May was very busy for me and I missed my monthly post, but I hope to make up for it this month.
For some reason I had an itch to paint some sort of classic fantasy knight, and I ended up going with Grenadier's #8130 Armoured Warrior from Julie Guthrie's Fantasy Personalities II line.
I'm fairly happy with him, although he is a bit dark. This may be due to the fact that I primed him grey and not my usual white prime. I really like Julie Guthrie's work for Grenadier. Great line of figures in my opinion.
I struggled with the freehand on the shield. I wanted it to look hand painted on wood, and I guess I achieved that, but it was tough painting on such a small surface. I've always been impressed by other painters' ability to paint amazing little shields and banners, but I usually avoid it myself.
In my imagination he'll be part of an army with green, white, and brown heraldry, but in reality I am unlikely to fulfill that project, at least any time soon. There are plenty of other things filling up my painting queue though, so stay tuned.
