With the weather finally improving over here in gloomy Flandern, I thought I’d try out my phone camera to photograph miniatures in daylight. Quite pleased with the results below, as well as with the paintjob.
It’s been quite a while since I’ve done anything for my Hospitallers – some dismounted knights around the end of last year, but these probably won’t be seeing much use in my Saga games. I had built these plastic Sergeants by Fireforge Games quite a long time ago but somehow didn’t follow it up with a paintjob, but here we are. Fantastic sculpts, as you can see.
Painting-wise I thought long and hard on the colour scheme for the undergarments. We know that the lowly sergeants among the Hospitallers did not wear the traditional colours of the order, so I had free rein with the palette. Ultimately though, I decided to go with the same colours my Flemish have. It makes it so that I can unify the two armies at a stretch (although different in equipment) and I can certainly use their archers and crossbowmen for this force as well.
Although a long time in the making, these chaps have reinvigourated my medieval appetites; so I’ll definitely be tackling some more Flemish and/or Hospitallers in the near future. Flemish, most likely, as I do tend to go crazy if I paint too many Maltese crosses in one go…
