And the winner is Cole, who was up against Benno in his first duel here.
Benno did a splendid job on these 6mm figs, but in this case Cole got the most votes.
And Cole had a superb picture, it almost looks real.
Splendid job to the both of you :thumbup:

Thanks for dueling

Wonderfull work of both :thumbup:

But I voted for Benno, and that all because of the last picture. That figure looked so sad when he opened his lunch..... :cry:

Congrat Cole!

Your dio is like a movie scene. I really like the set up and very suitable painting style.

But I voted for Benno, and that all because of the last picture. That figure looked so sad when he opened his lunch.....


:lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: good one! :thumbup:

My compliments to both contenders.

Fell for this one right away. Methinks 'tis is the best work I've seen of yours up to date. Poetic choice of figures, well painted and brilliantly based and photographed....it reminds me of two brothers off to school!

Congrats Cole. I voted for the medieval figs. I especially liked the painting and weathering of the soldier´s shield. Great work.

Benno´s little guys weren´t bad at all. Superb and crisp craftsmanship. But I don´t much like figures where the head makes 50% of the whole figure. :mrgreen: Sam and Frodo would have voted for them :tongue:
