March 04, 2022 2 min read

2022 Painting Competitions are back on normal schedule, Ourmada Crew! For the next several months, announcements will go up on the 4th of the month with models due on the 28th. 

Sticking with the theme we picked for this year of "Everyone paints the same figure", this month we are going with the thematically accurate Finn Greenwell, Leprechaun figure .

Finn Greenwell, Leprechaun 

How to participate

Getting in on this competition is super easy. Just stop by the store, pick up 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 March 28th. Judging will take place from March 28th to 31st. Figures can be picked up from the store after March 31st
Pictures of all submitted models will be posted to our Facebook Page on March 29th. 

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 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 models submitted.

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) A Leprechaun in March, isn't that a little typical?
Yes it is. Unfortunately we did not think of some of other options in time to get the models in. But we will do better in future months. April is going to be awesome!
