Fantastic work! Over the next few days I will be in touch with the winners, issue out medals etc. That will also include issuing zombie points to the winners.

Finally, keep your eyes peeled as over the next week we will be revealing the all new design for next year's GB. With more chances at awards, and more ways to enter it means everyone whether they are master painters or not have a chance at winning.

Cheers

They where all fantastic entries, so hope everyone will try again for next one.
I do have one thing that would be awesome if forum software would allow to vote a personal top 3 because there are a lot of good entries. It gives a more spread out vote, or a closed vote so you don't auto vote for a winner because influence you get to vote for winner or underdog, if you what I mean.

Good to see both candidates I voted for made it into the top three in their categories; means I'm not getting senile/out of touch with P&M! xD

Congratulations all. A well deserved victory.

Thanks for the voucher code DoN, it seems i am having a problem with the order. I use the code and the discount is applied normally, but when i click the Purchase button it won't load. Maybe have to wait and try again later.

Splendid entries all round. This has been by far the best GB to date in terms of quality (I know this because I have gone on a hunt to find the previous GB threads :lol: ).

Well done to everyone!

Congratulations to the winners!
To everyone else that participated, even though you didn't win, by taking part in this contest you permitted us a glimpse of your own creativeness, so thank you! The GB wouldn't have been as good without all of you posting!

Once again great job everyone and grats to all the winners. This was my first Golden Bat competition so I don't know how good the standard usually is but I'm really impressed by the quality of the entries. Hope to see everyone enter another model next year.

Congratulations to the winners! I couldn't resist Bigcannons Wight King either and voted for him as well, he's so damn impressive and really reminds me of a Mark Gibbons painting, I love it! THe other two were equally impressive so choosing was hard 8)

My personal favourite for the conversion category, the dreg, didn't make it to the top 3 but I do love these winners. A lot of work and ingenuity went into the winners' conversions!
