Cool. Something to consider perhaps for the next time: It would be nice to have a category between single base and army for multi-stand units (e.g. Warmaster, Black Powder etc) or allow bigger multi-stand units in what is currently the single stand category. It seems to me, looking at a whole unit (rather than a single stand) is where 10mm stands out. On the other hand a unit will be "drowned out" in the army category.

started prep work on some entries last night. I think it will be a tough one the standard will be even higher this year.
Best of luck to all!

I'd second the vote for a unit class, Regiment, Brigade, etc of 20-50 figures since that is where 10mm truly shines.

That said I'll see if I can find a decent colour guard stand or two to submit.

Im about to embark on the fools mission of setting up Battle of the Auroch Hills with 10mm figures as well as building a scale model of the battleground. Maybe next year.

The unit category has been requested before, but we're wary of diluting the categories down too much.  And it means finding more companies to put in prizes as well!

A close look at last year's winners and you'll see entries with two bases rather than one and more than two images submitted so I imagine the judging is quite relaxed so long as entries stay within the figure numbers allowed.  Undecided  I wouldn't want folk not entering for the sake of a few millimetres or the lack of a movement tray.

We usually allow a couple of bases to be in shot, as long as they are still within the maximum base sizes in the rules.  There shouldn't be any with more than two images though, except for the 'Open - Army' category which is allowed 5, or if they've created a montage image themselves.

Ah, my mistake. A montage counts as one image.

An idea might be just to limit figure numbers. Last year some of my figures weren't even based  Shocked  but the rules stipulate bases and movement trays.

You can still enter them, one guy last year stood his loose painted figures in a load of sand and photo'd them there.

Looking forward to seeing the entries, each year the over all standard gets better and better  Cheesy and the job for the judges gets harder and harder  Cry.

Good luck to you all.

I'm in, just one question I know it says only Pendraken figures but in the open base category would it be ok to include a terrain piece from another manufacturer as long as all the figures are Pendraken?

Cheers

I think that was me.
