 :o Toughh one really!
Keith, your smooth transitions and especially your work on the dark skin are superb. Care to share your recipe of the latter?

Jan, your entry is a true „Lt. Hazel“ again. Wonderfully painted miniatures in a scene full of action. The shields and banner are simply gorgeous.

Two Game of Thrones entries from four  :o 8)

Jan, another geat scene and a wonderful selection of figures. Great work on the heraldry too  :-*

Keith - your customary sharp-as-a-knife paintwork, and so much character brought out of those miniatures.

Lovely work, both.

I think he's a Claymore Casting, along with some of the others?

Thanks, Browsing the range now :P
I have to say they should contact you for pictures because I would miss the models looking at unpainted examples in their catalogue!

Brilliant work Jan - a perfect setting for those excellent figures. Beautiful painting as always.

I’d second the Claymore 100yrs war French range. They are spectacular figures and in my post lpl queue.

I've got vertigo going back and forth between these two.  normally you can find something that stands out that separates the two entries but this may be the hardest choice I made in umpteen years of the LPL, both pictures are perfect

What's the rule on penalty shootouts :)

Congrats, lads. You've done yourselves (and us) proud.

Lovely figures there, Keith. My favourite bit is actually the Corduroy.  :)  And those Bolton boys are fantastic, Jan.

Something always told me they were reading Tommy wrong...
