Well, the most of us could guess who did win this duel....
My good friend Thomas Dürschmitt, who was up against another good friend of my: Rich West
Two mods dueling each other, what a wold, hahahaha.

Personal I found it difficult to choose, both entries where good.
But there can be only one winner, so a big hurray to you Thomas.
And ofcourse a little bit smaller hurray to you Rich.

Thank you both for dueling, let's hope more members wil follow!

Congratulations to both Thomas and Rich! This was a tough vote for me too, but ultimately the shot of the SS trooper laying the charge tipped the scales in Thomas's favor. Both dios made great use of the outstanding Pegasus figures.

Nice job to both entrants! But what's with the grenade thrower in Thomas' first pic? Did he get his head blown off?? :-) :thumbup: :thumbup:

Thanks for your comments and big cheers to Rich. You got my vote for this one mate! The Char B1 looks great. Which brand is the model?

@ColeF: The grenade thrower still has his head on his shoulders. He is hit by the tank commander and throws back his head to his neck in a very theatrical pose. :-)

both entries are interesting with a lot of work and engagement
I think Rich used Airfix's building and tank

I voted for Thomas, because his entry was a bit more convincing to me, more dramatic scene is created
using live background is superb, that was crucial for me
er.. is it live background?

Rich, bricks are painted awesome :thumbup:
