Contest Entry: What should I choose?

They are having a painting contest over at to celebrate the release of 8th Edition Fantasy Battles. I wish to enter the single model competition and I am torn between the following models.

 First up is my winged Vampire Lord. This guy is going to be my Vampire Counts General so I want to give him a great paint job. The model is very detailed and has a dynamic pose. I think it will be a challenge to paint, but will make an excellent model to showcase my skill.

This is the other model I am trying to decide on. This is a Special Edition Orc Warboss that came with the Collector's Edition of the Warhammer Online MMO. This too will be my general for my Orcs and Goblins. I even have a name for him already, Grubak Skullzbasha. The model is not as dynamic as the vampire but it is just as detailed and it is a more unique model since it is a limited edition.

So let me know what you all think would be the best choice to enter for a painting contest I am going to make my decision by this weekend so I have plenty of time to get it painted. As I usually just paint for table-top quality I want to ensure I have plenty of time and see how well I can actually paint a fig. The contest deadline is July 31st so as long as I start by this weekend I should be fine.

Gotta go with the vampire, that model is incredibly cool, and you're going to have to paint him eventually!

Have to say I agree with Gyro, the Vampire's an incredible model, and like you mentioned has a great pose.

While the Orc's very nicely detailed, I feel it is a bit static, and therefore gives a slightly worse impression in a competition.

Best of luck, and thank you for linking the contest - just wish I'd known about it before I finished a miniature today, just so I could get that WIP-pic with the "MiniWarGames contest entry"-note... Awh well, means I have to find me another miniature to paint!
