Another one for you, unlucky for some: The 13th duel!

The rules were two figures in close combat, any era.

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

Well done both of you for this one.

Again Thomas' paint job is amazing but what I really liked about Paul's vignette was the posing.

To me it really feels as though those 2 are actually going at it.
Two very well chosen figures to put up against each other as there is a flow of movement between them.

What "Practice in a Puddle vs Ouch!" whereby The Knight with the white cross on blue background represents all of us and Thomas is the bod with the Halberd ? ;-) :-)

Thanks guys. But too much honor. I´ve been beaten several times in duels and competitions. Otherwise it would be boring.

And if you look at works from real masterpainters like ONIRIA...two worlds....but I paint more and faster. ;-)

With this one I especially liked the time-traveller in Paul's backdrop. :mrgreen: :joker:

Thomas's colours are vibrant, but Paul's bronze is very good too.

Clean paintjob of both of you :thumbup: It was a hard to decide wich one I should give my vote!

@Je_touche: it happened between the two pictures, on the first one he isn't there, and on the second, voila he's there. He came from the Enterprise, Scotty beamed him down :mrgreen:
