The Rules and Definitions

Categories' Definitions
Science Fiction and Steampunk: in this category you can enter single miniatures, clearly identified as Science Fiction or Steampunk, up to 40 mm of heights. This measure is valid for the standing miniature; if the miniature is in a different position (kneeling, squatting, laying on the ground) the measure is again intended for a virtually standing position. The height of the base is not included. Any race is included except monsters
Fantasy: in this category you can enter single miniatures, clearly identified as Fantasy, up to 40 mm of heights. This measure is valid for the standing miniature; if the miniature is in a different position (kneeling, squatting, laying on the ground) the measure is again intended for a virtually standing position. The height of the base is not included. Any race is included except monsters
Simply Outrageous: in this category you can enter single miniatures, any kind, up to 40 mm of heights, which are characterized by an outrageous pose or suit. This means that you can enter miniatures that are partially or totally naked, or that are particularly sexy or challenging. The measure is intended for the standing miniature; if the miniature is in a different position (kneeling, squatting, laying on the ground) the measure is again intended for a virtually standing position. The height of the base is not included. Any race is included except monsters
So Big!!: in this category you can enter single miniatures, any kind, above 40 mm of heights. NO matters how big they are, NO matters what kind it is. In this category might fall 54-65-90-120-200 mm miniatures, busts, etc. Here you can also enter mounted miniatures (on horses, monster, any animal, motorcycles, etc)
Female Horrors: in this category you can enter single miniatures, any kind, up to 65 mm of heights, which are belonging to Horror. This means that you can enter miniatures that are characterized by an horrific look, or they are involved in an horrific action or they belong to an Horror movie. In case they are in an horrific scene, please take care not to set up a too big scene (this is another category). So, a female zombie with a beheaded trophy in her hand is acceptable, a female champion on a battlefield is not acceptable.
Greens: in this NEW category you can enter single miniatures, any kind as long as they are females and as long as they are your own sculpt. Conversion are accepted as long as the conversion is at least involving 2/3 of the miniature. It will be the Arbiter discretion to accept or reject a conversion, while scratchbuilts will be anyway accepted. No limits for the size, so you can enter a 1:1 statue or a 28-30 mm miniature (not below 28 mm eyes to ground)
OPEN: in this category you can enter groups of miniatures, any kind, up to 40 mm of heights or dioramas, sculptures (green, not painted), and any other kind of female subject that doesn't fit in the other categories. NO matters how big they are, NO matters what kind it is.

Voting
There will be a "popular" vote and an "international Critics" vote

Voting starts from Saturday 11 December to Sunday 19 December (included)


The Critics vote is totally disjunct from the popular one. The participation to the contest and to the vote is linked to the membership to the Legio Pictorum . Vote expressed by people that is not a member of the Legio will not be taken into account.

Voting Mechanism - Popular Jury
Each person will express his/her vote by using a downloadable table (click here) which will need to be sent as an attachment to chick.vote@yahoo.com.
It is mandatory that: 1) the email comes from the same email address that you used for registering yourself on the Legio Pictorum Forum; and 2) that the subject is exactly "Vote for - Voto per Chick Challenge"; all emails with a different subject will be immediately deleted.
Don't vote for yourself, it is not allowed and will make your whole vote not valid!

The miniature is identified through the number that is assigned to it and displayed under the entry name, between the A and B link to the pictures.

miniature number

Therefore it is will enough to write one number for each chosen miniature, for example:
Oro/Gold
Argento/Silver
Bronzo/Bronze
21
04
34
 

The Best of Show wil lbe identified among chosen Golds. It will be therefore enough to put an X in the "Best of Show" column, in correspondence to the section whose Gold is for you the best Gold of the competion. For example:

Sci-Fi
Steampunk
Oro/Gold
Argento/Silver
Bronzo/Bronze
45
64
34
X
 
 

In this example then, among all Golds that the person has identified, the Gold for the Category Sci-Fi is considered the Best of Show.

Mechanism by which points are assigned
3, 2 or 1 point will be assigned to the miniatures according to their classification (Gold, Silver, Bronze). The winning miniatures will be the first three ones in the general rank for each category. When the same point is reached for two miniatures, the ranking will go according to the number of Golds, or Silver, or Bronzes, respectively. In case of further deuce, then ex-equo prizes will be assigned.
For the Best of Show, the miniature that has obtained more votes as BoS (not in general). In case of same points amount, the one having the highest general ranking (adding then silvers and bronzes)will be the winning miniature.

The popular jury vote and International vote are disjunct, therefore a miniature, for example, can get a gold (or a silver or a bronze) from both the popular and the international jury or can get a recognition from one jury and not from the other. All combinations are allowed and possible except:

  • Who will win the Best of Show, will not win any other prize; as a consequence of this, the Gold in that category will be given to the next contestant in the rank, and so on for Silver and Bronze;
  • In case of assignement of the Best of Show to the same miniature by both Juries, only the International BoS will be given, while the Popular Jury BoS will be given to the next contestant in the ranking, identified with the above described way.
    These rules will ensure that the prizes will be assigned to the greatest number of painters, avoiding this way an excessive concentration of prizes over one painter, despite he or she might deserve it.
    In case of discussion or doubt, the Arbiter is the solely person that will clarify the issue and no appeal is foreseen after his decision.

    The Legio Pictorum is a large Painters' Community, that in time (it was founded in Nov 2005) made a large number of Italian Painters to grow in their skill, but also allowed them to establish interesting and deep friendships. Many newcomers found the Forum a nice place where to talk about miniatures with no constrains and on top of that, a place where to learn painting techniques from some of the best painters in the Italian panorama.
