This time I invite you to a short post about the Grail Knights, who are one of my favorite models in the Bretonnian army for the Warhammer Fantasy Battles system. I intended to paint them for a long time, but only recently I was able to do it. Why? First of all, it is difficult to buy them now and that is why it took me some time to complete the whole unit. Secondly, due to the high prices of metal versions, I decided to buy Finecast, which required me to do some work in sealing holes and deficiencies. I chose to do some conversions, among other things I changed their poses and converted the unit standard. Each of the knights also has hand-painted heraldry on the mount's caparisons. Thirdly, they were painted only now because I played Field Trebuchet so far. I just like to shoot and it works out well, but my love for knights is unwavering, so I will not be tempted by an army with lots of artillery and switch to Empire or Dwarfs forces.
Grail Knights have always reminded me of saints who walk among people. Brave, virtuous, resolute, experienced in battle and steadfast in the face of the greater enemy - these are just some of the qualities and opinions that are attributed to them. They are undoubtedly one of the few warriors in the Old World who are affected by divine grace and power. They are able to inspire simple folks, infuse fearful hearts and strike fear and terror into foes’ minds.
Magical powers and longevity render Bretonnian songs to have numerous references to knights who managed to drink from the Holy Grail and defeat hundreds, if not thousands of enemies. In the social hierarchy, they are considered not only to embody a pure and perfect soul and body but also they are seen as devoted guardians of places dedicated to the Lady of the Lake or advisors at the courts of princes and dukes. Everyone must take into account their opinion, after all, the words spoken by the Grail Knights are the words and will of the Lady of the Lake.
