    Mesh How does the mesh look aesthetically? How are its proportions, its balance and scale? How coherent is polygon distribution? /15
    Skin How good is the wrap? Are custom textures appealing? How adequate are the in-game chosen textures? Are they blurry/stretched? Do the tones go well together? /15
    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? Does the model have enough animations to function properly? /15
    Effects How adequate are the particle/ribbon/etc effects added? Do they contribute to the model? Are they impressive? Are they added in good measure? Did the model need more? /10
    Theme How well does the model exhibit bloodthirst? /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
    Creativity How original is the general idea? How inventive is the execution? How well does the model fit in the game environment? /20
    /100

    Just a short bit here... I believe the "Eldritch Covenant" is almost certainly the best model of the 3 (in terms of mesh/animation/sfx/texture/etc). However, I'm not a Judge, and I personally put a *lot* of stock into how useful I personally find something to be. The EC is super cool but it's also really pushing the boundaries of "Classic" IMO (no offense Mythic, I already told you all this), while the King of the Dead feels like something I could just plop right into the standard game & not notice a difference. (Loktar, your Temple is super keen but something about the textures makes me feel more "doodad-y" with it. Love the bloody skeleton, though).

    So my vote goes towards the KotD.

    Excellent work, all!

    Maybe I should judge a little less, so I can participate a little more. Haha

    Best of luck to all of you!

    They're allowed, as long as it's not for themselves. :] Judges are not allowed to vote at all.

    Ah good :p

    Damn, I just noticed I messed up the channel animation with the skeleton in my last edit right before the end of the contest. The blood is floating up instead of falling down. I'll fix it later but too late for the contest I guess.

    Is it ok to update the bundle on Hive before the end of the poll?
