Congrats to Ben90 on his impressive and well-deserved win. How you managed at this scale to paint that look of contempt on Caesar's face astounds me. Congrats also to the runners-up Santi and Kostis! :yeah:

Congratulations to all of you. All entries are worthy winners and very good ideas as well. The scene from Ben90 is a true masterpiece again!

Really nice entries. Congrats to all contenders.
@Ben90: a well deserved victory, a very nice dio. I like the variety of poses that you managed. I admit I thought there was my friend Konrad behind it; maybe because I saw so many Romans from him lately.
@Kostis. Great to see the sea and feel the wind. I almost smell the salt in the air. I like the pose and the predominance of blue.
@Santi. Well, out of usual scale, but a nicely painted dragoon, really! I saw it has hard time to get there, but it is a just third position.
Thank to all. I don't know if i follow with more passion these countries mpetitions or the Champions League?

My congratulations to the winner.
My compliments to all the participants, especially santifernantez, with whom could have different places if the initial draw was different.
Last but not least, I want to thank everybody who voted so I could participate in the final.

Congratulations to the winners.

Three masterclasses in depicting very different kinds of clothing here, mail armour, soft fabric and stiff old weather beaten leather. and they all look totally real.

Great entries in this competition and some difficult voting choices. I feel that several entries suffered from photos that didn't focus on the figures quite enough, some of you might have missed a vote from me simply because I couldn't really see how good your figures looked.
