And the winner of this duel is Jan (MABO), and it seems Mr.X had taken the wrong colors for this duel.
Both entries well painted, but 2 totally different uniforms. I liked them both and the choice was hard.
Thanks both for another nice duel, and the voters to make it more fun.
Mr. X better luck next time and Jan congratulations.

Congratulations for MABO.
A very nice figure photographed advantageously. :yeah:

nice figure and pose indeed; good choice. Jan got my vote: his painting stile is more neat and precise. He managed better shadows and highlights. I like how he rendered the leather of the sword strap. Yet, the face of Mr. X's figures has the right "battle" expression. Congrats to both

Congrats to Mr.X. The painting-conversion of Russian soldier was very effective. Keeping this in mind I am really happy to win. Thanks to all who voted for me. And better luck next time Mr.X!

Very tough choice for me, I liked both entries quite a bit. I did vote for the second one. I thought perhaps it was from Mr. Andrea. But no, it was Jan! Congrats on your win.

I agree with this view and with all the others expressed here. Both figures were very good. :drool:

As I voted for yours, Jan, I collect your thanks. :mrgreen:

And I join in wishing better luck next month to Mr X. :thumbup:

Both excellent painting. I voted for Mr X's entry as white is difficult to make look so good and I thought it was done really well. That said, Jan's effort was also really really good! One of the best duels of recent times-congratulations to you both!
