In the historical classes this is not the case. Usually there will be two or three top class entries, and that will be about it.
Its as if most historical wargamers either can't be arsed to put a unit in the competition, or perhaps they feel that the judging is just not up to a decent standard and there is no point.
I think this year hit an all time low for naming a winner of the historical classes.
Again I have to apologise about the images, as it is very hard to get a decent photograph of the entries. The following three stood out for me as top quality painting, I know it is a subjective thing, but I have a bit of experience about what is what.
The following were entered in the Class two, 3 to 40 historical figures.
