Thanks Josh for making the contest possible and for giving away such cool castle prizes. :D

Sweet, I won. I finally have the Armor Shop set and my first black sword. :D :P Thank you! Thank you! Thank you Josh! :P

Congrats to 2nd place BreadMan and his The Battle of Mistguard. Love the look of the king on the hill. It reminds me of those paintings of battles showing the champion clearly in a sea of chaos. I like the skeletons in the mud.

Congrats to 3rd place SuvieD and his Shogun Showdown which was one of my favorites(I love samurai/ninja battles). Cool idea with modified ropes for nunchucks. Awesome landscape design and a lot of good poses.

Other noted entries:
Hordesman's Pub Fight: Neat idea for a battle scene and nice bar details. Joe Vig sighting!

Erikutt's On the Edge: Cool vignette that's showing two ways to die. One by your foe and the other by falling. I like the guy that's just hanging on to the small branch.

Lego Knight's A Battle: Lava Elemental shooting flames and another cool lava terrain usage.

Sir Dillion's Outlaws Last Defense: Love the look of desperation for the peasants. Does the hostage survive? I say no. :twisted:

MattH's Viking Siege on a Beach: Another good vignette with some excellent posing and details. A nice but gruesome scene of a viking hitting the ground.

Cornice's Lion Knights vs. Dark Wizard: Monkeys shooting flames out of their mouths and soldiers turning into trees/bushes , you got to love these ideas. :lol:

Super Radz's The Arising of the Demon Azbynmop: Excellent large skeleton demon design. Me thinks the other guys are wetting their pants. Also nice skeleton rhino/scorpion looking mount creature.

Stawastawa's The Monkees: Monkeys with swords scaring away forestman. Funny stuff. :lol:

Peppermint Pig's Falcon Fortress: A little bias here since I helped him on it and he's my brother. It's just to bad we ran out of time to finish and couldn't give it a proper battle scene for it's size. Should have a new and improved version in the future.

And to the many more not listed, I thank you for the battle entertainment and many new ideas. Everyone keep up the good work, improving your building skills and keep challenging yourselves! :wink:

I actually regret that I don't have the time to look through everyone's entries - there were so many brilliant models. The three top winners were incredible, though - I love the chaos in 'Jungle Surprise', the destruction in 'The Battle for Mistguard Pass', and the slickness and skill in 'Shogun Showdown'.

In some ways, I think the Battles Contest recaptures a bit of what we've lost somewhat in the rest of the forum - the feel of honour, and pride in war, and the thrill - and horror - of battle. There seems to be a lot more focus on towns and medieval life nowadays - so it's great to see a bit of what all these cities and farms are formed on - the warriors and heroes who fought to allow them to exist.

So well done everyone - I'm looking forward to next year's contest!

- Matt

Congratulations to all the winners! If I was the judge, there would be no winner because there were so many great entries that I couldn't decide!

Thanks again for hosting this contest again Josh. There were so many good entries I am surprised I even placed this year.

I didn't take first though, so maybe next year I will pull out all the stops and try to dominate! :twisted:

MOC on!

TO BATTAL!

Congrats to all the winners, but how can a 13 year old compete against such enormous landscapes?
