Chitonet Qlain, the Holy Order


Painted some time ago, these are 1/72 Zvezda figures, a 300pt warband for Song of Blades and Heroes. The setup is quite uniform with six heavy infantry, a mounted commander and a female knight(?), originally Jeanne d'Arc from the Italeri HYW French set.


The Chitonet Qlain of Jackewline is supposed to exist like the Teutonic order, something foul backing a great ideal. When the kingdom collapsed during the times of the Great Escape, the Order set itself up as rulers of a small country and committed everything they could get away with.


I chose a red and white livery for everyone with some slight variety on the shields (they were originally engraved but I filed those off). 


And a short battle in which they were beaten off by a neighboring landowner's retinue when trying to loot one of his villages.

  2. Nice. I like the dark color for the shadows in the folds of the white clothing.

  4. Great looking warband, Andras. The red/white heraldry ties them together very nicely.
