Oops, and you can't change your votes like previous years. I put in some quick starter votes meaning to have a think and a revise - oh well.

but it is true that it is very difficult to choose ....... I see the pictures many times before deciding .........

How am I supposed to only pick 3 from all of those great entries. I got to about 12 possibles on my first pass through.

Going to need a paper and pencil - also having individual and army entries from the same person makes it harder.

Doubly glad I didn't have to judge the whole lot!!

Seconded

 Whew! I'd also put in some initial votes aiming to revise them

Its unfortunate but I suspect some of the photographs themselves do not do justice to the skill of some of the contestants' entries.

Indeed, I never get the lighting right on my pictures, so i suspect many others have the same problem.

I don't care though, I just enter to be part of it!

I forgot to enter my complete armies for the ACW though!

Now I have some empathy for the judges - hard to decide. In many cases they are just different styles or something. I am really shocked to see 10mm figures painted with black lining and highlighting shading on faces and so on. I have seen many many 28s that are not that good. Seeing them in person would be even better.  I chose Pendraken figures because they have enough detail that a simple wash will make everything stand out great - I honestly don't know how you guys can paint to that level.

Does it stop you voting for yourself ? (just kidding)

I still think I should get extra credit for painting eyes in 10mm (on the elephants ...). If not extra credit, maybe just a visit from the men in the white coats

I always think the People's Choice is a LOT harder to judge than the individual categories !   Grin

Though, some of those were really difficult to judge. (Personally I could have permed 3 from 'oodles' in a couple... I see Forbes has a starting list of 12 in his first run through !).

JW is absolutely right, in that in an ideal World it would best to be actually have the individual models/armies/bases to see in the 'flesh'....Sadly I think we all know that, that is just going to be a dream.

Anyway.....Enjoy scratching your heads, like we poor b*ggers did for the last month. Tongue Wink

Cheers - Phil

Painting is one thing and the painting here I would never be able to emulate...

But at this scale 'staging' is at least as important and I have voted for units which have a more 'organic' appearance.
