Intro:
       Welcome to the Reaper Challenge League (RCL), a system that rewards fans for completing community-based events and challenges. This will all be conducted via the Reaper Miniatures Discord, where there is a system in place to track points and administer raffles easily (see below).

THIS IS NOT A CONTEST ----- This is meant to be a challenge against yourself to see what you can accomplish, not a contest to compete in against other people in the community. So enjoy your time in creating stuff and have fun doing it with everyone else!

Only Reaper minis will be accepted except for in the Freebie/Bust categories. You can use any paints for submissions, the only exception is the Limited Palette challenge.


How It Works:

  •  Users can submit photos of RCL projects on the #submissions area on Discord and receive points depending on the tier of challenge.
    These points can then in turn be used to purchase raffle tickets which will be drawn quarterly, with a large annual raffle at the end of the year.
  • Only Reaper minis will be accepted for submissions, except for in the Freebie/Bust categories.
  • You can use any paints for submissions, the only exception is the Limited Palette challenge.
  • Each quarter, a RCL raffle shall be held during the last seven days. This ensures that people have ample time to enter tickets or finish any entries so your points may be exchanged into tickets. On the last day of the quarter, the raffle will be drawn, and winners posted.
  • At the end of the year a larger raffle will occur that accounts all accrued points points you have earned yearly (spent and unspent). 
  • Terms and Conditions may change at the discretion of Reaper Miniatures at any time.



Type of Challenges:
 
 All entries must show some sign of trying and not just throwing paint on to get some quick points. In keeping of the spirit of the league, challenge yourself and see what you and others are capable of. The amount of points that each one challenge will grant are in the () below, as well on the PDF for the 2021 chart. Reaper Challenge League PDF
 

  • Monthly - These are challenges that can be completed each month and will reset on the 1st of each month. 

    • Rotating Themes (3)  - Each month will have a new theme ( EX: angels/demon. living/undead.)

    • Limited Palette (4) - Each month will have three different colors limited palette, reaper paints only, black or white are allowed with your three other colors. Example: Blue/red/green You must choose a shade of each one, for instance Clear blue/Brick Red/Forest Green = those are your three colors for that month. 

    • Player character (3) - Any PC type model.

    • Monster (3) - Any monster type model.

    • Duo’s (7) - You and one other person get the same model and paint it together, submit both at the same time.

    • Trio’s (10)-  You and 2 others paint the same model, submit all at the same time. The best way to submit these would be giving the pictures of the models to one person so submit, tagging their partners. 

    • Recent New Release (4) - New release model from the the current month or past two months! 

    • Freebie/ Shelf of shame (1) - Any model. (even Non-Reaper)
       

  • Quarterly - Can be turned in once each quarter, and will reset after the raffle has been pulled for the previous raffle.

    • Diorama (15) - Medium/large decorated base, 2+ models that tells a story.

    • Large model (10) - 3”+ base. Think giants and dragons. There are many definitions of “Large” models, This is a loose characterization of this.

    • Group 4+ (15) - You and at least 3 others, paint different models, get together and decide a time to submit these models together! The best way to submit these would be giving the pictures of the models to one person so submit, tagging their partners

    • Heavy Mod/ Conversion (10) - Sculpting additional parts, kit-bashing, ETC.

    • Seasonal models (9) - Any holiday that fits into this quarter. (EX: Thanksgiving, Christmas, Easter, your birthday, flag day, ETC)

    • Bust (8) - A sculptured representation of the upper part of the figure, especially a portrait sculpture showing only the head and shoulders of the subject. Again just like large models, this is subjective. Non-reaper models are allowed since we do not have a lot of bust at the moment.

    • Quarterly Contest Model. (10) - If you entered the quarterly contest, once voting it over for that, then you can submit it here as well for points. BUT only after voting is done.

 

  • Bi-yearly - Can be turned in once every 6 months.

    • Page-O-Rama (25) - Choose a quote or scene from a book, and recreate the scene in a diorama type display!

 

  • Yearly - A challenge that can be turned in once a year.

