Both entries are very cool! I don't know too much of Judge Dredd apart from what's in the movie (including The Angel Gang) but I the paint job certainly looks good. I also love these colours on those RT pirates, very, very cool! :D

I think this shows GW should go back to those old sculpts, so characterful!  :D

Greetings

@Laughing Ferret
I totally agree (in most cases)

I'm completely in awe with the Rogue Trader Guy in the upper left corner, first pic. He has a kind of "bad ass" attitude which is remarkable.

I love the middle guy from the Angel gang. Probably because of his eyes he makes me smile

The middle guy in the angel gang looks like Anthony Kiedis in RHCP when he still got long hair. Both entry are nice in different ways, hard choice...

Two great entries, crisp painting and great models. Though I do like the dredd miniatures, the 1st set up win this round for me. Did you specifically make the scenery for this? I don't recall seeing many backgrounds at your pictures and I have to say I like it, it just adds a bit more to the pictures for me,even though it seems that scenery has a few damages spots  ;)
Why aim for gold if you can get lead?

To be honest, I believe that I can get a better photos without the terrain in the background. The focus always seem to be off. We will see how the rest of the comp goes.

Thank you. This is the first photograph I ever took of miniatures. I need to practice (a lot  lol lol). I discovered it is an art. Last 4 days I took more/new pictures for round 2 and 3.  ;D ;D. You are the deserved winner.

I'm just getting into the terrain side of photography but I have to agree with this statement...I think I get a better Technical Photo with a gradient background...but for the LPL I believe that Pictures with terrain get more votes...and frankly are just more interesting.

Cheers,

Wow, those rogue traders take me back, I've enjoyed the old lead theme. Two great entries and two excellent choices of figures. Well done guys.
