This is an old 90mm figurine from Andrea Miniatures that portraits “Edward the Black Prince” (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Edward_the_Black_Prince)
The surcoat has a nice heraldry (fleur de lis) bass-relief, so they are easier to paint. As there is a wide surface area which is metallic, I decided to leverage on the real metal and painted the lights/shadows using the oil colours.
The white band around the waist is a bit controversial, as I have not been able to find any illustration about it in the historical sources, but removing it would have been a nightmare, so I kept it.
