MOC Madness 2014: Steam War Returns Final Round Under Way!

mocmadnesslogo2014-4

The latest polls have closed and we have our final match ups: it will be rolli vs markus1984 in the fight for first and second place, and Legopard vs goatman461 sparring for third. This round is a bit different than the rest as there are no more restrictions on size or type of model. Their last challenge is simply to pick something from Star Wars and put a Steampunk spin on it. I don’t have the slightest idea what they’re each working on but I can’t wait to see what they come up with!

We had a really close poll again this round, underscoring just how important it is for forum members to get in and vote.  Here’s another look at the four enemy starfighters once again, ranked by total votes:

MOC Madness 2014: Steam Wars Returns Now Entering Bracket Phase

bracket
The votes are in
and we have our top sixteen steamfighters! Every one of ships below received twenty votes or more, which turned out to be the cut off point for anyone progressing in the tournament. The builder’s names were shuffled and sorted into the brackets above, and the next building window has now opened. Their new task is speeders: air speeders, land speeders, speederbikes… you get the idea. The next deadline is 11:59PM PST on Thursday August 7th, giving them a week to build and submit their new models. We’ll have a thread for each pairing in our contest forum.

Great work everyone, and I can’t wait to see the next round’s submission!
