Title: And The Winners Are...!
Post by: Leon on 08 March 2021, 03:01:34 PM
First of all, thanks to everyone who has entered the 2021 Pendraken Painting Competition, after a long year of lockdowns we hope that you've enjoyed taking part.  The standard of painting has been fantastic this year and hopefully you've all enjoyed watching the entries come in as much as we have!

The voting was done by our Forum members who had 5 votes to cast per category, so without further ado...

The Winners of the 2021 Pendraken Painting Competition are...


Foot - Pre-20th C. (56 entries)

This category had the highest number of entries and there was some close voting going on to begin with.  In the end two entries pulled clear:

1st place: Forez42's 1870 French - wins £40 Pendraken credit! and a copy of the 'Pickett's Charge' ACW wargames rules from Too Fat Lardies / Dave Brown

2nd place: shrimproll9's SYW Grenzers - wins £20 Pendraken credit!

Foot - 20th C. (15 entries)

This one was a much closer affair with 5 different entries all vying for 1st place, with the winner just pulling out in front on the final day!

1st place: Forez42's WWI Scottish - wins £40 Pendraken credit! and a copy of the new 'O Group' WWII wargames rules from Too Fat Lardies / Dave Brown.
(https://nsa40.casimages.com/img/2021/02/21/210221043923783459.jpg)


2nd place: streetgang's Falklands Argentinians - wins £20 Pendraken credit!

Mounted (32 entries)

Another tough category and an interesting one where the 2nd and 3rd place entries were from the same person, so would a single entry have meant a winners medal?!

1st place: shrimproll9's SYW Austrian Hussars - wins £40 Pendraken credit! and a copy of the 'General D'Armee' Napoleonic wargames rules from Too Fat Lardies / Dave Brown.

2nd place: chris_vde's Vidosvan horse archers - wins £20 Pendraken credit!
(https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/50930746806_68f05d3732_z.jpg)



Vehicle (34 entries)

We had a clear winner here with shrimproll9 picking up another prize!  2nd place was the closest race in the competition with 7-8 other entries all being in the mix for a long time.

1st place: shrimproll9's SYW wagons - wins £40 Pendraken credit! and a £25 voucher from Battlescale.
(https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/50972253948_ba2af675fb_c.jpg)


2nd place: Forez42's Russian tanks - wins £20 Pendraken credit!

Fantasy & Sci-Fi (18 entries)

There were some really nice entries here and a good spread of voting across the field.  In the end it was a nice conversion job that took 1st place!  

1st place: Coenus Scaldingus's Boyar and Bear - wins £40 Pendraken credit! and a selection of 10mm Buildings from Warbases.
(https://db3pap006files.storage.live.com/y4molWHZWbdvyR6jTR8pJ8rx2a5Jx0DR_pJZYQjzlsRRnYe1lpWfX7FTwbgUA27RcMC0tnm6KOCkaRjGWgUjKn-kKID-f2EqdMhmBQ1wH--m3VFQMYtv4xoWvu4kAZxfyKCSsdyNaBL3ptz3_HytmE7ve--NqhhMBDolv4vfxQl87s-4E8XCrf9rtiOemXgmhIf?width=900&height=600&cropmode=none)


2nd place: Miniatureforrest's Undead cavalry - wins £20 Pendraken credit!
(https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/50898901616_61035d044b_c.jpg)



Open - Single Base (40 entries)

There was a bit of a surprise in this category with a single figure being enough to take 1st place!  There was a real fight for 2nd place though with it going right down to the final day of voting!

1st place: Coenus Scaldingus's Wolnik the Raven-Eyed - wins £40 Pendraken credit! and a £25 voucher from TimeCast.
(https://db3pap006files.storage.live.com/y4mivxClr7X4_mUOij0tPH2ZS_1yEjL6ifNVnbrTz74dlUFir385PKi4xIJLsdbjH1_ryr9fCcnZDhhW8ksNuzHUD_9f_JbQYnl4pwT_HTU9j_6raLUlobRM9WTF-sE27OXGHhdg3QOW-dIBB5q6wjYsYjanZ-a_QDCZv-x2rZzbML0DTS9mDFsfSbY8FKkthYW?width=900&height=599&cropmode=none)


2nd place: BH62's French line command - wins £20 Pendraken credit!
(https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/50989632363_de7a98a494_z.jpg)



Open - Army! (28 entries)

The Army category always brings some great entries and this year was no different. Our winner was pretty constant all week but 2nd place has bounced around a bit and there was only 1 vote in it by the close of play!


1st place: mollinary's Anglo Saxons - wins £40 Pendraken credit! and £20 voucher off any fleece mat from Geek Villain.
(https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/50930569636_c62c305a0e_b.jpg)


2nd place: kodosg42's Crusaders - wins £20 Pendraken credit!

Congratulations to all of our winners!  We'll be contacting you in the next few days to get your prizes sorted out.  We'll also get your Winner's medals added to your profiles!  

Thanks again to everyone for taking the time to enter after what's been a pretty rough 12 months for all of us.  The time and effort that goes into achieving such a high standard is appreciated by all of us here and we hope you've enjoyed it as much as we have.  It was great to have the competition back and we'll be running it again in 2022!

And a thank you to all of our members for taking care of the judging as well, it was a difficult task and we appreciate you taking the time to go through all of the entries.

Congratulations to all who took part and especially to those who won.
Casting votes was difficult as the quality of work presented was tremendous!  I very nearly didn't enter mine as saw the quality of the first entries.

Right time to start work on next years entries!

Once again well done to everyone.

Thanks to Pendraken for this nice competition.

I'm very happy to have won in the Pre-20th C. category, because the level was very high, but also because I like the movement and engraving quality of the French 2nd Empire miniatures.

Well done everybody.

10mm shown off at its very visual best.
Anybody saying "Isn't that a bit small" can now be directed to this chat.

Congratulations winners, a few talented brushers have multiple wins in there.

The rest of us have 12 months to improve.
Plenty of fine examples (above) to inspire.

Many thanks, Leon, you’ve done a great job getting the competition up and running again. A big surprise to be one of the winners, and many congratulations to all competitors, whether winners or not. - great stuff!  One positive thing  to come out of lockdown, I have finally rediscovered the satisfaction of painting!

Fantastic entries and deserved winners.

Question though.  Wolnik has eyes but do I also see fingernails or do I need to lie down in a dark room from too much eye strain?

A very big congrats to all winners and runners-up, but also, a very big congrats to all who entered! Alas, I was unable to get mine done in time. Every entry was worthy of a prize, if you ask me. There is some serious talent among Pendraken customers. Some truly beautiful art was displayed, here!

Congratulations to all the winners, and many thanks for the kind voters for making me part of that group! Still a bit taken aback to be honest; guess my second 10mm army may be a reality sooner and cheaper than I had anticipated...

And my gratitude to the generous sponsors of the competition too! I'll be sure to share images of painted products whenever I can!
