I almost overlooked this one, it was below an entry of round 1. This reply should fix this.

Both excellent entries of course.
I like my games like my orange juice: pulpy with no added sugar or artificial sweeteners

Both brilliant.  Not voted yet.  Will have to come back a few times and look again.

Brilliant stuff on both entries. I wonder if the Captain won't be disadvantaged by the longer shot.

Both entries go to show how important taking a good photo of your minis is.

Captain, great painting aside, I'm seriously impressed by the creative and highly unusual composition- none of the figures are facing the viewer! Pretty sure I've never seen that done so well. Reminds me of a photo or scene done by someone who was there, slightly behind the troops. Excellent sense of action!

Thanks Matt. I think your beastmen are better painted TBH, and voted accordingly. The shine and crisp execution on their weapons - on all the metalwork actually, including that gorgeous statue - is exceedingly well done.
Alas, my scene does have the advantage of a photogenic tank - a bit of an eye-catcher in its snazzy camo.
It's a tribute act after Keith, who staged a very similar scene with most of the same Perry figures and an FT17 tank in the last LPL - although I think he used a different FT17 model :)
I'd love to tell you the non-camera-facing figure composition is arty and creative. Truthfully though, it's just that with their satchels, webbing etc, the figures have a bit more visual interest from the side / rear than from the front ::)

Brilliant stuff on both entries. I wonder if the Captain won't be disadvantaged by the longer shot. 

Interestingly, I think it's probably the other way round. A slightly longer shot conceals inadequacies in the paint job.

This is the most difficult choice for the round! In the end I went with the beasties, as they're closer to my preferred projects, but damnnnn the painting is crisp as hell on L'Armee!

Really? Really though?
I'll have to roll dice to make a call between these. Brilliant work both of you.
