Mounted Men-at-Arms 5:
I really wanted the flowing tunic to appear flaglike and was searching quite a while for a approriate French coat-of-arms. I found one in Peter Greenhill's & Mario Venturi's Book "Creating Miniature Knights", which is full of spectacular references and inspiration. The Battle Damaged look on the Shield was painted on.
I used Vallejo's Medium 'Sea Grey for the Dappled Horse but only decided to dapple it after I finished it and thought the normal grey looked too boring.
