Work continues on my Baron’s War army. At times progress seems slow but at other times it doesn’t. I think it depends on what pile of figures I look at, the pile I’ve painted or the pile I still have to do. Mathematically I’m approaching half way on the foot figures that I have purchased which will be a landmark moment. Until such times as I buy more figures it will soon start to feel like I am coming down the other side of the mountain. Unfortunately the same cannot be said for the mounted figures and I really must begin to make more progress on these.
Meanwhile back to this weeks figure.
I decided to deviate from authentic characters and heraldry and in doing so came up with this little chap. An uncle who died a couple of years ago whose name was Cecil Green came up in a recent conversation with my mum and dad and this served as my inspiration for the name Sir Cecil de Vert. I may well look at my family tree for further names if I continue down this fictional route.
The inspiration for the colour scheme came from the Orlando Bloom character “Balian de Ibelin” in the film Kingdom of Heaven.
