Well this was the first duel of the new mr. X against the old first mr.X...
Yeah he was up against my good friend Peter who started the mr. X idea.

Now who was the winner, sorry Peter it wasn't you...
Our new mr. X did win his first monthly duel!!!
Congratulations to mr. X a job well done, 83% can't mis I would say.
A nice entry, especially the second picture was much better quality!

Maybe the title "私は、集束滞在するんです!" scared voters off Peter :mrgreen:
it seems to say "I've got to stay focused!" in English.
But never the less, a cool entry and nice you took the first month.
(with such a loss I feel a rematch coming)

I would like to thank the 28 voters besides me for making the duel more fun!

Now who is willing to take a duel against mr. X?
We are looking for March, April....
Look at the list here
mail me at bfduel@gmail.com...
There must be someone who can beat him I guess...

I am also very happy that we have a Mr X this year too! And (sorry Peter, I do like you and your work, but) it is very nice that Mr X gets to win his/her first duel! So good start! Both figures are very nice and I have no idea which I voted on.

Did I loose? OMG! :eh:

No I wanted to kick of this series of duels with the new Mr X, like I did last year with the previous Mr X! That I loose this one doesn't matter! It was fun!

Congrats Mr X with your win and I wish you a very good year! ;-) :thumbup:

And thanks to all who voted! :thumbup:

I was surprised by the vote spread, too. I thought Peter's entry was actually pretty good. His photo was much more straight-forward compared to Mr. X's entry.

So this was my very first duel as Mr. X. I was mentally prepared to lose all 12 duels in 2017, so this was a pleasant surprise.

I think the key for me was finding a good color to paint the uniform. After quite a bit of research! This is vallejo middle stone if I recall correctly. I had a reverse of the second, superior photo, but after looking carefully I saw that all the paint got knocked off of the pistol, so I reverted to an earlier shot.

My opponent, Peter, let me choose the figure for this duel. It was quite a start.

It shows the funny answer, reaction and the spirit of BFF.
