Thanks for the compliment & for the feedback, yep Knights are crazy fun, and also frustrating to paint. The scale means you can really go to town
I look forward to seeing your Knight which you have vowed.
I totally agree on the "no-banners" thing. They are instantly recognisable by their heraldry.
Reminds me of this: https://www.youtube....h?v=Jy2YhxXn7NY
And Kill markings would look pretty cool... What's a WW?
Are you thinking like a stylised wolf or wolf head for the kneepads as a visual tie-in? Maybe a campaign or expeditionary force marker?
I plan on using more overt wolf iconography on the Questoris Knights. I want to run them as a pack with 1 Alpha (the Warden) a Beta (Gallant maybe) and the Paladins/ errants as the main wolf pack.
The only real tie-in wih the Wolves, so far has been that the Pilots initials are on the left breastplate in Elder Futhark (runic script). I will be using my Grandfathers initials W B W (Wilfred "Bill" Wallbanks). Although fighting alongside the Wolves as Oahsworn, they are a separate entity altogether. It gives me a break from all the grey
Previously you had to have 1 standard Knight for each Cerastus or Magheara to make a Household. I need to see if this is still the case.
The Cerastus Knights are the Elites, so for them animals, like the dragon (Acheron), the lion (Castigator), possibly a saturnine ram, Falcon or a stag for the Lancer, If other variants came along then possibly mythical creatures such as Manticores, Chymaera's....
I also plan to name each Knight after a sword using fictional and historical sources, so the Acheron is Serpents Breath, the sword of Uhtred Ragnarsson from Bernard Cornwells books. The Castigator is named Sword of Kings, after the Kings sword in the Vikings series.
