Details

Date: 8th July 2023 (Saturday)

Time: 12pm – 11pm

Fee: $30 / pax

Notes:

  • We are providing paints, water, brushes, and palettes is an excellent way to ensure that all participants have the materials they need to paint their miniatures.
  • Participants are encouraged to bring their own brushes. When it comes to brushes, it’s a good idea to have a variety of sizes and shapes available, as different brushes are better suited for different tasks. For example, a small brush is ideal for painting details, while a larger brush is better for applying base coats.

 

RULES AND REGULATIONS

Winning Conditions: Paint the most miniatures within the time frame, following the Judging Criteria.

Time Limit: The painting marathon will commence at 2pm and will end at 11pm. You may start at any time within this period. The hours you clock will factor in the points you are collecting.

Miniature Selection: 15mm – 40mm miniatures are recommended and they are baseline for scoring. Larger minis are also welcomed!

Bring your own Miniatures: All miniatures declared for painting must be unpainted in the original plastic form. You are encouraged to assemble them beforehand.

Submission Requirements: You must continue painting until the end of the marathon (10pm). Should you run out of minis to paint, you have two options:

  • we will assign you store minis to act as a buffer (note: you cannot bring back store minis)
  • Buy miniatures at the store (at attractive discounts).
