Strelets Medieval Britain (Pt 2)

Another  Handfull finished from the increasingly hard to find and  increasingly  expensive Strelets Medieval Britain  set.
I´ve said it before and I´ll say it again, Strelets definately needs to re-issue this lot.
This was part one
 IMHO, the bod hobbling on one foot really has a look of being downcast about his injury.
At PSR they refer to this pair as a Doctor and attendant. This is Logical but they could easily be used Cooks or handworkers.
My Axe is bigger than yours.
The bod on the left I reckon is supposed to be leading a nag, which, when I find a suitable one (with or without rider) he´ll need rebasing....I loath rebasing!!!
If the double bod "vignettes" are counted as individuals, that makes 15 painted  from the 33 foot bods in the set. At this rate I should have the foot bods finished in..? ...2021 :-)

  4. Oh I'm jealous, I didn't realize soon enough the interest of this set, I never bought it... Very nice Paul-standard-painting, the master of all Medieval things :)

    1. If you can get hold of it do..one day it will be so rare and expensive it will pay for your retirement. Luckily I got hold of two sets, one with the full box and one loose set still on the sprue. I´m keeping it until either Strelets re-release them (possibly never) or I can find some one who can make copies..for personal use only though.

    2. Totally agree; a cracking set. After much searching the other year I managed to get a set from ITALY (!!!) - since UK proved a dead loss (yet again)....
