I went for Simmuskahn's radagast because I really liked the exellent conversion and the painting is also very good!

I have to say the most complicated conversion on here was the fallen messenger. They are all very good, and most if not all of them can be easiely replicated by anyone for use without an article, that is good. Inspiration and sharing is always a great goal with converting...and making a cool model for a force is great too. I Like that radaghast idea and ever since I saw it I was eyeing my Legions of Everbright Raptors an thinking how sweet those armoured elk would look as a mount. And the dwarf conversions have given me some idea's for when I get to my dwarf force (someday), though I have plenty of wardens, I do like the packs and chainmail adds that CGOM did. Really great contest.

Great entries from everyone, a very hard choice, but in the end I had to go for Feanor's fallen messenger. :)

Thanks all, I really have appreciated all the kind things people have said here and elsewhere about Radagast. I'm not much of a sculptor, so was pretty happy with how it turned out! Tell you what, though, working with metal minis like that is hard! I used my Dad's Dremel to hollow out the Radagast and tore my fingers up a couple times!

So TONS of props to those of you who have been doing big conversions with metal for years, not to mention some of the greenstuff skills I've seen here - totally awesome!

Aye, well done, a nice and original conversion. Nice job to the other contestants too!
With the current amount of activity, I guess loosely defined, low barrier contests are the best method.

Congrats Simmuskhan! Excellent conversion that I thought was very much worth my vote.
The other entries were also really good, some very inspirational stuff!

I also agree with Coen by the way, these low barrier contests are best at the moment. It's nice to see quite some people entered!
