Each category is worth 5 points.

Armies of average tabletop standard, ticking most boxes, should achieve approximately 3’s in each category (excluding Bonus Points). Points should be awarded for basic criteria (ie. display board 1 point, supporting fiction 1 point, squad differentiation 1 point, cohesive bases 1 point, etc etc). Works which improve upon the basic’s shall be recognized appropriately.
