House of Ulvåsa

Here are one more Swedish Knights on a Baltic Crusade.

Representing Magnus Larsson Boberg of the House of Ulvåsa and later the son Gudmar Magnusson.

The House of Ulvåsa had their main estates in the Province of Västergötland in the, back then, central parts of Sweden.






The CoA are realy a little to early, probably not in use untill late 13th century after the House, by marriage, joined up with the House of Ulv that was relatives to the Royal House of Bjälbo....

  1. You, Sir, are maddeningly inspiring and depressing at the same time! Thats a wonderful fig and I LOVE the paint job. I wouldnt have thought he white emblem on yellow would have worked well but it looks amazing, and of course you did that free hand too....

    Well done!

  6. Excellent job and as Willie says, having some background on 'who' is never wasted and adds to the figure... otherwise he'd just be the 'guy with the white lion'.

  7. Thanks my friends !

    Glad you like the Knight from the House of Ulvåsa.

    Sorry to disapoint you about the lion, its a transfer in the bottom...but as always I paint over them to get it more in the same style as the rest of the mini, the transfers are in my mind to "clean" to be used rightaway.

    Best regards Michael
