2. Battle against other painted armies.
Each player spends lots of time painting and converting his models to make the army look good. Part of the fun of going to gaming events is checking out other player’s armies, picking up painting and converting tips, and, of course, showing off your army. Players who field a whole army of unpainted models are not only missing out on a large part of the hobby but are also taking some of the fun out of it for other players.
A three color minimum, and based or painted bases will be required to play in the Final.
A majority of the regional tournaments already require some sort of minimal painting present on all the models in your army. Those players that frequent the regional events will not likely need to read on, but a once over is still encouraged. So for the rest of us, lets discuss what makes up the minimum.
I could ask to have everyone submit pictures of their models before hand (and anyone that is unsure is more than welcome to do just that), but I don’t believe that is truly a reasonable request. So make sure you meet the requirements, and here are some examples on this link.
Score Sheet and tweaks.
I came to realize the other day that not everyone was using the score sheet to set up their games. I encourage you to use it so that you won’t be caught off guard. The Score sheet has things related to objective placement and restrictions, Relic rules and exemptions, and other great notes that could effect you army list or strategic goals. So check it out here -> LINK
