Yet another figurine by Pegaso Models, althought this piece was never officially sold in the retail market, since it was given as a gift along with the subscription of the french magazine "Figurines" (no more published). The scene is not scratch built, but I don't remember the manufacturer... I also loved to paint the heraldry on the shield and the vest.
Miniature – 54mm scale
I am back, after a 2 years break due to other priorities. Hopefully I will be able to paint more regularly... So, this is an old figurine by Pegaso Models named "Templar Knight", 54mm scale. This is also the first time I am using a mixed acrylic-oil technique which I dedided to start adopting. Oil colors are really great to paint nice shades and colors look more natural, at least to me...
"The Defeat" is a representation of a scene where a Polish Knight takes possession of the flag of an unhorsed Teutonic knight in the context of the "Battle of Tannenberg" (1410) also known as "Battle of Grunwald" (https://it.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battaglia_di_Grunwald). This is my first "mini diorama" where I had to fit two figures. I painted the metal parts by polishing the white metal of the miniatures and painting them with oil colours. The flag is scratch build out of a think sheet of white metal. [ngg src="galleries" ids="14" display="pro_blog_gallery" border_color="#dd9933"]
This is another "tutorial figurine" I decide to paint to make practice. This miniature is part of the Metal Modeles introductory package available here http://www.metal-modeles.com/en/metal-models-soldiers-of-lead/coffret-initiation-a-la-figurine/coffret-initiation-a-la-figurine-detail This package is quite nice as it includes some tools to clean up the model parts as well as the colours and paint brushes to paint the figurine. I am not very happy with the final results, but the way to learn is quite long... [ngg src="galleries" ids="23" display="pro_mosaic"]
This is my very first figurine! This is not a famous one as it was manufactured by a now dead Spanish company name Ttfxmedia. The reason I started with this model is that the kit was accompanied with a CDROM with the painting process videos and some explanations. This figurine is also one of the very first kits I bought, several years ago. [ngg src="galleries" ids="6" display="pro_mosaic"]
