Both figures were quite well done. My examples of that set had quite a problem with flash and mold marks, and I think entry no. 2 did a slightly better job dealing with those. I liked the colors of no. 2 a bit better, too, although the olive green of no. 1 is certainly valid, especially for early in the campaign.

Cheers Dali on a nice piece of painting from a classic set of figures. It took me three different 'photo-shoots' to get the lighting right! Thanks for the duel invite too; you can be Mister A and I'll be Mister B.

Indeed. But I saw a nicer and cleaner touch behind your lower quality photo. Great duel anyway, and congrats to the winner.
