I got really inspired by John's Knights of Bal Timorea and looked forward doing something cool. After thinking a bit I decided on a disillusioned knight, coming back from years of battle with the never ending ork hordes. I envisioned my hero to be grumpy, old, hurt and dirty and all his glamour from the olden days is gone. With him walks his servant, a guy he picked up on his travels and who carries his stuff.
here's the knight. I started with a Bretonnian leg set. on top of that a torso from the Vampire Counts Blood Knights. Very cool bitz and very easily made into 'good' guy-stuff.
The head is from the Imperial Guard Bitz Pack Bare heads, very useful, pick it up if you can.
The left arm holds the reigns for his horse. His right arm holds a shield, which is Bretonnian with an old lion bit John had laying around. I had to change the arm, because the shield had a left arm attached.
The horse is allright, I did damage some of the clothing
here's the servant. Again an IG head, looking down and out.
The body is from the Vampire Count Grave Guard, again easy to reuse in different armies.
The left arm is an old Bret bit.
The right arm that is holding the lance is actually from a LOTR Minias Tirith Towerguard set. Very useful as the elbow is exactly what I wanted.
The lance itself has an different flag on it, cut out from a Skeleton banner.
Here it is, I am super excited, hopefully you all got some inspiration from this!
