Kuffy - Snikrot
Lord Boark - Vampiress
redarmy27 - 'Stalker'
redarmy all the way for me. While all entries are really, really good, Kuffy's Ork is not 'stealthy' without knowing the fluff (and I don't) and the girl... she's quite well visible, if you know what I mean.
I don't think that it is quite as cut and dried as that.
Lord Borak - Vampires by definition exist in the shadows and Borak has done a splendid job on her. The tattoo on the back is outstanding and although the flesh could possibly have come up a shade or 2 lighter that is probably just the camera flattening it out. If Borak had photographed her on a darker background he would creat a very different feel for her, much more evil and sinister.
Kuffy - While orcs are not typically stealthy creature this one has gone to the effort of wearing camoflauge, and in a particularly stealthy effort managed to kill without losing himself in the redmist and going beserk. In my head he crept up behind a guardsman and sliced their throat very quiet like. This probably would have got my vote except my idea of a stelathy orc is one of those cartoon bushes that creeps up on someone on tiptoes.
Red Army - This was disappointing, with the others I had to use imagination and stuff yours tells the whole story for me, how droll.
Outstanding entrants from all 3 though, sorry that nothing I said was actually constructive, I won't tell you who I voted for or even if I voted though.
I like the idea of an Ork for the competition - thinking out side the box is awesome.
I felt like this was a painting competition more than a diorama one. Maybe my approach is wrong, but I felt that it was more direct and to the point and from this perspective there could only be one winner for me. I felt like the degree of difficulty on one of the entries was higher than the other two. It also featured more rich colours with excellent highlighting just the way I personally prefer it.
Great job all three of you!

Great job to both of you! A special thanks goes to Kuffy for holding the competition as well. It was just the "umph" and kick in the butt I needed to get painting again.
Kuffy - DIY Snikrot
Kyffy, your Orc has a ton of character. I think a lot of people need to take the time to look closely at the amount of detail you packed into this guy. The metallic are great. The skin tones are very interesting and detailed. The camo on his backpack and uniform are wonderful! Great job on him.
Lord Borak – Vampiress
L.B., you get my vote. The execution of the model is simple but incredibly effective. You use colors to great effect and create a stark but “cold” feeling model. The skintone on her is fantastic and is something I’m really looking at getting the hang of, especially the way you do the subtle lighting on the skin. Excellent work.
Stalker – me.
I’m always very critical of my own work so I could name off a million things that I should improve upon. Overall, it was a fun miniature to build and paint. I consider this a stepping stone onto my progression in the hobby. It was joy to paint, but I could improve in several areas.
Great job guys!
My vote: Lord Borak – Vampiress
That's two entries out of two for me. How long can I keep it up?! Place your bets now*!!

All three are amazing pieces.
I had to with the sniper, though. A miniature doesn't exist within a vacuum, the base does do a lot to contribute to the story that the mini tells. Even in tabletop quality work, the base is still there to put the mini into the setting, be it a desert landscape, forest world, or urban environment.
Who can resist the half naked vampire?I accuse Lord Borak for posting things i cant resist.Therefore technically stealing my vote.
EDIT: Dont tell me the dragon in her back is a free hand?
Praise be to the Emperor!!
