Voting Results for the 2nd Bonus Theme Round: 'Rider(s) & Mount(s)'


With this theme falling in amongst the Christmas holidays I suspected it may have a fairly sparse turnout, but I was happily proven wrong as the entries kept streaming in right up to the deadline (and a bit past). In total we had 39 participants for this round and 88 votes were cast.


As you can see by the chart above it was a very tight race right to the end, with the top seven entries not being separated by more than 12 votes, in fact we have a tie for second place! So with no further ado I will first present the runners up.

MichaelA's 'English Civil War Dragoons'



AnneO's 'Marine Scout Dinosaur Rider'



and ByronM's 'Cyberpunk on Jetboard'



In Third Place I was delighted to be given the nod with my 'Russian Civil War Tachanka'.  I'll happily add an additional 25 points to my tally.





As I mentioned above we have a tie for Second Place.  Both Burkhard's 'Ney and Staff at Waterloo' AND Alan's 'Dinotruppen' claim the silver position with their excellent entries. Fabulous work guys and congratulations! Both of you will be adding 50 points to your totals on the roster.











And last but not least, in First Place we have MartinN (Nick) with his marvellous crusader knight 'Monsieur Jaufre de Montalba'. Congratulations Nick, you will get to add another 75 points to your points roster and as a first prize you'll receive a gift certificate for products from the very talented Alf over at 'Barrage Miniatures'! Thank you Alf and enjoy your prize Nick!







Again, thanks to everyone who submitted entries and cast votes. You really make these bonus rounds great fun with your participation.

Okay! The next bonus theme is 'Victorian' so get a cup of tea, wet your brushes and 'think of England' - I need your entries by next Saturday night so have fun and get painting!

  1. Great work throughout but worthy winners.

    Do we get the points added later?

    2. But will it be enough to prevent me regaining the lead over you on Saturday? ;)

    3. Thanks Curt just need those points to try and keep Tamsin at bay LOL

      Tamsin I think you should get past me with the double hitting power of those four regiments you were talking about. The following week I should have a good points sub IF I get them finished but I doubt I can keep the pace for too long

  9. Congratulations to Nick on a thoroughly deserved win for his superb figure, and congratulations to everyone for such wonderful entries. I'm chuffed to be in the company of Burkhard in second place - many thanks! Now I would like to see Ney riding a dinosaur.

  11. "The next bonus round is 'Victorian' ... So think of England".

    Oh 'eck! I was hoping it wasn't going to be geographically specific, but more Victorian -period. So allowing me to submit some [American] Cowboys I've been painting since late December.

    1. Sorry Roy, it isn't geographically specific. I just put that in as Queen Victoria (England) is the 'spiritual' center of the Victorian period. Cowboys will work just fine. :)

    2. Roy he didn't say what or how you have to think about England.

      Delete
    3. Curt: Cheers for the clarification.
      Adam: Thinking about England gives me a headache.

      (I don't know if that humour works outside of the UK? the saying being [to a woman] lay back, close your eyes and think of England)

  14. Well done - as ever - to the participants. A truly worthy winner which brought back memories of the Elastolin figure I used to covet in Kendalls of Manchester back in the early 1970s.

  21. I'm glad it was decided via group! I won't call out my top favorites, but I usually only pick 5. For this round I couldn't select so few and had to vote for 10 entries! ;)
