My vote goes to Cloudwolf. His terrain is just awesome, it really has that extra "touch" that makes you think it is a battle.

You all did beautiful work and you are all winners :D But regardless, gotta vote.

My votes go to -
CloudWolf, Oziris, Tamerleine, idodik, VegaKotes and Sheephunter.
In my opinion they captured the best idea of what a battlefield is aimed to represent :)

My vote goes to Oz, but I didn't read before I voted, because otherwise I would've voted for CloudWolf, Keiji and Fladdermasken as well. Oh well. Good luck to you all.

So many cool and innovative submissions; too many to comment them all. Still my three votes go to CloudWolf's action packed castle siege, fladdermasken's calm before the storm and CoBrA b's magical fairytale.

Tough choice! In my opinion Indomitable, Cloudwolf and, to a lesser extent, Tamerleine captured the essence of a battlefield without making it look too messy. Secondly, they did this without losing a lot of action that comes with the theme.
I got a sence of excitment in the works of Oziris and Cobra B, paired with a good sence of depth (eg the castle in the back ground etc). The same thing goes for Keiji's where the mysterious fog, the tanks, the dragon and night create a sence of mystery. I also loved the crazyness of fladdermaskens terrain, but I feel that it doesn't live up to the theme of the contest. So I'll just +rep for that now.
I really liked phoonix's WIP, but I don't feel that the night and fog did it a lot of good. The result is a bit blurry and I liked the old version because it felt more like a 18th century painting.

So I'll vote for Cloudwolf for the theme and for oziris for the atmosphere.

Oziris all the way. I think Cloudwolf's is the best battlefield between 2 armies, but Oziris' looks like a freakin' battlefield all the way, who says a battlefield has to be between armies? Two huge titans tore that city apart, and it's epic.

I'm no terrainer so keep that in mind while reading my comments. My top 6 were the following:

fladdenmasken:
I like the tiles and doodad placement. The colour theme is coherent, it gives a very bleak mood. Really fitting with the industrial vibe. However maybe there's a slight lack of combat.

Oziris:
A lot of detail to rest your eyes on. The city continues nicely on the background, you can see buildings and other stuff there. Two giant elementals wreaking havoc just looks cool. They're grabbing buildings which adds to their impressiveness. However I don't like the fact they are hitting each other's fists. It doesn't look like they are trying to punch to the face or chest for example. I think they should be leaning towards each other slightly when trying to land a poweful blow.

Cloudwolf:
Now this is definitely a battlefield. Arrwows and burning boulders flying around, a very chaotic feeling which is a positive fact. The footmen flying due to being hit is a great touch. So are the trebuchets caught in mid-firing animation. The time of day adds to the athmosphere, the fog/sky is nice. I think the moon is glowing too much and the pic lacks the high-res feeling that some other contestants managed to capture. I see too many jagged edges, the pic could benefit from anti-aliasing.

johannesr:
This looks ligh a high quality pic. I remember seeing this pic at it's infant stages and thgough nothing of it, now it's really great. The tile set chosen in good and the tiles are placed well. The sand worms look menacing and it's good to see them in different phases of their animations. The blood effects on the works are good bonus. I do get the feeling of being in another planet. You could've added some weapon projectiles and maybe a marine throwing a grenade, shooting a bazooka or firing with a plasma weapon.

chilla_killa:
Good looking pic. Instantly one of my favourites. I think you could've done a better job with the rocks, like changed their size or applied some ctrl + Page Down on some of them.

Keiji:
Initially I didn't really like it when seeing some WIPs. However I must say that this is really good terraining and I do like it a lot now. The trees look fantastic. Good placement and variation, the models and textures are sweet. The green pollutin with the mist loos great and the fog is lovely. The cogs on top of the barrel, leaning the barrel and on the fence, love 'em. The theme is somehow not appealing to me by 100%. I'd like to see some meat wagon projectile, or tanks muzzle flash...something more, more combat.

1. Cloudwolf: Just epic. Could have used another model for the footman but np, still epic. Arrows are raining, fireballs are deadly, moon is shining over the bloody fight, the king is enpowering his troops. Again, just epic battlefield.

2. Oziris: Epic again. Clash of the titans, lots of details, very well made titans. Atmosphere and all is well done. Only thing that didnt catch my vote is the fact that there are two monsters fighting, this is not really what I expected from a "Battlefield".
