William de Huntingfield

High sherrif  of Norfolk and Suffolk b.1165-d. 1220(21) and one of the Barons who acted as surety to the Magna Carter.  I´ve chosen this  person, (apart from the fact I like the colour scheme) as he can team up with Robert de Vere as one of the Magna carta barons or......later as Sir Roger de Huntingfield b.1196-d.1257 and go off on the crusade with the other Robert de Vere (even though he never did really ;-D )

      He looks weak, weary etc, but the set he comes with has something that is at the end of his lance ;-D

  9. Again a very nice painted knight Paul! Mixing up the periods again? Or are they for a special project?

    1. Thanks Peter.
      They are all Barons from the beggining of the 13th century..which fit with most of my medievals, and I was missing a few leader characters to go along with the Richard lion heart bod. Like the Pieter de Coninck bod, he´s got some followers. With these, plus some flag bearers and extra followers I can field a medieval army with some fitting standards and the commanders to go with them.
      Cheers
