In among the ‘samey’ commission projects I have going is this wonderful little breath of fresh air. Federico da Montefeltro, a knight of the Duke of Urbino. He’ll be commanding my wargaming compatriot Carl’s Venetian forces in future battles.
Carl supplied me with a depiction of the heraldry to be painted onto the barding and such, and I really enjoyed painting this – quite different from my usual freehands.
These are the first late medieval models for the blog, but they won’t be the last – I have a box of plastic Perry knights waiting in the wings. They probably won’t be lavished in this way, though.
That’s it for today – I’m off to Cambridge with the in-laws tomorrow. Tally ho!
