While there's a few daunting entries in that field, I still wish I had gotten my squad paint in time for this. Alas, curse thy midterms ...

Best of luck to everyone. Great stuff.

I love the IF jump squad... the guardsman are painted excellently... the genestealers looked awesome and from what I can see of the terminators, they're badass too (get a better picture for these Termies!)... the Kroot pictures are atrocious

Holy cow. That new Kroot squad is amazing ...
Just, wow. Though I've seen the 'eating out of a space marine helmet' deal before, somewhere.

Many great entries. I especially like the bold blending on entry G, and the clean look of the smurfs in C and F.

Some really excellent works in there. Perhaps some are too good, which brings me to the thought that perhaps we need more than 1 class to compete in. Obviously there are some extremely talented individuals on TO, and I'd prefer to see them compete against each other rather than slam dunk against hack painters like myself.

As it is, the current batch brings me to cast my vote, not for the best technical skilled painter, but to the most original paint scheme. Thus rather than talent, I voted creativity.

Nice work everyone.

Interesting... Well, I must say that I find a lot of these entrants creative. Without mentioning names there's quite a bit of creativity. In my opinion, some of the best painted squads here lack creativity. I think the winner here will be determined by a mix of creativity/painting.
