Title: Purist Middle Ages
Post by: specialist on October 18, 2015, 02:01:58
So far you could see my medieval creations at the Gardenwargaming-forum. Right now I started a new subtheme and I want to show those figures here. The approach is purist as I use only original parts and stickers and absolutely no (original) printing. I want to create a look similar to the Klickys of my childhood withour too much detail but using all the colors and parts that are around today.

Nice job those klickies do look good simple but, colourful and good use of parts. Like the man with the goose (poor goose) well posed though

Great idea and lovely figures! Thanks for sharing them here.
Those stickers are amazingly good condition- are they originals too, or do you sometimes print new ones?

The second three sets are superb, too.  I especially like the figure in the middle of the first of that, he looks like a  rich merchant who trades with Muscovy.

@GrahamB: original stickers from my childhood. Must have been very careful....in fact I played with my pirates most of the time.

More great combinations! Having the right parts (hats, jackets, shoulder pieces, etc) and a great eye makes for some fantastic creations. The short red jacket with red puffy sleeves in that last picture would not look out of place in a modern klicky too!

Just found my replay gone astray- mein Kommentar hatte sich verlaufen... :-[:


Klasse. Du stellst drei Figuren hin, und der Kopf weiß, welche Szene er drumherumdenken darf. Ganz großes Kino.  :)

Just brillant - three Klickys and my phantasy knows which scene Tod add.

Title: Re: Purist Middle Ages
Post by: Birdie on October 27, 2015, 08:21:45
What I specifically love about your customs is the fact that they are brightly coloured but they don't have printing (on half of their bodies) etc. The colours go great together too.

If only PM was really like this....these are far superior to many current sets.

Agreed!

What a great series, especially for those of us here in the states who do not have access to all of the older pieces in Europe.  My favorites are the peasants, especially the farmer with the very unhappy duck.

btw Ralf, I never knew there was a beige 'judoka' belt(on the blue shirt I mentioned), which ancient set did he come from?

The prehistorical special, I think..

if I remember correctly, the box art of that special somehow showed a belt which was more 'frayed' which is correct for prehistoric period

I don't think so. The more "frayed" belts are a lot more recent, I think. Maybe with the stone age?

I just found this awesome thread. I am almost in tears... imagining myself nearly 40 years ago, playing in my parents' house, setting up a medieval village in my bedroom... Unbelievable! Your work is brilliant. And it's all there, Playmobil could look like this even today! If these were on sale, I'd take them all, each set two or three times!

The Goose's Goose is cooked! Somehow the picture of the fat bloke with a knife in one hand and a goose in the other is slightly unsettling - but probably because it's so casually life like!  Good work 8-)
