Looks good, but more monks? I understand why (since you already started with a monk), but we have monks from Valdemar, Kamar, Germania, Pegasus and even Airfix. Well, they do look good and seem to fit best with Pegasus. Maybe the next Medievals will be something else. Maybe women and children? I know that Valdemar, Nikolai, GreenLine, Italeri and others have made women, but there are not that many. And children are even more rare (I know only of Valdemar, but we can probably sneak in Kamar's viking children).

This set was sponsored by a customer who generously allowed us to sell it in the shop, so it's the customer choice. I agree there are already a lot of monk sets, but when you see the coming poses you will see that they are very useful, and you're able to choose between hooded and without hood, small thing maybe but it gives dioramists some more variety. Medieval women and children are good ideas.

Hi ! I love your monks ! :yeah:
Are they on your shop ? or maybe later ?

And do you project to do some others ... like :
-monk in a scriptorium ?
-monk working in a garden ?
....
(I was thinking too at this excellent BBC serie : "Cadfael which could be a great source of inspiration)

Like Gunnar said, they are a lot of monks in our scale but I think that the subject is not completely covered .

They will be released when they are all done, including monks working in the garden so keep an eye on this thread. We have already a monk in the scriptorium https://www.speira.net/product/scriptorium-set/

And yes, can't have enough monks in this hobby, especially a monk choir!

:oops: I've seen before the monk in a scriptorium ... I've forget it !

And yes a monk choir is a good idea ! :yeah:

I've not buy some of your figures yet because I didn't paint a lot but I think I will wait the monks for an order...

And then, I hope so much to see some Native Americans (aka "Indians" ! :P ) very soon !
(hope is life ! or life is hope ? :eh: )

Many thanks !

No he's working in the garden, but could be holding a lantern or perhaps reaching for a book in the library.

Ah, I though he was directing the choir! I guess his pose is too energetic for that since choir directors then were probably quite solemn. Nice designs, as always :yeah:
