A Medieval Story or Surprise

Hollidays! Always good but also to short! Mine ended last week, so it's about time I give a sign of life here. The little diorama shown here, I made for the FIGZ 2012 meeting painting competition. I took second place, and was very happy with the result.
The figures I used are all from Valdemar. You will recognize them from previous posts on this blog. The Medieval Highwaymen, the Medieval Guards On Duty and the rider of the Pilgrims set.

Now what's the story behind the story. Since a couple of months I'm a moderator on Benno's Figures Forum, and almost every day there's a fight against "Spammers". As a moderator there you're name is in a green colour. Now you know why the guards and the rider have that green colour uniform. The "Spammers" in this story are the highwaymen. I thought it was a good idea to show this daily battle in a medieval setting.

The trees are all made by myself like I have shown here.

Enjoy it!

This my friends is Andreas, riding his horse and singing
a ballad. It's the ballad of all honest internet users, who
want to show their work or interest to the world.

But what's that showing up in the back?

Ohoh, this looks like a bunch of Spammers who want to cheange the ballad!

Pst! Come here boys, and let us give the guy a surprise!

Quick he's coming near!

What? I can't hear you!

The "Hacker" is here boys!

They are surrounding poor Andreas who is still singing! Isn't he aware of
the danger he's in? But look in the left top corner! What's that?

This looks like some friends of Andreas!
He's got some back up!
But what's going on with them?

The one leaning against that rock is Paul! He's not
feeling well after all the wine he drunk last evening!
Thomas is telling him to move one because Andreas
is allready on the other side of the rock.

Chris, Rich, Remco and Mark are waiting.

Andreas' friends will be a hell of a "Surprise" for those "Spammers"!

This was the story. Not much on it but it's a nice way to present a dio! I hope you like it?

  4. A brilliant story for the dio and great colors as usual of you. Off: I've written a short story about the same topic but it's set in a far future where users of the internet make factions and fight against each other. A medieval setting's great too. Go on warriors of the good cause :)

    1. You know, Paul, that you don't support wine! only beer and whiskey!

    2. Thanks Paul! I know that you like a nice glass of wine. And not like you think Pascal, beer and whiskey! ;-)
      Yes the mistery of the green I've used is not a secret anymore.

  8. Too funny, Peter! What a great story, it all makes sense now!
    But, I don't think Paul is resting from being drunk, he's leaning on the stone because he is LAZY. Great job.

    1. Paul drinks wine?? really?
      I always thought he drunk beer and whiskey!

    2. Oh I didn't mean anything about the drink, I though Peter had finally gotten revenge on Paul for calling him lazy.

    3. Me? Taking revenge? "Big Grin"

      Wine Pascal, I'm sure about that! And Ben, I think he's drunk and lazy! "Bigger Grin"

      Thanks Ben!

  10. This is great Peter and a very fun way of telling a story. The evil spammers were defeated in the end though.

    These were some great shots of the figures too and the terrain building is excellent. I'm going to click on the link for your tree making now as I need to make a tree today.

    1. Strange? I had two e-mails of your post here. I thought you were so excited that you wanted to tell it to me twice! "Grin"

      Yes we defead them every day. Sometimes quick sometimes late, but we get them! I'm pleased that you also like the pictures. Sometimes that is the hardest part for me, I'm always strugling with the angles.

      The tree: I've bought them without the flocking, but they are made from florist wire covered with paper. I tell you this, in case you want them yourself.

      Thanks Anne!
