And the winner is.... Mr. "X"
He was up against our own Kekso (Dalibor), who was a bit to tale, but still did manage to paint the figure.
A nice duel again, thanks both for another duel.
For the members who forgot to vote, good news a new duel is on his way!
Thanks all for this nice duel, and congrats Mr. X on another duel!
Better luck next time Dali, thanks mate!

Big thanks and congratz to Mr.X. When I saw his figure's plume and shield rim I knew I will loose.
Despite that it was a pleasure to duel.

Kelso--

I REALLLY liked the way the flesh turned out on your entry. I suspect that aspect won you several votes. Will you share the basics of how you create that flesh look, or post a link if you have done so elsewhwhere?

Bad choice and tough luck Gunar. :xd:

@Bluefalchion. It is very simple. I painted basecoat with Vallejo Basic Skintone. Then I used Reikland Fleshshade wash from Games Workshop over it.

Congrats to both! Really hard choice this time, I wished it could end with a tie. My vote to him for the shield and the comb; I didn't like that excess of ink on the armour though. IMHO Better highlighting and shading on Dali's figure.
