Give-away results




OK there's been time enough for all the people who wanted to enter the competition to do so. Now is the time to decide who is winning the most sought after reward of all : an unloved model modelled and painted by no other than me with the winner's touch.

Having received nuemrous propositions, I've decided to list them in an Excel Sheet. Why would I do that?, well I'm a engineer during daytime so numbers the lies you can get out of them is part of my job and skills so I guess it came as the way to go for me. That and it is very convenient to actually draw a winner from the list.

Sooooo, here are the entries and their associated propositions :



Looking at the Charts you probably realise that some models inspired the contestants more than the others : 



 But let me show you in a more graphic fashion :

Everybody loves a good pie chart right? No? Ah OK, guess my love of numbers is not shared by all...

Funny to see Aenur and the imperial preacher were the 2 most wanted models with the Slaanesh Daemonette a close 3rd.

So maybe you'll like how I chose a winner ?

Oh yes you're right, with Excel's random command (that's the french version but I'm pretty sure the english one has it too :D)




 Just add a little database search in here...

And we're good to announce the winner! (simple as that).

All it took was a lunchbreak of typing and a few formulas here and there, why give the task to an anonymous online random generator! 

I have to say if I had a D25 I would have obviously opted for it but I'm pretty sure you'd have missed the pie chart even though you won't admit it.

Well you must have understood by the heavy Spoilers in the pictures above who the winner is . I am very happy that Mr Gates via his microsoft software decided to award Warlord Paul of this random because though I've had very friendly contact with most people on the list above, he's been a very enjoyable person to deal with via all this blog/forum/facebook/interwebz thing. (that and his proposition is one of the rare I can actually achieve in a reasonable amount of time...). 
I'm also very happy that the model to get some love is one of those which would have been the least likely to get some attention from me so it's actually a triple win !!!

Now I have to find a way to tie this :



This...



And this :


 You can see there is already a little idea spawning here...

I've actually strated prepping and basing the model and there should be just some little conversion job to make this one look good...

Next post will probably be about another Rogue Trader adventurer OR maybe about the Grey Sensei I'm building for BOYL2014... Only time will tell...

    1. Well, I've thought of something inspired by Iron Maiden's "Stranger in a strange land" and I think it will work nicely if I manage to make it right...

    1. There will be a little convesrion job and some clever painting but I think it is quite an achievable one.

      Thanks Jonah!

  5. Congratulations to Warlord Paul!

    I can't imagine how you'll manage to use that theme on this model, so it will be fun to see the result. It certainly seems like a challenge.

    Personally I'm hoping for a neon pink hoverboard like in Back To The Future 2 :p

    1. It all depends on the gunslinger/time traveller ratio in the end !

      Don't expect WIP shots this time, I want the winner to have a full surprise so pics will only come when he gets his reward!

      I was hoping noone would mention the neon pink hoverborad... might keep this for later... ;)

      Thanks

    1. Je dois avouer que j'étais soulagé d'échapper à certaines idées périlleuses mais k'avoue que certaines d'entre elles dont la tienne m'ont inspiré et pourrait très bien voir le jour. Je pense ce serait le parfait moyen de me sortir de ma zone de confort.

      Partie remise? ;)

      Merci à toi.

    1. No pressure on me! It's not like everyone expects me to make something worthy for Paul now... Oh and it's not like If I was foolish enough to try to nail it before BOYL to give it to him in person...

  10. Dear Sir,

    I've nominated you for a Liebster Blog award. This award is a way of highlighting blogs that we think are worth reading and that we'd like to share with others. The nominee is asked to answer some questions about themselves and others and nominate five other blogs that they think are worth reading. The idea is that it's a fun way of discovering new blogs and introducing them to readers who haven't come across them before.

    You'll find the questions and what I wrote about your blog here http://joyandforgetfulness.blogspot.ie/.

    Thanks again for all your work and keep blogging!

    Regards,

    Conrad Kinch.

      regards
