Nice to see that the voting is up.

Great work to all the entrants, nice to see a good selection of different pieces of terrain.

My favourites are the sleek and clean looking Eldar construct and the Ork emplacement, especially the saying No Grotz is very funny and pretty original.

I agree, the spread is very good in this round. Thank you all for the inspiration!

And if whoever made 'A' had taken (found?) the time to enter a finished work, I'd have put my vote there instantly!

It's definately an interesting spread of entires.

One thing I don't get:
Entry E - Why are there stairs going to those towers, when they don't have doors and there's just sheer cliffs on either side (No way to walk around them)? It does look great though ...

I'd also like to ask how long it took to do all that eldar scripture on the base. That in itself it quite impressive, as far as I'm concerned.

Yes I would also like to know how that inscription was done. I would also very much like to see the scale on that Eldar thingy; for example placing a model next to it or something.

Interesting pieces, loads of variety (in my opinion).

The usual and inspiring mix of works I've come to expect on TO competitions. I myself am too lazy to create my own terrain, but certainly I recognize the need and desire for it. Each of these is playable and would enhance a game table.

yes. terrain is a quite impostant part of warhammer gaming. it's worth to spend awhile on making sure to have some terrain pieces. either create,or, the lazy way to buy scenery from GW. or mix both ways

Wow, I thought that entry B and E were on par with each other. However, both were leaps and bounds above what I could do. Every single piece is better than what I could do actually... hmm. Anywho, I still have to give props to whom made and painted the Eldar statue. Are the characters handpainted, maybe if its allowed the artist could PM me the answer? OTherwise could a mod get it and pass it on to me? I already cast my vote so... Thanks and congrats to all, absolutely phenomenal work!
