Congrats, well deserved! I personally loved @Reaver 's Djinni take on the giant theme, and @Oxymandias; your entry is vicious in just the right way! I love your northern version of our twisted kind and I’m looking forward to seeing more of 'em! :cd1991gif: :hatshut: :lammasu1:

Congrats to the winners and all the entrants! This one seemed to me as though it could’ve gone any way.

Glad you liked the Brothers Djinn riff on your awesome art! Since I already had a giant in my army it was the perfect out there idea for me to try and mimic.

@chitzkoi process will be up on my blog in 10 mins. Been a hard one not to spoil!

Maybe serial golden hat winners have to paint with their left (or bad) hand to level the playing field for the mere underlings (the rest of us).
Im pretty sure the defending touring car champion used to have to defend crown with extra weight added to his car (in the 90s).

Have to say i was mesmerized by deebos entry (no1) never saw anything like that before.
I could definitely say something good about all the entries…
