CDC #434 – Pimp My Post Apocalyptic Ride! – Results

Well I have to say I am surprised. I thought this contest would have people clambering to enter. Just goes to show that I don't know much...but I know what I like and I like all the entries this week; from Kellkin's post apocalyptic semi to HerrD's TacV. All brilliant! But two entries rang all the post apocalyptic bells for me.

First is runner up GW's Spiker

Great use of items and the colour choices are dead on.

And this week's winner...

CDC #427 – Team Building – Volume 2 – Part 15 – Finale

So first of all, I have to thank all the creators that came out to play over the past 14 weeks or so. You continually surprise me with your creativity and talent. So now we are down to the last challenge: to design a logo and come up with a name for both the team of heroes and the team of villains. Last year’s winning names were The New Samaritans and Lunatic Fringe. If you decide to enter  you must enter all four segments (2 logos and 2 names). Also, one person might not win it all. There could be as many as 4 winners

The prize for winning…or being one of the winners….will be a hero or villain based on you and designed by me to add to the existing roster of 8 members per team. As a reminder the members are:

Heroes:

  Totem   Mach 20

 Raptor or  Harpie (tie)

 Gauntlet    Achillia

 Apollo      Beacon

  Flare

You Decide Our Next Poll

Ok guys, I don't know what to do as our next poll. The obvious way to go after doing Marvel's Greatest Superheroes and the their Greatest Supervillains is to do DC next, but I have one problem with that, I can already write both lists down to each position without needing the poll and that just defeats the purpose. But, just in case you want to do that, I'll give you a choice. Next week we can either do DC's Greatest Superheroes or The Greatest Superhero Teams, your choice. The poll will be open till Monday, when the List from our last poll will go up and then next Monday we'll do which ever poll gets the most votes here. Sound good?
