My entry for a "competition" over at the Valdemars forumThe rules for entry were;
- Only knights allowed - hospitallers, at least one hospitaller present - Check!
- At least one holy symbol represented, relic, banner, cross, half moon' - Check!
- At least one Valdemar figure - Check!
- At least one animal - Check!
- Needs to be a new Piece of work to take part - Check!
Both the Hospitaller and Dobbin are Valdemar. Dobbin came without a saddle so one had to be made. Got it all base painted but it just didn´t look right....no stirrups!!! Remove saddle, recreate with stirrups (very thin plastic Card) add saddle again.
The helmet is from the Caeser Dismounted Crusaders set.
The crucifix is from the Valdemar Tax collectors set and was carefully sliced out of the sedan chair. Not carefully enough...It broke into 4 parts, the right side of the cross shot off into "never to be seen again land" so that had to be reconstructed. The cross it´s attached to is made from high density styrofoam. The moss is tiny bits of old rubber foam.
Veritas vos liberabit ? A variant of Veritas liberabit vos (the truth shall set you free) and was used by the Knights Hospitaller during the crusades.
Outstanding! Great composition and really presents a feeling of solitude and reflection.ReplyDelete
Excellent modeling. The joining of the foreground to the background scenery is seamless. A beautiful diorama..ReplyDelete
