Once again, apologies for the delay - this was supposed to be a light semester, but it went dark pretty soon!

Sorry to hear you're out but I get real life interrupting. Looking forward to seeing all the great entries!

Vanvlak, has your world calmed down at all?  Chomping at the bit to see all of the finished entries.

Rumours of my death are greatly exaggerated.
Hopefully today.

Right, the heats are finally up, three groups, the three winners go to a final - keeping it small in duration also.
Voting will stay open two weeks for round one heats; and then I'll set up the final.

I owe a big apology to all for the delay - as explained previously, work got badly in the way, and I had a month of bad migraine bouts to make it worse. I hope I missed no-one's entry; pic image sizes should be fine, and I also hope I used the right pics!
I didn't finish my own project, it's still undercoated, but I'll get there soon I hope. Too late for the competition of course.

Enjoy the show - there's some really cool and high quality stuff; if I were to pick liberally, I have at least six favourites (and counting), so voting is (as usual) tough.
Good luck to all, and thanks for taking part, competitors.

Thank you for all the time & effort you have put into this.
Don't worry about apologizing for real life mucking up toy soldiers, it happens to us all.

Good luck everybody.

Thanks all - it's fun, setting up the competition votes is something I enjoy.
I'm only sorry it too so long this time.  :D

I think we can probably move onto the next stage; I have been looking at the vote tallies for the last few days and only one vote has been cast since Thursday.

I agree - but wasn't around much - onto the next round with post haste then.
The final round of voting is up, voting ends today week, Sunday December 10, at 12:00 GMT.
Good luck to all, congratulations to the finalists, an eclectic collection from very different settings. And well done and thanks to all participants for all the cool entries.  :D

And it's over, with Ichwillauch taking first with the Old West cabin  :D
Congratulations on winning this, all the details in that little build are great. Congratulations to McMordain and Codsticker, the other finalists, and to all who took part.  8)

Yes indeed, congrats to all, but most importantly thanks to Vanvlak for being good/daft enough to organise it, it is appreciated, even by those of us who didn't get beyond the first round!

That cabin is a wonderful piece. Amazing the amount of detail Ichwillauch packed into a such a small footprint. Congratulations on a well deserved victory!
