    ...and the body armor, a muscle cuirass. Common armor from centuries, still in use at that era mostly from aristocratic men who can afford that cost.

    Marc thanks,
    George thank you for your kind words and info, I know exactly what I will paint, I have made my recearch, you know I love this historical period many many years now.

    The miniature is on the final steps, there are some few details to add before I start to paint it.

    Here is a photo from the neck's chain mail. I make it very thin, I "stick" it on a hard surface using vaseline and I engrave the "c"s for the chain mail.

    ...the chain mail that covers the neck. I like the result, it's the first time for me using this technique but it works. It's time now to put the stirrups, a mace, a sword, some arrows, the shield needs some improvement and finally the figure is going to complete (I am getting tired). Soon the last photos. (y)

    Great project Christos!

    I think the textile on the horse need more wrinkless (I know, it's not so easy), but the whole composition is excellent!

    Congrats!
