Can't wait.... Scott and Crowe are a dream partnership....!PS. Did you see the medieval landing craft?? Excellent! :o)
Yeah, I'm a bit confused about those. Are they real? I've never seen them before.I also love the ship at the beginning. I can't tell if its a big fancy Cog or an Arabian Dhow. I think its the former and if so, then I anticipate a resurection of my various naval model projects once the models for RM6 are out of the way...But apart from all that, I'm well stoked. I don't care if people think its just a mish mash of Gladiator and Kingdom og Heaven. Scott has come through for me. I always wanted him to do Norman/medieval and now, not only has he done two, but he's covered two of my favourite subjects; Robin Hood and the Crusades! The only thing missing now is for him to do a film about the Battle of Tannenberg!
They look like medieval versions of D-day landing craft - I suspect they may be products of the Hollywood mind but they look great...Can you imagine him doing Alexander Nevsky??? Always wanted to do this ever since Minifigs did this range back in the seventies/early 80's (??) based on the film... early medieval knights, with great helms surmounted by massive fanciful crests, white surcoats with the black cross, warrior monks battling through the snow... wonderful imagination fuel!
I've never seen that film alas. Is it Russian?
It is... 1938.. Sergei Eisenstein...This is a good excerpt...http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pXr0m7SaGvs&NR=1&feature=fvwpLoads and loads of Soviet propoganda, but even before the war started!
Good old Prokofiev!Theres not much that really needs colour when you have Teutons on a frozen lake under Russian skies. LOL
BTW. I'm informed that there is a credible source for square shaped medieval landing craft.
