2021 January Painting Competition - Lovers Duo

January 06, 2021 2 min read

Valentine's Day is approaching, #Ourmada fans, and we are theming our next painting competition to the holiday of romance and partnership.

To that theme, each participant will be submitting two figures of their choice from the entire WizKids and Reaper line.
The only limitations to the choices are:
1) There must be 2 figures on the same base. We do have large bases available, but they are not required. Anything can work as a base, even a rock. 
2) The figures must be humanoid or mostly so... Centaurs are ok, horses are not. Humanoid monsters, such as Mind Flayers or Vampires, are also perfectly fine. 
There is a new component to this competition, vs the prior ones: the Base. Both figures must be based together. As such, the base is going to be judged along with the models for this competition. 
Whether you use a GW or Reaper base, a piece of bark, or a rock is all up to you. Making the base and the models fit together is part of the fun. 

How to participate

Getting in on this competition is super easy. Just stop by the store, pick out your two figures, and pay $2 to sign up. Then you paint up your figure however you wish and bring the finished figure back to the store by February 10th. Judging will take place from February 11th to 13th. Figures can be picked up from the store after February 15th. 
Pictures of all submitted models will be posted to our Facebook Page on February 11th.

Who is judging?

Michael & Aaron will be the final arbiters!


1) Can I purchase multiple figures for testing?
Absolutely you can. However, you can only submit a single base with two figures for the Competition. 

2) Is modification of the figures allowed? 
Absolutely. These are your figures, go wild if you wish, but don't get so elaborate that you cannot finish the figure in time. 

3) Are there prizes?
Yes there are. 100% of the entry fee and a portion of the model price will be split up among the finalists, as decided by Michael and Aaron. Generally we split the pool evenly among the top 3rd of the entries. 

4) I want to show off my figure early, where can I post pictures
Join us over on our Discord Channel and post pictures in the Monthly Painting Competition.

5) Can I modify the figure or add elements to it? 
Let's take a page from Bob Ross, "It's your model, you're the creator." Base it, modify it, customize it however you wish. You do not have to customize the model and not modifying it will not disqualify your figure from top standings. 

6) Will there be more of these?
That is the plan. We may skip months occasionally, but plan to have painting competitions frequently.

7) I am not good at painting, should I participate? 
Painting is a hobby and an acquired skill. The more you paint, the better you will become. If you would like constructive feedback on your figure, please just ask. We would be happy to assist you!

8) I want help pulling off an effect or technique. How can I get tips?
Join us on our Discord Channel and we would be happy to help.
