Some of that stuff I've never even heard of. Glad I opted to check each link out!

Unfortunately the list misses Oddzial Osmy's New Vistula Legion, released in September 2011.

Why didn't you nominate them?
|Fighting 15s ||07 Jan 2013 4:47 a.m. PST|
Because, Bill, it's easy enough to miss the two or so day window in which a message board topic stays alive on the main page. The nominations, checking back, were probably live there from 8 to 10 February 2012 because nothing else was added past then.
I know back then I'd have been clearing orders to get ready for the Spring Cup in Milan (my life outside wargaming), and I probably did what I usually do when I'm busy, which is skim the news headlines of wargames sites and not look at message boards.
I am, also, just a stockist of the range. John, at Picoarmor, also stocks them and didn't nominate them, and nor did Marcin of Oddzial Osmy, who actually makes them.
I also feel that as someone deeply involved in the range that perhaps nominations should come from wargamers, not people with a vested interest. Not that having a "best range of 2011" announced in 2013 seems remotely topical or something I would care to trumpet because the date makes it sound so stale. In 2013 I really only care about the best ranges of 2012 and if the 2012 winners are announced in 2014, rather than early in 2013, I won't even care particularly then.
As I said, it's a shame that the NVL weren't there, and as a 2011 range aren't valid for 2012, but the staleness of the awards makes that regret a minor concern.

Congrats Zombiesmith !! I agree with Ming !

That's why I own 4 squads!

I'm half way through my first squad of Quar right now. I don't have any games in mind (though I got the Songs Of Our Ancestors book), I just saw them and decided I needed to paint some.
|CPBelt ||15 Jan 2013 8:53 a.m. PST|
I'm in the same boat. No real idea of a game, but I've always liked them along with Zombiesmith's other minis. I just like their look in 28mm. With the sale on, my son wants me to pick up some 15mm Aphids as well.

I should pay attention. Thanks, all! To celebrate 15% off everything!
(Seriously, having a sale, come get some award winning Quar for 15% off!)
