Kenobi and Yoda die, Luke becomes Jedi, Sith master dies, Annakin turns back and dies, Luke is left... oops, it fell over

After the fact.  Prophecy fulfilled.  Balance achieved.  Prophecy said nothing of what comes after.  Unless you are stating that the whole cycle begins again.

Completely pointless, but it has been in my mind for a long time.

The chosen one who would bring balance to the force = Anakin Skywalker.
Trained as a jedi, hundreds already exist.
Brought over by a Sith Lord, only ever one master and apprentice at a time it seems
Helped Sith Lord kill all the jedi
Yoda and Kenobi survive
Two jedi, two sith
BALANCE ACHIEVED

Nerd-out expended.  Back to normal.

I really want some lots of those mushrooms and the Ducktown Water Wheel.  Wonder if I can sneak it in under the radar.

Would like to see Hasslefree's take on the old loup garou, but it's worth noting that Heresy does do quite a nice werewolf already.

I expect I will end up ordering some next time I order, my brother has gone mad for mushrooms as part of the old school thing and while he has sculpted a few this will save a lot of work and dicking around with greenstuff though I did think I had found a use for the old GW round flying bases.

Suggestions (HF) / Werewolf

What about a proper werewolf, the human wolf hybrid form not the 'I'm a bit angry and I haven't shaved today' sort?

There are lots of them out there but most of them look a bit pants.

I was just looking at the new ones for Infinity:

and they look good, actually really good, but will do doubt cost an arm and a leg and would have to have the SF bits removed but a decent, realistic, scary werewolf or two would be useful.

Whilst I understand and respect your sentiments, I'm afraid I will have to disagree.

As I originally posted, I find it hard to believe that over the past two years, there has been no opportunity at all to finish off this contest. I fully agree that it's virtually philantrophic of Hasslefree to have set up this contest in the way they did, but I also believe that the overwhelming response caught them by surprise.

Additionally, most of the participants have been customers and even fans of Hasslefree's, so the perpetual postponing of the conclusion of the contest can eventually only hurt Hasslefree, when patience finally wears thin and disappointment sets in.

So, and apologies for sounding like a broken record, instead of dragging this along forever, trying to do it all and potentially alienate part of their customer base, I think it might be more beneficial for them to admit that this thing has grown too big, time consuming and expensive to be viable. Like I said; I don't think there will be any hard feelings amongst the contestants, as long as they get their sculpts back.

Of course the process might be too far along at this time to stop now, because of commitments made to the caster for instance. But, and correct me if I'm wrong, judging by the sporadic update posts, I don't think that's already the case.

In the end though, and this is my personal feeling, I think it's a case of commitment and drive, or else, the contest would already have been over and done. I'm not putting down Hasslefree's effort, zeal and commitment to the running and development of their regular business, but this contest, which had to be taken over by Artemis Black from Sally, must have been an extra burden with a low priority, after the changeover.

And therein lies my problem; it's Hasslefree as an entity which has committed itself to this contest, and it should have either taken the contest to its full conclusion within a reasonable timeframe, or have admitted that this was no longer feasible, and have found a way to stop the contest in a decent way, no matter who's been in control of the process.

Dragging it along for two years, you have to admit, is not pleasant for anyone involved. Not for Hasslefree, as they constantly have the huge workload and costs of the contest hanging over their heads, and not for the contestants, who have had to be patient for years now. I think a delay of several month, whatever the cause, would have been acceptable and even to be expected, but not two years...
