    The mount can be anything, as long as it handles all the displacement for the rider.

    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? /15
    Effects How adequate are the particle/ribbon/etc effects? Do they contribute to the model? Are they impressive? Are they added in good measure? Did the model need more? /15
    Theme How well does the model fit the theme? Is there a clear distinction between the rider and the vehicle/mount? /15
    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? /10

    Wow! I don’t think I’ve ever seen a contest with this many truly great models. I honestly don’t think I can vote for one. I am seriously trying to come up with storylines and reasons to add some of them to my campaign. They are that good. Good job everyone.

    It's been a long while since I've looked at a poll on this forum and I have to say the quality of these subissions is through the roof.

    I literally changed 4 new scratch made entries until I uploaded this one. I want to hear some opinions whether I was wrong by going with this idea or I should've finished some of these models and submit them as an entry.

    About the other entries, just like everyone said all of the entries are nicely made and I'm glad everyone made it to submit their entries! This was a fun contest.

    @Stefan.K
    The second one is pretty awesome. But I think the one you submitted was the best.

    @Stefan.K the meat wagon looks interesting.
    My favorite is the second. I adore the texture usage, especially the Myrmidon's for the Murloc. I think I'd have preferred it over the mage.

    I changed that naga texture for the murloc. Used Hydra's one instead.

    @Stefan.K You had an undead little Timmy riding a meat Wagon, and you thought that's not brilliant???? I feel like you dropped the ball there man, and deserve some negative rep. :)))

    I totally second that. I'm proud of all of you guys, this contest was amazing and so much fun! I'm also super glad to see veteran modellers and "newer" guys both submitting entries. I see a bright future for the next contests :) Let's hope the themes are as accesible as well.

    As many others said, the second one is my favourite (although all of them are great). I'm a sucker for clever face texture usage and the mount is also really unique. Third one was great too, but the texture quality was not amazing (not your fault really).

    Still, the bandit mage is awesome too, so don't sell yourself short, dummie.

    I hate to say this, but I don't vote :peasant-neutral:
    Why you didn't allowed multiple votes? at least 3 choices needed for this contest.
