The next two knights are done. I do like the colour scheme of the orange knight, but in comparison to the other ones he looks quite dark and drab...

The next knight is done. I painted the lance black, then grey and finally white stripes on it. The idea was to represent a wooden lance that was painted with slightly translucent white, so the woodgrain still showed.

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...

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.

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.

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 unit based on the historical models is done, the last part was to add static grass to the bases.

On to the next 12 knights based on Black Tree Design's fantasy models.

The unit leader is done as well. I am not really happy with how all the fleurs turned out, but what you see here is the umpteenth try...

This model took me some time but I finished it today. With the flag I cheated a bit (it was scanned and printed from an old White Dwarf), but the rest of the model is painted completely freehand. I would have liked to get the lion heads especially more consistent, but this is the best I can manage...

Anybody having an idea, based on the standard bearer, what the unit champion will look like? And where the paint scheme of the standard bearer comes from?
