Knew I should have made more usernames to get more votes... Must remember that for next year  Wink

Seriously, congratulations Sandro, really nice painting and basing. Is this a gaming piece or a display piece?

Many thanks to you mates...
I'm really happy and proud to be the people's choice...
Onestly the level of entries was very very high, congratulations to all patecipants, and overall to Leon and the Pendraken staff. A big competition and wonderful figures of course.

Fred, this is a display piece. I ordered some AWI figures, but do not arrived in time, so I used some ACW and SYW figures I had in spare boxes to arrange something for the competition.
To be honest till some weeks ago i was mainly a 6mm painter and player, tilll some weeks ago....
Last let me say thanks to my brother Paolo, a professional photographer, for the pictures.
Again many thanks to all.

Very deserved winner but equally surprised this entry didn't do much better in the main competition Cool

From a perosnal point of view I was pleased to get joint 3rd after not securing a single point in 2011 Smiley

Thanks to Leon and the Judges for putting on the competition and for the astonishing amount of effort that goes into staging and judging these things.

I have to say though that I still find myself a little disappointed that so few members bothered to vote even though there was a decent increase in entries this year. Once again a pretty poor showing given the number of entrants and forum members.

Just for info, in the time the People's Choice poll was running, just over 200 of our members were active at one time or another, so the 84 people who did vote is around 40% of that.  It was an increase on last years poll, but it would have been nice to get over 100 voters.  Still, thanks to everyone who did vote, and we'll hit the 100 voters mark next year!
