    St.John Red Hospitaller :)

    Post  Ray on Tue Mar 19, 2013 1:22 pm

    As I am seriously contemplating of this caption when ready "My Order, My Knights" or vice versa or something within that line & obviously referring to St.John himself wearing the uniform of his Order, I baptise this thread St.John Red Hospitaller cheers

    Just a quick update since I can't take pios as yet Embarassed

    This will be as he was in the other thread, with the same face & more or less the same hair style since everything came off as I needed a more significant conversion to this one with slung sheild over his back, so I had to rework all the mail coif & reposition sheild slings over his right shoulder & under his left arm Twisted Evil

    Finishing the last few strands of hair Suspect & also fabricating a Saracen sword Suspect since St.John will be sporting the double handed bastard sword over his right shoulder cheers

    He will also be standing over a green Saracen banner (Ivan please note I bit your bait Twisted Evil ) with the Saracen sword lying on it Laughing

    Viva San Giovanni!

    Nice idea of the patron! A bit too militant for the prophet but not a common thing to see him displayed for sure ... you had to do him red hux ... the Order is ours aswell [better translated in Maltese Smile ... issa ifihma kif trid LOL]

    Well, having the NOD from you is a BLESSING Ivan cheers since this is shattering the borders of Historicity to enter the Realm of Imagination pale

    Yes that is a good one Laughing "L-Ordni Taghna Lkoll" Laughing

    Do you think it should be "My Order, My Knights" or "My Knights, My Order"?

    The Saracen Sword in progress so far Twisted Evil just to post some pics & start breathing some life into this thread cheers

    It is fabricated from a piece of 3mm copper rod, hammered flat & filed & shaped accordingly. The guard is a mix of MS & Duro and filed & shaped when putty was dry.
    The lion's head pommel is the same mix of MS & Duro stuffed into a Siligum Paste mould on the nose guard of the Saracen helmet which I made originally & which will accompany the other half of my dual build project, the Helmeted Black Hospitaller Twisted Evil

    I would go My Order first, as they first made a hospitaller order to help pilgrims then they became warrior monks ... nice sword !
