Cool duel, and no winner (must organize another duel to fight now)

First entry was made by Bleufalchion (Aaron) and he was up against Kekso (Dalibor).
A fun duel to watch, and as you can see you both are winners!
Two totally different stiles and colors, made it extra fun!

Well done, thanks for dueling

Congrats to Kekso for his fine entry and he even completed it while experiencing a major life event!

A draw! That's the way it goes with Napoleonic Hussar duels, the last one I saw went on for years. :mrgreen:

Not the easiest subject but two great entries here. I would have preferred to see a more close up pic of Kekso's (I just thought of using the zoom button and indeed it does look very nice).

The figures were pretty much equal for me, I liked the socks and mane on Dali's horse, and the less bold highlighting style on Aaron's. Aaron got my vote this time but really, both were excellent.

It was really a tough duel. For me the first pictures with the neutral background were the better option. Sorry Dalibor, because your rider was very well done as well. Thanks for duelling!

Thank you all, especially to Aaron. I was sure he will win.
Taking photos is my Krypronite. I really suck at it. So no need to be sorry Jan.

Great duel. Nappie cavalry always sets for good competitions. Both entries were really good. I voted for Dali; I could see a great horse and finer paintbrush on the uniform. I may be wrong though, that picture really s....ks! :mrgreen:
