Smile - you're on camera!

Here are the two photos I failed to upload the other day. Unbloodied and unbowed, I struggled with HTML for the first time until I understood what was going wrong.

So, from the back and front, ladies and gentlemen I give you some English nobles. Dressed to kill and ready to fight for God, England..... and if a ransom or two should come their way then, well, it would be rude not to :)

I have done a bit of tidying up (particularly on the cadence mark on knight second from left) since taking these shots; that electronic eye is pretty unforgiving of a slipped brushstroke, eh?


  1. Most excellent painting. I will live vicariously through your HYW project as I concentrate on other projects myself.

    P.S. I just added you to my blogroll
    P.P.S. Have you done anymore work on this recently?

  2. Thank you!

    I've not done any work on these for a while because of Mike's commission, but they are the next on the list. I reckon a couple more to get an element finished, and then some spearmen with pavises.
