28mm The Assault Group – Vlad The Impaler

Vlad The Impaler

Ok another one.. my client sent me these nice figures as part of the bit Ottoman order.. they aren’t Ottoman, but some how related.. if you read a bit of history about Vlad the Impaler (Vlad Drakul, Bride and Boyar – REN360). I added here another of the gift figures TAG has for the Renaissance range. Is the second time i paint that priest, the other one he was all black, so i decided to paint clear sleeves. The another figure in question, (not the girl, which obviously is Vlad’s wife) is an Hungarian Boyar. A nice figure, i was in the temptation to use decals, but i gone with the brush. The term “Boyar” was commonly used in Bulgarian, Kievan, Moscovian, Serbian.. and so. It refer to highest Feudal rank.
Wife’s dress decoration is also by hand, nothing special.

I could not avoid putting them together like in a wedding 🙂

These figures, except priest, are quite big for the TAG standard in Renaissance range.

I declare you husband and wife until a impalement separates you
