Well this was duel nr. 3 for this mr.X
And he did win with 15 votes, well done! :yeah:
He was up agains Dalibor (Kekso) who got 9 votes.
Also a great entry, but sorry not strong enough to win.. ;-)
This must be a new duel for you in the future I guess now...

I would like to thank both of you for this nice duel,
and the 23 voters who did make it more fun here!


And for you:
If you like the duels here as well, there are still a few months left, see here

Congrats to Mister X and to Dali too. Somewhere along the way Remco said voting was 'easy' to encourage more participation, but this was one of the hardest choices for me. Both are very well painted figs IMHO, and after much scrolling it was the muddy trousers in Mister X's entry that tipped it. Really great brushwork here!!!

Big congratz and thanks to Mr.X on well deserved win. It was pleasure to duel against you.
I must admit that my entry wasn't historically accurately painted. But I don't think that was (only) reason that I lost.

No! But are you the one who's going to tell him that he needs a new pair of glasses? Not me! I see him in person at FIGZ, and you never know what he will do with me when I tell him this! :mrgreen:
