Looks interesting! A good start.
It's been more than a week after deadline. I'm eager to reveal my miniature. So when can we start voting @Rikard ?
Apologies about this, I will have them popped up tomorrow.
Hit a foul point as all my green stuff got moved and placed on top of a radiator....it's wonderfully denatured now, so have been trying to get replacements.
Exciting. Can't wait to vote!
That sucks, sorry to hear it.
Today is the day!
I almost entered something myself, but it was too small of a project to be taken seriously.
I'm typing it out as I type this message.
Lots of great entries! Congrats to all who entered and good luck.
Thank you @Rikard for putting on such a great contest. I love seeing all the great work which you have inspired others to make.
My votes are in!! (first one to vote)
Good work every one sorry for my absence wanted to enter something myself but haven't got around to it yet hopefully next time
There, I too gave my votes... and apparently, I voted for the ones that are already in the first and second place.
Small updates, updates, updates.....
So, things went to hell in a handbag here, tons went wrong and then from bad to worse, to simultaneously stubbing the big toe on your right foot whilst standing on a lego brick with your left.
Funerals off island, work issues (despite having moved division) and finally the icing on this disaster sundae, the prizes got wrecked.
Worse than wrecked, un-salvagable.
I'm torn between severe frustration and head against wall irritation, especially after all my talk of being proactive.
I'm off to Japan for two and a bit weeks this coming Friday, I badly need the break, but the timing couldn't have been worse with all this going on, as it means (excluding what I do this week, which won't be much), that I won't be able to start sorting replacements until I get back.
I know there must be a considerable number of you who are disappointed, there's not a huge amount I can do on this one.
If anyone is unhappy and doesn't want to wait for a prize, drop me a PM and I'll sort out a suitable replacement (such as a voucher for a miniature website, or similar).
Sometimes things just go wrong. Everyone is happy that you put on a great contest and I'd imagine that all prize winners will be only to happy to wait (we Lizards are supposed to be a patient bunch... you know, cold-blooded and all).
Take a break and enjoy Japan. (I've been contemplating a trip to Japan myself... it's between Japan, Switzerland or Hawaii).

Hmmmm voucher or wait for a unique sculpted weapon or similar from a very talented person, no brainer voucher please
Enjoy Japan and when you get back take your time with the replacements, and next time you run a comp give me a shout and I will help you setup the thread etc
Many thanks, it's been a difficult time, but I'm officially off tomorrow and out to Japan.
Take care one and all while I'm gone.
Thanks for putting together this competition, I really enjoyed the entries! And I think everyone will understand if the prizes take longer than anticipated.
Hello, hello everyone!
Back from Japan, awesome places, awesome people, awesome times.
Starting to work on the pieces now, I should also have some additional good news for many of you soon too, I will keep you all updated on this one as and when I can and am permitted to.
Love the Salamander, not been a fan of the GW oop and newest styles (looks ill)
@Rikard give us a clue to the weapon your making, please, pretty please
Your clue: it's "an elegant weapon... for a more civilized age".
