Firstly I would like to congratulate and thank everybody who entered. I spend a lot of time creating my strange little miniatures and it immensely satisfying to see them painted Smiley

Now, for the important job of judging the winners! There are three prizes, plus a bonus prize to Hairy Norseman for the only entry in this year's Prepre Preeners Prize...

Public Vote: Joek won a comprehensive victory in the public vote with his beautifully painted Roban. As the official Twilight painter I'm sure he's cheating, but there's no denying how well it's turned out! I'm going to have to convince him to do a few more 'arty' pieces as well as the studio paintjobs...

Joe's Arty Prize: Joe seems to have a good eye, so I asked if he would pick his favourite paintjob from the entries. After much deliberation he selected Letchai's knight:
"It's followed the studio paintjob, but it's done very nicely, with some really good shading and highlighting on the skin. Also like the base - nothing too elaborate, but works perfectly well with the figure itself Smiley"

Mike's Twilight Prize: I like to be a bit more fanciful when selecting a winner - looking for something that really catches my eye, or tells a story that fits within Twilight.
Letchai's knight is lovely and if he'd finished the display base in time we might have had a different winner... Certainly worth checking out the finished piece!
So that brings me to the winner... Tom's Orelan unit and Grishak. The paintjobs are good, but I particularly like the distinctive blue armour of the militia and how they all sit together as a unit. The grishak are a little out of place, but they are nicely painted and tell a story.

I'll have to try and do sig blocks for the prizes and send me an email so we can discuss prizes. I'm about to send off some models to the casters, so should be able to sort you something special Smiley

Thanks again to everybody.
Mike

Congratulations Joe and Letchai - well deserved!

As for Tom, neither of us saw that coming. I was really pleased that he showed the maturity to be pleased with his entry and survey the other entries and just be pleased that he had entered. He was not expecting to win at all!
Sorry the grishak are a bit out of place. Tom had painted them and wanted to use them as a focus for the Orelan militia. We sort of invented a bit of a back story to it as well.
Tom also chose the blue for the Orelan - he wanted them to be distinct from the standard militia which we have painted red. The captain is a different shade of blue, but I am not sure that comes across in the photos.

Thanks for the choice - Tom is now bragging that he has beaten me at a painting competition! Roll Eyes

Finally got round to ordering Tom's prize for the competition - a Grakukan captain for his Orelan contingent.
Also ordered a few other goodies - including our first Dhogu - could be the start of something big!! Wink
Will try to keep you all posted on progress.
