Self modelled figures

Hi all, some time ago (about 2 years) I´ve tried to make my own figures. Here´s the result. The shields, sword and helmet of the kneeling knight were taken from plastic sets, so they are not self-made. The funny thing is, that I wanted such a pose so much and some weeks later Valdemar miniatures brought a battle-set on the market with nearly the same pose

I think that you need to continue to make shapes. I, like many, began to sculpt because there were no such figures, as I wanted. Now many manufacturers are doing a lot of figures. But there is always something that no one will do, or done later. Therefore, I think we should try to do it yourself to anyone who likes it. And I'll always be glad to help and answer questions if anyone would want this.

Yeah....well done .
Same Story , i did 2 falling Knights , was very proud and send an E-mail to Jens with some Images .
The same day Jens wrote back and showed me the 2 Set of falling Knight´s . One Pose is very close to mine , no need to say his was much better . But i need to say it ain´t a very unusual Pose , so to do the nearly same is easy possible .

In Germany we would say
Sachen gibt´s ...die gibt´s garnicht .

Here is a little conversion that won´t make it on my diorama. It´s an english longbowman taunting the french knights. He is one of my first conversions but I realized that he doesn´t fit to the other archers because they are all in action... The basic figure was a french crossbowman from zvezda converted by unsing milliput. Hope you like it :-p

Andreas, a good figure! I would only advise to do an experiment mixing "green stuff" and Magik sculpt.
Ben - I will not say "this guy I like," so as not to cause incorrect laughter ... But it's a great conversion that can do more than any living diorama! Beautiful work!

Ben , well done , lol . Reminds me on Braveheart and i hope it will make it on a little Vignette .
Ilike it very much .
I think you should really try to sculpt more .

Alex , thank you , that is what i´m trying yet , this falling Knight , to be honest is just basic , good for trying movement and proportions . The Details are grap .
And Magic Sculp is completly different to work with , it will need some Practice .
And i still have to take more Attention at the Details . You will see it when the tired marching Knight is painted .
There are some little Mistakes that i don´t redo to show .

I like him....he could be usefull for a couple of things....for instance not only sticking his bum out to taunt but he could be put behind a bush...it looks like he may just be getting ready to have a ****

Very nice conversion, historically I think that the archers showed their bowfingers like a V, and that is why the French did cut of their fingers when they took archers as prisoners.


Best regards

Yes, it´s the origin of the "victory-sign"... I´ve got another archer showing his two fingers but I don´t really like him...
