Bezainting was adding small pieces of hard armour (usually metal, usually discs -"bezaints") over the top of leather armour, to add more protection to it at strategic points, rather than all over it!

Definitely liking the pick, I wouldn't change it to a hammer.

The lucern hammer idea is a good one.. yeah they were used in the middle ages, an anti-cavalry weapon.
Perhaps the delgon heavy infantry would have a few of these pole-hammer soldiers attached to them, staying behind their shield wall, so that if cavalry come close, they can be used against them... a fun addition would be to give the lucern hammer a hooked back, rather than spike, like a bill-hook, so they could try to snag & drag a rider from his mount and the heavy infantry could then attack them with their battle picks  Shocked   Could make a nice opportunity for a militia captain's specialized skill.


For the knight, the armor details & padded barding are looking great.
For stirrups, rather than regular stirrups (which would obscure the fubarnii's cool feet, what about a wood pedal, kind of like a thin bike pedal? it could be 'L' shaped, coming out of the bottom of the padded barding, probably connected by a "Y" shaped leather strap that runs under the barding which connects to the other side's 'Y' shaped leather straps going down the other side .. not that the detail of it would be seen, but fun to know how something works anyway  Grin

Been away for a week - and what do I come back to find Smiley

That noblis mounted heavy cav knight?? Stunning work, Mike. He is perfect, if you ask me. Can't really see anything I would like to see changed, really. I like it a lot and can't hardly wait to try my painting skills on that one. Looking forward seeing how his companions turns out. Any chance you might show him next to a 'regular' knight when he is done?

And then the Delgon heavy infantry dude. A lot has already been said - especially about his weapon Grin So wouldn't actually add to that - just say I like the pick/tower shield combo wether it's useful in a fight or not.

And last about shield decoration - have you thought about doing a delgon set of water-slide decals instead? With a transfer sheet you could have various designs for the shields - which would help us define the different delgon regions etc - but also give the freehanders a chance to show us their skills.

Excellent stuff on both of them. Like clam I've been away for a while, so to come back and see the Delgon trooper is excellent. Looks like I'll need some of those to protect my Deraks!

Love these-especially the big shields and the picks. Was wondering if we'd see something riding the enuk nobilis too Smiley

There might even be a unit of nobilis riding heavy cavalry eventually, but that'll be a bit down the line!
Sculpting progress is slow, but I am getting there on both the character and those pick troops Smiley

Some very quick photos to show that I have been doing something with my time... Sorry they aren't terribly good photos but you get the idea!

Wow.. that's stunning.

I initially thought the lance looked too heavy, but seeing it now I think it looks perfect. I think maybe the wire armature was throwing off my sense of proportion a bit. His pose is also great, I especially love the hand resting on the Enuk's neck. It gives a really nice sense of the bond between mount and rider.

I don't think the pick and shield combination looks terribly wrong. Maybe a spike on the end of the hammer (or even a secondary knife or something) wouldn't go amiss so that they can stab when fighting in close formation (with those big shields there might not be room to swing without bumping into each other) but for sheer armour piercing ability it looks very wicked. I imagine, since the delgon lands are not cavalry-friendly and they haven't suffered as much from the Devanu, they don't think of long weapons and spears as being quite so essential.

Oooh upping the game with the detail I see  Grin  I would increase the thickness of the hand guard on the lance. Not by much though, just enough to give a little more protection to his pinkies (or greenies/brownies).

Thanks for the positive comments  Smiley

I'm not yet sure if his armour will end up being fairly typical for the elite cavalry, or if he happens to have some particularly nice armour...

As to when he will get into production, I'm really not sure. I will probably get a few extra masters cast up and offer them here on the forum, which should reduce the waiting time a bit.

Excellent stuff. A bunch of them to lead a mass of cavalry would be welcome.

I'm sure that no matter what path you take - it will be awesome Cheesy
