End of 13th Century
European Knight, End of
HyperScale is proudly supported by Squadron.com
54mm European Knight is well detailed and smoothly cast in white metal.
The casually posed figure consists of seven parts plus a base.
Overall fit was excellent and clean-up was minimal using small files
and sanding sticks. I first pinned and epoxied the torso/legs to the
base, then primed all of the parts using Floquil's Gray Primer cut with
lacquer thinner and applied with a brush. The surcoat's lower front
pieces were then attached. The remaining parts were left off until after
The helmet and axe blade were buffed with a motor-tool, while all
other parts were painted using Andrea Acrylics. The generic nature of
the figure means you can be as simple or as complicated as you like
during the painting process. I tend to paint what I call the
working-man's knight; I leave the figures with complicated heraldry and
fabric designs to those painters with steadier hands and better eyes
than I have.
Once the painting was completed, I added the remaining parts and did
some minor touchups. The helmet can be tilted and turned to a degree to
provide a degree of animation to the figure. Among others, you can go
for a heroically-gazing-at-the-horizon pose or head-down,
I opted for the latter.
Knight, End of 13th Century
||None, but the
figure will readily fit a number of the small to medium sized
Andrea Miniatures round and square bases.
