    Another excellent figure by Michael !!!

    There's a little typo in the title that could be misleading. The correct spelling is Kontraros.

    Ron,

    He's got his own company, Michael Kontraros Collectibles. For many (all?) of the ones he's sold so far, he's done an indiegogo presale. Here's the link to his current one
    https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/eternal-crusader-miniature-by-michael-kontraros
    Keep an eye out after this one finishes. You might be able to preorder this new figure and save a few euros.

    I love Michael's fantasy sculpts, but it's nice to see him releasing a historical one too. Well... historical-ish. There is that dragon head on the base.

    And, ChrisP, fantastic painting on that one! Yes, please post more picture!

    This has got to be the mounted figure of the year!!!

    I am absolutely speechless with this gem. I think we are all aware of the immense talent of Michael Kontraros, in many fields of figurine modelling, but this beauty raises his bar quite high!

    An astonishing wonder, Drenth! Thanks for sharing!

    The dragon's head is a separate piece of the kit and not one piece with the base for those who doesn't wish to do a St.Geroge's version but (with no adding the head on the base) you can do any 15th-16th century knight you wish with full plate armour.Chris.

    Would probably not do a full fantasy paint but I do like where they kinda cross over ,already got a base Idea for this one :)

    Just STUNNING , the best mounted figure for a very long time . I can see this being a regular at Modeling Competition so much to paint and with unlimited colour schemes .
