Hi, Maybe someone can help me a bit. I ordered this bust. It will take a while before I paint it, bit already I'm considering possibilities. He is sold as a Teutonic Knight, I love the yellow/black cross with the eagle, but am not sure if I can pull it off. Considering the colours shown I want to ask : 1. Is it viable to paint the cape brown instead of white? 2. The red Innerhelmet..Would that be metal or leather? And my most important question 3. I know of the Knights Templar, White Livery with Red Cross, The Hospitallers , Black with white Cross and sometimes Red with white cross. But could I choose any of these colours? I was wondering if the helmet he's holding is a distinctive Teutonic one or if the other orders wore these too. I tried googling and am a history fan. But I'm not sure about this. Any thoughts from the people who are more into this period?
