    WAMP2012 Categories

    It gives me great pleasure to finally announce the categories and judges for WAMP2012.

    Following feedback from last years inaugural event the categories have remained almost the same.

    We will be hosting the following categories:

    • Single Figure
    • Monster/Vehicle
    • Group
    • Large Scale/Busts
    • Diorama/Duel


    In addition to these there will be:

    The Peoples Choice Award - voted for by the public, in addition to other awards.
    Best Banelegions/Banebeast - this is in addition to other awards.

    We will also have an overall Best in Show chosen from the category winners.

    Category Descriptions:

    Category 1 .Single miniature

    This category is open to any single miniature up to 54mm scale. Any manufacturer, any genre including non-monstrous mounted models . mounted on a suitable sized base. (see base size ruling)

    Category 2 .. Monster and vehicle.
    This category is for the larger sized models and vehicles . Any manufacturer, any genre. Models mounted on monsters are to be entered in this category . If models are mounted on bases they should be of an appropriate size

    Category 3 Group
    This category is for groups of 5 or more miniatures. Any manufacturer, any genre . models DO NOT need to be gaming legal as judges will be basing marks on paint and modelling alone.
    All models need to be mounted on appropriate sized bases. (see base size ruling )

    Category 4 Large scale/Bust
    This category is open to larger scale models and busts 54mm and upwards from any genre, any manufacturer.
    Models should be mounted on appropriate sized bases if appropriate.

    Category 5 diorama / duel
    This category is for dioramas vignettes and duels. The models entered can be from any manufacturer and judges will be looking for a strong story element capturing a moment with clever usage of models and scenery.

    A note on base sizes
    The term appropriate base size has been used throughout the category notes . There are no hard and fast rules regarding the size of base used and no model will be disqualified due to base size in any category . It is worth noting in all cases though that the emphasis of the judging will be on the painting of the model itself and base and presentation will account for a small percentage of total marks .


    General Guideline:
    There are no restrictions on manufacturer, genre or scale unless applied to a specific category.
    You may enter as many times as you like in each category
    You will only be eligible for 1 prize per category (though you may receive as many judging awards as you achieve a mark for)
    The Peoples Choice and Banebeasts/BaneLegions awards are given in addition to all other prizes and awards.
    You must enter your pieces in person.
    You may not enter pieces that have previously won at WAMP2011
    The event opens at 11am. Deadline for entries is 12 noon.

    The Judges:

    We have pulled together a brilliant judging line up for. they bring a wealth of experience to the table and will be invaluable in giving your pieces great critique and assessment.

    There will also be prizes awarded for the Best Banelgions/Banebeasts winner.
