Hi my friends.
Passed again lots of time I couldn't participate to forums. Hobby is going slow, too
I could finish my latest project with which I also enlisted to the Crusades campaign.

The figures are coming from Pegaso, Romeo and M-Models (the mounted one). All painted with acrylics.

Looks very good Alguhan. They go well together. I like the vignette as you´ve laid them out , but it would be a good idea for them to all face the same direction, in my opinion.

Very nice vignette Alguhan!
Figures are perfectly painted and you've balanced whole scene perfectly.
Really nice one!

BTW: you've made 4 perfect figures and in the same time I've managed to finish only one... and you are telling that the hobby is going slow?

I congratulate you on some wonderfull painting , each figure is well painted , but for me the figure on the right dosn't fit in , all the others have some sort of movement to then and complement each other where as the the figure with his hand to his chin looks as if he is there just to fill the base .
I know we all spend many hours painting a putting this little kits together so I hope you will not take this as magor criticisam but when incorperating figures into a diorama somehow we have to show how they all interact with the scene .

Gordon, these three on the left are just cheering, you know, like: yeah! we won! yeah!, but the guy on the right is the only one who thinks: ok, but who is going to clean this f#cking mess?

Thanks for your comments and critics my friends.
Here are the answers to your questions:

@julien: The eyes are difficult to paint always under the helmet. But they also are are less visible and can hide some mistakes

@andrzej: I still think I was slow with the hobby in this year my friend. But this is just because I want to paint much more figures than I can

@gordon: I agree with your idea. I received the same comment on community forums from other modellers. My very convincing answer is this: the vignette has been built for a collectioner who have came with the figures and wanted them all in the same scene. I personally would like to present the thinker of "how to clean this mess" alone (BTW andrzej nice remark ) That's why I tried to put him somehow on the back ground. Anyway, the collectioner is happy with his new vignette and I am happy, too
