WiPs - knights and dragons and fires, oh my...

I've been struck down by the Black Death (read: a slight cold) but I'm manfully struggling on with the various items on the workbench. 

First up is the second unit of men at arms, the first for the second retinue. The armour has been shaded and highlighted so no there's just detailing and the livery to do:

Once all this work has set, I'll add a cloak which will finish off making the body look slightly larger. I'll also finish the war hammer - although I'm tempted to texture it as stone just for giggles. 

The last thing I've been doing is the fire pit to finish the 4Ground house; photos of that to follow at the weekend.
