Thematic army selection
Any criteria which goes above and beyond high standards
(amazing freehand, multi-stage highlighting, extensive scratchbuilds, extensive sculpting, any other standout pieces, unusually impressive hobby, any of the previous criteria which is deserving of exceptional recognition)
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.
