A tale of two heralds

My Christmas present to myself, as a contribution to this project, was to purchase a really beautifully painted herald. The model is done by Steve Dean, who is a pro-painter, and was obtained via e-bay. I had already painted the same figure, from the Perrys' Henry V command pack, so I've put the two aside each other here. Both will be used, behind the battlelines in respective armies, striding admist the encampmants. Steve has achieved some lovely yellow shades on the herald's houppelande and the horse appears to be done in oils, with the 'paint and wipe' method, whereas I've built up the colours. I will need to rebase him (and complete the basing on mine) to fit in with my stuff, which will need to be a gently-does-it operation.
