Title: People's Choice - Please vote!
Post by: Leon on 08 March 2012, 05:32:13 AM
The Judges have had their say, and the winner's and runner's up have been announced, so now it's up to everyone else to decide who the People's Choice is!  This year, due to the number of options, we've decided to increase the number of votes, so this time everyone can choose their favourite 3 entries!

The winner of the People's Choice Award will receive £20 worth of goods from Minibits, along with a nice shiny badge on their profile!

Voting is open for the next week, and will close at 6pm on Wednesday 14th, so make sure to cast your votes in time!

So, the choices are:

Oops.. fixed that now! 


Remind me, these are the entries which gained a judge vote, or didn't gain a judge vote?
How are these nominations chosen?

The Judges were allowed to allocate 3/2/1 points to their favourite 3 entries in each category.  The points were all tallied up to give 1st and 2nd place winners.  All of the other entries which had received at least 1 point in that process were then put into this People's Choice Award.  I've then added a couple of my own favourites, mostly from the Anything Goes category, as there were so many strong contenders in that one.

I voted for 2 earlier as I couldn't see all the pictures from work. I suspect it'd be better just to have picked one.

Glad Benmoors Dwarves made it on the list. I was sure they'd kick my rats out of the main competition. Hope he gets more votes from the peoples...

How on earth do we compare a single Tiger 1 with and entire battalion of Napoleonic Austrians? Centaurs with an AWI command group? To quote Freddy Mercury - "I'm going slightly mad..." #:-S
