QUESTIONS  / ANSWERS

Q: Do we bring our entries to Prairie Game Expo?
A: Yes, participants will bring or arrange to have their entries at the Saturday, May 16, 2020Prairie Game Expo during the time for judging, which is 1pm to 3pm. Information about Prairie Game Expo can be found at the Prairie Game Expo forum on SaskGames. Participants are encouraged to post progress reports and pictures on the ComicReaders Downtown Painting Showcase Facebook Group.

Q: Is 'model' referring to a single base? Are 'dual' scenes allowed so long as the whole thing takes place on a single base?
A: "Model" is a single model on a single base. While a "scene" created with two or more models sounds super cool it is not the focus for this painting showcase. Something along those lines is something we could consider for a future painting showcase. Now in the case of a "model" like, for example, a Plague Marine that might have a little Nurgling with it on the base as per the kit it comes in--that is allowed.

Q: Do I have to declare the category / categories into which I am entering?
A: Yes, part of the registration process is to declare the categories / category into which you are entering. You do not have to tell us the models(s) being entered, though hobbyists are encouraged to post progress pictures on the ComicReaders Downtown Painting Showcase Group. Registration closes at the end of the day April 30.

Q: Do I have to declare the model(s) I am entering?
A: You do not have to tell us the models(s) being entered, though hobbyists are encouraged to post progress pictures on the ComicReaders Downtown Painting Showcase Group. The requirements for registration are your name and the category / categories being entered. Registration closes at the end of the day April 30.

Q: Do my models have to be finished and submitted before the deadline of April 30?
A: No. April 30 is the registration deadline. That is, the deadline for submitting your name and the categories into which you are entering. Your model(s) need to be finished in time for the May 16, 2020 Prairie Game Expo.
