King Richard The Lionheart´s return

King Richard Lion Heart is coming home!!!! I´ve given him as a "generic" look as there seems to be sooooo many pictorial versions of him on the web.
The bods and nags are from Valdemars Tax collector set, the rest of which will get finished later 
And the bods are removeable so they can be used elsewhere and I  can re-use the base :-D

  2. Very nice Paul! And the model of King Richard looks nothing like Sean Connery which has to be a plus!!

  9. He looks great. Love the leopards of England on the caparison. I also like the stern impression, as if he's thinking of what he's going to do to Prince John when he gets home. Well done.

    1. Thanks David
      King John? He´s been replaced in "my world" by Hugh Jarse and his evil tax collecting plans. Robin is in the "hood" and will make his appearance to revenge the tax revolt death at the village of "styrow on the foam" (when the weather gets better)
      Cheers

  14. Thanks for sharing this excellent work. I admire the painting, and really like the photography. The backdrop fits well with the base-work and the poses of the watchful crossbowmen.
    Huzzah!

  22. Natural and quite lovely!

    I remember painting my 'Lionheart' many years ago, for the 3rd Crusade, with the 3 lions badge we all know and love, only to be told at that time Richard used 2 gold lions, standing on their hind feet, facing each other!

    I think you are ok for this period of his history though!
