As mentioned in my previous post, I'm painting up a unit of Pegasus Knights as a christmas gift to my younger brother. I'd hoped to have one done by now, but my first two paint schemes didn't look quite right, but now on the third take, I think I'm heading in the right direction!
I'm doing three of these, and each Knight will have one of the secondary colours as his - this is obviously the purple one, heh. I'm not happy with the freehand on the shield, think I'm going to remove it, and rather use one of those water transfers that came with the box. Also I think the shield needs a yellow rim, to make it stand out a bit more. I'd like to try some freehand scrollwork on the non-shield parts of the tabards, though, but I'm having trouble finding a pattern I like - if anyone got any pictures of nice patterns I could use for inspiration, that'd be most welcome!
I also need help deciding how to paint the mane and the tail; should I keep the feathers/hairs bright, maybe give them a highlight more, or should I have them fade to dark brown/black at the points?
Owh, and hope you like it!
