Entry Subject: Any unpainted goblin mini from WizKids, Steamforged Games, Archon Studio, or Reaper. Products from other companies must be 28mm-32mm scale and have the company name in the description and we reserve the right to disqualify entries we can’t verify are unpainted and the right scale.

Entry Requirements:

      1. Your submission must include before and after photos of the mini unpainted and painted, with you or a physical label of some sort listing your verifiable preferred social media handle in both pictures. You may check “Don’t publish photos of me” to request we not publish those photos.
      2. You may submit up to 8 additional photos showing your mini from different angles and/or in a diorama with other minis, terrain and props. You must submit at least 1 additional photo if you requested we not publish the photos in requirement (1).

      4. See Full Rules for additional details.

Judging:

      1. Overall Painting placement will be awarded based solely on the painting quality with scores broken down for 50% painting skill, 20% creativity, 20% difficulty of the paint scheme attempted, and 10% presentation (photo quality, angles to show all of the mini, good neutral lighting, etc.)
      2. Themed category awards are based on the “Harrowing Holidays” theme. The theme is deliberately open to interpretation.
