VOTE NOW! Monster Hunter International PATCH CONTEST!!!

The entries are in, and now it is time to vote.

Go here to view the patches!

http://larrycorreia.wordpress.com/2009/07/15/monster-hunter-international-patch-contest/

Please post to the comments in this thread which patch you think should become part of the official MHI universe and get a cameo in the second MHI book, Monster Hunter Vendetta. (coming Fall 2010 from Baen).

We have 47 entries.  Please post the name of the patch in the comments. Please only vote once. We authors are easily confused.  Please, tell your friends, post it to your blog, spam the intertubes. (sell more books!) Whoops. That last one was subliminal. 

I will leave this open for this week. At the end of the week I’ll count up the votes, figure out the winner and announce it here.

The Minotaur controversy continues...
Patch Contest Voting starts tomorrow

I have to go with the Middle TN Death Angels, due to a regional bias. (I live about 40 miles north of Nashville) Black Mesa was awfully tempting, though.

I vote for the Arizona Rangers patch. To me, all the ones that actually spell out the company name, or even anything that is too clear of an indication of what it’s about, miss the point that this is a patch that someone is supposed to be able to wear in public among people that have no clue about the nature of the business. Which is actually very common among military patches. Just look at the original MHI patch for guidance on something that gets around the obvious. Even the Arizona one is pushing it, IMHO, but since the public… Read more »

Dorothy showing excellent skeet form and perfect smirk.
And those divine ruby slippers simply MAKE the outfit.
Would have voted for my own but if I can’t produce a proper patch I don’t deserve to win. Damn digital technology. Gonna go wind up the Victrola and listen to some John McCormack 78s.

Aaron T.

This was a tough choice, but I think that I’ll go for professional loyalty over location loyalty.

1. Excite! Chemicus Sum!
2. Arizona Rangers

Still very close vote for me. Kudos to all who designed these patches.
