    Wow Ray, those figures are absolutely brilliant. What a lot of new sets are being issued, really interesting.

    I like them most because they depict the everyday medieval life, not the mainstream knights at war or men at arms.

    No I haven't stopped working on the inquisition, in fact it's primed and ready for painting, hopefully will start painting the walls this week. I'm also trying to scratch-build a couple of tall candle holders out of wire and leadfoi scratch scratch

    A new set from Valdemar miniatures is out

    Post  RayCaruana on Sun Mar 06, 2011 5:36 pm

    I want this set!! It is so masterly sculpted I love you But I will wait for the metal version this time because some parts are too fragile in resin.

    Ray I think it is time to start enlarging your mini dios into 'big' dios, these figures cry out to recreate medeival everyday life, you can easily recreate a Borgo or Mdina scene from the 13/14c ... come on it's Mlata's darkest period so lets put some light into it!

    Ivan I wouldn't mind at all extending small dios to big scenes of Malta's medieval period. But I don't have enough free time Sad Mad Sad No Mind you, if one cuts some corners with the painting, one would produce more work, but how and where can an SSM member cut corners scratch ?

    The high heels issue was already raised in another forum and the sculptor said that they will not be there in the actual models. Yes I totally agree about the sandals tongue
