It's a wonderful project you are working on. I'm looking forward to see the miniatures. Merry Christmas to you! Karl
Ahoy Karl- thanks very much indeed! I'm excited in seeing full hordes of them marching! This time next month we should have some painted examples! Cheers and a Cool Yule to you and yours!
I missed this post........wonderful, brilliant, gurdytastic. The hurdy gurdy in the woodcut has straight sides which is more 16c. The lute style in your concept picture is more 18c as far as I am aware (I used to own a straight sided instrument based on the one in Bosch's Garden of Earthly Delights...but sold it and bought a camper van which was much more useful).
Springinsfeld- Love your love for the hurdygurdy! My design is based upon a skelly playing it in Breugel's "Triumph of death" painting. Take a look- he's riding on the wagonhttps://i.ytimg.com/vi/-DaoElPFSnc/hqdefault.jpgI hope you still have the camper van! CheersThs
Oh yes, you've got it just right.... That's the bony guy I was thinking of at first. Great project. I sadly sold the VW van and bought a boring but considerably more practical and cheaper to run car.
