GZG-ECC V Miniatures Contest Guidelines & Rules
There are 4 categories which you may submit miniatures in:
Note: miniatures submitted for the contest do not have to be
GZG-specific miniatures. If you have a WH40K mini you think is just
absolutely killer, submit it for the 25mm Scale category. If you
have a home-grown starship you use for Full Thrust that you think
is just awesome, submit it for the Full Thrust/Starship category.
- Full Thrust/Starship Scale
- DirtSide II/Epic Scale
- Stargrunt II / 25mm Scale
- Stargrunt II / 15mm Scale
You may submit upwards of two (2) entries per category (ie, you can
potentially submit a total of 8 entries to the contest). Your submissions
should be given to Mark 'Indy' Kochte on Saturday morning.
Now you can have a group of minis (such as a squad of SGII soldiers,
or a platoon of DSII-scale tanks) submitted as one entry. But they will
only count as one entry. A squad of SGII-scale infantry and an APC of the
same scale will count as 2 entries.
Unless you know the miniatures personally, it is unlikely you will know
whose mini is whose (unless they tell you ;). You will vote in accordance
to an identification tag associated with the mini in question. You may make
up to 2 votes per category.
YOU will be the judges for the miniatures contest! The miniatures will be
placed out on display at the end of the morning gaming session, and will remain
out until the start of the evening gaming session. At that point the judging
will be closed and prizes awarded to the best and second best of each category.
Should there be a tie, a revote will be called for, to be made by the available
members of the con who are present at that moment. Mark 'Indy' Kochte will
abstain from this second vote. If there should be a second tie, his will be the
You will be able to reclaim your entries during the saturday evening game
session. See Mark to recover your forces.
Winners will be required after the judging for a quick photo-session. :-)
Questions can be sent to Mark Kochte
GZG-ECC V Painting Workshop
Run by Stuart Murrary
Painting for the beginner, and not so beginner, wargamer. I will
cover the important aspects of painting neat, presentable miniatures.
The idea is not to go out and win a 'Golden Demon' but to help you
to improve your own talents and skills so you both enjoy painting
and are happy with your results. I will cover basics ranging from
Brushes and paint types through shading and highlighting to varnishing
and basing finished figures.
IMPORTANT: BRING YOUR OWN BRUSHES, and paint. The brushes you will
see why, the paint as its best to either stick with the media
you are happy with, or, so I can give advice/help on paint selections.
Bring one or two figures, either primed or base coated.
