Just recently my modelling has mostly been all about knights and to be fair I have enjoyed it. The Baron’s War figures from Footsore Miniatures are excellent and I will be keeping a close eye on the range as it continues to expand. Included in the range are some mounted knights and I decided to buy one and feature it in another little diroama. You might recognise the figure as a foot knight I have shown in a previous post.
Since I completed and posted my previous diorama I discovered some interesting information on Hospitaller Knights. Long story short it seems that black tunics and shields both with white crosses owes more to artistic licence than fact. It would seem that black tunics with white crosses are fine but the shields were in fact red with white crosses. Based on this discovery I felt compelled to do another diroama sporting the correct colour scheme.
The model provided another opportunity for plenty of freehand, albeit only crosses, but getting size and spacing consistency proved a challange. The flag was another one made using Japanese writing paper and the method described in my other diorama post. Overall a simple affair, just a few knights standing around together really. That said it’s probably my best bet for an entry into Azazel’s Jewel of July.
