I am less than impressed with the works, but I think bad photos did their job too :twisted:

In the next few days better images will pop up on CMON and other sites, then we can judge this better.

I'm not really impressed, but it might be the pictures yes.

I saw this on the day, I have to say it is nice. I cant see how or why it won, as there were better minis that didn't make it into the top 3 in its category. BTW mine is the Tretch Craventail on the GW site.

I'm not saying mine should have won anything(it didn't) but it made first cut, there were entries that IMO were far superior. The guy who won, won around 4-5 demons, he was very shocked to win so many let alone the sword.

Pictures probably don't do any of those minis justice, but from what I see and not commenting on the painting and just the originality of the entries I find most uninspiring...

I didn't see all of the awards, as I took advantage of the time to get some goodies from Forge World, the queues were just stupid all day.

I will try and find out and get back on here to post up.

What I am saying, in a light hearted way as to not offend too much, is that you are on the whole very negative about a lot of peoples work. I for one saw the minis and came away feeling very inspired. I agree the pictures don't do some of the people minis justice, but to say that the originality is uninspiring is, I think unfair. Remember this is a painting competition not a how can you convert the mini so it is nothing like the original. I think what would be better is yes say you find them uninspiring, but then state why, and maybe what could be done to rectify this. It turns your comments from being critical to being constructive. I would imagine people would appreciate it...I would.
