I really like this period, particularly because in all my painting of ancients I find myself painting with the same colors over and over and over again and painting in muted tones, whereas these guys allow me to paint something a little brighter and practice some free-hand techniques. This is also why I am excited to start on the War of the Roses figures I have coming to me in the mail from the fine folks at Old Glory.
Here are some photos:
|Some dismounted knights. They are all individually based, rather than being on stands, as I wasn't aiming at any particular rules set, being pretty new to things when I painted them.|
|Basingbourne at the ready.|
|A close up on FitzWarin (I think). The ermine is free-hand.|
|What would the HYW be without some bows?|
|Spears behind a wall.|
Until next time,
Si vales, bene est.
