Fly the Flag – the Results


The winner of this month’s Merit Award will now be revealed…

The scoring works like this, voters mark each entry (except their own) out of 10 for theme  (Fly the Flag) and style. These scores are added together and divided by the number of voters to create a total, average score. The highest score wins the Merit Award trophy, sponsored by Jonathan Shaw of BMF painting.

In reverse order, here are the results:

  • Entry i – Autuarch on jetbike               10.13
  • Entry F – Union Jack Eldar                  10.45
  • Entry J – Epic Dreadnaught                 11.41
  • Entry B – Mounted Colonel                  11.56
  • Entry D – Ostermark Greatswords     11.67

Highly commended entries:

  • Entry L – Divided we stand                   13.73
  • Entry K – Dragon                                    13.91
  • Entry A – Ultramarine Squad               14.15
  • Entry E – Sailor Moon Marine             15.32

Top 3:

  • Entry C – Ultramarine Banner Bearer         15.56  (3rd)
  • Entry H – Command squad vignette           16.54  (2nd)
  • Entry G – Dark Angel Banner Bearer          16.93  (1st)

That was really close, and some really high scores given out as well.

So the winner of the October painting challenge is Krystian Krawczynski with his Dark Angel Banner Bearer entry. Congratulations to Krystian! Get in touch with your details and the Merit Award trophy will be winging it’s way to you (hopefully before Christmas).
