So the finals judging for this Dakka Painting Challenge has been completed and winners have been selected from amongst the five finalists chosen by the public voting.

A great big thanks to everyone who took the time and effort to participate...this was definitely one of the more challenging challenges we've done and it was fantastic to still get a great number of entries.

Although we originally announced that only 3 people would be getting a prize, our sponsor for the challenge miniwargaming.com was so blown away by all the amazing entries that we have been able to give away prizes to ALL the five finalists plus a best 'runner-up' category as well. Not to mention the prizes are considerably larger than originally announced!

So a huge thanks goes out again to miniwargaming.com for their tremendous generosity towards the Dakka community. Make sure you check out their site the next time you're interested in buying anything miniature game related.

But without further adieu, let's get onto announcing the winners shall we!

As always, you can click on the images below to see larger versions of them in the Dakka gallery. Winners will be notified via PM as to how to claim their prize.

The title is supposed to be a reference to Anakin and Obi-wan's duel, meaning one of them betrayed the other.

Wow, I didn't get the reference, but it makes sense now.

Great entries and congrats to the winners (and participants!) of such a cool contest
