[EDIT] Details on MOAB (First weekend in October) can be found here: http://www.sutherlandshiregamers.org/MOAB-Events/

Hi everyone,

Below are the details we have sent over to the MOAB team for the 2016 painting comp. We are just waiting for them to be added to the website, but I thought it would be a good idea to get this posted here so that people can get a start. If there are any changes to the details, they will be posted in this thread.



Entering
The registration and schedule is as follows:
This contest will accept postal entries. Please contact Nick (turelio2011@gmail.com or “Turelio” on OzPainters) to arrange transportation of your entry to the venue if you cannot personally attend.
Entries may be registered on site at the painting competition table on Saturday at MOAB. Entries will not be accepted after 5pm on Saturday.
Entries are to be held for general display, photography and judging after registration at the painting competition area.
Winning figures will be announced on Sunday afternoon, approximately 2pm.
Unless prior arrangement are made with competition staff, all entries must be collected from 4pm Sunday, to 3pm Monday. Feedback will also be available on request at pickup, time pending.
Entries not picked up before 3pm Monday will be posted back at the entrant’s expense.
A ticket will be issued to all entrants when registering entries. Please retain these to claim your models afterwards.
Photos of entries will be posted online on OzPainters at a later date.

Cost
The cost of entry is $5 per entry, up to a maximum $20 (you can enter as much as you want,
past the cost of the initial 4 entries).

Free Entry for Players Registered with a Tournament
This year, we will allow one free entry to any category for anyone registered with a
tournament.

Entries still must be registered as per the above procedure, with the cost of entry waived for one entry.
Proof of tournament registration may be required.
The entry does not have to be from the army or system you are using in the tournament.
A full list of tournaments can be found on the MOAB website.
Please note that entries cannot be judged and returned in between tournament rounds.

Models required for use in tournaments should not be entered, as they may not be able to
be returned in time for games.
We will award a prize (Best Tournament Player Painting Entry) to an entry entered this way to
encourage tournament players to enter the competition. The trophy/certificate will only be awarded if we receive sufficient (more than 5) entries.

Categories
Any entry may be moved to a more appropriate category at the judge’s discretion.
Entrants may enter up to two entries per category.
If an entrant has two entries in a category, the judges will pick the best entry out of the two for placing considerations. This is to avoid the same person winning multiple placings in a category.
All judges decisions are final, and correspondence will not be entered into.
Judges may add further categories on the day if there are enough entries to warrant them (eg. Best of manufacturer)
You agree to allow for photography of your entries for display, promotional, and commercial use.
You agree to allow your name to be published alongside you work, and as an entrant to the competition.

Categories
There are four categories this year:
• Single miniature
• Large Model
• Group
• Small Scale (15mm and under) Unit

Single Miniature
Single miniatures that fit on a base size no bigger than 40mm square or round.
If mounted directly on a display plinth, then the cross sectional area of the plinth must be no bigger than 40mm in any dimension
Single miniatures must be roughly the size of a 30mm humanoid or smaller.
Single miniatures may be mounted as long as they fit within the base size restrictions.
Total height of miniature and base or plinth must be no taller than 100mm, including plinth.

Large Model
This category is open to single large models.
Models must be larger than a standard 30mm tall humanoid and may be mounted.
Total height of miniature and base or plinth must be no taller than 200mm.
This category will also include vehicles and busts.

Group
This category consists of a collection of 3-5 single models that form a cohesive group.
This category will also include war machines with crew.
Units can be a mix of single and large models as appropriate.
Handling trays are allowed, provided that they are of an appropriate size, however only the models will be judging. Scenic elements of a handling tray will not influence the judging.
Also note that entries do not have to be ‘game legal’, just present as a cohesive looking group.

Small Scale Group
This category consists of a collection of 3-5 stands of models that form a cohesive group
Models entered in this category should be 15mm scale or smaller
This category will also include vehicle squads of the same scale, in which case 3-5 vehicles should be entered
Handling trays are preferred for this category, but not necessary.

Judging
Trophies/Certificates will be awarded to first, second and third place entries in each of the above
categories.

Postal Entries
Postal entries are allowed if you are unable to make it to the event itself. This should be arranged prior to the event by contacting Nick as per the above details. In this situation, entries should preferably arrive the weekend before the competition at the latest so that is there is a delay in posting, they still have time to arrive.

Please note that the organisers of the competition will not take responsibility for any damage incurred by postal entries in shipping to or from the event. Models will be displayed and judged ‘as received’, and packaged and returned in as close as possible condition to that which they were received in. Cost of transporting the entry to and from the competition is the responsibility of the entrant.

Some Hints from the Judges
We thought it would be helpful to let you know some of the things the judge(s) look out for
while judging that could potentially make your entry a winner.

Neatness is a key to a winning mini. Before you worry about detailed shading and highlighting, a neat presentation always stands out. Check for paint strokes that have wandered onto another area.
Glue your models together, use pins if it needs it. You may think judges want to see the underside of that miniature sitting on a throne, but if it falls on the ground when we pick up
the mini neither you or the judge will be happy. Judges always pick up models to look at them from every direction, ensure your models stay in one piece.
Remove mold lines and drill out barrels. That time spent preparing really shows in the finished model. It can be a decider between two entries vying for a winning place - one that has mold lines marring a fine paint job will be edged out.
A nice base goes a long way - although there are restrictions on base sizes, this does not mean you cannot be creative.
Doing something that helps show off the miniature and put it in context will make it stand out and catch the judges' eyes.
