It is called, “Maximizing Your Appearance Score,” and is taught by the very talented, Caleb Wissenbeck at this year’s Adepticon.
In his own words:
This is Caleb Wissenback, So I’m teaching this class that’s pretty new for most cons. It’s called ” Maxamize your Appearance Score” It focuses on the tournament player that wants to take their army further as far as appearance goes . With all the set rubrics out there you can game the paint side to get the most points possible . I also talk a bit about composition and how to catch the judges eye and get them to spend the time looking over your army . I’ve been judging paint for a few years now at events like TLGT, Broadside,BAO,COC, and LVO . I’ve also painted armies that have taken best paint at quite a few events.
Anyways here’s my class description:
