Well this was again a cool duel, and its clear most votes turned out the winner of this month.
No not mr.X this time, even with his cool entry, better luck next month!
The winner was David, known on the forum as Ildfus Mahler.
A new member who was willing to give it a try, well I guess this won't be his only duel now.
What a fantastic way to enter the duel zone!
Congratulations on a well deserved win, and both of you thanks for dueling.
Also thanks to the 24 other members who did give there vote here!

Just one duel left this year, I will put up a new list for 2018!!!

Congrats on a resounding victory with an excellent entry from Ildfus Mahler! I can't figure out which is better, his top class painting of the figure or his very dramatic photography. I hope this will not be his first and only duel, instead his first of many.

Mr. X did a good job, too. I like the blue pants with the turtle pattern on his figure. But he was up against it in this month's duel.

I loved both entries, but it was the face on David's figure that got me! Huge congrats to both and especially to David! Now we look forward to the December duel and then maybe we'll get to know Mr X a little better. :-D But then we'll need a new Mr X. Oh my! :sweatdrop:

Dear friends,

thanks for participating in the voting - regardless of who you voted for, and thanks for your very kind and motivating words! I am glad you liked looking at my interpretation of the ashigaru as much as I enjoyed painting it.

But I also want to shout out special thanks to Mr X for dueling, and to Remco for organizing the duel! Great job. It won't be my last :-)

Best, D.
