    Hi guys . Lately i am painting really slower due to reduced and restricted time . But thats not bad essentially .

    In October a lovely figure will be released by Romeo Models.

    This will be a superb Crusader sculpted by talented Gianni La Rocca (and definately one of my favorites) and painted by specialist Danillo Cartacci (another favorite of mine)

    This is it

    As i had the luck to get an early copy for review purposes, i really could not get my hands of it . I had to paint it !

    But as with the Jula Crusader of Pegaso , i know it will be in many versions on exhibition tables , so i decided to do it a little bit different . To make a small conversion , to be a bit different

    So i tested something like that

    [IMG]

    added a falcon , resculpted part of the hand, and the rear part of the hanging cloth

    Then of course i had to advace the base !!!!

    So i tried something like that

    [IMG]

    And then ..i started to paint

    [IMG]


    That was it . It took me a month more or less but i enjoyed every single second of this one . must be the most pleasing miniature i have painted so far

    I let the pictures talk , and once again i shooted a lot as you ask for them , so please be patient .

    All comments welcome

    Well done Costas

    Bravo Costas

    That is one fine figure - well painted. The conversion works really well.

    Is the falcon from the 90mm Swabia figure??

    Well done once again
