Wight Lord and Black Knights


Vampire Counts | Skeletons | Wight Lord | Mousillon | Warhammer | 6th edition

In his lifetime, Sir Lancenaude of Mousillon was known not only for his stature, but also for his excellent skill with the two-handed sword. He had never once lost a duel, and his enemies soon realised that fighting the Bretonnian knight had often cost them their lives. Sir Lancenaude himself was not afraid to face even the terrifying monsters haunting the Old World. During one of his expeditions to distant Araby, he was mortally bitten by a Tomb Scorpion. The servant of the Lady of the Lake defeated the resurrected beast, but he was poisoned by it. Thus, not an enemy but poison defeated Sir Jerrod. His dead body was entombed in the family crypt.

His eternal rest did not last long. One night it was noticed that the entrance to the crypt was open and that there was no body in his coffin. Horrified by their discovery, the castle residents began a search for the dead knight's corpse. Unfortunately, these yielded no results. Later on, it was discovered why... in a battle near the Forest of Arden, scouts noticed that there was a warrior in the enemy ranks who was confusingly similar to Sir Lancenaude. It turned out that he had been resurrected by the foul necromancer Mandrot von Pfeilberz and was now serving in the Vampire Counts army as a Wight Lord.

The model I have is an alternative version of the Wight Lord from Dark Art Studios in larger scale than his original model from the Games Workshop company. I really like his posture and the way he holds his two-handed sword. He reminds me a bit of the Reanimated Horde from Diablo 2: Lord of Destruction. To reference the Bretonnian heraldry, I decided to do a freehand on the coat in the form of black fleur-de-lys on a yellow background filled with skulls.

I did a similar thing with the Black Knights models, which are also from Dark Art Studios. This time they match the Knights of the Realm in scale. There are freehands with fleur-de-lys on the horse caparisons, referring precisely to the Mousillon Dukedom and the personal heraldry of the first duke - Landuin, who was one of the legendary Grail Companions. The sculptures of the knights, on the other hand, due to their lack of resemblance to Games Workshop's models of Bretonnian knights, are the resurrected corpses of the dukedom's long fallen warriors.
