And another duel against Mr. X has come to a end.
The winner of this duel is Mr. X himself, who was up against Deon.
A cool duel with 2 fantastic painted figures, a job well done.
Thanks both for dueling, and thanks to the other 19 voters, you are great to make a duel more fun.
A shame other members don't wanted to hit the button in this fun section!
Congratz to mr. X and maybe next time it's payback time Deon.

Was difficult to decide. both figz had pros and cons. and even if this is right for nearly every duel, this time it ws hard for me. Maybe the time of vacations was the reason for the low rate of voters here...

Nice to see Deon back in duels! He won over me once! With a very good entry. This time it was the photos that made it for me. Mr X's was better. Both very good entries and I look forward to the next duel!

I second what said by Ian. Hard to make a choice, both figure with pros and cons. I voted for Deon: I saw a higher level of details behind the blurry picture, which may have penalized him a lot. Old story, though. Congrats, to Mr. X!

I liked both entries as well. As others have said, Deon's horse and rider may have received more votes with a sharper picture. But the details and color choices in his entry are well done.

Mr. X had a better photograph, and he succeeded to a greater extent at removing the excess plastic and mould marks.
