I am very pleased to announce the results of the Golden Bat Competition 2014!

Firstly I would like to apologise, there have been a few mistakes this year on my behalf. I am trying to spend more time on the forum, however juggling this with family and work has been testing at times. For some reason I got it into my head that the voting was for one month instead of two weeks, hence the delay closing the threads. As I previously mentioned, I see no harm in allowing any votes that were made up until I closed the threads.

So without further ado, here are our winners:

VC - Painting - Master

VC - Painting - Apprentice
  • 1 @ObliviJohn - Desparity flare
  • 2 @Fallen Angel - Pietr Vãduva, Captain of the Drakenhof Guard, Personal Standard Bearer of Frederick v
  • 3 @bigbadbat - "I don't get mad, I get stabby"

VC - Converting - Master

VC - Conversion - Apprentice
  • 1 @Mioum - The Mourngul (Varghulf)
  • 2 @EternallyUndying - Shriek of Skabscrath
  • 3 @robtion - Rupture, Burrower of the Dark Woods (My thematic Zombie Dragon).

Open - Painting - Master

Open - Painting - Apprentice

Open - Converting - Master

Open - Converting - Apprentice

Special Awards
  • The Spanktastic Award - @Dogmar - Archon Cyrixis' Blood Brides (love a good bum!)
  • The Mod's Choice Award - @Bullhax - recognised by the Dark Arts Mods for the fantastic effort and growth in his painting skills on his time on CN
  • WTF Award - @Raven Torrid - Arise, Sardurion! (Zombie Dragon)
  • Nightmare Award - @robtion - The Harbinger - Mortis Engine
  • Living Doll Award - @Mr Saturday - Magog the Athach (Forge World Curs'd Ettin)
  • The Joker Award - @Mad 'At - Heinz's Chosen

Plus, we have a Golden Bat Master Medal winner - @Borgnine for winning both VC Painting and Converting categories - congratulations!

Thank you all entered and as usual we would appreciate any feedback you may have.

To the winners please note the following:

  • Mantic prizes: I will now contact Mantic to confirm the winners and get the codes, this normally does take a little bit of time, so I will PM you as soon as I receive them
  • Medals and points: The new medals have been completed, and I am just working on the new software to support them, they will show in your profile in the next few weeks
  • Where there are joint winners, monetary prizes will be split, points and medals will be awarded as normal
Here are links to the voting thread where you can see all the models entered:

Congratulations everyone who entered for getting something painted. Was great fun. I think all the winners were very deserving.

Also thanks to anyone who threw a vote my way, I am very happy about my nightmare award :konrad:

So does this mean we will get our zombies and medals back soon? If so :happy:

Congratulations to everyone involved!

Big thanks for all the votes! I never really expected that, I considered many other works better than mine and the competition was really good :)
