    Well after fighting with this figure for a month, he's almost done; a few touchups left...had to scrap the saddle cantle and sculpt a smaller one so the Knight would fit on the horse. Perhaps I should have put a touch of putty in places, but it isn't too noticeable in real life.
    The main pieces are all quite heavy and took a lot of planning to paint and assemble. I was out of my league on this one, but a good learning curve.
    Still have to finish the groundwork but it was so heavy I had to mount it on the base to handle the weight during assembly. I hope you like him. Thanks to David (Bailey on PF) for his help with crosses:).

    That's a very impressive piece of work Mary, both the painting and the figure. Definately not a figure for the faint hearted.... good job. :)

    Thanks, all...I think the crosses could use some better shadows; not sure of the right colour when they are so large. Suggestions welcome :)

    That looks great Mary. You really are knocking 'em out at a rapid rate and as others have said, you're getting better and better all the time.

    I also admire the way you're not afraid to step outside your comfort zone, and take on challenging paints head on.

    A nice wooden plinth would set this one off nicely.

    Nice work, Mary. Love the way you solved the white on such a large surface. The crosses are freehand?

    Looking good. Nice job with the crosses. They seem like such simple designs but they can sure be tough to freehand. I also like how you've done the dirt on the bottom of the horse's caparison.

    If I hadn't read the earlier thread about the saddle, I would have had no idea from looking at the pictures that you'd had to resculpt it. Assemblying and painting those 90mm mounted figures is a real challenge, but the end result is just so cool. Keep up the good work.

    Another winner Mary
    Good job solving the fit problem with the saddle... if this was easy, everybody would be doing it;). As always the white looks great.

    Cheers

    Looking good Mary, this kit is quite an undertaking. I have painted 2.5 of theses in the past and can remember all the problems of trying to work with such a heavy piece and the complexity of painting and assembly, congratulations on this and another step forward for your painting skills.
    Cheers
