Well it looks like a clear result.
Sorry for Mr. X he lost this one

After his first duel he has the dueling fever
Well done

Again it was a very nice duel. The much clearer pictures of Norman did the trick in my opinion. Nevertheless congrats to both! :thumbup:

An interesting figur and a rare subject. Therefore congrats to both. The pictures of Norman with a lot of visible details made it for me.

It is always an honor to compete against Mr. X! I'm never entirely satisfied with my metals, and I like the look of how he did the scale armor. I am also interested in what he did with the little shrubbery under the horse's hoof - figure manufacturers include these by necessity but Mr. X has made it look quite natural!

Think I missed this one. Sad, because it looks like a great duel with two very good entries! And the duel fever is hard to get free from, you'll forever think of what you'll can duel with and start with ideas! I know, I've had it for years.

I've voted for brighter image not for better paintjob. I think this time quality of picture won over quality of painting. If the photos were of the same quality I think it would be very tough choice.
