May's Painting Competition is the start of something awesome. For the next several months, we are going to be building the Perfect Party together. Each month will have a role, starting with May's role of 'The Tank', and no, I don't mean M1 Bradley.
The Tank is the member of the party who absorbs the hits for the others to do the work. Be it a Fighter or Paladin in full play, or a dodging, dipping, diving, ducking, and dodging monk, The Tank is the preferred focus for incoming attacks.
Sign ups start today, May 4th and models are due on May 28th.
Getting in on this competition is super easy. Just stop by the store, pick out your figure, 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 May 28th. Judging will take place from May 29th to June 1st. Figures can be picked up from the store after June 2nd.
Pictures of all submitted models will be posted to our Facebook Page on May 31st.
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 figure
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. Only the figure will be judged.
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.
9) Do I have to participate in all of the Perfect Party Competitions if I sign up?
Not at all. Join them as your time allows. We do encourage anyone who has time to participate.
