All right, the ballets are in. Sorry about the lateness of the judging...it was so difficult, with all the amazing, butt kicking entries! Seriously, to all who entered, give yourselves a huge round of applause, the quality of this year was just unbelievable. The contest is always a small one (pun intended) but the skill in it is never such. Thank you to all who entered, and thank you to the truly awesome prize givers, wobnam in particular.

Alright, on to the winners.

In the Miniature Set category, the two runner-ups are:

Nanuck95 with his version of 6073 - Knights Castle.


Image

Griffon with his version of 6080 - King's Castle.

Image

And the winner of the category:

Bartosza6m with his version of 6081 - King's Mountain Fortress.


Image

For the main category, the runner-ups are:

Marcosbessa with his Running up that Hill:


Image

Wunztwice with his Micro Lego Castle:

Image

Mahj with his Temple:

Image

Third place goes to:

TooMuchCaffeine with his Kingdom in a Box:


Image

Second place goes to:

Darkspawn with his Firbolg Keep:


Image

And First place goes to:

Weasel47 with his Castle on the Lake:

So there we go. Your winners for the Mini Castle Contest V. Winners, please contact me with your mailing addresses. Everyone else, please give the winners a big round of applause.

Wow! All well deserved winners, congrats to all of them! There were certainly some interesting and useful techniques I spotted this go-around :twitch: I don't know if I can keep up with all of this...

At any rate, I never envied you your choices Dan, but I think you've done very well in picking!

I must say what really blew me away this year was Mahj's castle but looking back through this topic I see so many incredible creations it's not even funny! Worthy winners and runner ups in both cathegories - Congrats to you! - and a most worthy and devouted judge and organizer as well. My hat off to you, Dan!

You people are most welcome.

I'd say that pretty much wraps up this year's contest. Admins, feel free to set this thread loose.
