Flying Monkey Con Hobby Contest Policies and Rubric




Painting Policy
  • 3 Color Minimum & Based - The Flying Monkey GT maintains the policy that any model that is not painted to at least a 3 color minimum and based can and will be pulled from every game in which the model does not have the 3 color minimum rule. We realize this might seem harsh, but we feel like it is not in the spirit of the game to be played with models that do not have some level of effort put into painting the models. That said we will NOT pull models that we believe to be aesthetically unpleasing, everyone paints at different levels, all we ask is that you respect our wishes and feelings, and the feelings of your opponents who put a lot of care into the painting aspect of our hobby.
  • What is 3 color minimum & Based? It is not a couple of brush strokes on each model and calling it 3 colors. Each model in your army must show clear effort to attain 3 colors. Washes and dry brushing count towards one of your 3 colors. Basing can be any sort of gravel and flock glue to the bases of each of your armies models.

Painting Competitions 
  • At the Flying Monkey Con there will be 2 separate painting competitions. The first will be the singles painting competition, where individuals will compete model to model against other attendees. Categories and more details about the competition will be on page 2. The voting process will begin DAY 1 between rounds 1 and 2 of the AOS and 40k competitions.
  • The second competition will be the best painted army. Judging will be based on a rubric and then an average of the judges scores will be used to determine the overall paint score. The judging process will begin DAY 2 between rounds 1 and 2 of the AOS and 40k competitions. More details and our rubric will be on page 4.
  • PLEASE NOTE: COMMISSIONED WORKS ARE DISALLOWED this is a painting competition, it is unfair to other entrants to enter work that you have not personally done yourself. This is an HONOR SYSTEM – that means failure to adhere to this rule will result in sanctions. If you are found to have violated this rule at the current event or any previously attended event, ONE or MORE of the following may happen:
    • Disqualification from painting competition
    • Return of awards
    • Banning from next Flying Monkey Con painting competition (this would be the next one you would attend, not the next years)
    • Repeat offenses may result in permanent ban from painting competition and best army competitions
