Another week, another Footsore Baron’s War knight and another opportunity for some freehand painting. This weeks offering is Richard The Lionheart, King of England. The figure comes as a twin pack, the other figure being mounted and in a slightly different pose with his helmet on. I think I might start on the mounted version sooner rather than later but look at doing the freehand heraldry a bit different.
For some reason I couldn’t get the shield to photograph as well as I’d like. Not enough of a photographer to understand why but the end result is reflective light so the three lions do not show up as well as they look in the flesh. My best guess is that it is down to the metallic paint. Gold was appropriate to use but maybe a yellow would have photographed better? It is what it is.
