Sorry for the delay, busy time here...

This was a duel between Peter and Gunnar (Susofrick) and Peter seems to be to strong in this fight, but luckily it's for fun, so congratulations Peter, and thanks both for dueling!

It's so nice to see duels, so if you like to duel there still are a few months left against Mr. X (hint)

Thanks also to the voting members!

One more time I've voted for better photos. Peter's were crisper.
Cool duel anyway.

I love the Streltsi bonus figures and I also loved this duel. Great job by both duelists. Swap the photo quality and you will also swap quite a few votes, most likely!

Congratulations to you both. A great figure well painted by you both. I agree with the comments regarding photos-the bottom photos are not doing the painting justice!

Not sure how I keep missing the vote.
Guess I need to pay closer attention. Always liked the Bonus Figures. Both look good.

Thank you Gunnar! First of all for the figure, which I didn't have in my collection of this kind of figures. It was fun painting it! :thumbup:

Second I would like to thank you for the win, because if you should have taken better pictures you would have won this duel! ;-)

Some day we must do a rematch! :-D

PS: and if someone has more Streltsi bonus he can miss...... please contact me. I miss a lot of numbers of these figures and I have others, so I can swap. ;-)

Thank for the voters and also for the nice comments! :thumbup:

:coffee: Two Champions of the Forum,took part and i missed the fun. :oops:
Yes indeed. However two Strelets figures got a good licking of paint. Both splendidly presented so you two guys are both winners recorded in my dusty leather bound favourites book. :thumbup: :thumbup: BB
