Sorry to say Mr. X but you lost this one...
The winner is Boki (Sho) who did provide this figure
I can say Mr. X told me in advance it was a hard figure to paint.
So congratulation to Sho en better luck next month Mr. X.
Thanks both for dueling, a job well done!

For all who did vote, thanks as well!

Congrats to the man who has never lost a duel here at Bennos Figure Forum, Sho. What a fantastic entry. Mr. X did a very nice job, as well. Quite a clean paint job, and good colors. I think Sho won because he had a fabulous figure, and he found the perfect angle to capture him with the camera.

Hooray to both duelers and hooray for the duels.

Does that mean this is a very small figure? If so I have to commend both duelers for their excellent paint jobs.

Congratulations Sho on a very fine win (I did vote for this one), but if Mr X is not used to painting smaller scale figures then I can only say he has risen to this difficult chalenge quite brilliantly.

Well done! to both contestants great painting on a terrific little figure.

Sho usually creates these types of figures. They are 6mm. I agree that Mr. X did a fantastic job with such a small subject.

Thanks guys for voting! :-)
Now my Drummer sure get what he wishes.. ;-)

But what are you telling about small figure? This is enormously big one!
Three times bigger than 6mm. I even don't sculpt bigger giants than that.

The smaller scale got Mr. X in trouble, while for Sho was like sailing in calm waters, despite the figure is 3 time bigger than his beloved 6mm. I voted for him, but if Mr. X only used white instead of silver on uniform and drums....great duel. Thanks to both. Hope Sho's drummer had a great time after the parade
