|Lannister Knight - a work-in-progress|
|Managed a smooth texture for the golden lion atop the knight's head|
There was a mini-first for me in the painting of the Lannister Knight. Finally after many tries, I achieved my best ever result with metallic gold paint. I have always struggled in getting smooth textures when using metallic gold paint so I was chuffed it turned out better than my previous efforts.

Painting the banner was also rather fun as it allowed me to practice getter smoother transitions between the shadows and highlights, in this case for red cloth. Less time was spent on getting a smooth paint transition on the shield as most of it will be covered by the House Lannister heraldry.

Once all the freehand heraldry has been painted, all that is left to be done would be to glue the separate pieces of the knight together and onto the already finished warhorse.
