I have to agree, all looking superb!
Three different bats entered in fantasy so far - who'd have thought it!   Cheesy Best bat goes to...
Looks like 'fred 12df' and I are on the same base sizes for Later Roman Legionarii - wonder what rules he is using and if he fancies a game some time?  Wink

3 Bats! I'd only spotted one entry before, hadn't realised I was such a follower...

My Romans are based for WM, but I'm playing far more Hail Caesar (with 10mm) these days. My painted Romans aren't really an army yet

There are an extra couple of units since that photo, but not many.

If you are up for a game I'm in the NW (between Liverpool and Preston)

The quality and quantity of the entries is really high - and there are more and more by the hour.

I think we need to have product codes with entries, as there are loads I am looking at going I didn't know Pendraken did that!

What are the huts and the baskets on the 30YW camps?

Probably my mistake, I realize that they are not pendraken. Sorry. Embarrassed
I was posting away with my figures, and I did not realize in time the camps were from a different manufacturer.
I shall take them down, (if I can). Yep just replaced them by my wifes artillery.

I know there's still just over a day to go...But can I say many congratulations to all.
I really can't believe how good the standard of painting is (You're all show offs !)...and the quality of a huge number of the photo's is simply astounding.
I'm just going to have to go back to the drawing board.
I might have just ONE more go at photoing Kiera (if that's allowed).
Good luck to the judges !!
Cheers - Phil.



Well, thanks for your kind words  Smiley  But it's ok as it is..the Jägers got finished just in time, so I have an entry for the pre 20th cenutry foot category.

And I totally agree that this year's painting comp is just awesome, stunning amount of great pieces of work to be seen here  Thumbs up

If the pictures is too large and you have no idea how to scale it down (like me) try the following:

open your picture
make screenshot (print button, upper right corner)
open paint
press strg + v
select the funny tool with whom you can cut out parts of a picture (first row in paint next to the "lasso")
cut out your picture
open new paint window
press strg +  v
safe it
done

on the way to re-photograph my one and only dwarf I managed to paint, I lost him  Shocked luckily with about 40 minutes of backtracking and thought I realised I had probably put him on the book case, the one I had just set all the lights and card etc on... yup in my haste to do the job I knocked him off the back...luckily he didnt go down the gap between the wall nad the skirting board, but with a bit of poking he fell right down the back and onto the floor it was then only the matter of swearing loudly as I managed to squeeze my size 10 hand into a size 8 gap under the furniture.... at least I found him Embarrassed Embarrassed Embarrassed Embarrassed

but apart from my woes... an excellent competition with some fabbo entries well done to everyone who entered  Applause Applause Applause

I genuinely wouldn't like to be a judge on this one. 

Definately some close calls to be made!


Will the judges be commenting on their decisions this year?  Why they chose the winners etc.?

I think that would be quite interesting to read.

I've left it up to the Judges whether they would like to add comments when they allocate their points, but hopefully there'll be some feedback.
