Black Tree Design HYW Knights - 2nd Round

Here are some group shots of the six BTD knights recently painted - just enough for another foot MAA unit in Lion Rampant. In the photo below they are from left to right, front row: Günther von Schwarzburg, King of the Germans; Sir William de Aldeburg; Sir William de Bohun, 1st Earl of Northampton, KG; rear row: Sir Thomas Erpingham, KG; Thomas de Beauchamp, 12th Earl of Warwick, KG; Pietro Farnese - Captain General of the Papal and Florentine Armies.
 They are all on 25mm magnetic round bases from GF9; the horde tray is from Litko.
Except for the Schwarzburg figure who's from the Early-HYW foot command pack, they are all from the Late-HYW packs. Still deciding on who the six remaining unpainted knights will be.

    1. Thank you kindly, Jonathan. I'm happy with the way they turned out - and I can focus on other projects now. In fact, these are just some figures I picked up at the last BTD 50% sale - didn't really "need" them for anything in particular other than wanting to paint some heraldry :) Regards, Dean

  11. So lovely! I wish I lived close enough to drop in for a lesson in painting heraldry. It is so hard to get a proper effect on a 28mm shield but you do it effortlessly (or so it seems!)

    1. Monty, thank you for your very kind words. To be honest, I feel I'm still learning how to do heraldry. I feel it is more an exercise of painting for effect rather than complete accuracy. That all said I'm happy to share whatever I can. Warm regards, Dean

  12. Outstanding looking heraldry. The detail is excellent and they blend together nicely. I like the basing system you came up with for Lion Rampant. I may have emulate that.

    1. Thank you kindly. To be honest, I hate moving individual figures - even in a small scale skirmish game like LR. So these "horde trays" from Litko are a nice compromise. Best, Dean
