Hello! I have a question on the upcoming ReaperCon this year. For the Master series paint open contest rules on the page https://reapercon.com/contestI could not find anything regarding personally designed Models that an artist 3D prints and then paints.
for use as an example:
That is my first attempt at a model I personally designed in Blender, and then printed, in the style of warhammer 40k, though as a mention I really like the look of the grav-flux bombard from forgeworld so I created a very close facsimile of it for my model.
Under the rules I'm seeing I'm assuming that in the Painters Division it would not matter if it is 3D printed given the source of the model is not given consideration, just the prep and painting quality.
However I'm curious what, if any, the ruling on 3D designed and printed models are in the Open Division. Given the rules and the scoring system, sculpted models are judged by design originality, creativity, difficulty, etc, would a custom designed 3D printed model enjoy the same criteria for judging, or would it even be welcome in this division? Arguably this could extend to the diorama and vehicle division as well given the criteria in those.
I would like to argue that 3D designed and printed models should be welcome in any division; my design time alone for the model I gave as an example was clocked at 60+ hours. And while my tools and medium are different than a clay or greenstuff sculptor, I don't put any less passion or hard work into it.

And of course, since Morihalda is going to paint up the House Procrastius Version, I decided that House Tabletop needs one as well....
(Glad I ordered 2 of them!)
So here he is after the emblem was sculpted on the shield...
Much easier than sculpting hands!
Need to touch up the grey liner, then give him a coat of white primer tomorrow....
So my entry into the Sir Forscale Painting Competition started By my Housemaster, the Great Kaiju, Reaperbryan, is finished....
(well I need to spray the banner with Dullcote,...)
I decided to use Reaper's colors of Red, Green, and Black, but the Black metal of his plate kind of disappeared under the high lights...
It is a hair shy of 3" to the tip of his Pike, and it is 1" to the bottom of his pike hand...
As the metal pike made him a bit front heavy, I expanded the front of his base with a 50% mix of Green Stuff and Apoxie Sculpt...
Hope you all like him!
So Since Bryan decided to hold a contest, I decided to join in!
I decided when I heard about this, and the stipulations of the contest, I knew that I was going to steal an Idea that I have seen here on the forums....
Someone had taken an older pikeman figure, and painted bands 1/4" apart on the pikeshaft, to use him For Scale!
I saw this before I knew who / what Sir Forscale was / is, so the thought stuck with me.
So I removed his sword, and added a pike from a Ral Partha Wood Elf Pikeman from back when....
Reaper Brush on Primer on the Pike, as it is metal, then everything was airbrushed with thinned Grey Liner...
His Chainmail is Decayed Metal, going up to Brass, and he will be painted in Reaper's colors of Red, Green, and Black.
The pike will be marked in some way to indicate specific measurements, and I plan to try a Banner to fly from it as well...
I am a little worried about how to make sure he stands up, as the pike is a tad bit unbalancing...
First cut pics....
Thanks for looking!
So my 6 year old daughter is nearly done with her entry. I wanted to find out more about what all needs to be done so she can get it into the contest. From what I understand she needs to be there at the time, correct? Award ceremony is on Saturday at 8?
I am trying to get things hammered down so I can make plans with wife because she will probably be bringing her up to the event when needed since I may already be up there taking classes and just hanging out.
So far I am loving what she has done and have only pointed out things for her to fix up and she has done all the work except the super glue. I am going to try and find a way for her to do the gore effects she wants so that all i do is mix up the components and then she can place them wherever....if that is possible with this sticky stuff she won in last years auction.
