@ John: The horsemen on the picture are not really heavy armed knights. they are more what was know as "Reisiger" or "Coustillier". Wearing lighter armour and the horses are mostly unarmoured.

The two middle figures are wearing german sallets. But this type of helmet was used in other parts of Europe as well. I paint them without any special sign for a certain nation but will use them as germans.

@ Jörg: okay, the missing lance confused me, now I know which figure it is.

Very nice additions, what lieges are the knights connected to?  Or what region of Europe are the subjects from?

Hello Christoph,
yes, the figure is from Carl / Cortum.
I removed his lance, that' why I can him only show from the back.

Hello Jörg,
no problem.
Nice effects with the gold on the armour!
Who ist the editor of this figure? Carl?

Here is a picture of the knights from Mr. Fechner, I mentioned in Snagys post.

@Christoph,  I do not want to crash your thread,
but you have the right headline.

Hello,
lockdown again I painted some more figures.

The first is a newly edited knight by Mr. Mineur.




The next one is a mounted crossbowman also from Mr. Mineur. I did some changes by using "green stuff". The original figure can be seen on the rigth. I changed the helmet into a sallet and reworked the shoulders.

Hallo Christoph,
Good attempt, but still insufficient for the following reasons, I think:
a) The spot lights are not white but light blue, still to reflect shining
b) The blue of the coat and the blue you use for the metal, are the same, keeping confusion between metal and clothes, and coat of arms : shey should better be distinct (like a cobalt blue for clothes for example)
c) the large blue coat worn by the knight over the armour has borders white, therefore looking like shiny, which confuses with metal. They should better be light blue and metal shiny pure white = metal have a colour different from clothing


I tried to adjust my thoughts in a drawing (increasing file size to do, then reducing back to smaller size), only to illustrate my comments.





But is was only a suggestion, don't feel committed to go further as I would myself.

Hello,
I tried, but it looks like I didn´t get this right in my painting light.
Maybe this one is a bit better.

as usual, wonderful painting, clean, very readible with the lining, clear, recognizable.


One suggestion perhaps ?: to distinguish the grey clothes from the metallic armour, you could apply some lightspots at brighest points of the metal ?
example below as attempt ....
