Sat – 9:00 AM-12:00 PM: Forged In Foam

A chance for the attendees to show their skills. This contest is different from last year. In 2018, you had 22 hours to design and build terrain. This year, you will have approximately 3.5 hours to design and build a miniature diorama. Each contestant will randomly choose a miniature. Your diorama must be representative of the chosen miniature in design and construction. There is no cost to enter, but seating is limited. Only 16 slots are available. The winners will be judged by a select and secret group of professionals. Rules and Diorama Requirements will be revealed at the start of the contest. Prizes will be awarded. Paints supplied by PLAID. Additional Supplies Provided by THE ARMY PAINTER.

Sat – 2:00 PM-6:00 PM: Iron Chef: Craft Masters, The Guild Build, The Master’s of Crafting Craft-Off

Heavy is the head that wears the Foam Crown! Scotty, Vee, Gareth, Bill and Jeremy go head to head in this crafting Challenge. It is time to crown a leader among the masters. Someone to wear the crown of victory and to lord over the others with comments like, “Ha, Ha I’m better than you”, and “wow, yours looked so good, I don’t know how I won”.
So, who will win this test of skill? Who will become the greatest terrain master of the next few weeks? How long before some serious smack talk begins? Who will be victorious? Time, 4 hours of it, will tell. Come join us at MACE and see! Paints supplied by PLAID. Additional Supplies Provided by THE ARMY PAINTER.
