    Voting was once again quite challenging. I had to really scrutinize to get down to the 4, but honestly everyone did a terrific showing that made it to the finish line. Well done all! Rep is on its way if I haven't already repped you.

    Hoel, Bohunk, ukgpublishing, and Nomadic.

    Hoel's image is a superior example of draughtsmanship, and yet it's still beautiful. It is rare enough that technical excellence meets artistic merit; this is what it looks like.

    Bohunk's entry is a perfect example of the old-world style; I wouldn't mind having this one hanging on my wall at all.

    ukgpublishing's entry has some technical flaws, but as a battlemat, it is by far the most useful entry for gaming. I'd like to see some more time taken to resolve the compositing issues, so that the objects become a part of the scene, rather than looking like they've simply been pasted down on it.

    Finally, Nomadic's entry is clean and attractive, and it has a strong and unique style of its own. The colors are particularly appealing to me. It would be good if the type was a bit more legible. It is not easy to read this map at a glance, though at full scale that might not be as much of an issue.

    Well done everyone!

    Post I've got a top four on favorites, but...

    I've definitely got my own top four contenders, here, but it might be best if I abstained from voting this month, since I am the prize provider. It would be unfair for the "prize provider" to select whom should receive that prize - so I won't do it.

    However, I will mention: Hoel, Bohunk, UKGPublishing and Munks were my favorites.

    Good luck to everyone!

    Hoel's map is great; clean and slick looking and I love East Tharduur and its antique look. Steel General's mountains are fantastic and IndustryGothica's map is also very well put together.

    Damn! Wish I had found a way around the upload problems; I just couldn't get any decent version of my map onto the net. That will teach me to start with 12000 x 12000 pixels. Still, you live and learn.

    It was pretty easy choice for me, only real problem was between Steel General and ukgpublishing but the Zs won this time... I told you I wanted a rimfall SG!
    I voted:
    -ukgpublishing: For the Z! I just love zombies...
    -Monks: It's a great project, and I'd love to have that in print too. If you win I request that GP puts it in the inventory and figures out how to ship to sweden
    -Bohunk: Old classic atlas. If I had only one vote, this would be it. Superb
    -Ascension: One of the coolest styles in this challenge. I want a tut

    There we go.
    I'm feeling lucky!

    Well you wanted a cannon too, but you didn't get that either, did you?

    This was a bit difficult this month - unfortunately I sneezed in the middle of voting and accidentally hit the submit button - so I only voted for 3; Hoel, Bohunk & Monks.

    My 4th vote (pre-sneeze), would've went to Ascension.

    EDIT: Repped everyone but Monks, who I probably recently repped in the ME-DEM thread.

    I went with Bohunk cuz I'm a sucker for a well done antique style; Hoel for the technical skill; IG because I'm also a sucker for a well done artistic style; and Monks for the sheer amount of effort and stick-to-it-tiveness.
