Countesse de Brionne

Actually this one is a conversion based on the new plastic knights. Beautyfull minis, even if they could need some more details. GW gave out some of the new knights for a bretonian painting contest here in germany, so i was able to get my hands on one of them quite early. I thought of converting this knight into a female bretonian hero on a quest. So a nice big axe should do the work of the regular knights lance and some more details made a hero out of the normal plastic knight. The painting was a bit insane ... i have to say chessboard pattern looks beautyful but i won´t do it again on such a big mini. Never ... :) or maybe ... no never. For the heraldiks i used some (or better a lot of) fleur de lis, since the knights laid down their family heraldiks when questing after the old background. After 70hours of painting i´m not so sure if i really want to start a bretonian army, but as a mini-adicted junky it is hard to say no, when having so nice lil pewter-dolls in mind ;)

Great paint job. The chess board paint is really nice. Some of your nmm aren't as smooth as they should be though, na just kinding they are top notch. Your freehands are amazing. I could go on for days but I'll stop here to not kill you of boredome.
