    AGREED.........however the water ripples around the heads are not present in the actual photo, so IMHO they are representing a non existent movement beneath the water, which given the "tight formation" of the bodies/heads surely cannot be "strokes" Laughing

    Except for the xaghra fl-ghagina, they are brilliant but i must agree with Mr. Gold. All that movement about the heads is a bit unnatural.

    Another nice vignette of a Crusader, from the Valdemar miniatures range in 1:72. Just finished by a French small-scale painter.

    Cool idea, that is the proper attire of a knight on march, with a mare with all his equipment, a squire might have also been included ...

    .......and even his mistress! However considering the tight formation of the horses I think it's brilliant! Wink

    A nice subject IMHO called The Oregon trail found on forum dedicated to 1:72 scale. The painting could be improved as always in my view but I like the setting...

    Small scale dioramas from Benno's figures forum for 1:72 and smaller

    Post  RayCaruana on Wed Jun 16, 2010 11:20 pm

    These are three outstanding works IMO, featured on Benno's figure forum in 1:72...
