This was the recipe for a good duel I think ...
30 votes, man this is awesome.
The strange part is, most of you did vote wrong, Now Peter won and I lost :mrgreen:
Yeah this duel was between me and my good friend Peter, who send me the figures for the golddigger duel against mr. X last year. We directly arranged to duel also with a figure, and Peter did chooce this woman with her Peter rabbit.
:oops: Because Peter send me his entry before I was started, I toucht this was a bit unfair.
So I told my self, paint het but in different colors, so the duel is more fun and fair.
Unfortunately my work was not good enough for the win, but I thought it was a very nice figure to paint.
I also received a complaint from the point of view of animal abuse, I respect that, so you can see that everyone views it in their own way.

:yeah: Thanks all for the votes, and congratulations Peter!

Very good entries and what a fun duel. I had an inkling that Remco might be one of the contestansts--i know how much he favors peaceful subjects.

Well, not peaceful for the rabbit! Still, our Native friends surely needed to eat, and hunting large game and small an important part of their diet.

Entry no. 2 has better painting on the scenery and rabbit. I thought entry no. 1 had the better face and colors. It seems more likely that her garment would be all one piece and buffalo skin. These are toys and not meant for accuracy, but it was a way to differentiate between two fine entries.

Lastly I will say neither of you dealt with the plastic injection mark on the back shoulder. It would have been pretty easy to smooth it off. There is another potential tiebreaker and an opportunity lost.

Thanks for dueling and now we are in need of an immediate rematch!

One day they will vote for you Remco, and that is when you pay them a bit more as I do! :mrgreen:

Thank you for having this duel with me! :thumbup:

This was a fun duel indeed and I would like to thank everyone who voted for me and Remco! Lots of votes is what we like! :-D

@Aaron: The injection mark is almost on all the Atlantic figures and I'm a bit afraid that when I try to remove it I would damage the figure to much.

@Paul: she is cleaning the buffalo fur. Figure on the right:

@Andrea: we have a duel every year so it is a tradition! ;-)

@Sho: that's another way to look at this duel! :-D

For someone of your astonishing skill, I believe you could have managed it. Something to keep in mind for next time.

I have heard our forum is getting a reputation for only positive comments, so I thought I would offer a potential area of improvement. Yes I know all about the injection marks on Atlantic figures. I own at least one copy of most of the sets they ever made.

I must confess that I had a serious dilemma to choose between both figures, since the quality of both was very similar to my taste. :eh:

My very best congratulations to the first winner and the second winner. :thumbup:

Fantastic duel! To me it was the choice of colours that made the difference, while both figures are excellently painted! So I had only one vote and voted for Peter ;-)

It was a very hard choice, but in the end Remco got my vote. Didn't get any money from Peter. Remco sent me some though.
