Norman Cavalry (Art Miniaturen)

These Art Miniaturen metal Norman Knights were a present from Wolfgang Meyer,  the creator of the Croeburn 1813 dio.
They had no weapons, shields or nags but that wasn´t a problem. The only small problem was getting them to stay put on the horses. I solved it by putting a small blob of clear  Silicon onto the saddles. The same to attach the shields.
The horses are from the HaT El Cid cavalry, the shields from Zvezda livovian knights set and the Spears are self made using florists wire.

They fit well with the Strelets and the HaT period knights. I haven´t based them yet as I am considering rebasing the whole Norman army so far for Impetus.

The sword was  sourced from the spares box..it´s plastic but exactly which set it came from..I can´t remember

My favourite pose....he really looks like he´s going to lance an enemy down.
A small intro to the modelling world...a website called Steven´s Miniaturen. Set up by A member of the Valdemar Forum, Steven, he shows his work and W.I.P´s...
