Valdemar Set 124 Pilgrims Part 1

I call it Part 1 because it's just one figure and horse from the complete set, as can be seen here. I had the luck that I could buy this set in resin, wich I like more as metal figures. It painted up very well and I really like the look of this figure.

I had a discussion with my wife about this figure. Is it a knight playing the mandoline, or is it just a troubadour? He has chainmail so I go for the knight. Oh yes, the discussion started when I was making my little dio for the FIGZ 2012 painting competition.

Enough talking, pictures now!







I hope you like him!

  1. What a delightful miniature and beautifully painted. Given the huge sword I would have to say knight also.

    Troubadours were also knights..some even being lords, the Duke of Aquitaine for example ;-D He´s a knight who is a troubadour :-D

  7. Peter, I was lucky to see this masterpiece in real on FIGZ and must say I was impressed!
    The Valdemar figure is awesome, but the vignette turned out perfect.
    So my compliments on this one, well done!

  10. Nice work mate, the green is a bit bright though but there is no accounting for medieval taste!!!

  11. Definitely a knight with all that chainmail or a troubadour who is terrible and needs the protection from music lovers! Lovely work....
