These are both very different and yet equally excellent!!!

Good job to the two of you! (and now the matter of choosing one...)

They are both really nice. I couldn't really decide from the quality of the painting itself. So in the end I chose for different reasons (which I'm not going to tell in order not to influence anybody  ;D)

Both great entries lads. The maskvisors on the explorers are done very well.

The indians are just awesome, with all the different bright colours and the great background. How did you make does dwellings?

The space-factor won it for me. Both good entries!

Ooh, tough one.  The Mars explorers have great color contrast, nice whites, and the masks are great.  It would have taken a lot to trump all this, but the whole scene of the wardancers...well...  :o

The red bases and the masks on the Mars Explorers are top notch  :-*
Frank's wardancers are amazing, what a characterful scene    :o

Yes, those Mars explorers are really nice figures with great paintjobs and bases, and they look like 20mm figs too which makes the painting even more excellent. But the world is a harsh place and the Wardancer entry simply has more variation, and where do those awesomely big trees come from?

I really like the visors of the martians versus the atmosphere of the indians.  The pendulum sung towards the wardancers in the end though.

Wow! Tough competition indeed! Awesome wardancers, awesome paintjob, awesome terrain. You've got my vote Frank!
I quite like my little astronauts, but in this match up I consider myself outclassed. :)

Both fantastic.

Thanks for the kind words everyone! The miniatures are from GZG's 15mm range.

EDIT: it just occured to me; am I allowed to vote?!  :o
