Some more 21st century upgrades to add to the mix. First up, this customized Battle Standard Bearer. This happy fellow is a heavily modified Grail Knight local Sculptor Jason Wiebe did for me back in the mid-90s. Jason's does a lot of excellent minis for Reaper, and I snap up some of his sculpts from time to time when I see them in local stores. (Someday I am going to finish that Owlbear...) The attention to detail on this mini is great. I like the little things like the Mail Coif pulled back from his head. The horse in the one that GW did for their not-Joan-of-arc Repanse of Leonesse.
The next six figs are a mix of Metal and Plastic Knights of the Realm from the 4th edition re-release of the Bretonnian Army (When they changed from medieval Bretons/French to High Middle Age Arthurian types) I originally had two units of six minis each with a focus on Blues/Whites for one unit and Red/White for the other. These guys are tricked out lance pennants and old school GW decals. I have updated a few, but am finding it hard to separate many decals from their backing 20+ years later.

|Unit Champion. Still looking for the shied.|
|I wanted to add more decals to the horse, but the ones that match the shield will separate after a long soak in warm water.|
|Six Knights in Lance formation. Note I have once again misplaced a shield. All the worse that it is visible in the shot above!|
|Three knights from the back row including two with embossed shields that made life easier.|
