This week I managed to complete another mounted knight, this one based on the heraldry of Sire Huge Thalemache. Now, in anticipation of the obvious question, no I don’t know if he was huge. Given his father was Sire Justin Thalemache, so called because he had a one inch willy, I expect he was named Huge in an effort to play down his genetic appendage.
So, what can I tell you about this particular figure? Well two things spring to mind. Firstly, the sculpt, as with all the Footsore Baron’s War range, is excellent with minimal clean up required. Secondly, the paint scheme I went for was, how can I put it, a complete pain in the arse! To be fair it wasn’t that bad but it was very time consuming and was a further reminder that each mounted knight will take a while to paint, especially if I continue with schemes similar to this one.
The good news is that’s my third mounted knight done, the bad news is I have 15 more to do and Footsore recently released another 4 or 5 mounted figures. Still lots more figures to paint before I worry to much about buying any more so I’ll concern myself about that much further down the line.
