Thank you all for your votes on my models,
One letdown was the Gold in Historical Vehicle. Why would a first place be a let down? Because it was the only entry. I'm hoping that next year, particularly with all the great tank kits available, that there'll be a whole bunch of entries. Some competition to help drive an improvement in my painting.
BUT, the biggest letdown of all was being awarded the Silver in Historical Single category at the show, only to find out this morning that I hadn't won it at all. It seems that the wrong slides were put into the presentation and I was actually amongst the trophies. I must admit I agree with the "actual" list of winners and they truly deserve their awards, but it doesn't lessen the disappointment I'm feeling right now. I know mistakes happen in the rush at the end, I've made one or two myself in the past when running Golden Demon, but perhaps it's the nudge I needed to steer me clear of competitive painting and keep busting out armies. Hmmmm... decisions, decisions.
Head to Cool Mini or Not to check out all the entries and the final winners in each category. Lovely stuff all round.
PS. My minis and lights are going back to the east coast on the Battlefront truck, via next weekend's Chicago wargames show Little Wars, so I won't have too many new photos until wednesday of next week, although I might post a few of the Adepticon action between now and then.
