I went with Draco's church. Not only was it flawless (like many others) but it was really spacious, which makes it usable in game too!
Everyone had amazing pieces, I really can't criticize (except for mine :lol: )
Great job everyone!

Everyone did a great job on the terrain, it was really hard to pick, but in the end I chose Draco Wrecked Church peice, mainly cause I liked it the most.

I vote for Sethsides. Although it's hard to leave DracoAvian and Hightower86 out.

Loved both the inner checkpoint and the church, but my vote had to go to the church for flexibility in use on ANY battle field. Great job to everyone!

I voted for hightower66. I've tried countless times to make something like that and it never turns out half as good. Sethside was a really close second though.

I went with the burnt out church. A well thought out and executed piece that looks like it would be a great objective on a table that would both block LoS and encourage assaults from all angles. Very nice.

lol i loved all the pieces!!! you all did a splendid job! and if my dear brother hadn't voted before me, i would've voted for the hightower. just because i think it has a wonderful dark beauty to it that befits me and my armies :D
the japanese fortress(becuase i can't rememebr what it's called and am too lazy to scroll for it) is a close second and everyone else is a third i don't think i'd be able to decide between :shock:

i've noticed these entries getting better and better each time >.>
i'm never going to stand a chance at this rate XD

There is so much that I know I could have done that I couldn't even consider choosing myself, then I looked at the other builds again and I didn't know how I could even consider considering myself :P I was stuck with Hightower and Sethside. In the end I had to vote for hightower. I love his piece so much, even if I disagree with one small decision :P It was a hard choice to make, but I think he deserves the vote. It was the floor tiles that did it in for me. Those are just beautiful. The good lighting couldn't have hurt either. (I'll have to make sure to take pictures during the day next time.)

That said, everyone's piece was pretty awesome. I love the subtlety, yet functionality of balangaz's outpost, and is something for me to try and emulate in the future. If I had the power to award a special "most challenging/ambitious build" it would be to Crusher. I've got to face it, organic, slimy, tyranid terrain is too tough for me to even think about attempting.
