Almost forgot to end this one, busy me :oops:

The winner is Jan (MABO) , he was so kind to do another month against Mr. X
I must say it's a bit a shame so less want to duel here, it's so much fun.
We got so many members, but hardly voters, or who dear to take a schot against Mr. X.
So not sure if we will get enough for 2023 in my opinion.
What is the problem? I don't see it.
Well let's hope a few will say I will give it a try next year.
For now, thanks Jan for filling another gap, and Mr.X for dueling another month.
Just 3 more to go, so good luck next time!

Thanks to Mr.X for the duel. The US Cavalry set from Italeri is one of the ACW sets I like very much, so it was a pleasure to paint a figure again. I have gone some miles since I painted the last ones stored away in my collection. Thanks to all of you, who voted for me. :oops:

I like the darker and more wornout character of Mr.X figure as well. Great paintjob and therefore good luck for the next three duels coming. :thumbup:

Generally I agree with Remco. Please participate and vote. It is both easy and a joy for the forum!

Were you Mr. X's rival this month, Jan? The truth is that it has been a tough duel. Both figures are great. I voted for yours, perhaps because of the bright pictures and the beautiful base, but anyway it was a difficult choice. :sweatdrop:

My best congratulations for both duelists! You have achieved two wonderful versions of the same figure. :thumbup:

I voted for Mr X this time, because of the more realistic view of it! With a nice background you could think it is a real picture! ;-)

Congrats with the win Jan! Also very good painted! :thumbup:
