I like ximmons NMM attempt. I like all the freehand that went into smartahs I like the base for Luna's
Not really feeling the captain holding the helmet Not digging the glow and armour on Luna's Noticed the joints of smartahs weren't done Te flesh on the librarian is good but feels unfinished The rest if ximmons has a strangely out of place feel to the NMM
Ultimately went for smartah due to the extensive free hand work.
"I dig how in a setting where giant, muscled fungus men ride Mad Max cars and use their own teeth as currency, the concept of little engineering dudes with beards was considered a step too far down the aisle of silliness."
If I could pick 2, Smartah and Luna would get my votes hands down. Technically Luna has the better painted mini, but Smartah really went above and beyod her "normal" set of skills, while I think Luna gave us exactly what we'd expect of a painter of his calibre. It was a tough choice! And really what I said about Smartah applies to most of the models - it's great to see up-and-coming painters extending their skills

I liked them all and the painting skills are excellent. I had to go with A Luna because every time I looked at the swords, I swear I saw the energy moving on them! That is the coolest effect ever, like some sort of energon blade!

Like (almost) everyone else, I vote A Luna. I think the A stands for awesomeness! The yellow, blue, and red are perfect together, and the armor especially is fantastic. Props to Smartah for the freehand and Mike for the super-smooth DC. Nice work all and hopefully we'll see you all back again next month.
