    Sportsmanship will be judged by checklist after each round:
    # Did your opponent share their army list with you before the game? Yes/No
    # Did your opponent come prepared to play and bring all required items to play (dice, templates, rulers, rulebooks, codices, pens, calculators, etc.) Yes/No
    # Was your opponent consistent about game procedures, such as re-rolling Gene Simmonsed dice or picking up failed dice rolls instead of successes? Yes/No
    # Did your opponent appear to measure movement and assault distances accurately? Yes/No
    # Did your opponent show up on time and put forward a good faith effort to play at a timely pace and complete the game in the allotted time? Yes/No (3 points)
    # Were rules issues that may have arisen during the game handled amicably by your opponent? Yes/No
    # Was your opponent's army easy to understand with clear conversions or completely WYSWIG? Yes/No
    # Would you voluntarily play this person again? Yes/No

    Each question is worth 1 point, except for on time / played at a timely pace which is worth 3 points. This allows for a total of 30 possible points for sportsmanship.

    Painting will be judged based on the following rubric:
    # Fully painted with at least three colors - 10
    # Fully based (flock, sand, etc) - 5
    # Army received both of the above - 5
    # Conversion points* - 2
    # Details are painted (eyes, jewelry, belts) - 2
    # Army has discernible highlights - 2
    # Army has multiple highlights / washing / shading - 2
    # Army is one of the top three judge's choice - 2
    # Army has a full painted display base - 1 **
    # Display base has a lot of detail / advanced painting or scene - 2 **

    * Army has either multiple simple conversions or a small amount of advanced conversions.

    For a total of 30 possible points, with someone who is fully painted+based regardless of the skill of said painting receiving at least 20. Then 3 bonus points for a display board. Display counts towards overall, but not best painted.

    Armies painted by other people are not eligible for Best Painted but will not otherwise affect you.
