King Harold ... Triumphant!

This rather splendid vignette of Foundry's King Harold was painted up for me as a gift from all-round jolly good chap and Wargames Table chum Phil. Naturally I was delighted with such a lovely present.

I think the pictures speak for themselves.

A rich, red, fur-trimmed cloak, only the best for the King!

The shields and the banner pole are both striking and very pleasing. The palette used ties all the figures together very well. Plus the basing is superb.

Another aspect that I really like is the subdued chain mail colour. Seems to give the armour real depth.

Thank you Phil! :o)

Of course, in his first battle he was slain by a horde of Danish warriors, but isn't that always the way with newly painted figures?

Lovely work mate. Very well painted (obviously!) and your use of consistent colour to tie it all together really shines.
