Some fantastic entries.

But is it just me, or is entry 15 not showing up?

Edit: Just quoted your post and it is a photobucket image, so I can't see it at work

Will vote when I get home and can see everything.

Gave #3 the vote, #7 looks good but the photographs aren't good enough to appreciate the painting.

I agree, #3 is much better overall. I like the work of #7 but carefull study shows a better paint job on #3. Cleaner, crisp.

I think #3 is definitely the best entry with a decent sized photograph.

I kinda agree with Lbursley from the other thread. If the entry didn't meet the rules of the competition which were slathered all over the rules thread, I think it should be out.

Entry 7 is geat and all, but I very much doubt it was censored by the person who entered it.

That said, I voted for the one that looks like it was taken in Lbursley's lightbox. The armor wash helped to pick it out as well.

Well, I can say that the "censored" was intentional by the user especially to meet the guidelines.
He didn't want to give away the planet or anything else, so the "censored" was used.
And I'm very sure Yakface and Daggermaw made 100% sure that all entries do meet the rules.

Both #3 and #7 are at the top of my list - I wish #7 had a better photograph although the execution of the mini diorama and backstory is excellent.

Great job to all that participated !

Ooh, I thought we needed to paint a whole squad of DW to enter, would have done one myself otherwise! Guess I should read the rules next time.

Voted for 14, there has obviously been a lot of time spent on painting it to that standard and the colours are very smooth (I also think I know who painted it )

Good luck to everyone in the contest!

Hey guys just to clear some things up. All entries met the guidelines. The censoring in 14 was done by the entrant. Also I uploaded the pics to the dakka gallery so if you want to zoom in you can. Except for 15 which I couldn't load for the life of me. And don't worry I will remove your pics from my gallery once the contest is over so you can upload them to your galleries.

#7 -VS- #3

No #7 is clearly the winner. If he doesn't get the win I'll be angry for him lol. The skill is obviously there, and the dio is epic. It's almost too nice, like it took months to make. Look at the blending and OSL, and it carries to all the models.

And #3 is nice at a glance but zooming in revealed some sloppy brush work (bolter barrel highlight, on left guy). The white background makes the pictures blown out. Sternguard look badazz in general so that helps.

Why these 2 have been almost tied since voting has been up is beyond me. #7 though grainy on the zoom pictures let me see enough to cast my vote.

Come on people.

The pic for entry #7 is too low-res to distinguish how good the painting is, and as far as I can tell I must disagree with Bursley and say that as far as I CAN see entry #3 is the best painted.

Shame to see that only 2 enteries really seem to have some real time and effort put into painting of the minis.

OK maybe I am missing something. Please explain to me why you are voting for 3 and 7.

I agree that they look the best from a painted standpoint. But what experimental weapons do they display?

4, 9 and 10 may not be painted as nicely but they do have a weapon that seems more experimental (or non standard issue from the model line).

And before anyone jumps down my throat about my comment. 1) I do not have any entry in this contest.
2) I think everyone did a really good job who did enter.

I am just basing my comments on the experimental weapon aspect of the contest.

Kudos to the artist that competed.

And my appologies to anyone who takes offense at my comment. It is not intended. I may be missing something.

Hello Da_Viking,

a pretty good question indeed.
But on the other hand it seems it's a matter of interpretation. You seem to emphasize the experimental armament for Deathwatch, while others may get a different idea.
I think it depends on which part of the competition rules you concentrate on.

Now its your turn to show us some real Deathwatch Marines. Show us the unique nature of the Deathwatch, what makes them the best individual Space Marines around.

Some may think it's the armament, some may think its simply the armor, some may think it's their morale and attitude...
Some of the entries concetrate on the armament, some "simply" concentrate on the armour, some on their "epic" pose, and some on the "desperate situation".
I think all of these aspects are valid, none is entirely wrong.
I mean a "hero" doesn't simply become a hero because he has the newest and most devastating weapon, he may become a hero because he's fighting frightening odds, or is acting bravely in a desperate situation
Just my very personal 2C

Hello Klaus;

Thank you for that great response.

From the Challenge Rules I Quote: They use advanced and often experimental or unique weapons..

So that was the basis for my view on this competition.

I guess my interpretation is different from others.

I have voted for my favorite. Based on how I read the rules.

Thanks again.
