We've finished the revision of the AMPS contest rules and asked our web-master to publishing them in the Show and Convention portion of the AMPS web-site (www.amps-armor.org). They should be available shortly.
We've made one major change in the AMPS contest rules for this year. This change is the addition of a Vignette Category (Category XI). Vignettes are similar to dioramas and are scored in the same manner. The key difference is that vignettes do NOT have to tell a story. This category is designed and intended for modelers that have expanded out from pure armor modeling to include figures, groundwork and/or scenery, or for figure modelers who wish to set their figure(s) into a landscaped scene. It allows the modeler in this category to have his entire work judged without being put in the diorama category where storyline plays a key role. For example, a tank crew sitting on a tank or a soldier nearby a vehicle adds interest but does not necessarily tell a story. It is up to the modeler to decide if they think their work is a diorama or a vignette. It is also up to the modeler to determine if they want to enter a regular model category or the Vignette Category.
