Nolisium House of Nobles (mounted)



It seems once the horses are finished, the medieval tough guys (the mounted knights) take little effort to do. This is a 14-man strong mounted contingent to join the Golden Prince of Nolisium in his battles. All of the figs are the remainders of the Italeri Medieval Tournament box, but originate from the HYW French & English sets. They look kind of weird compared to Zvezda but as a singular unit they are quite decent.


I was trying out more possibilities to take photos, these ones are maybe a little bit better. Perhaps it is just the figs, they are not very photogenic.


After two days of foul weather and snow (!) it is finally sunny enough so I even took them out. These are pretty good too.



The last version is to make the PC/laptop background look suitable or find a proper picture and use it as a small portable studio, sadly enough it was either too dim or too bright, this is the dark version.


With these I completely ran out of things to paint, is it real? What a shame. But now the Golden Prince's army needs the levies only to be complete.

  2. Hi, Andrew: the mounted unit looks well painted and previewed. The exterior shots are very crisp, plus I think the shadows are cool. Nice job.

    1. Thank you, too bad the lighting ruined those last 2, anyway I forgot many a tricks during the past few weeks because there weren't a thing to take photos of. With a good sunlight it is quite easy but even then I usually take 2-3 shots from every possible angle.
