VA127 Medieval Guards on Duty

This is another great set from Valdemar. These figures supposed to be on guard in a castle. Well I'm going to use them in an other way. But more about that in another post.

In the review on Plastic Soldier Review the figures are in resin, as you can see here, but the ones I've painted are made from metal. I must confess that I rather paint plastic figures, but in this case I made an exception. I just had some trouble with the spears. I didn't get them all straight. The painting went well and they are very good sculpted. The rating on PSR, with all 10's is well deserved.

Enjoy the pictures!















I hope you like them!

    1. Thanks! I did nothing special on the faces. Just some flesh paint and covered it with flash wash.

  11. Hi Peter,

    Take two large popsicle sticks and gently bind the spear pole together and roll it back and forth with your fingers. This way the spears will straighten out.

    You did a great job on the paint my friend. Not much a fan of the lime green, but the craftsmanship is well present it.

    Warm regards,

    Ben

    1. Thanks for the tip Ben. I keep it in mind!

      The lime green is for a reason I can't tell at this moment. You'll have to be patient. ;-)

  12. After seeing Valdemar figs on Pauls site, I can see the quality of the sculpts. You've done a fine job with them and I like the lime green. I always enjoy your use of color!!

  15. Nice set and well painted..pity about the spears. ...I have never managed to get one of the soft metal spears exactly straight and it stay straight..I throw them away and replace them with plastic or home made ones.
    PSR..they reviewed the last three sets from valdemar as plastic..I know there are only 4 sets existing in plastic/resin..all the rest are in metal ;-D
    Cheers
