W.I.P. Knights Resting (VALDEMAR) and "Castle Ruins" (PAPERMAU)

Some quick shots of 2 works, almost finished but not completely !.....
The Knights: 
they could be seen like Templars Knights!
they come from the set: Valdemar "Mounted Knights Resting (FREDERICUS-REX)
I've used one figure of this set for "After The Battle"  , 
and there is another one I didn't used yet.
The problem with this set is the number of horses poses: only 3 for 7 different knights! it's not enough!
then, I've chosen 5 knights and the 3 horses poses for a project that I would like to call: 
" Where's my horse ????!!!!!!"

I've  put them on the first part of the "Castle Ruins" from Mauther (Papermau):
a very nice Paper-card model! (but not finished yet....!)
(it's also a good way to see the scale of the Castle: it seems to be good for 1/72 !)

 Quelques photos rapides de 2 travaux, presque terminés, mais pas completement !! ...
 
Les Chevaliers pourraient être vus comme des Templiers! 
ils viennent du set:
 Valdemar "Mounted Knights Resting (FREDERICUS-REX)
J'ai utilisé une figurine de ce set pour 
"After The Battle"  ,  
et il y en a une autre que je n'ai pas encore utilisée. 
Le problème avec ce set est le nombre de poses pour les chevaux : seulement 3 pour 7 chevaliers différents!  ça ne suffit pas!

J'ai
donc choisi 5 chevaliers et les 3 poses de chevaux  pour un projet que je voudrais appeler:
«Où est mon cheval???!!"

Je les ai posés sur la première partie de
"Castle Ruins" from Mauther (Papermau):   un très beau modèle en papier ! (mais que je n'ai pas encore fini ....!)
(c'est aussi une bonne façon de voir l'échelle du château: il semble être bon pour le 1/72!)

    1. .... but your castle is very good!
      (in mine, the white lines are not beautiful: I will paint them a little, like I did on the back wall!)

    1. ouais c'est bluffant! surtout en photo!
      tu as vu le blog de Mauther, je crois, et les modèles (les siens ou d'autres) sont fantastiques, parfois avec des résultats aussi bons que des modèles en plastique!)

  13. Great combination of papercraft and plastic figures. There is something of an outdoor stage. Maybe they play a part of Shakespeare?
    Fine painted figures and a great advance in painting the white! Keep on your good work. It's always a pleasure for me to see the pictures of your work.

    1. thanks Bruno!
      You're the first talking of the white!
      I was looking at the previous post and this one:
      for the STRELETS Templars, the pictures are not good enough: too much light and the shading is not visible!
      for the Valdemar (in metal!), the sculpt is different, better and the shading is easier, in fact!
      I must say that I'm quite satisfied with those ones!
