Like buses the units arrive two at a time ! After months of nothing I get two units of Knights done in short time.
More 28mm Fireforge Figures, this time the Templar Cavalry set painted up as the less well known (and pretty small) Knights of St Lazarus.
I read a book on these a while back and the green crosses give them a different look from the normal red and white.

Leper knights. There’s an interesting thought.
Cool paintjobs. The green-on-white does indeed look neat, and this “oil paint + wipe” method that (to the best of my recollection) I’ve never encountered before seems to produce an excellent look for animal hide.10/10/2017 at 18:41 #73547
Cheers Roderic, the oil paint technique is very old school, I picked it up from guys who were using it in the 1970s !

Great work on my absolute favorite of the militant Holy Order Knights!

Very cool mini’s!
I’ve been interested in the order since someone I knew became priest in charge of St Vincent’s church which is the home of the Military & Hospitaller Order Of St. Lazarus Of Jerusalem, Grand Bailiwick Of Scotland here in Edinburgh. This order is a modern (instituted 1910) organisation but sparked my interest in the original order, which I had been unaware of before.
