Project Empire Nordland #2 - The Knight Panther Inner Circle


Howdy :)

Welcome to the second Part of my Mini Series about the Nordland Empire Army. This time i take with you a look on the Inner Circle Panther Knights. A Squad of 15 Knights with the typical Panther Cloak and the fine Heraldry of a lil decadent Order of Knights.

The Basic Colors are the typical blue and yellow. But in that case and the Story behind the Inner Circle of every Order i pushed a step further. Let me explain a bit. In the middle Age the most famous and of course the richest Knights had blueisht Plate Mails. It was an Special Kind of Plate that was harder but more flexible as the blacksmiths used a Special technic to make this which in final colored the Iron blue. Those Plates were massively expensive and only the best and richest Noblemen were able to buy them.
So i decided it would be great to have a Squad of Inner Circle Knights who are the noble in perfection. So all Knights Plates in that Squad are blue metal. To give the contrast needed i added some parts of Gold, especially on the helmets to make them just a bit more outstanding. The Cloak with the typical colorsheme of a Leopard/Panther brings the final Flair to that Unit. The cloaks i had to use were those from Games Workshop instead of scratch build some different ones caused on the customers wish.

The horses got also some extra detailing on their cuirass. So all together makes an outstanding Unit for me.

lets have a look:)

Hali Hallo :)

Willkommen zum 2. Teil meiner Mini Serie über die Nordland Armee des Imperiums. Diesmal betrachten wir den Inneren Zirkel des Panther Ordens. Eine Einheit aus 15 Rittern mit vollem Kommando mit den typischen Pantherumhängen und der feinen Heraldik eines Inneren Zirkels.

Die Basisfarben sind typisch Blau und Gelb. Allerdings wollte ich in diesem Fall die Sache noch etwas weiter treiben um die Dekadenz eines so elitären Ordens und speziell deren Inneren Zirkels hervor heben. Kurze Erklärung: Im Mittelalter hatten einige besonders gute Ritter und reiche Lordschaften eine "gebläute" Rüstung um ihren Stand hervor zu heben.