    • End of the year challenge (50) - Select a model that you have already painted this year and paint it again to compare the two, see how far you have come in your painting journey. It can be any Reaper Miniatures model that you already painted in 2021. Submit a side-by-side picture in December for credit. If you want to see more improvement, perhaps try one of your earliest minis from January! You will choose any Reaper model that you painted in 2021, and repaint another of the same model in December. It can be a previous RCL submission, or a separate model just for this challenge.

POP UPS! - 2nd Quarter 2021
There are some new Pop-Up challenges coming! Now for the rest of Q2 you can take part in these challenges.

"Polka Dots?" - 5 Points

Paint a model that has an element of dot pattern(s).
 

"Paint your Zodiac" - 7 points

Choose your sign and paint the particular mini that goes with it! We have a line called "Children of the Zodiac" - https://www.reapermini.com/search/children of the zodiac But it is not limited to those, just as a suggestion. For example: LEO - Could paint a lion, or maybe a knight with a Lion depiction on their shield.
 

"Bones, Bones, Bones" - 5 points

Anything containing bones! --- This is the object bone.. Not the material. This can be any material!


The Raffle:

     The raffle will happen the last 7 days of each quarter, This will ensure that people have ample time to enter their tickets or finish any entries they need to complete before drawings. Tickets will be pulled on the last day of each quarter!
    This will all be done on the Discord server, as we have a bot that is programmed to keep track of members points and how many tickets they have. We will use this bot to open the drawing and for you to enter and participate with the system. The drawing will stay open for one week before doing the drawing on the last day at a set time!

Thank you, the team!

Frequently asked questions
 

Q: I am just wondering if one model can be turned in for two different categories? 
A: In the spirit of the challenge, we would like it if you submitted a different model for another challenge. As this isn't a contest and meant to get people hobbying. :) so you would just be doing yourself a dissatisfaction!!!!!
 

Q:  Since the Reaper Discord moves so insanely fast, how will winners be notified? 
A:There will be a channel that is static that is read only, for raffle winner and other announcements. 
 

Q: Will the raffle draws be things that can survive through colder climates when shipped? 
A: Not to sure on the exact prizes but this ties into your third question, I can hold things for you if cold climate is an issue and ship it at an opportune time.
 

Q: For the Quarterly holiday - what are you looking for for Q1?  Like would just, any winter/snowy model be ok, or do I need to figure out what a MLK day themed model would be? ;P
A: The rules are very loose, as this is not a contest and is meant for you and others to hobby!!!!!! So if you think its a holiday or a special day? By all means paint something and present it under that challenge category, as long as you spent time and effort into making it, I will recognize it. As an example if you wanted to paint something that was for your birthday! i'll count that!

This looks very fun and a good way to keep me painting!

 

I am just wondering if one model can be turned in for two different categories?  i.e. if I paint Dance of Death for the fire and ice theme can I also turn it in for the Quarterly Large model category?


Also am I correct in that I can submit one non-Reaper bust per quarter?

Looking at the sections yes that would be correct, this is geared for people who dont have alot of time to just paint all the time, and for people who can paint all the time! at least I hope it is. and being able to save points will help if you have a slow quarter ETC.

I like the idea, although I'm curious about a few things:

- Since the Reaper Discord moves so insanely fast, how will winners be notified? 

- Will the raffle draws be things that can survive through colder climates when shipped? 

- if they are cold sensitive items (paint), and one wins, will there be options to have the item held until its warmer, or alternatively, have the option to pay for overnight shipping and insulated packaging?

@Reaper_Jon Will there be a monthly Forum Thread for questions on the monthly paint challenges.  I'm foreseeing lots of questions like

  • For the limited palette, can I mix my pink and blue to make another color, or do I need to stick to just the pure colors as is?
  • Is a Stone Lurker a PC?
  • Can you come to my house and walk my dog?

You know, important stuff.  ;)

How do we do the yearly 365 day model? Do we have to paint the initial mini in 2021 or do we take one we painted this year and then wait until it has been a year and paint it again in 2021?

 

Also, can we submit more than 1 in the same category, example 2 PC minis for 6 points or 2 dioramas for the quarterly for 30 points?
