And again a duel has been come to a end.
Just 20 votes, and with 75% a clear winner: Mr. X
Congratulations to him.
He was up against Pieter, a not very active member here on our forum.
But an example for all the other members, he dears to duel!
Well done Pieter, hope you want a rematch now!
For all the 19 other voters, thanks for making it a real duel.
And all our other members, I don't know why you don't join, a shame.
Hopefully next duel we can count on your support.

Now it's time to leave your comments!
Next duel will be up this sunday!

I liked both entries, both were well painted with a nice highlighting technique.

Unfortunately only the rear view photo of Pieter's figure was showing when I voted, perhaps a problem with my computer. Mr. X got my vote because I could see the figures face and I thought he looked a bit like Michael Pate (most cinematic first nation warriors do look like Michael Pate), and because it was a bit more colourful, I liked the purple shirt.

A very nice duel! Seen some of Pieter's work here and liked it, but here I liked MR X's entry a little bit more. Can only agree with Remco, dueling is great fun!

Congrats to Pieter for challenging Mr. X! Both figures were very well painted. I think those additional color touches made by Mr. X on shield, belt and spear led him to victory. Nice duel again

It is nice to see those Atlantic figures from yesteryear in a duel, although they bear no resemblance to any historically accurate depiction of the subject. I thought it was cool to see each painter follow a different strategy for painting the warrior. Both figures and photos ended up looking good. I think the shield may have been the deciding factor.

Voted on the very last moment, but the decision was allready fallen. Never mind I voted! ;-)

Congrats to both of you! I really like that Atlantic figure! :thumbup:

Congrats to both and for me it was a duel to honour the work of Atlantic classic figures.
