As I get closer to having my Breaking Lances rules finalized (I both bless and curse editors) I've been working towards getting more variety in the choices of knights that will be available. These two are prototypes that will merge into the final model.


More pictures and talky bits up on my blog

Cheers and thanks for taking a look

Those look fantastic

As soon as they are available I will be buying a bunch – both grandsons (7 and 4) want minis to paint and these look perfect

I think you are really on to something here. The fact that they look as though they are straight from an illuminated manuscript makes them very appealing.

Please keep up posted on future developments, and good luck with the editors!

Frederick- Thanks very much! Working on foot knight versions, reviewing stand and pavilions at present. Hoping to launch the line Late Feb, Printing of rules being the kicker.

Gone- You are right on with the style. It's a fun challenge to "recreate" the feeling of the period yet make pieces that work together.

Rhysius- Excellent. That is my master plan.

Great to see a new update

Personally, I wouldnt have thought of doing armor in any color other than a 'toned down' silver or my prefered color, Pewter. IMHO it gives a more realistic, "this armor has been worn/seen action" look.
