    Hi everyone,
    I started this beautiful figure from pegaso models. I lost motivation on my 90mm crusader because the kit itself was not the best, so i decided to tackle this one wich is great fun to paint! All in acrylics. Pictures are not the best, as usual

    Off to a good start on this lovely figure. Glad to see that you've left the wings off his helmet. It's a figure that I had in the stash some years ago, sold off and later regretted it.

    When it was released years ago my first thoughts were: i got to have it and i will leave the wings off :)
    Its definitly worth to get this figure again.

    Hi everyone,
    little progress on the viking. I tried to create some different leather tones. Using vallejo paints.

    Leathers look good.

    Belts etc. are always my least favourite part of any paint, and I often struggle with them. But get them wrong and it throws the look of the whole thing.

    Thanks a lot. Yes, you are right, belts etc. are not the most funny part to paint on a figure, but i am quite happy with these ones.

    Hi Stephen

    Nice looking figure your working on , , looks a nicely detailed kit as well ....agree ref the wings ...good choice

    Your certainly cracking on with this , I might suggest to put another wash on the helmet ..but thats just my preference , the mail is looking good on him

    Look forward to seeing more on this and perhaps the return of the Crusader

    Happy benchtime

    Hello everyone,
    slowly getting forward with the viking. I am struggling a bit if the colours i have chosen for the shirt and the trousers match together. All comments are welcome.

    Great work. I too think it was right to leave the wings off.
    Without in any way being disparaging about the paint work , which I could never hope to match, I would repeat here, purely for info what I said on a separate thread about the painting of jacks and gambesons.
    I quote

    “A great figure from MFM and great painting by Sven. I can only dream of ever painting to this standard.
    A word about representing jacks. I seem to remember a fellow member, who if memory serves me correctly was also a re-enactor pointed out that contrary to what you might expect the seams on a jack remain clean while the actual padded pockets get dirty. I suppose when you think about it it is the actual padded pockets that rub against equipment, armour etc and take general wear and tear, while the seams remain protected. The attached photos give a good idea of this effect. When I read those earlier comments I had to admit to myself that I had been painting jacks incorrectly and had to change my approach on subsequent models. I shall certainly bear this in mind as I paint my War of the Roses man at arms (see separate WIP).
    Please….this is not meant as any criticism of the way Sven paints but just goes to highlight (I know…dreadful pun!) a common misconception.”

    Thanks a lot, thats interesting. I will keep that in mind for future projects.
  15. nig-g Active Member

    I hope you found my comments useful. When I saw the original article I realised that I’ve not been painting jacks etc correctly and I’m having to revise what I doing on my WOR mans at arms currently on my bench. It’s really counterintuitive !

    Hello everyone,
