Wish I could have entered this, really looking forward to seeing the entries though. Any idea if there'll be more of these in the future?
p.s. will we see all the entries in the hall of fame or just the winners?

As always my friend Smile

So, yes, there will be places 1, 2 and 3, honorable mentiones (noteworthy submissions), and further entries (aka the rest). Altogether every entry will be shown.

I just wanted to wish everybody luck. I'm really looking forward to seeing all the entries.

There are some great modellers/painters on this forum so I imagine the quality will be excellent.

Hey guys!

Just a little update on Golden Tom #1!

We have had a little trouble getting the submission folder to the last 2 judges (the zipped file just kept screwing up), so this has caused a slight delay. I am still eagerly waiting for the last 2 judges to submit their votes. Let it be said that their votes will be crucial as we are having a tie for GOLD and BRONZE! Smile

Hopefully their votes will tip the ballance Wink

Until very soon!
Cheers,
Admin Tom

Heeeey guys! Smile

Sorry to strech your patience that much, but this is hopefully the very last update before the winners can be announced for good! (And believe me, it will be worth it!).

What I can say so far is that we have a BRONZE. cheers

However, after the last judge's votes came in, the points shifted (again!) and we now have a tie for no less than GOLD.

So I have called out a "Lightning round" (or "Knock-out" round) to determine which of the 2 entries will take Gold and which Silver. The judges have been asked to vote for only one of those 2 entries. The one with most votes will take 1st place, the other automatically taking silver.

Thank you for your patience guys!
It really is so hard to decide what the best minis are (even for 6 judges!) which only goes to show what a wonderful job you have all done.

I'll talk to you guys very soon!
--Admin Tom

PS: During our little delay, I haven't been idle. In fact, apart from battling with buggy emails and .zip files of the submissions, I have used the little extra time to pimp the medal icons a little, with the invaluable help of our gif-master matt Smile So the wait will be all the more worthwile.

Indeed it could!!! Very Happy But I am really hoping it won't! Unfortunately no system is perfect.

(Oh but I don't think it will get settled tonight... although 4/6 votes are already in...).
