Next Saturday, August 27th, Hobbytown Fort Collins and the Knights of the Gaming Table will host its 3rd IRON MAN PAINTING CHALLENGE! Iron Man is a two day event where participants attempt to paint as many models as they can or crank out the highest quality minis they can or both! It is a grueling, brush-hand-cramping marathon of painterliness, and there are prizes!
How does it work? Simply, starting Saturday morning at the 10 am check-in time, bring in your $7.00 entry fee (which pays for refreshments and stuff) and as many unpainted models as you like. Throughout the day until 2 a.m., paint like the wind! Then it starts all over again Sunday morning, from 10 - 4, with judging to follow.
Models may be assembled and primed at check-in, but can have no other paint on them in order to qualify for entry (colored primer is acceptable). The event is judged on a sliding scale between quality of models painted and quantity, so three amazing models can beat 40 three-color slopped together dudes, if they are good enough!
You'll laugh, you'll cry, your hand will fall off. See you there!
