Friday Night Fights [Round 28]

Welcome back fight fans, to Sin City Nevada for another pear of anguish edition of Friday Night Fights! This week’s bout is the battle of intercessor, with veneration and beatification on the line.  Without further preamble, let’s go to the tale of the tape.

Fighting out of the red corner, from the mean streets of Moscow, it’s “Ravager” Red and his “ST. 5065746572“.


And fighting out of the blue corner, from the far shores of Aqua Magna, it’s “El CarniceroCameron  and his “ST. 4142524148414D.


As usual, constant reader, you are tasked with deciding the outcome of this pugilistic endeavor and determine who will receive a week’s worth of bragging rights.  Simply leave a comment below and vote for the model that best suits your individual taste. I will tally up the votes next Friday and declare a winner.

Last time, on Friday Night Fights….

It was the battle of The Bard, with casting autonomy and posh theatre bookings on the line.  In the end, with the help of a last minute vote, “CatastrophicCampistron  and his “Rebuildable Theatre Stage” scored a narrow 5-4 victory over James “Pile Driver”  Pegrum and his “The Tragedy of Julius Caesar“.  Capistron scores his first victory (1-0) while Pegrum runs his record to (0-1).

  1. I’m not sure I can decipher a clear winner in my head here, both seem very similar to me. I think I’m going to have to go with Red’s version. Cameron’s photo is focused on the hands and the head is a little out of focus. I feel like it should have been the opposite.


  2. Here’s a strong vote for Red’s version. I adore the struts holding up the head, and dig what the dk blue “eye” placement does to the overall character. It’s delightful. 🙂

    Cameron’s is fun, but the image looks like a composite and it’s messing up my perception: foreground in focus, mid out of focus, background in focus.


  3. A vote for Red from me too. Both are top quality (and seeing all of these “Mechanical Orthodox” saints are inspiring me to build one myself – great stuff). For me, a key difference is in the choice of background color. Red’s stands out against the green. The black background of Cam’s just blends too much with black of the figure. I also wish the entire thurible on the chain was in frame.


  4. My vote goes to Red as well (wait am I doing this right?). Couldn’t get the composition on mine to work out in the end.

    And also his is really, really good. Love the depth that he gave to the background.


  5. Honestly surprised to not see a single vote for Cameron yet, as I find his superior to Red’s in almost every way. Red’s background is bland by comparison and I’ll strongly disagree with Ted here and say the extra color is distracting. Cameron’s on the other hand has a more meaningful texture going on in the arrangement of those black dishes and the dark colors really makes the bright cloak and halo shine. The way the cloak itself falls also feels more natural to me and the censer is an excellent addition as well, adding action to the scene instead of being just a simple pose.


  6. Tough call, but I’m voting for Cameron’s one here. Red’s model is a fantastic piece, but I think I prefer the more subtle elements of Cameron’s one, like the more spindly neck struts and the chain he’s carrying. The background is also more complex and, ultimately, more memorable in my opinion.


  7. Im voting red. Single issue vote for me. I like the finger positioning better.

    But i also feel the need to say it was dam close. Litterally just that one feature decided it for me. I didnt like choosing between two options that were so simmiler… But what are you gonna do? You gotta choose or else why go to da fights am i right?

    I did however like tying the FNF to an artical from the contest. Good weave.


  8. The background on Red doesn’t do it for me. It takes me out of any focus that may be on the head due to photography. Cameron’s robot priest has a very interesting pose, holding a lantern (?) toward the camera as if stalking a trembling heathen up in the belfry. I do prefer red’s garment, but the sense of a story behind Cameron’s build has me sold, and Blue gets my vote.
