If wars were won on painting skill, then the Imperium is screwed! All the entries are good, but the Chaos ones are just Magnificent!

Yes the Chaos ones are good. But they have so much potential. Look at all the things to paint!

I liked the Guardsman model from a bit of extra detail and the sheer amount of hard work and skill put into it. The Space Marine below it is also extremely good, but the first entry's cape took me a few seconds to realize that it was painted.

I had to look at it for a second and tell myself, "That cape is painted. It's not real." IOW, of course its painted, but it's painted so well, it looks like real, thick cloth hanging on him. The choice of colors, mixing, and trying to get that right by itself would take me hours to complete.

I have to agree with the people here. The Chaos model submissions are so far the best in this category.

Now we'll just have to see which of the Chaos models will win.

Only one thing needs to be said...Great Googly Moogly!

A tough call indeed, but eventually a few subtle things earned my vote. Like Hive Lord said, even being nominated would be a great acheivement, and well done all.

excellent models and craftsmanship. It's going to be a tight competition IMO. I agree with irishdelinquent, a "few subtle things" that made the difference and earned my vote. Great job everybody.

Well I've gone for <snip>, and as soon as I saw it on the boards I knew it would be a main contender to win (hands down imo but hey). Happy to have mine in the same category to be honest
Well done to all the others in here as there are some fine pieces of work on display.

You've been here long enough to know not to state who you voted for.
