Mounted Medieval Heralds

In between painting a lot of modern 28mm I have also managed some medieval stuff.
Today I can show you three 28mm mounted heralds from Curteys Miniatures - I'm quite pleased with how these turned out. I was hoping to show you the first of my Anglo-Saxons for Lion Rampant, (perhaps I'll call it Wyvern Rampant for the Anglo-Saxon Kingdom of Wessex), but the photos I took were out of focus - I'll try again later.

Here are the happy heralds doing their thing at the tournament:




The bases are unfinished as the chap I painted them for likes to do his own basing.

  2. Great job, and those Curtsey Miniatures look very nice also. I assume the heraldic lions are transfers - is that the case and were they difficult to apply (especially over the folds of the horse furniture)?

    1. Thanks Lawrence. Yes the lions are decals, and they were quite tricky to apply over the folds - I had to use plenty of decal softener.

  5. Absolutely lovely! Red can be a bugger to shade and it's come out really nicely on these. Nice work with the decals too. As a west country boy myself (born a Dorset boy) I fully support your renaming proposal too!

    1. Glad you like them Alan. Yes I'm happy with how the red worked out too.
      Hehe, glad you approve my "Wyvern Rampant" idea for the Anglo-Saxons ;-)
