    Hi, this is my 2nd version of this amazing figura.
    I really think that this is one of better medieval knight produced by Pegaso...
    Painted in acrilic with Andrea e VAlleyo colors... Oil and printer's ink for the metal part.
    I hope that you like, thanks in advance for view and comments :)

    Best regards from Italy
    Andrea

    Andrea this is one of my all time favorites figures and you did a fanastic job painting it. The shield really works! My complments.
  3. Hi Andrea

    Very good paintwork but as this period and Order is very dear to me, specially as I am Maltese I have to tell you that you have a wrong title to the magnificent work you have done. Raymond was a Hospitaller GM, the first that took arms, so the period rapresented here is some good no. of decades after his dead and second Hospitallers always wore black habits with white cross during the early crusades [only to change to red with white cross later on ] but never wore white and no knight ever showed his family heraldry on his shield apart on the seals of the Grandmasters which was quartered with the Hospitaller cross ... I think a small fix to the name will do the job ;)

    Excuse me again to be a critic but I feel I have to point out ...

    Saluti da Malta la isola dei Cavalieri di San Giovanni!

    thanks Pete,Mao,jimas and Ivan for your comments.

    Hi Ivan, you are right.
    thanks for your comment and please, don't excuse for your critic ...I really think that all critics serve for improving me for painting my figures :)
    I have painted Raymond with mantle of Order of St.LAzarus.
    I have found many discordant news to the early knights of this Order and other discordant notices to heraldry use.
    Raimondo il du Puy (1157-1159)
    He followed Gerard de Martigues as head of the Order of Saint John of Jerusalem. He allegedly contracted leprosy and became Master of Saint Lazarus
    I have found this notice here:
    www.st-lazarus.net
    search: symbolism/heraldry

    best regards from Italy :)

    Ciao Andrea,

    Like Ivan I would like to compliment you for the painting and like Ivan, I would have told you basically what he told you vis a vis Raymond du Puy, since also I made this figure myself, where you can find him in my VBench here amongst other fora.......

    However from your added information to which I am completely in the drak, so i will let Ivan chime in as I'm sure he's looking deep in his sources :D

    Again you did an outstanding paintjob!!!!!!! Bravo!!!!!!!

    Tanti saluti da Malta.

    Ray ;)
  12. Ciao Andrea

    That is also news to me, have to check better refrances as you have correctly stated early crusades are a mix of historical facts and very 'dark', infact also dressware they look more Normaish [Frank] then the stereo type knights we associate with. Regarding Order of St Lazarus it was a lesser one and accepted knights that were hit by leprasy, probably they were used as the first biological warefare army as it is very strange to be to see these patients, probably many you do not dare to look in the face go to pick a fight ... but they did it, how staunch their beleives were for sure!

    So just as it might confus anyone reading the posts, the main orders during the crusades in the holyland were the Templars [white with red cross], the Teutonics [white with black cross] and the Hospitallers/St John [black with white cross and after 12c red with white cross for knights only]. There are many lesser orders many coming out from the main ... but these are the foundation oif the main MilesChristi + also from Spain the Order of Santiago.

    Again compliment on your work and gallery ... nice to discuss new ideas!
