Thanks to everyone who entered the 2018 Pendraken Painting Competition, we've seen a fantastic standard of painting this year and we've thoroughly enjoyed watching the entries come in.  I hope you all enjoyed in as much as we did!

In a change to the format this year, the voting has been entirely in the hands of our members and has been open for the past week.  Every member had 3 votes to cast in each category, so let's see how they judged it...

The Winners of the 2018 Pendraken Painting Competition are...

Foot - Pre-20th C. (34 entries)

This category saw one entry pull away from the pack but there's been a 3-way tie for second place!

1st place: Mixed grenadiers, by redstef - wins 40 Pendraken credit!

Joint 2nd place: Ansbach-Beyreuth, by paulr - wins 20 Pendraken credit!

Joint 2nd place: Early Saxons, by barbarian - wins 20 Pendraken credit!

Joint 2nd place: Saxe-Eisenach, by DHautpol - wins 20 Pendraken credit!

Foot - 20th C. (11 entries)

Again we had a clear winner than a few fighting it out for second place.

1st place: WWI Germans, by Forez42 - wins 40 Pendraken credit!

2nd place: Soviet AA, by Womble67 - wins 20 Pendraken credit!

Mounted (30 entries)

There was a real fight in this category with 1st and 2nd place only separated by 1 vote!

1st place: Polish Hussars, by shutuphippe - wins 40 Pendraken credit!

2nd place: Prussian Dragoons, by Redstef - wins 20 Pendraken credit!

Vehicle (28 entries)

This was another very close contest, with only 2 votes separating the winner from 2nd place!

1st place: Panzer IV, by skinade - wins 40 Pendraken credit!

2nd place: Type 95 Ha-Go, by Rubenmegido - wins 20 Pendraken credit!

Fantasy & Sci-Fi (12 entries)

First place was quite decisive in this category but 2nd was up for grabs for a long time until Ironduke grabbed it!

1st place: Wood Elves, by clawlessdragon - wins 40 Pendraken credit!

2nd place: Undead skeletons, by Ironduke - wins 20 Pendraken credit!

Open - Single Base (20 entries)

We had some excellent entries in this category with two nice entries getting 1st and 2nd place!

1st place: Wiliam of Orange, by redstef - wins 40 Pendraken credit!

2nd place: LoA Commanders, by DHautpol - wins 20 Pendraken credit!

Open - Army! (18 entries)

First place had a clear winner here and then we had DHautpol fighting it out with himself for 2nd and 3rd!

1st place: Servants of France, by Rupert of Hentzau - wins 40 Pendraken credit!

2nd place: LoA French, by DHautpol - 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!  

Also, a huge thank you to everyone who entered from all of us here at Pendraken HQ.  We always look forward to the Competition each year, watching every day as these wonderful entries come in.  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.

We'd like to thank all of the members for judging as well, it was a difficult task and we appreciate you taking the time to go through all of the entries.

 Thumbs up

Just about everyone I voted for there won, so can't complain about any of those verdicts. Congrats to the winners, that was by far the hardest competition to judge so far. Best Army could easily have had at least half a dozen entries at the top.
