Working now on some Czech peasants - doing a project in 1/72 makes it a lot easier when it comes to making civilian minis  - there is such an abundance of them. Still need to sculpt some historically accurate clothes on them.

I've finally finished my kabbalist warband :)

They are all based on contemporary sketches of the Jews from Prague by Roelandt Savery ca. 1606. The one next to the Golem is based on a sketch, which according to historians depicts the great Maharal - rabbi Loewe the chief rabbi of the bohemian crown, and according to the legend - creator of the Golem.

This is wonderful. The conversion really feels special, and the research you did is just icing on the cake.
Can't wait to see more of your work.

Great sculpt.  Will that be a cudgel in his upraised right hand ?

Thank you :).

I've based this conversion on an image of bohemian peasant from ca. 1620 map



His right hand will hold the so called "nasiekaniec", which is a cudgel sort of made of a young oak spiked with flint shards.

Oh and my Jewish warband is based on those:








They are all from the first decade of the XVIIth century - the first and the last one are by Roelandt Savery (court painter of emperor Rudolph II), the middle one by Paulus van Vianen (court jeweler and engraver of emperor Rudolf II).
