Medieval Sailors

Turning  a bit  Medieval here at the Moment...17th post of the year and it´s looking as if the next couple will also be medieval themed.
Another Little group of bods for the 1329 dio, VA177 "Ship Crew" by Valdemar Minis.
11 bods and one  hound.
The whole Crew and hound. Exactly what the one (leaning on the hound) is doing or meant for, I don´t know. Hauling a rope? A Scene from Shakespeare?
Sitting bods. The kniggit I´ve painted in the Town Guard´s colours. Maybe he´s the captain of the guard off to make a closer inspection of some of the ships.
Which one of the  finalists of "Village idiot of the year" will win the rabbit impersonation contest?
I don´t think Willard Red Cap has really got the idea but, then again...I suppose that makes him more of an idiot than the other three.
The hound´s pose is Forward leaning as it´s meant to be Standing up against the side of the boat.
The set Comes with 4 oars..which I´ve painted but not attached to the bods as  (I assume) they can only be added when the bods are in situ.

  1. Nice figures Paul.
    The last picture is, I assume, 3 men and a dog all stretching before running a 10K?

  2. Take the bunch from the third photo, put them in a shell and they can be Oxford's first crew.

    1. Thanks Michael. I don´t think he knows what he´s doing...suprised at what the hound is up to behind his back maybe?

  4. Maybe the dog guy is a begging for work?

  5. Great as ever Paul. The 'rabbit impersonators' would make good bases for Monty Python style squires, turn the hands and put in coconut shells and pop on a huge backpack and your done!.

    1. That would be fun.I know there is a Holy grail set in 28mm but one for 1/72nd would be brilliant.

    1. Yep..you got me, I do like medieval stuff :-)
      Odd though...just over 900 Posts and less than half are medieval..it does feel that there´s more medieval stuff than anything else...maybe I didn´t Label early Posts properly.

  7. Excellent looking figures Paul. The rowers do look odd without their oars.
