Re: Old Worlder Ally Contingent

Thank you :-) Nice to be able to raise nostalgic feelings :-)



Ok, time to move on. I prepared the second batch of models, these are from the Fantasy Range of Black Tree Design. I painted the horses, the saddles, the armour and leather on the knights. Then I re-coated everything else black.

Ready to start on the fun part, the coat of arms.

The first knight is done. The paint scheme was also taken from the same White Dwarf article the standard bearer and the the unit champion were inspired by.

The second knight is done. The paint scheme was inspired by (aka shamelessly stolen from) this blog. With the head on the heraldry I tried to copy the front view of the head on the helmet.

Those are some very nice looking knights. I really like the bright colours and patterns.

The next knight is done. The paint scheme was again inspired by (aka shamelessly stolen from) this blog.

Compared with the historical knights, I was at first happy that with the fantasy ones the barding was much more dynamic, flowing around the horse. This would certainly be nice for uniform barding. Not so for regularly painted patterns... the diamonds you see in the photos are the 3rd try, and still, if I follow various lines and creases on the barding, they don't turn out right - but at least now, when looking at the model from a distance, they don't look totally off.

I was also not able to match them in any convincing way at the top, that is why the red stripe runs along the top. I am convinced that the sculptor did something wrong; either that or my brain cannot fold (pun intended) around the crinkles...

As I've said before, love the work. Really interesting to look at with clear detail and colour!
