Finally, we have a final list of inductees for the Star Wars Miniatures Hall of Fame Class of 2012! First I'd like to thank everyone in the community for getting involved in the nomination process. I'd also like to say that there were far more worthy candidates than just those who have been chosen to be inducted, making this a very difficult decision. To all the nominees, whether you are on this final list or not: Thank you for doing what you do. Without the strong community that we have, the Hall of Fame loses its purpose.

Now, without further ado, your Hall of Fame class of 2012 is:

Brad Phillips, The_Celestial_Warrior
Tim Ballard, TimmerB123
Trevor Payton, thereisnotry
Jason Kiernan, urbanjedi

In addition to these four, we have our annual international inductee. For this we look for someone outside the United States to induct; someone that doesn't get to be seen at Regionals or at GenCon, but who is still worthy of being in our Hall of Fame through great dedication and support to our game. This year the international inductee is:

Kerry Logan, kezzamachine

As a group, the Hall of Fame also likes to be sure that we induct people worthy of being among our ranks, even if their work is more behind the scenes than most. We do this for people who have supported our game in a fundamental way. This year the Hall of Fame as a group has decided to induct an additional individual without whom our V-sets and the current nature of our game would not have nearly the quality that we enjoy. That person is:

Chris Neal, jedispyder

Last but obviously not least, the player who won the national championship at GenCon 2011 for his induction:

Ian Gordon, Jester007


Congratulations to all the inductees!

Kezzamachine will be so excited!

He's done lots of work directly for the main community recently - some design work, the ranking system - but he's been doing a great job with our local group for around 5 years, building it into a robust group of more than 20 players, with organised tournaments, and honestly I think he deserves it just for that.

Tihei Mauri ora!

Well, to be honest, I'm kinda shocked, wildly grateful and a bit confused as to how I'm going to tell my wife (or if she'll even understand). Thank you to everyone for recognising not only me in this, but our NZ guys and the International community as a whole. We see the excellent standard that the guys who work hard in this game set and we aspire to match it.

Bring on 2012!

Kia kaha! Kia ihi! Kia maru! Stand strong and be steadfast!

Oddly, mine is too. Kind of thought the yellow would trump it. Must default to the latest. Ilike green better though it'll take some getting used to.

You can changed it (by changing your default group in your profile)

Wow, I can't believe it! It's great to be inducted with such a great group of people. I DO kind of like the look of green. :)

This has been quite a month for me: not only did I finally win my first real tournament (200pt FrostyCon), but I also finally got inducted into the SWM Hall of Fame (after 4 years). What's next? Maybe I should go to Vegas before my luck runs out.... :D

Thanks very much to everyone who voted for me!
