OF ALL MAKES EQUINE DECORATOR/FANTASY will not receive NAN cards. These will start after OF BREYER BREED CLASSES.
CM EQUINE DECORATOR/FANTASY will be eligible for NAN qualification in the workmanship division. CM/AR Fantasy Equine entries will be judged based on the artistry of the sculpture, lack of prepping and painting flaws, overall presentation, and believability of the creature's biomechanics. These classes will start after the CM division.
Fantasy Equine eligibility is limited to equine-based fantasy models such as Equine Unicorns, Pegasus, Hippocampus, Hippogriff, Thestral, Zombie Horse, Skeletal Horse, or other fantasy equines which depict a creature that is at least 50% equine in form. Determination of the 50% compliance for equine creatures is decided by the judge. Approval of the 50% compliant equine models at the local show level does not guarantee eligibility at NAN. Creatures that have partial human anatomy or anatomy similar to humans are not allowed even if they are more than 50% equine.
A person may not show and judge in the same division at a NAN-Qualifying Show. A division is defined as one or more grouped classes such as “OF Breyer Plastic”.
A judge may not judge any model that he/she has worked/collaborated on. A judge may not judge any model which he/she owns or has owned within the last six months. A judge may not judge models owned by relatives of the judge. A judge may not judge any models owned by any individual who co-owns one or more models with that judge. This means that on rare occasions a shower may be asked not to show a specific model. Last-minute changes to the judges' roster cannot be made to accommodate a model.
NAN entry qualifications earned at NAMHSA member shows are provided to entrants in the form of NAN cards. These cards are now the only proof of a model’s NAN qualification. Show entrants will be responsible for filling out the class/horse information on the card.
