Hi all,

This is actually a small set which will be released soon. i did get the samples from the caster and just had to do a small diorama with it showing King valdemar and another Danish knight taking a pagan warrioe into their custody. Initially I did the scene and primed all the parts:

primed version
primed scene, before painting

Then I did work on the ground and the two pagans:
Ground finished
Ground made, but not finished
ground with one of the mounted figures

And naturally the two knights, only photo of one of them
king valdemar painted knight

And after some hours of work I took these fast shots of the diorama, will try to make some better ones shortly
completed scene quick photo
finished diorama, quick photo


I think that this small set must be an interesting one as it is a small story in a bag


Best regards

Hi Mich,

Thanks for the comment. Do you think that I use to little or to much shadows on the figures?

A really beautiful vignette!
I love the heraldic! .... never grandstander how you can paint so beautiful ones..
for the shadows, it's difficult to say, in my opinion: it depends of the source of light you've used....
(it seems that is artificial light, no?)

agree with you Mich, but it's difficult to say because of the light!

Hi,

Thanks for the comments, and I do agree. I did actually add some black ink to the knight on the chainmail to give it a deeper look and also to make it look much less shining. For the horse I did not alter


Best regards
