Knight circa 1300
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.
