As long as I am playing this game my first nomination will always be Tim and Mark from through Star Wars Miniverse podcast. Without them there would be no local mini's scene and I would never have come across this game. There would be no Wisconsin regional either. And of course we wouldn't have Star Wars Miniverse.

The rest of these are in no order.

Swinefeld for his significant contributions to bloomilk and the community in general.

Weeks as arguably the best mini's player not already in.

Jake for his part in the creation and/or co-creation of the Royal Rumble and Tile Wars formats.

The Hutts not only for being perhaps New Zealand's best player but also for a tremendous presence on the forums. His humor, positivity, and general presence make the community better.

There are more deserving that I look forward to nominating next year after some of this group gets in!

I count 6.

Yes. I was thinking in terms of Mark and Tim being a joint nomination given the context in this case. I was hoping a slight tweak would be permissible. :-)

I "officially" voted on bloomilk to try and get things rolling a little more over there. Don't double count my votes, but in case anyone is curious:

After much consideration, I decided to do my nominations slightly different this year.

This will be my first year voting AS a Hall of Fame member, therefore I have a unique opportunity.

You see first we do a mass vote on the forums, the top three earning a "community vote", and essentially coming up with finalists.

Then the Hall of Fame picks from the finalists.

Many deserving people are already getting votes en masse, and rightfully so (Weeks, Darth Jim, TheHutts, etc) - so I figure they are already a lock for the finalist ballot.

So since I actually get to vote again as a Hall of Fame member, I will take this opportunity to cast my preliminary ballot with names not seen as much as the very deserving members already frequently nominated, but also worthy in my opinion.

They may or may not make it onto the finalist list (I'm hoping they do), but I think they should be recognized, and their names should be out there.

Jake Koleczek - sthlrd2. Major playtester, customizer, numerous top 4 regional finishes, TILE WARS 2012 World Champion. People may or may not know that he is also a great and creative stat maker. Many abilities and force powers on v-set pieces, present and upcoming, were spawned from his brain. And of course he created and has promoted the Royal Rumble format.

Laurent alias Solter alias Darthsemmemon - French champion and great competitor. He and I have chatted strategy several times over PM, and he clearly understands the game very well.

Laura Kiernan - UrbanShmi. Rock solid squad builder - she knows how to maximize piece potential. Solid player and killer customizer, always a great supporter of the game in general.

Eric Frost - Ruhk. V-Set designer, Mod, great player (regional champ and GenCon top 8 finalist) and he bent over backwards to make prize support for Gencon 2011 happen. It's kind of a shame he's not already in the Hall of Fame

Will Piggot - exiledgamer. Will designed and is continually improving the pairing software used in almost all of our competitive events around the country. For free, on his own time. He really deserves our thanks.

Mike Giles
Eric Frost
Urbin Shmi
Jake - he dedicates way to much of his and my time to this. And plus he's the best looking minis player.
