    Mesh How the mesh looks aesthetically? How are its proportions, its balance and scale? How coherent is polygon distribution? /10
    Skin How good is the wrap? Are custom textures appealing? Or how adequate are the in-game chosen textures? Is it blurry/stretched? Do the tones go well together? /10
    Animations How natural, smooth and appropriate are the animations? If they're custom, how well are they executed? Do they have physical coherence? Do they have character/personality? If they are imported, how appropriate was the animation choice? How hard is it to relate it to the original in that case? /10
    Effects How adequate are the particle/ribbon/etc effects added? Do they contribute to the model? Are they impressing? But are they added in a good measure? Did the model need more? /5
    Theme How well do the two models fit each other thematically? Do they complement each other? Is it clear which is the spawner and which is the spawnee? /10
    Mechanics How well does the model work in-game? Are the animations recognizable in-game? Does it feature attachments/footprints/collisions/etc? Is it fully selectable? /5
    Creativity How original is the general idea? How inventive is the execution? Does it fit the theme? Does it fit WC3 environment? /10
    /60

    Man all these entries are really dope, incredible work by everyone in the contest.
    I would have liked to give a point to AR/Proxy too.
    The Ember Knight just takes the cake though.

    All of them are really lovely, however there can be only one.

    I give more credit to those who worked alone for their time invested.

    1. Grendel's is really good but the originality falls a bit with the infested villager.
    2. Arowanna and Stefan.K did a well WoW job however in terms of creativity it isn't impressive.
    3. Freddyk basically won me with the building animation.
    4. Mythic & ~Nightmare made wonderous models with so many details but sadly, I preferred to put solo work higher.
    5. A.R. & PROXY's work is on par with Arowanna and Stefan.K's in terms of concept, maybe better looking in some regards but still the concept is similar and the units are both human concepts even though one of them is only its skeleton.

    It's pretty hard to put critique into these when some have two moving units and others having one of them a building.

    I apologize to any who might be waiting for one of those in-depth reviews I try to do for these Contests... I simply don't have the time & wherewithal to do so, so I'll keep it short.

    It's clear the likes of Mythic/Nightmare & Freddyk are absolute winners here in terms of model quality. Absolute show-stoppers, both of you.

    However, since I'm not the Judge, I decide the metrics which determine my vote, and as always I tend to care a lot more about "fitting into Warcraft 3" than I do almost anything else.

    So I have voted for Grendel, whose excellent "Plague Meister" model just knocks it outta the park for me. Ingenious use of the Kodo Beast for such a very different kind of model, and the "Parasite Villager" is pretty appropriately freaky too. Could see myself using this.

    Congrats to all who finished (you all did splendidly, really) & good luck!
