That's why I like the judging system on my current contests (Halloween one is an exception) because we're less about critiquing all these aspects of a miniature and instead just allowing people to vote for what strikes them the most when they first see it.
Judging from the winners of the recent one, I'd say that system works well.
The worst physically present contest I've ever been in I lost. It's not worst because I lost, but because the judge won.
Conflict of interest maybe? That was . . . that was something else, yeah. When I questioned it, I was told none of the other category judges were qualified to judge miniatures. Still didn't explain why the guy judging it was entered in it.
Wow. That is so wrong in so many ways.
I built a boat. Spelljammer pictures here.
And I don't know a soul who's not been battered.
I don't have a friend who feels at ease.
I don't know a dream that's not been shattered
Or driven to its knees.
But it's all right, it's all right.
We've lived so well so long.
Still, when I think of the road we're traveling on
I wonder what went wrong.
I can't help it, I wonder what went wrong.

Some humans would do anything to see if it was possible to do it. If you put a large switch in some cave somewhere,
with a sign on it saying 'End-of-the-World Switch. PLEASE DO NOT TOUCH', the paint wouldn't even have time to dry.
