Well guys, this was the first duel against mr. X of 2018
(and there are still a few months free for you to choose)
And when I got the entry of mr. X, I tough this will be a winner again, but no...
But there was the next mail from Mr. Andrea with his pictures, looks like a painting so wonderful.
And as you can see in the voting, Mr. Andrea is the winner.
But looking at the painting skills of mr. X.. he is getting better every time.
So good work mr. X, hopefully more luck in the next 11 duels.
And a big hurray for mr. Andrea, congratulations on your win, and thanks for dueling!

Well you can now leave your comments, and maybe you see the fun in dueling,
you can choose a month as well, mail me at bfduel@gmail.com!

Congratulations to both. I`m glad I remembered to vote for one of you.
So the dark-side won which is rather odd,
because nobody actually paints that. ;-) BB

A big thanks to Mr.X. It's been so great with his figures in 2017 that he pulled the best out of me this time, so to have a chance to win the duel. And I am glad, as his emperor is a good one!

Mr. X's entry was excellent and would be a worthy winner of a duel almost any other time. Indeed, like Remko, when I saw the first pic I thought it surely must be the winner.

But I would love to see the figure that could beat Mr. Andrea's Napoleon and Marengo.

Congratulations Mr. Andrea and thanks to both for showing these great figures.

I think Mr.X's entry photographed under the same lighting conditions as Mr. Andrea's would be very interesting to see. ;-)

Sometimes the figures are roughly equal and the best photograph wins. After a careful examination of Mr. Andrea's brilliant entry, I can be fairly confident in stating that this is not one of those times.
