Fantasy Knights?

Fantasy Knights?

One of our talented sculptors was playing around with our soon-to-be-in-plastic horse bodies and created an armored version. It got us thinking about knights and cavalry for our Classic Fantasy range. 

Would you be interested in a set like this? What should the riders look like? Let us know your thoughts below! (comments may not appear immediately because they have to be approved - you wouldn't believe the amount of spam posts we get!)

I would love to see fantasy knights! I am desperatly searching for knights I could use for Dol Amroth and all that exists is too unrealisticly proportioned.

Just so as not to drop in the middle of the ford… and because I need a multitude of well-made horses, at the right scale.
This kind of medieval and Renaissance saddle was often held by two straps (a fore-girth and a back-girth). I’ve seen that American rodeo “western” saddles are held in place in the same way : same solid/hard use !
And you can take inspiration from the magnificent medieval saddles made by a Polish craftsman, Martin Ruda (mrleather.org).
I wish you good research. Greetings.

I’d loved to see an armoured mounted team in Death Fields. Sounds like it could be a fun and unique idea.

I’d really like to see some tournament and jousting knights. Especially frog helms- Since it’s fantasy they can use these in battle.

I’m all for these!

But I still think a Les Grognards style cavalry would be amazing. There’s too few rough rider alternatives that dont require significant conversion work

If its going to be fantasy knights, I’d love to see some true “paladin” flavour knights – true heroes (or villains) who were a statement of solidity and purpose

Chaos knights…not too many real cost effective alternative to the Evil Empire

Fantasy Knights (particularly Late Medieval/Early Modern inspired) would be an insta-buy for me.

Im loving that design.

The riders should look accordingly armored as well, with optional distinctives as to being able to accomodate them in different armies without too much hassle.
