The Red Knights!


A brief interlude from the nautical theme...
Three sets of knights from Curteys range of 28mm Tournament Knights. Each set has sheets of decals for shields, horses & tabards. Some of the tabards I painted freehand as the decals were just too fiddly to apply due to crossbelts & creases. My friend Barrie is doing his own basing for these.








All the best,

John.

    1. Cheers mate, the heraldic decals really make a difference.

    1. Ta Bro! Did you notice the one very silly K-nigit that has a kettle hat for jousting instead of a full face helm...it will end in tears I daresay.

  4. Cracking work! (I love decals but they always make me nervous when I have to apply them...)

    1. Thanks Curt. Yes these decals are tricky to work with over the sides of the horses, even with plenty of decal softener - straightforward on the shields though.

  5. Hi, I just bought this series of miniatures, and the lances supplied are just straight metal rods. I was hoping you could give some tips on how you sculpted your lances?

    1. I didn't sculpt them Tim, that's how they came to me via my client. As far as I know that was how they were meant to be supplied as part of the tournament knights set from Curteys Miniatures. I think they may have used some of the same figures for other medieval sets, perhaps without these jousting lances?

    2. Could be. OK, thanks, I'll keep looking for "jousting sticks", thanks for the reply
