At least you'll be on the third place.

Have a look at the leaderboard, tsar. It's just the maths ... Even winning this round, I'm still 2 points behind you.
Anyway - it was a pleasure, and I always liked your fantastic miniature and photo compositions!

I confess, I never read the mode of calculation, each trun I content myself to pray after having sacrificed a chicken  lol

Thanks for the compliment, but one day I'll ask you some advice about the contrast in your minis, mine are a little bit "vague"

all the same with all four top ranks

it's so close, all about taste - that's the only thing the ranking reveals
I very much hope that one of the three platform positions will be split - this would truly reflect the quality everyone sees here

a pity that the four won't be able to at least take one picture with all miniatures
or better - work together on one vignette
this would be nice

Both fantastic entries. 

I love the dinos in each.

...Pterodactylus is from Papo with some repainting...

Where does tsar1701's T-Rex come from?

Long live Papo then ;). Great dinos in both shots.

This is indeed a very difficult choice. Tsar uses good humour and excellent photography again, combined with some excellent painting. The scenery makes it all look like a movie still.

The same goes for Benbow's. The jungle and backdrop are gorgeous and makes this near perfect. The painting is fantastic as usual and the chess game is hilarious! The painting on the dinosaur is just perfect, but like Mancha, I think the dino is a bit out of place in the shot. That said, it still is your best entry so far IMO.
