INBOX069 - Knight of Outremer, 1300 (FeR COC00001)

Today I'll show you a historical figure in 75mm scale from FeR Miniatures. I have it from two years. Now I was able to finish the painting. Really difficult but very nice model. I invite you to a short review.

Dzisiaj zaprezentuję Wam historyczną figurkę w skali 75mm od FeR Miniatures. Posiadam ją od dwóch lat. Dopiero teraz udało mi się ukończyć jej malowanie. Naprawdę trudny ale bardzo ładny model. Zapraszam, do krótkiej recenzji.





Information about kit:
Sculpture: Oriol Quin
Painting: Fernando Ruiz
Material: Resin
Number of parts of the kit: 14
Scale: 75 mm


Historical background (from http://ferminiatures.com):

The initial push of the Crusades devastated the Holy Land, expelled the Muslim powers and created diverse Christian kingdoms in the Middle East. Situation in those kingdoms was barely stable and they needed a continuous flow of warriors from Europe to guarantee their survival in front of the Arab armies’ pressure that were fighting to conquer back those territories.

At first, faith had been the main incentive for these warriors, fervent devotes that didn’t hesitate to travel across half world to fight for their beliefs. But later, lot of members excluded from the European societies went there for the promise of a future that offered incredible opportunities to those who dare to grab them.

Our knight could be one of those persons, either one of those that fought for noble principles or one of those moved for more material desires. His garment is typical from early XIV century and shows the transition from protections based primarily on chainmail (omnipresent on the battlefield since several hundred years) towards a combination of chainmail, hardened leather, metallic plates or even gambesons with multiple layers of cloth. Helmets were already evolving to much more sophisticated models than the earlier ones. Heraldry was entering in its golden age and surcoats and shields were the perfect places to display it. A miniature that offers countless options of decoration for any painter.






Miniature a is packed in a plastic box. On the box we find the boxart, painted by Fernando Ruiz.

The figurine was sculpted using traditional methods, without the use of a computer and 3D printing. You can feel a human hand in this model.
