Why does this thing have to be so heavy?


This is a figure that I have waited years to paint.  It is definitely very different from the typical banner bearer!


As I mentioned a few days ago in one of the basing posts, I made the base a little bigger so that I could offset the weight of the icon.  Good thing I did!


A very interesting figure...

  2. It is always nice when you get your hands on a figure that you have always wished to have/paint/model. Nice job anyhow!

    1. Thanks! In fact, it sat half painted for many years. Then it was mostly repainted :-)

  3. This is one of my favourite models from you.
    The helmet visor is very contrasty, looks like the figure is bigger than 28mm.
    Especially nice how you repeat the process on the Fluer de Lis, and other metal icons.
    The previous pics of sisters were a bit grey, but this one shows the colour scheme
    to its best advantage.
    Lovely!

    1. Thanks! I will have to reshoot the previous minis on the new backdrop. Also, those other images were not taken in my studio setting.

      Thanks for the reminder! I almost forgot!!
