858-576-1525

Cost: FREE!!!!!

 

 

Prize pool includes store credit, brushes from Army Painter, cool stuff from Games Workshop, Reaper minis, and more!

 

Basic supplies, minis, basing materials, and drinks will be free to participants.

 

Da Roolz:

Minis from any company, current or defunct, are acceptable. Mini must be primed and assembled when registered. (This rule can be bent, but will waste your precious painting time.) Primed and assembled minis will be made available in the “up to 28 mm categories”, while supplies last.

Pre-painted minis not accepted for this tournament. Please register with a monitor before beginning to apply color. We will number the bottom of your mini.

 

Use your stuff, use stuff from the supplies. It’s all good. Seasoned pros are likely to have their own supplies and should leave the communal supplies for the amateurs. We’re not sticklers, it’s just good manners.

 

Don’t be a jerk. If you’re nasty to the other competitors, you may be asked to leave. Even young’uns are expected to have good manners.

 

Basing: (That means adding cool stuff, like rocks and sticks to the floor of your mini.) This isn’t necessary, but highly encouraged. And it sure makes your mini look awesome…

 

Due to their overwhelming awesomeness, Game Empire employees are not allowed to enter this contest. Too bad you rock.

 

Categories:

Young Bloods: up to and including age 14—must have ID or a guardian to verify age. No professionals. Prizes awarded to first, second, and third places. (all sizes)

 

Pro: If you have ever been paid to paint minis, this is your category. Two size categories: a.) up to 28mm, and b.) over 28mm. Yes, Virginia, there are professionals under age 15. Get over it. They might just kick your hiney.

 

Amateur: No professionals. Two size categories: a.) up to 28mm, and b.) over 28mm. (If you have ever been paid to paint minis, enter in the pro category. We expect you to be honest about this.)

 

People’s Choice: All entries from other categories may be submitted. Anyone may enter. This is a special award judged by the public.

 

 

 

Schedule

Registration is all day, beginning at 10 a.m. Please register all minis and hang on to the claim ticket we give you!

4:45 p.m. All entries must be completed and ready for judging.

5 p.m. Judging begins. You need not be present to win… but your mini does!

 

Minis will then be placed in our chess case for People’s Choice Award. This will be voted on by the public (one vote per person—duh!) over the next week (March 25-31) and tallied April 2. Winners will be announced April 2. (Yes, you can vote for your own mini. Yes, kids can vote too—it ain’t the presidency.)

 

Our fabulous Judges: 2012 Broadside Bash Award-winning Allan Pyle Golden Demon award-winner Bob Felix. (Subject to availability, but it looks good!)

Judges’ decisions are final. These guys are pros and know what they’re looking for. The judges reserve the right to move an entry into a different category if they deem it appropriate.

 

COA Clause: Once in our care, we will take special care of your minis, but we can accept no responsibility for loss or damage to individual entries. Models are entered into the competition at the artist’s own risk. If they come alive and fly around the store, we’ll talk later.

 

Rules lawyers should talk to Desiree about rule changes BEFORE the tournament. Suggestions about future tournaments will be given consideration. This is Desiree’s first shot at it, so give her a break.

 

If this topic should be moved to a different forum, no prob. This was my best guess!

      Good morning guys! 
       
      Q: if buying one of the reaper core sets (108 bottle set), what's the main difference in them? 
       
      I'm looking into buying a complete paint set. I've been doing a ton of research and have settled on a reaper core set (i already own several reaper paints and love them).  I know that everyone suggests a blend of several companies based on which has the best,  e.g. yellow,  or metallics. I just want to make it simple, buy a set and build from there. 
       
      I'll mostly be painting 40k and privateer press models with some terrain and 3d prints mixed in (i have a cheapo set of acrylics from Michael's for large terrain and 3d prints).
       
      I've also considered the Vallejo Model set, and Army Painter Mega Set.
       
      Thanks in advance!

      I put two entries into the recent Reaper Facebook Convert and Paint contest. This first one didn't get many votes, which doesn't surprise me as I think not too many people knew what it was and it was on the weirder side. Plus the paint job itself was kind of bland.  But I like the idea of it because of what it is. It is a tikbalang - a malevolent, mythical Filipino creature that leads travelers astray or plays tricks on them. It has a horse's head, a bony body, and long, disproportioned limbs.
       
      I used these minis to make it.  The wendigo's head was chopped off.  Then I took the head of the Silverhorn, removed the horn and did some filing and sculpting to get it to join properly to the body of the wendigo. Very minimal green stuff use outside of filling seams; I filled in the wendigo's hooves, which were cloven, and rebuilt a bit of the mane so it joined smoothly with the rest of the body. 
       

       
      And I saved the body of the unicorn.  At some point I'll have to convert it into a centaur!

      A noobish question, should I thin down reaper washes? Or are they ready to use out of the dropper? 
      Sorry if this has been asked.
