    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,

    Very impressive, nice dynamics on the cloth....

    like how you used different materials to make it work for you!
