Norman Mounted Knights

A batch of Norman heavy cavalry. Horses were painted using the oil wash method described elsewhere on this blog. Riders painted seperately - undercoated  black, metal work given a light dry brush of Vallejo Oily Steel and painted up from there.

On future batches I will use very different shield colours and designs so that when based there will be much greater differentiation between shields. It makes it easier/ quicker to use similar colour schemes when doing batches.

As I intend to sell these not sure about whether to base individually, say for Saga, or in pairs for larger games where moving pieces is easier with fewer bases!!


  1. Wow, these are beautiful, good job.

  2. If you are going to sell them via eBay (or similar) leave them unbased with a comment that you can base them singly or on stands as the buyer requests . . . and leave them unflocked so that the purchaser can use his own flocking to blend in with his army.

  3. These are very, very nice. Definitely an eyecatcher in any future owner's cabinet.

    Regarding bases I'd go with Jeff's advice - if you want the hassle. However, I've seen some weird auctions going on lately on eBay where single minis on flocked square bases went out for disturbingly high prices. So, you never know what customers there do expect.
    Anyway, good luck with the sales!


  4. They look too good to sell, superb painting.

  5. Thanks for your comments and advice on selling.
