Wonderful medieval figures  :love:

I love the pictures where the knight allows himself to rest with a glass of wine  :**:

Marla's shield would look great in any (semi)fantasy setting, that livery is stunning.

The Swan tournament knight is a great purchase!

Per pale or and gules, two lions rampant addorsed in chief a crown, counterchanged.

Nah, I had help. My heraldry is a bit rusty.

Even then, that sounds pretty impressive!

I noticed Playmobil used "real" heraldry here. Or is gold & gold is a metal, not a color. Gules is red, which is a color. Metal must never be on top of metal, & color must never be on top of color. Both the rampant lions & the crown are designed correctly, & the countercharge between the red & gold follows heraldic rules. Well done, Playmobil!
