Warhammer 40k: New Edition, New Army Painting Challenge Runs June 12th to July 31st
In the grim darkness of the 3rd millennium, there are only stay at home orders. Working from home and social distancing has kept humanity from convening to play with their toys together. So, in order to overcome this, mankind has decided to hobby... Apart. Entry Fees
$5 for entering into only ONE category
$10 if you enter into MULTIPLE categories (This allows you to enter as many categories as you would like)
Prize Primary Categories
If you have any questions about which category the models you’re working on would qualify for, just ask Blaine Miller on the Facebook group.
Best “Hero” - Regular-sized single model unit. Cannot be basic troopers etc. Must be a HQ/Elite/etc.
Best Multi-Model Unit
NOTE: No models from one category can be used as part of an entry in one of the other categories (example: if you enter a veteran sergeant for the Best Hero, then it cannot be part of your entry for the Best Multi-Model Unit)
Prize Secondary Categories (if we get enough entry fees to support more prizes)
Best Overall (best among all 3 primary categories) - This will be a slight bump to the prize support for the best
We will do our best to keep the prize support breakdown updated throughout the event.
There will be a judging council that will judge the entries at the end of the event. We will try to make sure the judges are from outside the event and our local group. However, if any of the judges have entered in the competition, they cannot vote for their own entries for any reason.
We wanted to expand the bandwidth of this event without going too far from the 40k wheelhouse, so we will allow entry of anything meant for a Games Workshop game. We would PREFER that the models be GW-produced, but might be OK with third party models made to be used with GW games (Wargames Exclusive, etc.). Please speak with Blaine before beginning work on/entering a third party miniature, so we can be sure it’s acceptable for the event. 3D printed models will NOT be allowed.
Since we don’t want people entering models they painted years ago, we will require a minimum 3 photos be sent to Blaine for each entry
A selfie of yourself with the pre-painted/completed model you are entering (You and the sprues, you and the built model, you and the built/primed model) Note: it cannot be a photo of you and the box for the model.
A selfie of yourself and the completed and painted model.
Any number of photos of the completed and painted model
The first 2 images will just be used as proof that you built and completed this project. The image(s) for number 3 will be used for judging the entries.
You can enter at any time after this posting by signing up on the Atomic Empire site and sending Blaine the pic of you with the project(s) you’ll be working on. This will run until the end of July, so please be sure to have your entry photos sent to him by July 31st at midnight eastern or we won’t be able to accept your entry. Judging will take place the following week and prizes will be announced then.
