Oh, man, that sucks! I hate it when that happens.

My favorite contests are the Hordelings ones, where the winner is determined by a random die roll. I sometimes suspect they all work that way, but at least they ADMIT it over at Hordelings....

Ironlightsabers (the obi durge speeder customs) was a nice set up, i was a bit disapointed that one with a lot of customs and repaints won. If it was a contest for re-paints and customizations etc... but it was form the description about set ups, and not customizing and painting...

I'd love to see the scores, to see where i stood. Hopefully at least 1 of mine will make it to the runners up "so in the weeks leading up to Star Wars Celebration IV we'll be showing off some of the runner-up entries here on the Star Wars Miniatures web site."...

Pretty Kool! Surprised they posted your pics that had mostly mastermaze stuff...so they must have surmised that those MM set-ups were creative enough to show even though it wasn't totally "scratch built" That's the right call of course!

Great Stuff!

Before i used the MM i had asked about stuff like that, they said they didn't care what was used as terrain/scenery. And looking at some of the other ones theres a lot of non scrath built. Toys, model stuff, even some "war gamming" terrain.

That guy (DJ?) who did the Geonosis stuff had a pretty cool entry. It wasn't nearly as "sophisticated" as yours, since it involved much less stuff and was less "creative" - he didn't "invent" anything, just did a movie scene with some Hasbro toys for terrain. Still, it LOOKED cool, and I have to admit, it really showed off the minis line well. Seeing the arena battle, with the beasts charging at Obi-Wan and Anakin and Amidala, and all the jedi and Geonosians and clones battling in the background - it was a really neat shot.

Still, I'm really surprised you didn't win. Your stuff was so intense, and some really beautiful shots in there. Ah well.

cool -

Foamcore is a paper-faced styrofoam product, usually 1/4" thick overall. You probably will NOT find it at Lowes or HD; try Michaels/AC Moores/or your local Artists Supply store.
Lowes/HD will have regular Styrofoam, in various thicknesses from 1/2"-4", in roughly 4'x8' sheets, or in 2'x8' sheets. They may also have fan-fold 1/2" x 4' x 12', fanned along the 12' side. Bring MONEY.

wicked cool The rocks are from the thick foam styrofoam insulation, the blue or pink stuff you can find at Lowes, Homedepot, or other home supply/DIY stores (not sure the Brit version of what they are called if your from there). Or some of them are packing stuff, the foam coar is relativly thin.

Oh i admit some of these, even the non finalists (the runners up) look great and i could see some of them beating me, the ones using toys, or what ever i kind of prefer some of them over the one i know that made it in. The thing about the one i know that made it which annoys me is that one had a lot of custom minis and repaints. I think all of the customs really don't show off the minis, or game (you can't use them in the game etc, you can't buy them) and shows off the guy's customization painting skills which this wasn't a contest for. That's my only complaint about it. I think it looks great in design and construction of the lay out, just don't like all of the "illegal" from the "game standpoint".
