WAAAGH! Photo Contest – The Results!August 5, 2008
On one hand, contests are awesome, fun, inspiring events that filled my inbox with joy and innovation. On the other hand, at the end of the run, I am forced to sit down and pick out my favorite submission from a pack of pretty creative entries — and I hate making that choice.
Back in early July, I asked WAAAGH!’s readers to send in photos of themselves, their pets or whatever with a hand-created speech bubble with “WAAAGH!” in it — and you guys didn’t disappoint. We had over 20 entries, including one group of people who went nuts with the camera during what appeared to be a booze-infested LAN party. While I know the prizes are lame — sorry about that, but I couldn’t get any from Mythic when I asked — the honor is all here for these brave men, women and hedgehogs of Warhammer Online.
Let’s roll out the final results!
A valiant effort… but wait, is that WORLD OF WARCRAFT?!? Blasphemy!
Yves said this was an old t-shirt of his. He looks upset with it.
You know, you just know that this cat is planning to devour you all. And it won’t feel a smidgen guilty about it, either.
You may commence your “awwwww’s” right about now. Hedgehogs FTW!
Why do birds suddenly appear, every time WAAAGH! is near?
Alistair’s Collector’s Edition couldn’t be silent any longer… nobody likes being cut.
I guess the Predator got to him first.
She’s in a closed beta. But she has an open mouth.
Do NOT cross her in a scenario. She will cut off your head in a second.
Surprisingly, computers don’t always like having their guts ripped out by a white-gloved stranger.
It’s “WAAAGH!” not “WAAAR!”, you illiterate bird! Don’t give me that look! You’re not THAT cute! Okay, you are. But still.
And this was the point in the contest where I genuinely became afraid for my own life.
2008: Year of the Waaagh Dragon
Impressive. Most impressive.
So wrong on so many levels. And yet, I can’t help but smile.
See? Gnomes ARE in Warhammer Online after all!
Johnny Walker joins a cult. A very, very loud cult.
Flower gets revenge on Bambi and Thumper. Big time.
And in Third Place…
I think a vessel popped during this, but I can’t help but be sold on the whole evil WAAAGH! screaming lunatic. He reminds me of my second cousin Trigger.
Counting down to Second Place…
Well, for one thing, it’s three adorable little kids. For another, we can’t resist Spider-Man instructing us to WAAAGH! And for a third, it’s a pyramid of power. Congrats!
And our First Place winner is…
I just have to respect the time, dedication and tidal chart know-how that it took to do something this magnificent, this beautiful, this pointless! CONGRATS to Mr. Rebecca for the win!
And thanks again to everyone who took the time and effort to do this — it was a lot of fun!
