Paint/Hobby Requirements 


ArcHeresy will be using the Arcfest Model Policy Guidelines at the discretion of the TO. Use the Contact Us form if you have concerns, and the EO's will get in contact with you.

A big part of what makes the Heresy so great is the level of effort and attention to detail for all to see across so many incredible armies. While it is acceptable to paint your Zone Mortalis forces to a three-colour minimum (tabletop standard), we strongly encourage all hobbyists to present their best possible representations of either The Warmaster or The Emperor’s forces.


In keeping with the consistently high quality hobby standard of the Australian Heresy community, things like highlighting, decals, and weathering are strongly encouraged. While we understand that not all of us are the most gifted with brush in hand, we do hope to see this extra effort reflected across these smaller forces at Arc Heresy 2024!

The EO’s choice award will not be given to the “Best painted” army necessarily. The things mentioned above, as well as unique army features are likely to contribute greatly to the winner of this award.


In addition to weathering and decals, listed below are some examples of simple ways to really make your Legion or army stand out for certain armies:


Night Lords - Blood and gore, Bat wings, Sharp-edged blades

World Eaters - Blood and gore, Chains and chain-axes, Bare arms, Bunny ear heads

Death Guard - Rust, Disease/mutation (Traitor)

Word Bearers - FIRE!!!, Daemonic glyphs/symbols, Robes

Dark Angels - Hoods/robes, Swords, Black and white checkered pattern

Iron Hands - “Oil slick” armor, Bionic limbs/body mods

Salamanders - Scales, Flames, Flamers/Meltas

Sons of Horus - Spikes, Chains, Sharp-edged blades, “Chaosy” iconography (Traitor)


There are so many more possibilities as to how you theme your Heresy force.



The Unyielding One - Best Loyalist General   (Trophy, Prize, Certificate)

The Warmaster - Best Traitor General (Trophy, Prize, Certificate)


The Diplomat - Best Sports (Trophy, Prize, Certificate)
