120mm Imperial Gallery 14th C. Knight - WIP +1

Finished most of the heraldry on the barding. I'll have to clean up some stuff - like the scrolls on the quills. Might even try to write in "Ich Dien" with a Micron Pen. The covering for the head will be painted with an ermine pattern.
As always, painted for effect rather than precise accuracy. For instance, I tried adding lines for the barbs of the feathers, but it looked too busy so left them plain with just a line for the shaft. Speaking of the feathers, I moved the larger ones up a bit - they looked too low previously. The way the front half of the barding is sculpted made it a bit challenging to center and properly angle the heraldry - not saying I got it exactly right, but seems to look okay.
I decided to paint the figure up as Edward III, as I didn't want to paint the white label over the coat of arms :).

    1. Thank you very much, Soren! I am happy with the way the arms of England came out, but wish the front half of the barding wasn't so flowing which made it difficult to figure out the right position of the feathers. Warm regards, Dean
