Great Knight, really Sparklebudgie should take the kudos for this thread, he kicked off the whole
Knights bash interest.
AK your Knight is wearing a Monty Python armour set, have you considered using the Gauntlets from this
outfit? It's slightly fiddly but if you can cut out a recess on the inside of the glove you can get a vintage wrist peg in there.....fiddly but worth it.

heres the pic I posted on chat...just a quick snap, I'm going to shoot it with a bit of dio over the weekend.




.......also the horse armour I picked up recently has 2 left back plates( the bit around the tail) if anyone has a Marx right side one please PM me.

Well worth seeing again, I never tire of seeing your Knights, can you break down the parts for us? I (and I'm sure everybody else)
would love to know what you used....is all the kit Ignite?
If I remember rightly were all the figures restored from horrific damage?....Bloody stupid kids!!!

Let the flood commence!!

You do need a good tight figure if you are using some of the heavy die cast metal swords.
Here's a fail, wrong hands and balancing the sword on his head.

Most of the kit I have used is Ignite, which is good quality.

They all look great! The Ignite stuff is very nice. Always wished they or Cotswold would have done a Byzantine warrior.
