Firstly, thanks to everyone that participated, and I enjoyed reading all your ideas and requests. It seems that most of us are actually on the same wavelength, and I'm looking forward to creating a wider range of characters for the world I've made a small step towards creating. I was expecting a lot of people asking for Dwarves, but the first calls were for the dust-devils (Desert Vampyres) on the edge of the dragon wastes and close enough to the Geladan and Hyenamen to become a pest.

I've got a few ideas floating around in my head for these, but no sketches have materialized in Zbrush yet. Gritty dour Elves were high on your lists, so I will be putting more thought into getting these done, If only I had more free sculpting time!

Barbarian Hyenaman on Warbeest

Okay, that's enough waffling. So who were the lucky winners? (Drumroll.)

In first place, we have Chris Dayman who wins the Hyenaman warband – the new Barbarian on Warbeest, the Shapeshifting Hyenaman Human Warrior, and Gnoll variant. And the Hyenaman Handler and his two Hyenas.

Chris' main suggestion was for the dust-devils, but we had a great chat about the Beestwars games he'd been playing with his mates in Australia. It was great to learn that he'd been putting the rules (developed by ZombieSmith) through their paces, and has had much larger games than I. Thanks, Chris, it was great chatting with you again.

Barbarian Hyenaman Warband

In second place, we have Nathan Smith who wins the Geladan starter warband (although I think you are after the Barbarian shapeshifters, so you can swap them over if you want?). A lot of awesome ideas based around the Nomadic Elves I intend to sculpt. I hope I can get around to working on these soon. Clovis Wildebeest (Minotaurs) first, though. You can see my WIP Zbrush video part 2 on my Facebook page.

I've decided to add a little runners-up prize to Ryan Stuart, I just spoke with him, and he's asked for the Hyenaman Gnoll.

And another runners-up prize to Dentatus Fezian, who entered via The Miniatures Page (TMP). Well, which Beestwars figure would you like, Dentatus Fezian? I'll be contacting you through TMP to get your address.

Part of the Bestiary that will be released soon

So next (after I've sent the competition results to everyone and shipped their winning spoils out), my aim is to get the new figures on my website and in my Facebook store (this may happen before we have all the new stats and the free rules PDF updated), so stayed tuned…
