This was really, really hard. I'm pretty sure I know who's going to win. To the Harlequin painter--should've used a more drab background so all the vibrant colors show up more, but still, that's a wickedly steady hand you've got.

To help myself along, I decided to look at the basing jobs and extra detail. Took me a few minutes of very close-looking, but I have voted.

Some nice models there. Hopefully one day mine will be in the master category; something to strive for. It will be hard to pick just two. I hope this new system encourages just as many entries in the coming months.

Hmm...am I the only one who reckons that the Novice category could have been a bit smaller and the Master category a bit bigger? You could say that it makes the Master's category less "exclusive", which is fair enough, but I dunno.

Very nice work guys, there are two which stand out for me, but there will be some close runners up I'll warrant!

Even the Novices are fairly good. I think some stand out from the others as though there are 2 categories here at the same time.

I think all of them look very nicely painted and it was hard to pick.

That Kaskrin entry really shouts out to me, there is something very "early 90s" 40K to it- the warning stripes on the hellgun mounted chainblade, the reflective visor, very old-skool cool! Harks back to the days when each IG trooper had a very unique look and feel, as opposed to the 'faceless crowd' we now have.

Nice mix of colours too.
