[Collapse collapsed title = Hobbies] From the collection of J.

Martin: I not only write about knights, but also collect them.

In particular, miniatures of medieval knights and just toy knights.

energetic American boys in my childhood I had Marx`s castle and a few plastic knights, I loved watching movies about Robin Hood, Sir Lancelot on TV, went to the movies on Prince Valiant. no matter how sad it is, I matured and toy knights and Marx`s castle followed the path of most toys ...

but in 1996, during the painful period of writing my fantasy epic, my old hobbies came to life and I began to buy miniatures again. I collect miniatures in 54mm scale, so called "toy soldiers", sometimes I switch to 70mm scale for nifty Elastolin plastics. These days 25mm "wargame" models are more common, but in my opinion they are too small ...

and I have not seen a model among them that can match the beautifully detailed 54mm scale. My collection is strictly medieval, but within this period my taste is eclectic. I collect plastic, pewter and composite figures; painted and not painted; new and old; from cheap plastic of the Marx castle to modern masterpieces coming out in Russia. From time to time I paint the figures myself. It`s quite interesting and helps to see that world, but my work will never be compared with the masterpieces of the masters of painting that I collect.  George R.
