    hello Guys,

    When the Marcomanni was drying i did this little figure. It is from Sparta, 54 mm and the fit is exellent.
    Because i was not happy with the flag that was in the box i decided to make a new flag of my own.
    So here are the pictures and critism and comments are welcome as usual.

    Dang. :) Looks darn good, Marc. Your reds are well done.

    The only additional comment that I would make is in regard to the spear and flag.
    I would think that the flag would be at least as dirty/weathered as the shield or lower surcoat. This is only my opinion as I like a "dirty" knight!

    Would love to see some close ups on the harness.

    Marc, looks very nice from here! I too would love some more close ups to see the metal work and the shield a bit better. Good job!!!

    Very nicely done there Marc. I'm sure that some close up will reward this great painting accordingly.

    Looks cool. Is it a Hospitaller or a Knight of Malta? Do you have any close-up shots?

    Any chance you have a link to the manufacturer's site?

    I don't know what he is. But i make a England knight because the knights of England had that red flag with white cross.

    I made some close up as some people asked.
    Maybe i can now have the final judgement.
    I see that there is some fighting going on between me and the camera. The red is turning into orange. Believe me, it is red. ( look at the first pictures)
    Let here what you all thinking off it.
