It's that time again. Time for a select few to step up to the plate and claim the glory of winning a Wamp Special.

This time our esteemed sponsors were Maelstrom with their rather fantastic Banelegions range.

The nice chaps from Mansfield not only but up some great prizes for our on-line contest but also offered up some goodies for the best Banelegions entered into WAMP2011.

Sparks walked away from WAMP2011 with a Gold Trophy and 75 worth of credit for his trouble but who would take the on-line crown?

We had 8 lovely entries in the contest - a great turn out for a brand new range - some of these models only been out a few weeks.

But from those 8 we need 3 worthy winners and to select those we passed the gauntlet to Maelstrom Games themselves.

After much deliberation they sent back word of our champions. The Wamper claiming the crown of the first ever Banelegions contest is............


SPARKS!
Adam takes the online crown to go with his WAMP2011 one with his Chimera once again winning the judges over.

Hot on his heels in 2nd was non other than NECRON_99 with his version of the Chimera.

Breaking the mould with a non-chimera is a welcome return to the podium for everyone's favourite Canadian (after Celine of course) ScottRadom with his rather nice rendition of Ulric.

Sparks nabs himself another Gold Trophy and another 75 crdit @ Maelstrom - not bad going!!

Necron_99 comes away with a Silver trophy and 40 credit.

Mr Radom gets himself a Bronze Trophy and 20 credit for his efforts.

Winners can you email me your postal details and Email address's please

Just wanted to congratulate everyone that entered and especially the fantastic 3 winners - I wish I had seen the winner in the flesh the other week. Nice effort everyone; specially the kind people at Wamp and BaneLegions for making this happen.

BIG thanks to all who entered. For a small and new (but growing and aging!) range I think the turnout was fair and I'd love to see more entries next year - we'll definitly be involved again!

A few words on the entries

1st Sparks - excellent the colour contrast works really well and we loved this brighter more vivid take on the Chimaera.

2nd Necron 99 - Nice natural pallette - excellent ruined temple themed basing and the heads (lion in particular) are very well done.

3rd Scott - Ulric. Good work on the weathered metals - this guy looks like he's been through a lot!

Oni's Ulric was also very, very close to 3rd place. the different skin colour works a treat!

Microcast - Rose ; Nice frozen ice base (how'd you do that?) looks great - but the photo isn't good enough to see much of the paintwork on the mini.

Neatpete - Vagrant Knight - another good take on an alternative colour scheme - another nice natural pallette and very good base - a contender for sure.

Necron 99 Rose. I LOVE the Tim Burton style colour scheme. Something that never crossed my mind when viewing the bare resin (and even when painting my own Rose) but it fits so well and just seems so right!

Megazord man - Erec. Easily the best story told in this piece. Lots of nice little touches - the lens on the goggles, wetaher beaten tarp banner, tarnished metals and a paint job that adds character to the 'lil mono-armed dude.

Great work all around, may thanks once again to all who entered and of course to Darklord for running the show and agreeing to host the comp.

Cheers guys

Tim @ Maelstrom.

All the winners should get their prize in their Maelstrom account today - it will show as 'Moneyback' and can be spent in store.

Well done once again!

Forgot to say a big thanks to you all for organising this, and a bigger thank you to the judges again, especially for the feedback for all the entries. Depending on the releases, I can see me entering a fair few models next year! Money has arrived no probs, though spending it is a harder prospect as I'm finding it hard to commit to anything in particular!
