The good Captain's painting is as crisp and exquisite as ever, though I have to say that Hammer's composition is stunning. No one deserves to lose this one, they are both excellent.

Summed up very nicely, Steve.

The crispest paintjob Vs the greatest composition of the round.

HELP!

Indeed both entries are very good, to say the least, but best composition wins!

it deserves to show us close ups of the cages etc. there is some exquistic paintjob there, too!

How terribly unfair to have to choose! Both are excellent entries, and the best of the whole round. I express my criticism to the illustrious moderator for forcing us to choose between them.

The painting in both is great, and Hammers' composition is wonderful.  He consistently puts together settings that are simply remarkable in their interest value.  Richard

I thought Frank v Bugsda was a tough one, but this is a real b'tch.

Those black and white striped trousers look really good. Once this round is over will the matelots slip back into their usual slop issue and hand the nifty striped trousers over to a bunch of Italian Renaissance Mercenaries ready for round 4?

Ah, thanks Peder - that's very sporting of you, but I know all too well when there's no way back in the LPL  :)

First those pesky gypsies, now the bloody parrots  >:(
Having seen the loving work you put into building all those cages and crates and filling them with wonderful little birds and beasties, and having seen your brilliant Arumbaya collection first hand, I don't begrudge you the win one little bit.

(By the way, next time you come to England again, you're staying at Malamute's, not my place).

;)

Aren't the arumbaya the tribe from Tintin and the Broken War? The idol reminded me of it so I looked up my copy of the book only to see the arumbayas!
