Humbug, where is all your X-mas feeling hahahaha
The winner is Mr. X so concratulations!
And the big looser.... Me as usual!
But never the less, it was fun.

My figure kept a glossy shine on the pictures, that was a shame.
No photoshop used, and I am worse in choosing the colors.
I like the choice of colors Mr. X used more, and the face of his entry is awesome.
Tried to put some mud on the shovel and his shoes, but the picture did't show good.

Now I am going to make a loosing post on my blog, hahaha
But I want to take advantage of this opportunity to wish you all a happy X-mas and a better 2021.
That was my second tough by painting this figure.
Thanks for voting all...

Ohw and Mr. X will do another duel soon...
So I can't give a name now who he is!
And If you like to be Mr. X 2021, let me know :
It's more fun than you would think, so give it a try...

Sorry Remco, I voted for Mr.X. The face made the difference and also the matt finish. But as allways in the December duels, I like your idea to paint and/or convert the figs!
So thanks again for the entries and the nice duel. I am still curious who is Mr.X this year!

I'm a bit slow on the uptake so I didn't notice that it was Santa's coat hanging on the shovel until after I'd voted. :oops: Even the title didn't tip me off. That was a really good idea for the time of year and very nicely done.

The face on Mr. X's figure got my vote. I'm always impressed when i see a figures face and I think I recognise someone. Is it just me, or is anyone else reminded of a certain modeler of very fine ancient ships?

Even though Mr X:s entry was great I liked Remco's more. And it answers a very important question.

I voted for Remco, too, due to the colors used and especially the Santa coat.

But this is also the best entry Mr. X has done this year. If I could paint faces that well...uncanny. Very well done.

Both figures are fine, good paint and have lovely colors :thumbup:

But at the end I have vote for "I am too old for this gold" because the face is a little bit better :-D
