Custom Aedirnian Soldier (The Witcher II)

Postby Detroitika » Thu Dec 08, 2016 1:43 am

Hi all! This is a custom minifigure I made based on troops from the fictional country of Aedirn from The Witcher II: Assassins of Kings.
Ingame Reference
This technically makes it fantasy, but this armor from the game is remarkably realistic to late - 15th century Western European man-at-arms garb. The coif and haubergion sleeves are padded, a gambeson is worn over the haubergion, and the helmet is directly based on a Burgundian helmet c. 1475.

The clothwork and sculpting is full-figure, and the legs maintain a good degree of rotation. (Since this figure, I've developed cuisse + jambe + poleyn sculpting which better cooperates with the Lego legs.)

Check the Flickr description for a link to an entertaining video about the gauntlets' origin!

Excellent figure, it looks very realistic. I also really like the archway made with the 1x1 with clip on top.
