    An almost completed figurine of southern-France crusader on his way in steppes of Asia Minor? srarving of heat and thirsty. It's summer 1097. It's still very long way to Jerusalem...
    Ya! It sounds as a good name for this work: "A long way to Jerusalem"

    Vlad -

    Very well done. It's nice to see some different poses on figures other than the heroic ones we most often see. I look forward to seeing this painted up.

    If you consider offering this figure to the public, pls PM or email me. I am interested.

    Thanks!

    Why isn't there a figure like this available commercialy? I like the subject, LOVE the attitude and would pay quit some cash just to be able to pay this. Please cast it and sell it. It's perfect.

    Gino-

    I agree completely.

    Now if this could be converted to a 1/35 SS German in pea pattern it would be released very quickly!

    Thanks guys for your kindly words. As to me I start to beleive that this wok is the best of mine for now. I'll try to go forward and to do something better. As a sculptor i think that is the right way - to show attitude and to make a miniature expressive and emotional and only then to concentrate on uniform and details.

    Andy, Alex

    The scale is 54 mm according to standart measurement. So the length of mounted figure is 81-82 mm.

    To everyone who want to see it painted:
    Guys, I'm a sculptor only. I knew nothing about how to mix colours. And I feel a great sorrow and shame about it. Of course I will try, but don't expect it too soon.

    Gino, Costas, Keith - everyone who who want to see it as an commercial release item:
    to release this item by myself - is a very big problem now. Usually I make one or two castings of my works by drop-casting for myself. But quality of such castings is far from to be good in comparison to spin-casting. And I knew nobody here in Israel who deals with spin-casting.
    At the same time I'll be glad if somebody could release this model. If anyone have any ideas about it - welcome to discuss it here or in PM.

    Thanks again to everyone

    Dr Lutz,

    I have to echo all the comments. I really like the weary look to both rider and horse. I too would love to see this one painted. If you yourself do not paint I am sure you could list it on Kibay and there may be several PF members who may love to pick it up and paint it. ;)

    Joe
