    Hello Guys . This is a project i have been working a long time , and now came to an end
    To make Vlad the Impaler or most well known as "Dracula" mounted .

    [IMG]

    A few historicals from Wikipedia:

    Vlad III, Prince of Wallachia, more commonly known as Vlad the Impaler (Vlad Ţepeş in Romanian), also known as Vlad Dracula, or simply Dracula (1431 – December 1476), was a Wallachian (present-day southern Romania) voivode. His three reigns were in 1448, 1456–1462, and 1476. Vlad the Impaler is known for the exceedingly cruel punishments he imposed during his reign. Impalement was Ţepeş's preferred method of torture and execution.

    In the English-speaking world, Vlad III is perhaps most commonly known for inspiring the name of the vampire in Bram Stoker's 1897 novel Dracula.

    As prince, Vlad maintained an independent policy in relation to the Ottoman Empire and was a defender of Wallachia against Ottoman expansionism.

    I used Author Sculpt naked Horse as a base and the head of Beneito Vlad in so called 54 mm that stood perfectly for 70 - 75 as the figure of Beneito is indeed close to 72mm.

    i just hope you like it , as it was a romantic idea to do him as i had him in my mind

    Thanks for looking

    Costas,
    he looks very powerful and powerful character, the way you have done him.

    Also a bit sinister too!

    Excellent results!

    I really like the idea of a mounted Vlad Costas, great idea! I think the head is too small for the body though, it looks out of proportion to me. Your groundwork is in it's usual outstanding form though.

    Bro,

    A well designed and planned figure has been transformed into an atmospheric scene with a wonderful choice of colours. I think that this painted horse is your best ever (excluding the byzantine one as it had a lot of armour!).

    Many congrats,

    Nick

    Hello Costas!

    Nice work my friend. But the pistol isn't correct historical! We are in the 15th Century. The first pistols were used just in the late 16th Century.

    Congratulations!
    Cheers,
