    This figure is on my workbench since Christmas 2011. I declare it finished.
    It is a Seil figure (75 mm)that I bought when it came out maybe 5 years ago. It was a challenge that time to paint a knight in black and white with a red cross. Over the years i considerd that painting black and white is a very hard task. When reading some old HMM I saw Vlademar painted by Mike Blank and find the colors great. Just what i needed to pickup the old kit from the grey army and painted like Vlademar. Hope you like it, comments are welcome.

    I live very much the heraldry you've chosen. the diagonal bars following the same direction as the cape gives a dynamic looking to the all the scene

    Nice dynamics. Has a sense of movement and with the wind blowing from behind looks great. Great painting. The heraldry is free hand?

    Really great looking result Marc. Must be extremely gratifying to move him off the shelf of shame finally.

    Great colors and the heraldry is most impressive. Very nice indeed. (y)

    Thanks guys. Apreciate it very much.

    The blue and whitestripes are painted freehand. The lions are painted (outside) with the stencils from Tommi Warton. The details on the lions must be painted further freehanded.
