And another duel came to a end...
It was fun, in my last bump the score was 10-10
Close all over, but in the end the entry of my good friend Konrad got the winning votes.
He was up against our own mr. X 2017/2018 who just started his last duel today.
So he can try again to win another one now (come on folks, vote!)
Congrats to Konrad (and mr. X) on this nice duel.
It was fun again!

Now before you all leave your comments, I am still looking for a mr. X 2019.

Congratulations, Konrad, I should have seen that it was you. Anyway you got my vote. But it was a close range thing. Hope the duels will continue. And I was already Mr.X. So come on, folks...!

Konrad's entry is really nice. I especially like the details on the quiver and the stripey pants. The hair, beard and face are also well done with seemingly effective dry-brush technique. Finally, his staging and photography are dramatic and allow a very nice view of the figure.

The entry of Mr. X had a more humorous title. Good, close duel. Maybe we will see a rematch?

As usual a very nice duel! And nice entries! And even though I have no opportunity to be Mr X (lack of time and total inability to hold a deadline) I can only recommend everybody to try a duel. I've done in the old format and the new and even if I prefer the old format it is still very fun to duel!

What was the old format? Looser was shot dead for real? After that you noticed decreasing number of forum members and you switched to the new format? :mrgreen:

Yup! Nah the old format was that we contacted each other and came up with a theme for a duel. It could be a little scene, a diorama, a single figure, just about anything. It was fun, but I think the new format is easier to control. And still a lot of fun!

Voted for Konrad as well, but no offense if I say that a flipped coin took that decision. Too closed entries, hard to decide for my brain. Grate duel, nice figure.

Thanks to all who voted for me. :thumbup:

That was really close.
It seems that Mr.X is also a good painter. ;-)

But that is still possible. This duel is old format duel. If I'm not wrong, this isn't monthly duel against Mr.X. Although he was one of duelist. Unfortunately, I think people just lost motivation for dueling. :(
