    Good day to all!
    This is my second sculpture of a horseman. This time, the choice fell on Richard the Lionheart, king of England, son of King of England Henry II and Duchess Alienora of Aquitaine.

    One of the most famous crusaders, spent most of his rule outside England in the Crusades and other wars, became famous as an outstanding commander; however, at the same time, in fact, the country in his absence was ruled by his mother and brother John.

    On March 26, 1199, during the siege of Ademar V castle of Limoges алaliu-Chabrolles in Limousin, Richard was wounded in the neck with a crossbow bolt by the French knight Pierre Bazil and died on April 6 from blood poisoning in the arms of his 77-year-old mother Alienora.
    75mm, specially for Medieval Forge Miniatures
    The figure has 3 variants of the head: In a helmet, tophelm, and without a helmet in a chain mail top and with a crown.
    There are also two options for hands and weapons.

    This is magnificent! Congratulations on a wonderful sculpt.

    I'm sure is will look even more spectacular when painted.

    This is superb. I would love to see one of these in 90mm or 120mm. I have the Hart's Models 120mm mounted Richard and would love to produce this in resin, but don't have access to the master.

    Richard must have had a great PR team. As you say he was out of the country for most of his reign, but has maintained a high reputation, possibly because he was followed by his younger brother, a disastrous king.
