Delving back into the Historical aspect of things for Time Of Legends: Joan Of Arc, we have the mighty warrior, John Talbot in both art form…
Here’s some more background from the folks at Mythic Games about this particular soldier from the period…
“This warlord, nicknamed “the English Achilles”, led glorious battles for nearly forty years. He notably defeated La Hire and Xaintrailles, thanks to his ardour and courage. But he is not the best English tactician, and he also lost some resounding battles like Patay and Castillon.
John Talbot opposed Joan of Arc during the siege of Orleans and the battle of Meung-Sur-Loire. He is always represented with his dog on pictures or statues, and in the game, the dog is with him on the battlefield!”
…and you can see the 15mm model, which looks stunning as always, here.
There has been lots of attention to detail worked into the armour, sword and the face here too bringing the model to life, just like the artwork, which is such a big part of the inspiration going into this game.
I think the hound looks great here too although I think I would have made both figures here a bit darker than they have been presented. Maybe that would mean you lost some of the detail, however, but it’s just personal preference.
What do you think?
