Medieval Women

Another great set of medieval civilians from Erik Trauner of  Nikolai..
As Female bods are in short supply in 1/72nd in any era, a specialist set like this is very welcome and I reckon that they could be used in a very large range of eras...right up to the 20th century.
I made a couple of mistakes with the painting. The women with the bag...She has an Apron which reaches only to her waist but before I realised my mistake I´d extended it too far. Also, the mother and child..I painted two pieces of material hanging down from the childs wrappings as part of the Apron...
A rarity , a baby on the mothers breast.

Stage three of the Pirate Cutter. The planking.
Made from strips of thin card it took an absolute age with pinning etc to get all the planking fitted.

  3. I think you are absolutely right Paul, I can't think of any other figure similar to the mother feeding her baby and kudos to Erik for sculpting it. It is, after all, a perfectly natural pose.

    And painting is excellent once again. I struggled to see the errors you say you made so I wouldn't worry about them

  8. Lovely set Paul, and I have to say I wouldn't have noticed the 'mistakes', if you can call them that, if you hadn't pointed them out. Pirate ship is really taking snap now!

  9. All great. And I can barely see what you mean on the woman and baby and the woman with the bag I can't tell at all. In regards to you ship model, if you want to put up the plan that would be great. If you want a discussion, have you put it up on benno's? Either way I'm glad you're sharing it with us.
