Well it was clear who did win this one...

The winner is a rather new member: Eugenij
with his "Bavarian officer 30 years War"
So a big hurray on your first duel, congratulations!!!
Always nice to see a new member taking part on a duel.

And our mr.X...
Well done as well, I liked the stripes on your figure,
but in this case those details weren't enough, next month more luck?

Thanks both for dueling, it was a nice one!

And if you like to duel mr. X as well, look here for a free month.

Phantastic result, Eugenij. Your figure is wonderfull and a worthy winner. Sorry for Mr. X, but the result was obvious. I never painted 30 Years Figures. So this might be initial, as far as I plan to add some pikemen for the GB 2016.

Both figures are excellent painted! But the figure of Eugenij looks like it jumped from the canvas of a painting! :shock:

Keep up the good work, Mr X. You're doing well! :thumbup:

Both figures are nicely painted, but Eugenji set a new threshold here, hard to beat. Congrats!

Fun duel, thanks to both for the entries. I knew in just seconds that I would vote for the second figure, but I could not exactly say why. Then I studied both hopefuls at length. The second one benefits from superior lighting and the angle from which the camera is addressing the subject. The quickshading on officer number 2 is also very well executed. That sky blue and white sash, wonderful! Finally, I looked into the face of number 2 and saw pure humanity.

Great job to both. Mr. X you did well, but Eugenji was just too strong.

In a way you're right. But If we would think like that there might be no dueling at all.
On the other hand you're great painter too and remember that it is all for fun ;-)


BTW: Congratz to both duelist, it was fun... and we need more votes - duelist deserve it.
