Forgot to mention, the 'coons are 20mm. I usually put that in the title.

Those Raccoon's are fantastic sculpts. So charming and well painted.

Excellent work here today.

They're both outstanding entries, but I confess, you had me at raccoons. They have so much personality!

Hunters become the hunted! Clever setup, great painting.

Love the raccoons too, great painting on such small critters. Anthropomorphized animals are too much fun :)

Both of these are very well done.  Basing, painting and scenery all come together nicely to tell a great story.  Tough choice indeed.

This was very, very hard to call. I loved both pieces. Superb gentlemen, totally superb.

I still haven't decided on my vote, but I think the yellow of that monster's teeth is perfect.

At the same time, 20mm raccoons in fustian are top shelf.

Thanks, everyone! The voting started out pretty even, but I think Old Coast has a solid lead, now. Great entry...amazing detail and shading!

Once again, I appreciate all the kind comments...
