We recorded an episode of Bad Dice with Mark and Stave last night!  Really excited about the event and seeing what GHB2 beings to the game.  
[mention=6]Stevewren[/mention] is building some amazing tabes for Warhammer Achievements.  


If only I could do both :-(

Hi [mention=2]Ben[/mention] looking forward to seeing the pack for AoS - particularly interested in the soft scores as I paint at a snails pace! What's the ETA on that? Cheers



This is from last years:

The Minimum Blood and Glory Standard (Or Minimum Basic Gaming Standard, MBGS for short) is the basic level that we require every army at our event to adhere to. This applies to every game system played at the event.

- All parts of all models are neatly painted and shaded or highlighted. The bases are painted and textured and all units of more than a single model have appropriately sized painted movement trays

- Models that do not meet this standard will be removed from the event and no points will be awarded in the category that was missed.

As you can see from the breakdown of scores below, all armies at the event will score 15 points for getting the rst point in each category. The 2nd point in each will be very easy to get with just a little more effort across the whole army. That will get you a score of 20 points and you now have 15 areas to pick up 10 more points.

Cohesiveness
An army that is not Cohesive will be capped at 15 Painting Points.

When looking for an army to be cohesive we want to see that the whole army looks like it is all part of the same army and does not look like it has been borrowed from a few different sources.

Scoring

Painting will be scored using a clear and easy to understand check list. The following areas will be checked – Painting, Basing, Movement Trays, Conversions, Terrain. In addition there will be a bonus checklist of points that do not fall into these categories.

There are a maximum of 36 points available. We are capping painting scores at 30 points.

This give players a number of different ways to attain a higher score by working to the areas in which they excel and avoid being penalized for not having skills in other areas.

Painting
3 Points for meeting the MBGS See page 2 for details
1 Point for a generally higher than basic standard To award this we would be looking for signs of shading and highlighting above just a single wash or dry brushing
1 Point for an Advanced level of painting To award this we would be looking for multiple painting techniques well executed to a high standard

Basing
3 Points for meeting the MBGS See page 2 for details
1 Point for a generally higher than basic standard To award this we would be looking for use of multiple type of textures and painting and highlighting used where required
1 Point for an Advanced level of basing To award this we would be looking for multiple well executed basing techniques

Movement Trays
3 Points for meeting the MBGS See page 2 for details
1 point for Trays being painted and textured to match the units bases
1 Point for an extra effort to make the trays seem part of the unit To award this we would be looking for more than just a sanded and flocked tray, extra attention paid to the bases would be continued to the trays

Terrain
3 Points for all 4 pieces of terrain being painted to the MBGS See page 2 for details
1 Point if generally higher than basic standard of painting and/or modelling techniques have been used on 1 piece of terrain
1 Point if generally higher than basic standard of painting and/or modelling techniques have been used on all 4 pieces of terrain

Conversions
3 Points for the army having a few basic conversions To award this we would be looking for conversions throughout (basic kit bashing, weapon or head swaps, alternate figures for characters)
1 Point for either a high number of basic conversions across the army or a smaller number of higher level conversions To award this we wold be looking for reposed models using green stuff , basic sculpting, in depth kit bashing
1 point for the army having at least 1 Advanced Conversion To award this we would be looking for multiple conversion techniques used in detail on a single figure
1 point for a large number of Advanced Conversions To award this we would be looking for multiple conversion techniques used in detail across the whole army

Bonus Points
1 point for bringing a display board To award this we are looking for something that enhances the look of your army, not just to give a point for bringing a tray. It should be painted to the MBGS for bases
1 Point for a generally higher than basic standard of display board To award this we would be looking for use of multiple type of textures and painting and highlighting used where required
1 Point for an advanced level of display board To award this we would be looking for a high level of modelling or panting techniques.
1 Point for some freehand painting in your army To award this we only need to see a single attempt. Have a go, you might surprise yourself!
1 Point for freehand painting throughout your army To award this we are looking for freehand painting used throught the army
1 Point for blending painting in your army To award this we only need to see a single attempt. Have a go, the GW Nagash technique is really easy.
1 Point for an impressive centerpiece to your army
1 point for an impressive overall effect To award this we are looking for an army that Wows the judges
1 point for filling in the Player Painting sheet* players get chance to show the juges their own thoughts on their army
1 point for Round Bases You get this for the whole army being on round/oval bases.

@Ben will you be selling scenery and buff dice at the event, or at least looking to do another club deal?

People are looking to load me up while I'm there.

will be done by 7 for sure.  Probably more like 6.30 but that might be pushing it to see awards and get to your train.
