Good luck to eveyone and it is good to see some retro models.

Wow Thats some wicked stuff!
To whoever made steal legion -> man I haven't seen them in a WHILE!

In fact Thats one of the most rich, in the perspective of variety, competitions I have ever seen.
Usually people just paint same old stuff. This time I finally see some new cool stuff!

Steal legion entry -> Damn... thats some astonishing basing! Just simply brilliant! I would add more ash/dirt/blood on them but its still all good!!!!! And pose? and Uniform?! Can you say no? Thats just awesome!

Assassin... not the vindi (*) Man that some amazing Stuff! Weapons are the real sweet! Every power/energy weapon can be improved a bit after looking at that! Of course the muse of posing left that model empty, just like my next fav.

And finally last but not least -> Scorpions! Darn that is just amazing! I can say that may they are TOO bright, and posing need some "inspiration" (hint, convert/pose them, hint ) BUT all that aside! Can you believe that there is no mistake in a paint job? None! (may be some better high lights but thats insignificant) I mean there is slaps some times, or color over color on many entries and all but these... There is 9 models and all painted, cleaned from mold and based without any flows! That is just brilliant! Do you have a mechanical arm or something? I mean that just perfect consentration!

For the rest-> GOOD LUCK TO ALL! thanx to all entries, - the more variety is better! I like that competition has one of the best varieties and one of the toughest opponents! I do not regret entering! I am proud to be in this competition!

P.S. To vindi - > Although I totally admit his paint job is top notch! He is fairly common, You could convert him... like sitting on a tree/building/ruin/whatever or some other stuff

Walk Tall everyone!!!!!

- What man is a man who doesn't make this world a better place?
- Definitely, mostly not about the girl.
- I should only kill people after I get to know 'em?
