Knight circa 1300

October 26, 2017 in Uncategorized

Hi all,
If I am not building biplanes I am probably painting a figure. This is another older work, the Verlinden knight in 120mm scale. Painted in enamels and artist’s oils, I just wanted to do something interesting with some Heraldry and whilst the style of lis lion might not be contemporary, it was sure fun to do!

Usually Verlinden figures appear a litle stiff in their poses but this one has a bit more animation to it. I added a number of little ‘leather’ details on the shoulders and wrists to hide the awkward joins which are always difficult to fill in chainmail.

The base is a part of the kit which Verlinden usually supply.

  1. Great figure, pose, and especially your painting & extra “touches.”

  2. Paul, you freehanded the shield figure? EGAD! Certainly prototypical! Heraldry is fascinating, lion rampant, I’m guessing. Maybe you can do a bar sinister, easier and most folks would miss what that says.

  3. Nicely done! Paint work is excellent.

  4. Wow. That is just superb.

  5. You’re right about the animation in this figure, Paul, and your painting and attention to detail has made the most of it.
