The King, the bear and the maiden fair.

No knights this time, as the joust has been disturbed by arrival of several villains. Tyro king of the Scotts, and a maiden of the court are threatened by a band of brigands, a ferocious bear and a dreadful giant. All figures with exception of the king and the giant are side characters of Codex Manesse charts.  The fair maiden is an object of affection of Graf Gotfrit von Nifen. Thugs are infamous murderers of knight Reinmar von Brennenberg. The bear is soon to be killed by Herr Hawart to become a figure of his crest. And the giant Harpin de la Montagne is our special guest star from Chretien de Troyes “Yvain, le Chevalier au Lion” Garrett MS 125 manuscript, after a serious face reconstruction surgery. Just to add flavour to the knights collection. Enjoy.
