I didn’t have a great deal of time for this entry, and prepared just two mounted figures from one of my favourite books. Here we have Graf Ulrich von Bek and his companion Grigory Sedenko, both from Michael Moorcock’s excellent “The Warhound and the World’s Pain” - a must for anyone interested in the Thirty Years War (albeit a fantastical setting of the War).
And why “Armour”: here’s an extract from Chapter One:
“The steel I wore, helmet, breastplate, greaves and gloves, was of the very best, as was the west-soaked silk of my shirt, the leather of my boots and breeches. My weapons had been selected from the richest of those who I had killed and were all, pistols, swords, daggers and musket, by the finest smiths. My horse was large and hardy and excellently furnished”
An armoured krieghund as an entry into the Themed Rounds. What better way to start!
