    Wow, fantastic project Luca !!
    .... you're the n° 1 when it's about painting medieval knights !! (y)

    I like the way how you achieve a very tight and precise painting with acrylics, it's beautiful.

    Two questions
    - is this 90mm soldiers figure still available, where can I order one, ... and as it is an old figure, is the casting quality still good ? Nice clean castings ?
    - second question : there was a second English Knight in this 90mm series (Diego Ruina once painted one very beautifully) , did you know that - according to what you can see in an illustration in the osprey book on the battle of Crécy - you could perfectly do the other English knight in this range as Godfrey de Harcourt, one of Edward's commanders at Crécy in 1346 ? Same armour and all ... :) ... Well, I got one myself and I planned to do that figure as G De Harcourt, but never mind - I have the heraldry of this knight if you're interested, just e-mail me ;)

    heraldry of crécy 1346

    for Luca : some of the heraldry of Crécy.
    Godfrey the Harcourt, the renegade knight from Normandy who fought for the English at Crécy in 1346, had the following coat of arms : two yellow bands on a red field, with in the left upper corner a small blue shield (called "escutcheon of azure" in heraldic terms I believe).

    A very interesting historical personality, this Godfrey de Harcourt. He was the son of a knight of Normandy and a Flemish mother, and all of his life he seems to have been a chronic rebel against the French crown.
