My hopeless meandering through the wargames world has currently stopped in the twelfth century then, as I decided to have a bash at converting a figure to make Herne , the woodland God of Sherwood, and spiritual guide of Robin, played by the late John Abineri,
I decided to do 2 poses, one giving The Blessing and one more static. The robes are tissue paper and linen. I haven't decided how to paint these chaps yet...they are asking for a detailed paintjob, but my original plan was to block paint my medievals like my ECW figures...
I too greatly enjoyed the series...
Interesting figures,I look forward to seeing them completed.ReplyDelete
Those look great! Some of my earliest TV-related memories are of watching 'Robin of Sherwood'.ReplyDelete
Kudos on having a mullet, by the way!
nice conversion workReplyDelete
First rate renditions of Herne - well done!! Tell me, is Herne Hill in Londinium a reference to the god, or is that something else? And if so, where is the poor fellow now? As for the Hooded Man, sadly, I've never seen the series, and only remember Clannad's theme.ReplyDelete
If you want to read more of Herne, the Victorian author William Harrison Ainsworth wrote a novel about Henry VIII, called 'Windsor Castle;, where Herne was one of the central figures. A model of the Wild Hunt would be amazing.ReplyDelete
Thanks Chaps. Joppy, the novel sounds very interesting, and a study of the way Herne supplanted Woden as leader of the Wild Hunt in English mythology would be well worth undertaking. Alfront, I'm not sure about Herne Hill or Hene bay for that matter, but I can only assume they are related. The theme track for the series is probably my most listened to CD in my collection.ReplyDelete
Great work. I did a Herne Figure out of clay a few years ago which stood about 10" tall. I'm a huge fan of Robin Of Sherwood myself. Great work on the Herne figures. I cannot wait to see them completed.ReplyDelete
