    Some time ago I discovered a series of comic books called " CRUSADES ".A new series of pencil drawn tales of the great crusades during the middle ages .
    The authors used a mixture of history, fantasy and adventure to create a new world in witch the main characters are living .
    The cover of one of the albums cought my attention and I used it as an example to create a new figure .
    As always I used a mixture of milliput and green stuff for sculpting .
    The arms are made from copper rod .
    A lot of work got into the jewels. I used about everithing I could fiind .
    Some are made of plastic tape ( the B . Horan way ) , metal foil , magic sculpt , etc ..
    In the pictures I took , the knife ( oriental style ) the figure is wearing is made seperately and has to be fixed after painting .
    The base is made from milliput and some natural rocks .

    If you want to know more about these albums , check out the authors web site at :

    you can the original drawings etc ..

    That is a great sculpt !

    The comic series Croisade is good, Pegaso also uses the illustrations as inspiration for some of their best figures : for example this hospitaller knight, one of their best 90mm figs, is based on an illustration from these comic books (don't know if you noticed ?): http://www.pegasomodels.com/productdetails_en.asp?id=747

    Superb, Marc!

    I trust that something this unique will go to a private collector instead of being commercially available?

    Marc this is very nice and i really like the large flag/banner and the way you have draped it, very nicely done.
    Fantasy female crusaders is a subject i have just recently been working on and it really gives you full freedom of what you do around a great subject, that of the Crusades.
    I look forward to seeing the painted version.

    As Mike already said, simple awesome. Oh my gosh. How can such a blood
    thirsty female have a face that looks like "the girl next store" . . .

    Incredible. So creative and artistic. Wow, what fun this figure would be to
    paint. For one thing, since it is fantasy, obviously, you could pick any range
    of colours that you like. . . . i.e. her face could be aqua, or violet or what
    everrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr. Whoa, Nellie,
