Horses conversions, Mithril, and more.....

I've posted here some trails of horses conversions :
I've partially painted them:

I'd tried to do better ones, and I think that the result is a little better
(sorry for the bad pictures: the black gives some gloss ...)

....and like I was curious to see some figures of LOTR Mithril (28mm), I bought this ones:
A Hobbit scout on poney and Radagast:
not the best figures I'd ever seen but they have something nice!

....and more??

yes, I will share with you the music I like!
I begin with my preferred song: 
Neil Young (the great!) 
"The Needle and the Damage Done"

that's all, mates!

(WIP) Pilgrims moving towards the Holyland-STRELETS-

I used for this work a selection of figures from STRELETS and LINEAR-b :
I know that it could seems surprising to use those sets for a Medieval project, but they were the only ones I found for doing a small range of civilians pilgrims moving towards the Holyland ! 
(and I like to paint Strelets figures!)
It's not a finished work...
more to see ..... soon!


J'ai utilisé pour ce travail une sélection de figurines de chez STRELETS et LINEAR-b:
"Roman Transport (1)» et "Roman Transport (2)"

Je sais que cela peut sembler surprenant d'utiliser ces sets pour un projet médiéval, mais ils étaient les seuls que j'ai trouvé pour faire une petite gamme de pèlerins en marche vers la Terre Sainte! 
(et j'aime peindre des figurines Strelets!)

Ce n'est pas un travail fini ...
plus à voir ..... bientôt!

...... not really good ones, but it's a trail !
I need a small range of Strelets Order Knights and the problem is that the horses of the original sets don't have blankets!
So I decided to add some ones with paper-handkerchiefs and wood glue (diluted)
(honesty, in my opinion it's not good, so I'll try to do some more for improving the technique!)

here are the results:

I tried also to do something I've never done: change a head of a horse!!
The figure I used is this one (STRELETS "Army of Henry V ")
with the head of a generic Strelets horse:

 I'll use too some others horses from different STRELETS sets...
 More to see soon (I hope!)
Click on a picture to see larger ones!

quick shots of the set: "Apache Warriors" Waterloo 1815....
I don't comment the figures: I've done it in previous messages!(see here)
I'm sorry but the pictures are bad: I don't took them in daylight!!!
(maybe, I'll re-do better ones as soon as possible!)

Normans (STRELETS) another duel...

I post it to show my first duel on Benno's ("Knights on horse duel"): 
I've won but honesty, I'm not sure that my work was better than my duellist's one! 
(Sasha/Zed1 : Zed's Napoleonics)

Since this duel I did some new pictures in daylight:
