Chaplain Wilhelm in arms...

During the weekend I been painting some Knights for the Bishops Retinue. The first one are Chaplain Wilhelm that was granted land by Bishop Thomas in 1234.

As I realy don´t know if poor Chaplain Wilhelm ever bear arms I made up his CoA inspired by the Ox of St. Luke. (No historical bearing what so ever;) ) hope you like it anyway...

  1. Are those freehands on the caparison? If so it's an impressive feat to get an exact match five times (six with the banner included). Anyway, a very nice miniature for an interesting project.
