Today Andrew, Jake, Ian, and Rob all get together in a jam packed episode which they discuss both the End Times Fluff (Chapters 1-3) and comp in tournaments both in the US and overseas. This discussion happens as Andrew and Jake prepare to go to LGF. Will Andrew drop another tournament? You’ll have to listen to next episode to find out!!!
Today Rob Phaneuf gives us his thoughts on Tournament Paing Judging.
Paint Scoring Make sure you understand the difference between Best Painted (technail ability used to paint the army) and Best Appearance (painting, scupting, conversion, etc) and Best Army (same as appearance except addes in comp and theme). Rubric – Should include objective and subjective scoring. Rock Wars 30 Objective 20 Subjective – 45 Max. Remaining 5 points were for top 5. Prefer to have favorite army votes effect the paint score. Make sure you have enough spread. At Rock Wars there was not enough spread. For example Nick and My armies were seperated by 4 points. 43 to 39. Paint Judges – How Many? Single provides consistency but increases the effect of potential bias (both good and bad). More is better (if they all judge all the armies) as it lowers bias, increases the depth of knowledge (it’s possible to have a judge not know the army very well and not tell what’s converted). Creditinals? Got have the cred. Johnny Hastings – no problem. Joe Blow from Saskataoon I’m not so sure about. They need to understand the difference betweent he techniques (blending versus layering) and be able to spot it. Time – TAKE THE TIME TO JUDGE THE ARMIES SETUP FOR DISPLAY. Also, give the top 10 a nod and put the best armies on parade!
