    Stunning painting on the figure.....if I may.....I would matt coat the stonework...and use some pastels to make it more dusty.....otherwise...all good (y)

    Brilliant painted version of this figure. As per the comment of 'Kagemusha' above, the stones could do with toning down to remove the yellowish hue and compliment the figure even more.

    Beautifull painted and that basework put him in the right environment.
    Excellent.

    Superbly done, but surely Coeur de Lion, not a Hopitaller!

    Thank you Mike. To be honest I am not into much of historical references when it comes to the miniatures I paint. I just pick the themes I like to paint. The title is yes, misleading, but is the original title of the Pegaso figure, so to be 100% honest I didn't know how to name him. When I was considering options I knew I wanted him to be in red and then I googled 'Lanister GoT' from the TV show and the lion came up and I said 'OK! I like this, let's try'. At first I was thinking him in some muddy spikey hole, and I even cut the poles from a piece of wood. And then (!) I said how about a castle, googled it again, and I saw some Jerousalym stone castles and again: 'Hmmm, OK!'...So, again thanx for the correction and the suggestion...I also googled 'Coeur de Lion'! ;-p

    Really appreciated!

    Agree with comments on the toning but I really like the presentation. The use of the battlement as part of the base is nicely done.

    Good representation of 'House of Lanister'; my sons and I are great fans of Game of Thrones.

    Love what you have done with this figure, great choice for surcoat colours with the red and gold/yellow.
