Medieval Haymaker

A mini-dio for the 10th painting comp at the Valdemar Forum.
I don´t have much chance ..not against one of Mich´s Dios...he does some incredible stuff..well worth looking at on his site, Michdioramas
Still..it isn´t the winning..it´s the taking part.. trying to  create something original that fits within the guidelines.

The guidelines for the comp are;
Make a battle diorama (2 figures or more) , the bloodier the better
At least one ValdemarMiniatures figure
Deadline 1st of december


My idea is to have a peasant getting his own back against one of the kingsmen....:-D
The Haymaker  delivers a Haymaker   ;-D
The kingsman is from Valdemar, the Haymaker is from Zvezda´s medieval peasant army..converted from the bod far left, bottom row.
One thing that´s really annoyed me with the pics..that bit of flash under the peasants fist!!
The blood I recreated by hanging the bod upside down and  adding a small piece of silicon, gently pulling it into thin threads with a pin as it dried and then painted it red.

  4. I was preparing a witty aside along the lines of 'Are you sure it's hay it looks like straw to me?' while the page was loading, but...that's a Haymaker all right! Very nicely done!
