28mm Crusaders Knights

I painted these knights so many years ago that I no longer remember. They are Bretonnian knights from Citadel converted to Crusaders.

I don't have any historical army iny 28mm...  these could be a good inspiration to get started!
I think the first thing to do is to remove those ugly decals from the shields, and paint them as the battle standard.


100YW - 1/72 French Mounted Crossbowmen / Balestrieri Francesi a Cavallo

I wanna start this sunny day in Parma with another French base for Impetus. This are French mounted crossbowmen. Figurines comes for the Zvezda set "French Knights"

PS: I think it's time to show some English too!

Tutorial Army Painter

Cari colleghi combattenti,
ecco un brevissimo tutorial su come ho utilizzato il dipping "armypainter" per questo gruppo di Comando francese per la guerra dei cent'anni.
Dear fellow fighters,
here is a short tutorial about how I used the dipping "armypainter" for this group of French command for the Hundred Years War.

Il primo passaggio è stato un primer. Argento per i cavalieri e bianco per i cavalli
The first step was a primer. Silver for knights and white for horses

Dopo, ho dipinto le figure con colori acrilici Vallejo in maniera molto semplice e solo con colori di base
Next, I painted the figures with Vallejo acrylic colors in a very simple way and only with  basic colors

Le miniature dopo il Dipping
Figures after the Dipping

Ho montato le figure sulla basetta
I put the figures on the base

Il passaggio successivo è stato la lumeggiatura... semplice e senza spendere troppo tempo.
Ed ecco il mini diorama finito.
The next step was the highlight ... simply and without spending too much time.
And here is the finished mini diorama.

Si lo so... Lo sguardo di Filippo è un po' folle...

Yeah I know ... The eye of Philip makes it a bit 'crazy ...
