Here we have the second of my two 28mm neglected mounted Baron’s War knights from Footsore. This one has been painted in the heraldry of Sire Nicholas de Poyns. I found his details on a Pinterest image I found on the Parliamentary Roll but I have yet to search out more details on the knight himself.
I’ve never considered myself a quick painter, in fact I would say I am pretty slow. I could never paint for YouTube, I’d be there all day, but I am enjoying painting mounted knights. They are taking an age but I’m pleased with the first two I have done. The real challenge I find with these is the horses and making sure things like the stripes are of even thickness and that they line up. The end result doesn’t tell the full story of just how much touching up I go through to get an acceptable result (I can still see some bits I’ve missed!). One day I might get things right at the first time of asking but that will take a lot more practice yet.
More mounted knights are on their way from Footsore, about a dozen or so I think, but it will be a few weeks before I have another one to offer you. In the meanwhile images of Sir Nick below.
