I'd like to thank all of you who have followed month-by-month as Last Painter Standing - perhaps the most grueling painting competition ever conducted - has drawn to a close.

Round Two entry from Rob Jedi

We all have been blessed with many wonderful photographs of painted miniatures, with a bevy of well-written painting tutorials, and with greater inspiration for all of our future hobby projects!

Final Round entry from Rob Jedi

The final round vote-off was the closest vote we've had for any of the contest rounds, but Rob Jedi was victorious in the end - and is the Last Painter Standing!

Fifth Round entry from Rob Jedi

And now, some remarks from the contest sponsor, John Robertson of Urban Mammoth:

"Well, I must say that me and the guys at Urban Mammoth have watched the Last Painter Standing with great interest. It has been absolutely fascinating to see the variety of ways that our miniatures have been painted, and some fantastic conversions too.

I must congratulate all of the guys who entered the competition, because believe me, it has been an inspiration to see this level of creativity going into our models. I take my hat off to you all!
Round Three entry from Rob Jedi

Well, as with all competitions there has to be a winner and - without detracting from anybody else - Rob Jedi's final piece, the Shogun Battle suit, sums up what this competition has been about: great vision, great technique and excellent execution. So "well done" to Rob, the trophy's on its way to you!
The Celtos trophy goes to Rob Jedi!

Now as the level of the competition has been so high, I have felt compelled to give every entry a prize - so there will be a small package going out to every one of the Finalists. Well done, everyone!
Rob Jedi's Round One entry

This only leaves me to thank Bill for running this quite unique and wonderful event. I'm sure, like myself, a lot of people have enjoyed watching it unfold, as well as marvelling at the wonderful pieces on show. Cheers, and many thanks to you.
