    This is my interpretation of the Crecy Models kit of Louis de Burbon painted in the heraldry of Louis II Duke of Flanders
    I used Tommi's stencils for the heraldry,very useful for keeping the lions all the same size.
    Your comments are welcome.

    Excellent painting. Tommi's stencils sure make it easier to keep the heraldy the same size.

    I like what you have done with this kit. The yellow definately makes it stand out. Nice work.

    Very nice overall effect Peter, you have done well with the yellow, it is a very difficult colour to work with, glad the stencils were of some use, looking foward to seeing more of your work posted here.
    Cheers

    Thanks for the kind words guys much appreciated.
    I really enjoyed making this figure, the crecy models kit is not an easy one to build but looks good when finished I would certainly recommend it, also their kits are a fair bit cheaper than pegaso.
    I saw a banner showing the heraldry on a recent trip to Bruges and decided it would look good on this figure but I don't think I woud have attempted 7 lions without the stencil

    a beautifully painted figure, on some excellent groundwork !!
    I presume you wanted to represent Louis, Count of Flanders, who was one of the leading French knights at the battle of Crécy in 1346 (he was killed there btw). It's quite possible you saw his heraldry on a banner during a trip to Bruges - his beautiful coat of arms is still the flag of Flanders today ! :)

    What a nice figure you just did!!! Love it. I must confess that the stencil are really helping. I have used them myself.

    Thanks for sharing your work. Very well done.

    Regards,

    Thankyou Clarence and Johan for your comments
    Johan the figure depicted on the box art of the Crecy Models kit is that of Louis De Bourbon at Agincourt some 69years later than the battle of Crecy and the figure is weaing armour of a later style than that worn at Crecy
    Unfotunately there was no Duke of Flanders at Agincourt Itherefore decided to paint the figure as the Louis the second of Flanders [the son of the one killed at Crecy] who himself was killed at St Omer in 1384

    Good day.

    Your painting is good.

    Your remarks are most relevant. Louis I is known as Louis de Nevers (Pegaso fans know him). The first 'Agincourt style' armours were made in the late 1380s; hence your figure is historically accurate.
