    Another tough contest. I had to go with Godzilla. My other favorites were the Mithra Ranger and the Chinese Rocket Team. Congratulations to all the entrants though; they are all super.

    All excellent choices this month. I've downloaded several of them. My prediliction for ancient Asia let the rocket team win my vote and I respect the complexity of doing multi-figure animations; the Panzerfaust was a very close second (looks like it could be used as a combat engineer with that pickaxe animation). None of you should feel slighted, since I can only vote once.

    Well, I'd say only one of these units fills my number one cirterea for judging a unit: How much of a Catgirl it is.

    Seriously though, these are all great... It was really hard to choose. But.. Go Catgirl!

    I'm finding myself paying far more attention to this months vote than past ones. All are good enough to win, and 3-4 personal favorites leave me no one to really root for. In the end I went with MoscaTnT's Panzerfaust. A very good unit (which I will be able to use in my own game). But, I also am so impressed that a fellow can turn out such an amazing unit given that he has only been making them for a few weeks...

    :lol: I knew that I could count on your vote at least, GoldFlash! Oh well, probably the only vote I'll get though... But I thank you for it anyways.

    Voted Cam, great comeback to unit making, if there's any rust in that unit I'm sure it's intentional. :)

    I know this has been said again and again, but I have to say it anyways. There truly are too many excellent units to choose from. They really are all top class.:) I've been quite puzzled on how to vote, and I've been studying all the animations again and again to try to find flaws in the animations or look of the units. Excellent job, everyone.:thumbsup: :goodjob: :) !

    i originally voted for the Rocket team, but now since ive studied all the units carefully i want to change my vote to the German Panzerfaust. All the units are excellent though! So hard to choose...

    Really tough choice this time with four very high quality units, several good ones and not a single bad one. My choice was MoscaTnT's Panzerfaust due to a beautiful model, good idea and a great execution with very realistic animations. There's also a pinch of 'new unit maker' bonus in there, but not enough that it would've made the difference - this unit won with its own merits.

    Bubblin' under:
    - Aaglo's silverhelm (beautiful unit and one that has been needed. ED's high elf cavalry was pretty much the only cavalry unit of this particular style.)
    - Utah's rocket team (great idea, beautiful execution. Lost to panzerfaust by inches.)
    - CamJH's chaos halberdier (excellent model, good animations, nothing to fault)
    - Supa's Godzilla (funny and good execution)

    It's a shame to have to only pick 1. This is fantastic work.

    I'm going with the Rocket Team though.

    Great job guys.

    I voted for the Chaos Halberdier, although I really wish I had another vote so I could pick Godzilla too.

    So I'm, begining to notice a trend here. Anything I vote for never wins.

    Oh wait, thats not true. I did manage to vote down thoes state constitutional amenedments a few months back.

    But mostly, no. Things I vote for never win. Maybe I should vote for the other politcal party this Novemeber to force them to loose so my party can take back a house of Congress!

    But at least tell us if there is going to be something special for the winners of each edition or just for this one!
    :evil: Because if it is for each edition, now that I released my first PCX I will work so hard to beat all the others, until I will do it! (I know what means competition, I've been through about 106 so far) :nya: (of course I was joking)

    the chaos and the panzerfaust are really close in the race. What made the difference for me was that i could use the panzerfaust in game for the germans...which is why i ultimately like the panzerfaust.
    So...maybe that'll help people decide.
