After allowing myself to get side tracked by painting “Hubert de Burgh” last week I was determined that this week would see another 28mm mounted Baron’s War knight completed. This little chap is a made up knight, which is to say the heraldry is not one I have come across but one I have made up. If it does exist out there then it is purely a coincidence as far as I am concerned.
Although it was made up it was inspired by other images I have seen. The light blue and yellow colour combination I have seen used before and rather like it and the cross hatching, albeit in a different way, I have also seen used a good many times. From a painting perspective it represented a nice challenge and overall I’m pleased with it even though some of the squares aren’t quite as even as I would like but that’s something I can work on when I next undertake a square pattern.
As already mentioned this is a made up knight and therefore in need of a made up name. On a previous figure I referred to my family tree for inspiration and decided I would do this once again. In this instance I elected to go with my maternal great grandfather’s name, James Newton Langley.
