Welcome Thomas. A great start indeed!! Just one tip if I may, if I were you, I would tone down the metal with some lamp black oil paint and then highlight the extreme highlights only. There were no knights in shining armour in the real world, those existed only in past Hollywood movies

Thank you for your feedback. I will try the tip with metal next time. Sounds good.
I paint with acryl.

I use silver printer's ink mixed with black oil paint for metals. Then shade with black and highlight with pure printer's ink.

That´s a very nice diorama.....
Welcome to the forum Thomas
The rocks, the white ones next to the bush...are they supposed to look a bit like a skull?
If it´s deliberate...brilliant..if not...it looks great anyway.

Yes, the diorama won gold at the "Miniature Challenge" Show at Düsseldorf.
It´s a pleasure for me to show your miniatures. The next Vignette "The Hunter" will be show at "MBC Camouflage" and "Kulmbach".
Thanks and best regards
