What a month with so many tremendous entries proving yet again that the 2000AD Forum is awash with a terrific amount of talent.

1. Steven Austin – Dark Judges. A menacing, classic cover type collective superbly rendered with a Death to die for.
2. Neil McClements4 – Fear. A wonderful re-working of a familiar uniform perfectly executed. And who doesn’t adore a giant maggot spewing open wound eh?
3. Darren Stephens – Deathhead. I love the palette that Darren has used on this image, from the zombie flesh green features to the gore red oozing pustules on Deaths helm.
4. James Dilworth – Sidney. This creepy grinning visage reflects well the psychopathic evil brewing within the young De’ath.
5. LARF – Red Death. This ‘Elseworld’ or ‘What If...?’ take on Death really ticks all the boxes from composition to colour. A great idea excellently realised.

HM. Fiona Boniwell, james newell, amines 2058, Leigh S, MrLongtheArtist and Andy Lambert.
Fantastic works all.

Stew.  :D

Well gosh, squaxx do love them Dark Judges. :D

First - Fiona Boniwell - Nausea (mainly for the skull bikini.)
Second - James Dilworth - Sidney (creepy little drokker.)
Third - swordfishtromboned1985 - Something to Do With Death (I have always loved the idea of the DJs as a gang.
Fourth - eamonn1961 - Tears for Fears (taking a concept to its logical conclusion.)
Fifth - Dark Jimbo - Judge Gunderson (don't give Wagner ideas!)

Splendid stuff all round. :thumbsup:
Whatever happened to Rico, Dolman and Cadet Paris? I'm sooo out of the loop.

Could have picked fifteen let alone five, tough tough choice. So...

5th place - Alistermac - Fire - nice to see a photographic entry
4th place - Andy Lambert - Dark judges - a very traditional grouping but fabulously executed
3rd place - James Dilworth - Sidney - captures the evil!
2nd place - Moy-a - Nice day in Spring - striking design and I like the colour choice
But my top vote goes to ... MrLongtheArtist - Even Death can Dream - I kept coming back to this one for the sheer joy in his dance moves, which is not something you expect to say about Judge Death! Great movement in the figure

That was hard enough, so I'm not going to do HMs, except to big up all the amazing new talent that we've discovered this time around.

Been out of the country so hopefully I'm not too late to vote but for what it's worth here's my pick.

1st - Andy Lambert - Dark Judges (It's so crisp and detailed it makes me insane with jealousy!)
2nd - MrLongtheArtist - Even Death Can Dream (Reminds me of a Mike Mignola image which I love!)
3rd - stuartcatley - The Four Dark Judges
4th - BrotherGrotusk - Death
5th - james newell - Fear and Dredd (This one made me laugh)

Honourable mentions for James Dilworth - Sidney, Neil McClements4 - Fear, Paul Moore - Movie Judge Death,
Rugers - Death Is a Law, Steven Austin - Dark Judges.

For the record, every entry was brilliant this month!
