And another duel has been come to a end.
It was Mr.X who got the most votes, so Hurray for Mr.X.
He was up against Jan (Mabo).
Both got the same bleu uniforms, only Jan did use a blue trowser as well.
Great that an did do another duel, because others wouldn't take a month.
Thanks for that, and congratulations on both results!

Congrats to Mr. X and well done both duelers. It was a hard choice again this time.

The first entry I preferred the sharper details on the sash thingy and the photograph was better.

For Mabo's entry I preferred the face, hair, hat, and beard. Basically everything from the neck up!

In both cases, I found the background a bit distracting.

Thanks so much for entertaining us with this duel!!!

Congratulations to Mr.X! A well deserved revanche!

I committed to let the duel happen, but in the end I had not the time, that I hoped. So I had to hurry, but was still late. Sorry Mr.X and sorry Remco.

Thanks for the opportunity to paint some Musekteers finally. I really like the range from RedBox and since I am still a great fan of the old (one and only) film from 1948, it is so cool that we have figures to rebuildt it.

I named my pictures "Pour Constance" I think Remco get puzzled with French and English :-D

Finally: Thanks for all who voted for me.

Well done by both duellists! It was more or less a 50/50 decision to me...

Funny that both contenders chose same background color! Yeah, hard choice, and Jan's picture penalizes his work, I am afraid. That blue uniform is worth a closer look, in real life. Mr. X color scheme was more effective and got my vote.
