Crusader Knight with Bird on Head (LOL)

Recommended Posts

Another buddy wanted a down and dirty mini for his paladin. He asked for everything silver except the shield, which would be Templar style white with Red Cross. I had a very short time to paint and tried a bit of directional iridescence bc the armor glows purple when around hellborne demons and the like.

 

Not my best work for sure, but it was a funny mini (why is there a bird on his head?) so thought I’d share a speed painted tabletop mini. Enjoy!

 

Also, I’m interested in getting him back and finishing him up after Thanksgiving, so let me know how you would handle an “imperceptible purple glow, without losing the silvery plate look”...  :)

The helmet crest (ie. "bird on his head") would be a heraldic device.

 

Thanks for the link, it was an interesting read and I wasn’t aware that was a thing. I wonder why they didn’t put a torse between the helmet and the bird/crest? Still looks like a bird to me ;)

Looks good!

How about a subtle metallic purple glaze?

Our world uses heraldic devices; the game world might well have an ensorcelled helmet-bird for all I know! 

Shiny work!

 

And now I can see the birdhelmet talking to the Knight during a fight.

 

*** Hit him! Hit Him!***

*** Not like that! He won't even feel that! Watch out for that Mace!!!! ***

***Do I HAVE to fight him myself?***

Ha!!! Y’all trip me out. ;)

 

I think that’s a great idea and I’m kicking myself now bc I bought a bunch of primary and secondary colored metallics over a year ago and haven’t used them. Ugh what was I thinking. Should’ve put this in WIP bc I’m getting it back and fixing it for reals.

**shiny work!** - Reminds me of Mad Max Fury Road :)

 

And I see it like a bird that just wont leave the knight alone and he befriended it and every fight he thinks they’re trying to hurt his pet :)

      This is a bust from El Greco: Deus Vult / Militi Christi.
       
      I painted him as a Knight Hospitaller.
      Learned a lot on the way.
      There are a few white specks in the pics, I was taking them outside and this is actually not there.
      Also there is more depth than the pics show, some shadows are washed out by the camera.
       
      WIP here: https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/85635-deus-vult-militi-christi-bust-by-glitterwolf/
       
      This one is going to be shipped off as a present to a certain person.
      It will be a surprise and I wonder how it will be received.
       
      Here he is.

      The rest of my Kickstarter for AEG's Thunderstone Quest came in.  This was for an expansion that changed the player count from 2-4 to 1-6 as well as adding a cooperative mode.  I'm not sure I'd want to play this game at 6 players unless it is cooperative because there is a lot of downtime when its not your turn.  In cooperative mode, it seems that everyone goes at the same time, so that probably reduces down time.  
       
      I didn't realize it at the time, but the expansion ALSO comes with two minis (6 were included in the base game so it wasn't strictly necessary).  I also didn't realize that the monk had a mark on her forehead that I THINK is intentional (these aren't the best minis, as you can see from the crease down her back).  I would have painted her a lighter skin tone so the mark would stand out better if I realized that earlier.  I chose green for her since a nice yellow/orange color was already taken by one of the other minis I painted for this game and I wanted unique player colors.  Likewise, I chose white for the crusader because all the good colors were taken and I could see him as a paladin type.  
       
      Hopefully I don't get any more minis for this game because I'm running out of unique player colors.

      Time to paint another bust.
      This one is from El Greco 1:12th scale and comes in a nice tin.
       
      A depiction of a seasoned Crusader.
      I will paint him as a Knight Hospitaller instead of the often seen Knight Templars.
       
      This means mine will have a Black Cape, A Red Surcoat and a White Cross.
