This was a nice start, and so close... But we got a winner.
Bad start for Mr. X because he did loose his first one.
But with just 1 vote, he can be proud as well.

Dalibor (Kekso) was the one who took the first month.
So big hurray for you, and thank you to be the first of 2021.

It was a nice duel, with 2 totally different styles.

Thanks to all the voters, hope you will vote again on the next duels!

Great start. I have voted for Dalibor, because I like his overall painting style. But the shield from Mr.X is really an eyecatcher. So it was difficult, I think for others as well, having a look at the close outcome.

I did the same, and had to study both entries for quite some time. The shield of Mr. X is really really fantastic, so much so that it nearly swayed my vote.

Firstly, thanks to all who voted. Pity that there were just few of members who did it :(
I'm a bit sad that Mr.X didn't won. As Jan said above, his shield is an eyecatcher and deserves victory.At one moment it seemed he will win for sure. He got 2 votes more than me... then I called some friends and voila :xd: :xd: :xd:

Funny story is behind this duel. Firstly we agreed for another figure. This one.
When I painted it, Remco told me that Mr.X don't have it in the stash so he choose another - this kneeling hoplite. I must admit I haven't put as much painting effort as I did with that Austrian pikeman.

To conclude and stop this bla bla, now you know I'm not Mr.X 2021. and that it was fun.
Congratulations to Mr.X 2021. for taking obligation to entertain us this year.
And please VOTE!

EDIT: Oh yes, I intentionally changed background from my standard dark to white to try to deceive voters that it is not me :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: but I think I've lost some picture quality ;-)

The title of Mr X's contribution said: "my opponent is Kekso!" :P

Excellent work from both of you! It was a hard choice! ;-) :thumbup:

I don't voted for shield. It is decal, right? ;-)
But I voted for Mr. X anyway, because he tried hard. His opponent was so highly trained professional so there seemingly was no chance for Mr. X.

No this shield is hand painted, Mr. X told me how proud he was of the result.
And I can only agree with him, a amazing job!
