Armoured knight: Sir Richard in Maille
« on: June 12, 2014, 06:58:16 PM »
Now we know that Andy's done at least one topical miniature in recent years. Here's an idea for another one (inspired by a video that I recently came across) that's also pretty topical. An aging knight armoured in maille who happens to be unexpectedly left handed and likes to give rousing speeches. I could easily see him fitting into a Netherhells adventuring group.

Now this might not be the best video out there, it might not be a good song, but it seems a fitting tribute to one who has amused us for many years and is almost prophetic as he comes stepping out of the past in a haze of light only to eventually fade away when his work is done.

Rick Mayall's noble england video.

I'm all in favour of this idea! I would also be very much in favour of Kev doing a Kindred pilot :)

Sounds like a good idea for a mini, and a fitting tribute for one of the true greats of British comedy.

Great idea!  :thumbup:
Or alternatively, perhaps a slightly anarchic storyteller & his unusual item of soft furnishing?

Good idea, but I wish I had the time to do ANY new models at the moment. You would not believe how much I have to spend doing the dragon stuff.

Oh I can imagine. I'm still waiting for mine.

I know you are. Yours should be ready by the end of the week, though.

Truly? It'd better not come Saturday as there'll be no-one here to receive it.
