Just 10; I'm afraid my tenure has brought the lowest number of entries in the BSC over the past years, although I get the impression when the pics come up you'll all feel you're judging Golden Deamon :D
Even I didn't get mine done on time, although I wasn't going to include it anyway.
Three hours to go (anxiously checks calendar to make sure....) and the time is up.
Voting: soon - maybe by this evening if I manage to sort out the pics and vote posts.
I need to decide whether to have two stages (5 and 5, and then a final between the two best) or have it out straight away with all ten against each other in a single round.

10 entries is not bad at all, especially not considering the quality work we are about to see. And it is not your fault, Vanvlak, that bums like me have pulled out.

Two stages of five and five then a duke out between the winners would be best I reckon  :)

Nearly there!  :o
I think 10 entries is a respectable total, and a nice number for people to judge between.  Too many entries and people would get bored halfway through viewing them  ;)


As far as voting goes, 10 is a slightly awkward number to start with, if you begin with 1vs1 you quickly end up with an odd number of entries and things get messy. A battle royale style every entry in one round does give a solid verifiable ranking of 1-10, but if voters only get to cast one vote each it could look quite imbalanced.
I ddon't know how feasible it is but in a battle royale  I'd like to see each voter get to vote for their top three choices, first place getting 3 points, second place getting 2 points and third place 1 point, or a similar system, helping to lower the chances of anyone (me) scoring a zero  :P

However it happens, I just want to see the models
