    Hi Guys
    Just finished this today and managed to photo it, before I dropped my camera and broke it!

    Caused me a few headaches but I loved the challenge

    The horse harness was replaced by using pvc tape the girth and body harness was replaced using lead foil, the lance staff was also replaced using a barbie skewer and the flag is an item bought off the net
    As usual all comments welcome

    Cheers

    John

    Thanks for all your comments, very much appreciated and helpful

    The lichen is made by covering small areas with a thinned down white pva glue, then sprinkling a very fine sand onto the glue, then when dry, drybrushing with several colours of oil paint, yellow brown light green. to just pick up the fine grains of sand and thats it

    Cheers

    John, great painting and groundwork. Many thanks for the tip on Lichen, I've filed it away in the old memo pad for future reference.

    Cheers Ken
