I didnt vote, but I really loved the first ones earthyness, it really feels like a overzealous squire, while the other interpreted as how a jester would carry books comicly seeming to fall but maintaining perfect juggling balance. I can see that from the remarkable pose. The second one's face though is very expressive andclearly readable, very hard to do in 1/72.

Sorry guys, a bit late again to end this duel but as you can see the voting time is over.
Again a loss for Mr.X who had a fantastic job jone in my eyes.
This figure was hard to paint, but a fantastic sulpt.
Mr. X was up against me, and some of you already reconsed my painting style (shit)
I tried to keep my entry like a secret, first time I didn't took december, but seems that did't work.
Normaly it's me who does get the less votes, so I hope the votes where because of the figure by that!
I must say it was cool to see hof Mr. X placed fhis figure, because I onlu send a printed one to him as a thank you for dueling as Mr. X another year. I like the way he did place his figure on the base as well.
On two feet, instead of one what makes the figure more stabile.
Mine did break his legg just before taking pictures, an ahrrr moment, and the spilled coffee did break 3 times... So a cool figure but a once in my lifetime for me hahaha.
Thanks Mr. X, just one month left for another victory on your name, Go for it!

Congrats once more for both. One of the members, who noticed, that it was your entry, Remco, was me. Mostly because of the cool, funny, civil figure. Con you tell us the brand, please?

I like both entries, but Iik the colourful presentation on one food only. I think it is more dynamic. But the painting of Mr.X was perfect as well.

Once again the two figures presented were of a very high quality of painting, so it was a difficult decision again. This time I bet again on the winner, mainly because of the brightness of the colours used and the light of the pictures (this point is important to emphasize, because in many duels, with equal painting, it's the one that decides the winner). :shock:

My best congratulations for Mr. X and Remco, great works yours! :thumbup:

Hmm, I think I have start looking for a camera at work! Both figures look like me at work, but Remco added coffee so he got my vote.
