Thanks Bernt
Sadly, I don't know anything about him or any of his other figures. I just picked up that little lot a year or two ago.

There is a link to Menz in the Links section with a note that indicates to contact them via snail mail.  I believe some of this set is represented there.

Yes, there is tag for menz and one for crusades which will both show the pictures in questions.  They are in the tag cloud at the bottom of the gallery page or you can search based on the term menz from the gallery page.


Both will show you the figures in question.  I have the Menz of crusaders attacking a castle which is amazing - Crusaders hoisting storming ladders and defenders throwing stones on them and doing a variety of defender things.  Have a nice diorama designed to show them off.

EH stands for Ernst Henniges.

For those who are interested in, the best set about crusades is available from Menz, engraved by Frank
There are some figures painted somewhere in the site

Here are some more, I don't know if there are more in the set. Here we have (auf Deutsch) :
Gottfried v Bouillon
Richard Loewenherz (with three lions on his shield!!)
Bohemund v Tarent
Tankred v Apulien
Raimund v Toulouse


Editor is EH, engraver HL
I don't know who EH is, HL presumably Lecke

 The crusades and the principal characters of the struggle make for great subject matter, guess I'll put that one on my long list of subjects.... ::)

The set comprises different people of the crusades (I don't remember the editor)
And you are right this figure is identify a Godefroy; it was just my idea to paint it as Richard
Eric
Artistic license, whatever, I enjoy your artistic interpretation of this figure, the ability to paint the flat with ones own style, flair and artistry is one of the finer points of this medium in my humble opinion.

You are  right Eric, but on the basement we can read Gottfried v. Bouillon. So perhaps originally it was Godefroid de Bouillon but painted as Richard ....

We can debate about the precise moment
But it is sure that during the crusade there were only two lions

I think it is not Richard but Godefroid de Bouillon 1st King of Jerusalem. His bronze statue is on a square in Brussels. He was born in Belgium.
Philippe
Nothing gets by you Philippe. especially if it has to do with Belgium! do you have this figure done as Bouillon?
It's ironic that Bouillon's name comes up for me as I have just finished a fictional book which involves Bouillon and the conquest of Jerusalem.
