Well all, this duel has took some time, but the result was stunning!
The big winner is Cole with his entry "French Voltigeurs".
He was up against "Prussian Grenadiers" made by Peter.

So a big congratulation to Cole, and thanks both for dueling!
Also thanks to the voters on this duel, hope you will vote again the next duel!

Nice dueling. But Cole, weren't they supposed to be four 1806 Prussians? :?
The Hat 1806 Prussian set is soooo ugly, that maybe a closer score would have been possible if both were from the same set.
Either way, good job to both of you :thumbup:

This was a bit hard, but Peter's cheque made the difference. :-D But it didn't help. :oops: Great work both of you and fun to see something from Cole again!

Congrats to Cole and to Peter on their entries. The detail and skill in both is very impressive. I'll have to agree with Ben_Bob that it would have been nearly impossible for me to pick the top man if these entries were of the same 4 figures.

Thx for all the comments guys and for letting me win on my bd Peter. :-)
As for the figs, they are actually from a swap me and Peter made last year. The deal was to paint 4 figs from the sprues we each received. So, I'm not really sure why the rules say Prussians only... :?

Thanks again all!
