Are you going to inforce this rule? I think we sort of missed this rule and it seems that many people (including myself) posted more then ten pics.


I forgot about this too, and I wrote it! Well, I have to enforce it since I am sure some people followed the rules and limited themselves to ten pics. However, my intention (which wasn't clear of course) was to keep out "building in progress" pics, and no one has any of those. So the spirit of the law was obeyed. If you submitted more than ten you can delete the extra pics from your folder or page. If you don't want to do that, I will just look at the first 10 pics shown. You don't have to post a new link, they should still work.

Thanks and sorry for the confusion,
Josh

You can just look at the pictures I deep linked in my previous post. They are my favorite ones anyway. Some of the other pictures show off the terrain better but this isn't a terrain contest, terrain is only important for battle location and believabilty. I will edit my first post and add one more picture that I really like. Thanks for hosting the contest and fronting the prizes. Great work! :D

I don't thought about the 10 pictures limit, too. I reduced the pics on brickshelf so you can use the first ten for the contest.

Hey All,

I have the winning entries narrowed down to the winning three. Now I just have to figure out which one comes in first! Geez, never thought the winners would be this close!

Hey Nathan,

I suppose I will forgive you this time. But don't let it ever happen again! ;)

Jens, just how many minifigs do you have on that scene? Looks like it classifies in the "Apocalyptic" scale of the BattleScenes Contest; 1,000 or more minifigs.

Congratulations to the winners and thanks to all of you who entered! I was very happy and surprised with the number of entries. I think I will do this again next year. If you won a prize, please PM me with your mailing address, so that I can send it your way.

I hope the same thing...I mean, my 20 guys aren't really an army, right? :wink: :P

BTW, that gargoyle had them all for lunch...more men...must get more men...
