  • Running Vikings or wolvesDateWed Nov 16, 2016 2:33 am

    Hello all,

    After our last project was finished 2 years ago we took a break from 1/72 scale and went back to 1/35 and 1/16 scale.
    But now we started again with Fredericus Rex's Church.
    We want to make a procession towards the main gate, a funeral on the side of the church and fleeing nuns and monks on the other side. But those people need to run for something. I like the idea that they are fleeying away for Vikings, but I can't find running Vikings. Another option would be wolves! I've seen them but can't recollect where!
    Can some-one point me in the direction of running monks or wolves?

    Any help would be appreciated!

    With regards,
    Rob

    Hi guys,
    Thanks for the remarks! But how could we improve the "sterile" look of the city?
    We'll take this into account for our next project, because we call our city finished.
    The next project will be the Greenline church, with a procession near the main entrance, a burial scene to the side of the church, and with a scene with fleeing nunes chased by either wolves or vikings on the other side. But this could take some time because I need to finish a few 1/16 tanks, and Cordula has a few 1/35 Landwasserschleppers waiting!

    Anyway, here are some more photo's:

    I'm sorry for these photo's as some are not so sharp as I wished them to be!

    With rergards,

    Hello all,

    After about 2.5 years Cordula and I finally finished our Medieval village.
    This was our first diorama ever, and I have to say that for a first project it was probably too big!
    All of the buildings came from Greenline, and almost all figures are from Valdemar.
    Anyway, here are the photo's:

    2 knights from adjacent village appear at the gate, causing a call for more soldiers at the gate:

    Also visible is the pranger pole with the crowd yelling and throwing stuff.

    An accident in progress, a worker let the rope go, causing a sack to plummet towards the ground. Different people are yelling to get out of the way:

    A view of the marketstalls:

    The red light area of the city:

    The last 2 photo's were made earlier during construction, and the woman in blue in the first photo is lifting her skirt to annoy the clerics.

    This is an overview of the city:

    This is the interior of the gate:

    This is the side of the village, with the red light area on the right.


    Later this week we'll try to make more detailed photo's.
    Until then let us know what you think about it.
    And for those of you going to the Scale Model Challenge in Veldhoven this weekend, we'll show our diorama there!

    With regards,
    Rob und Cordula

    Hello all,

    When or where are these sets available?
    We can use the seated figures for our village.

    Hiep Hoi and Hallo,

    Time for a small update:


    This knight is painted by Cordula, and will be placed before the gate where he's stopped and questioned by the guardsmen.




    Here the knight is gathered with some Asterix and Obelisk figures, also painted by Cordula.
    We don"t know the manufaturer of these figures, but we know he did some romans as well.
    Any one knows where to find these????



    This scene is taking place above the bar/pub, and as you can see the building isn't ready yet!

    Thanks for looking,
    Rob und Cordula

    Well, unfortunately we don't have the skills to make our own figures!
    Even in 1/16 scale (which is my favorite scale for tanks and figures) I hardly manage to convere a figure, let alone sculp my own figure.

    Anyway, I found out that the figures are from Kamar:
    http://kamar-zinnfiguren.de/catalog/prod...roducts_id=6995

    Today a box arrived from Fredericus with the last 2 houses and a couple of figures, so in the coming weeks our City will expand!
    I almost hope the summer stays as shitty as it is right now, as it means more modelling time!

    Hi Paul,

    I don't know anymore, but he and his 2 friends (the one sitting next to him and the guy across the table) are from a series of 17th century figures! I don't think they are from Valdemar/Fredericus Rex range, as soon as I remember what they are from I'll post it!
    We knew the couldn't really fit in our Midlle Age village, but we like to think they are foreigners wearing strange clothes!
    If some-one has a tip for more drinking people, let us know, we would like to make a terrace or a "Beergarden".

    GRReetz,
    Rob und Cordula

    Hi there,

    Thanks for your help! In the meantime-besides work and other projects- we have finished a pub with a few guys in high spirit.
    The guys will be visible from the side, in stead of leaving out the whole wall, we choose to widen the 2 windows.



    And started to grow some grass outside the city.



    We ordered the last 2 houses (shop and smithy) and a few figures.
    When the pub and the remaining 2 houses are finished we can think about the final lay-out of the city.


    Viele Grüsse/Regards/groetjes

    Hello all,

    This is my first post here on this forum, so let me introduce myself first!
    My name is Rob, 45 years young and I live in the Hague in the Netherlands.
    My biggest hobby is modeling 1/16 scale radio controlled tanks.
    I've visited a lot of modeling shows and fairs, and so I came in contact with Fredericus Rex, and I always loved his stuff.
    Then I found the love of my live, my girlfriend Cordula, who became interested in modeling as well.
    So, when visiting a show together, we bought 2 of Fredericus Rex his houses from the Medieval time.
    One thing lead to another, and now we're making a big Medieval city, placed on a photoframe, 70cm X 50cm's!
    Here are a few photo's:




    And the inside of the Gate house:


    As this is our first project together, we're still in the learning progress, but we have lot's of fun building and painting.
    We are working on it now for about 9 months or so.
    Cordula does most of the figure painting, while I do the building and painting of the soldiers.
    Now we gonna finish the walls first, (the short wall and corner tower are already glued in position) and when the Gate house is finished I'll glue the other parts of the wall in p osition, and then paint them and blend them in together.
    The houses, well and punishing thing ( I forgot the name) are not in position as we still need some houses to finish (Stadthaus) and buy! If you have any suggestion for houses, other then Fredericus Rex, let us know!
    Also I would like to know what the difference is between 1/72 and 28mm?
    At the mirliton website are a few accessories that we could use (Candleholders and plates with food and so on) but I don't wanna waste money when the are way out of scale!
    So, if you have any comments and tips, don't be afraid to share them, as we would like to improve our skills!

    Rob and Cordula
