The 8th duel and it is another great one

This is a single mounted figure vs a single foot figure duel, with some basing, no specific period or any other requirements.

You have a week to choose your winner. Once again gentlemen take your places and may the best painter win.
Please leave comments until after the duel has finished

When I first saw this duel, I tought it was Thomas against Paul. Why Thomas? Because of the background ;-) , Francesco!
I like to congratulate both contestants for their beautifull work :thumbup:

I knew that the idea of putting trees in the background was going to be a winning one :lol: :lol: :lol:

that is not Thomas' own forest, is one of the seven hills of Rome (the Gianicolo hill) :-D

congrats to Paul because his scene was more dynamic than mine :thumbup:

So Francesco stole Thomas's background, and Paul stole Konrad's. :lol:

Nice entries both, I especially like the dynamism of the Gaul vs Roman scene, a keen eye for perspective too.
