Arc40K : A missive from the Painting judges
Arc 40k rapidly approaches, and many of you will be enthusiastically / desperately trying to get your awesome armies finished.

Just a few things to keep in mind.

All models must be painted to a minimum standard. The old adage of 'four colour minimum' gets bandied about a bit, which as a guideline is more or less true. However, this means that there should be paint applied to various parts of the model in a sensible and believable manner. Please don't throw random colours on an undercoated miniature and think it will do. It won't. If your model has a face, paint the face.

Similarly, bases should have some effort put in. A plain base with some random paint splotches is NOT adequate. It's not a difficult or time-consuming job to put some flock on a base.

IF you plan on using Malefic powers to summon models, they must also be painted to at least the standard of the rest of the army, and must properly represent the models being summoned. Likewise with Tervigons and their spawned jerks.

If you plan to use scratchbuilds or heavily converted models in your army, they should approved by the TO’s first. This is mostly to avoid confusion on behalf of your opponents, it is also to avoid cheap "bog-roll and bendy straws I couldn't afford the right model" syndrome.

Models that do not conform to the above expectations will not be used. Please, don't make us the Bad Guys.

Oh. IMPORTANT ADDENDUM: Bases. Small, tranparent flying bases MAY be left unpainted. but We would prefer they weren't. Big oval flyer bases ARE to be painted. (Somebody one year told be that it was a flying base, and you don't paint those... They were incorrect.)

Anyhoo, Questions should be presented here.
