ok here goes:

Plarzoid 8/10
nicely painted little piece. I think pushing the hilights more would make it pop that bit better.

The WaggaMonster 7/10
Another great piece, I have commented elsewhere on this in more detail. Lovely sheer effect. I think a stronger base would push her up a notch

Good work folks

Plarzoid 8/10
I like her eyes and the wood detail on the staff. The red is pretty solid as well. Nice job

Wag - 7.5/10
The sheer effect is really good. The skin might need some more shadowing, but I have the same issue with judging that. I would have liked to see more of a close up of her face to see the eyes. From what the picture looks like to me, they look square, but I could be wrong as well. Still an excellent job on the piece.

Plarzoid: 8.0 I love the staff, some nice details. Maybe some attention to the base?

Wag: 8.0 I can't dwell on the flaws too much (base and need for further highlighting) because the sheer effect is boss.

Plarzoid - 7.5/10
Good work, in general. I especially like the glowing runes. As Darklord said, some more contrast would benefit this model. I can see that's not easy, on a smooth miniature like this, though. Also try to get the contrast to play to your benefit. More contrast where you want focus; right now the pink seems to pop more than the rest, probably due to brighter highlights, which is a little distracting. Your base also could use a little more cleanness and some richness in contrast and colour.

Waghorn - 7/10
As I said earier (I think on your WiP thread), you've shown great improvements in this model in comparison to your last. More feedback in that specific post. :smile:

Great work, both!

Wag 6- Overall good work

Plarzoid - 7
I like the painting very much, hate the choice of mini, though...

Wag - 8,5
I think it's one of your better paintjobs, mate. The see-through blouse is great.

I dont like the mini but its painted well enough, nice paint job for the style will give this 7/10

This is a strong PJ from you mate it made me want to try the same mini, the sheer effect won it for me 8/10

Plazord: 6. I like what you did with this mini, the glowing runes and the eyes especially. Everything else has already been said.

Wag: 7. The sheer effect sold me on this mini, as well as what looks like freehand. The face imo could use some cleaning up but honestly I didn't notice that until I looked at it with a more critical eye.

Voting is very close on this, keep the numbers rolling in wampers.

Thanks for the enthusiasm on the sheer and freehand - the sheer was easy, the freehand much more demanding.

sheer is easy? lol show off!!:tongue:

Plarzoid: 7
Clean lines and colors, befitting the mini. Nice wood-grain on the staff.

Wags: 6.5
A more challenging mini to paint, IMO. Definitely score points for the free-hand. I think a little more shading and lining would bring out the character of the model even more. Steady improvement.

Nice contest, guys. Thanks for keeping the Ladder active!

Wow, guys, it's a flat tie right now!

sheer is easy? lol show off!!:tongue:
everything is Easy for the Wag.

Some say he once gave birth to a Pilot Whale while playing Table Tennis.
Or that he destroyed the Spanish Armada by simply stroking his eyebrows.

All we know is he's called The Wag!

Alright, it's been a week. Thanks everyone for the voting and feedback.

By my count, it's a tie - 65.5 to 65.5!

01-05-2014, 08:06 PM
We can't have a tie on the ladder!

Therefore I claim victory by virtue of a double hit; genre and a sexy woman in a see through dress - the fantasy of many a red-blooded male

01-05-2014, 08:15 PM
LOL Wag strikes!!! POW right in the kisser lol

I'll see your double an raise you one more...

Genre, "fiery" girl, and glowy runes + staff with embedded gem for magic, one of the defining features of fantasy.

Beyond that, I got nothin'. :D

why cant you have a draw?

03-05-2014, 05:23 PM
Not saying you can't have a draw, but here's secondary challenge to determine the absolute winner. :smile:
You each get one more hour to work on this. Make the best use of the criticism you received, to improve it as much as you can in sixty minutes. Have a second round of voting, not for the best miniature, but for the largest improvement. Could be fun, and let you end up with even greater miniatures!

14-05-2014, 05:24 PM
The Darklord has spoken, we have a draw (cue wailing and gnashing of teeth)

Can we have the ladder updated - and maybe a link to it so we can see who is where as I can't seem to find it...

wag can be found huddled in a corner sticking pins in a voodoo doll and muttering 'revenge my precious, we must have it mustn't we...'

15-05-2014, 09:21 PM
ladder updated.

heres the link wag:

23-05-2014, 09:17 PM

23-05-2014, 09:27 PM
you can always ask vegascat to destroy the ladder again...

23-05-2014, 10:05 PM
He could, but I think DL would skin me alive :D :11_002:
