After a long break, I'm back with a new post and painted models for Bretonnia. I finally managed to finish the Questing Knights (6ed.) unit. I honestly don't even remember when I started them, but the joy of painting these guys is truly immense. You could even say that the knights have come home after a long journey. Long ago, they set out on an quest to fight evil in the name of the Lady of the Lake. Driven by her vision, they have travelled to many places in the Old World, fighting all kinds of monsters, bandits, dark servants of Chaos and warlocks to be worthy of sipping from the Grail. Their adventures will surely provide many hours of storytelling over good Bretonnian wine. Who knows, maybe the ministrels are already creating the songs that are to be sung in the taverns.
I would like to point out that the Questing Knights unit is special to me for several reasons. First, the overall story and background outline of the Knights is amazing. Each of them can be considered as a single hero who leaves their home to fight in the name of a higher good or simply to prove their worth and devotion before the Lady of the Lake. Importantly, their original character is somehow reflected in the uniqueness of the model itself.
Second, they are currently my best models, with handpainted fleurs-de-lis on the horses' caparisons. This gave me the opportunity to refresh and refine some of my painting techniques. Third, I was able to convert bits from the regular knight into a model of one of the hard to find Questing Knights miniatures. I realize it's not ideal and has various errors, but the sheer pleasure of creating it gave me a lot of fun.
They will definitely stand out on the battlefield with their color scheme. I decided to combine yellow with red to give them a fiery look. For contrast I used a mix of purple tones and classic black. I am very pleased with the stripes, bridles and harnesses of the horses, as well as the wooden elements, which I tried to make as true to life as possible. I hope you like the Questing Knights in this version. I encourage you to look at the photos.
