It brings me great pleasure to bring to a close the Sixth Army group’s first anniversary contest, now I know in contest people kinda get alienated by the results, and I don’t want any of that, I am proud of each and every contestant for taking the time and putting together what I consider to all be winning displays, your efforts are duly noted and truly appreciated. I spent a lot of time and effort on this contest, and you guys made it all worthwhile. Each and every entry that I posted brought much pleasure, the photos, the story lines were of such quality that the whole process was truly enjoyable. There were a few bumps along the way, and a couple of fix’s to make, but it was all worth it, and fun!!! In the end we have a display of talent that truly captures the spirit of this board, and the essence of the community, I’m proud to be a part of this community as well as all the staff here at the SAG. This was our way of saying thanks, you guys ROCK Very Happy

Now a little bit about the judging, the judges were hand picked by myself to represent a wide field of knowledge, In history, modeling, the 1/6tth hobby in general, and what can be done with it. I felt that these guys have some of the best eyes in the hobby and would make for a well, rounded panel of judges. The judge’s scores were submitted to me so as not to influence each other. The scoring worked like this, each judge had six different categories they had to score on:

1. Photography/Presentation
2. Movement/Action sequences
3. Realism of poses
4. Historical Accuracy/Authenticity
5. Originality/Creativity
6. Storyline

The judges then tallied their scores, and divided by six, the end score was the score they submitted to me. I then tallied the judge’s scores to get the final results. I would like thank the judges for taking their time to participate in this, you guys didn’t make It easy for them. In the end we lost one judge due to some business obligations, and time limitations on our end, but feel they all deserve a big hand for their parts they played In this, a big thanks to:

Mike/Toyrific
Vince/Tiger332
Ron/Sgt Schultz
Rick/Diewerkstatt
And Patrick/Heersbergfuhrer


You guys are the best, thank you Very Happy

Another big thanks goes out to all the people who so generously donated the amazing prize packages to help celebrate our first anniversary, their generosity is above and beyond, you guys truly ROCK and deserve a big show of appreciation, a huge thank you from the SAG!!! Very Happy

Looks like these young hobby whippersnappers are kicking our ass boys!
It truely is refreshing to know that our hobby is going to be in such capible hands. I have noticed that there are more and more younger hobbists popping up all the time. They deserve a BIG standing O for all their hard work and dedication to this hobby. My hat is off to you boys Exclamation

Lost Records, Im not a big fan of B&W Photos because most of the time I feel it hides the small details of the dio's, but your photos seem to have a certain sharp crispness which still allowed for a nice sharp detail photo, while still having the aged period look that many hobbist like. A job well done and congratulation again! Now if I can only lurer you back from the darkside and get you working for the allies Laughing Now go to Bed its past your bedtime wink

Fall Out!

Thanks BRO, I felt that the B/W pics would work best here. Maybe you can get me to the allies, I got the Sullivan figure as a price and that'll be my first American and second ally (have an almost complete Russian).

And finally, when I posted it was morning here in Sweden (GMT +1) so it wasn't bedtime but schooltime. But I just hade to check if I placed before I went to school. Laughing
