Fireforge Games has now released their Western Knights plastic kit for you to dive into. If you're playing the likes of Deus Vult and taking to the battlefields of the Crusades or just clashing in Medieval Europe, these should be a good fit for 28mm battles.

Western Knights - FireForge Games

This set comes with the options to make twelve 28mm multi-part plastic Western Knights atop their barded horses. Across the sprues you've got plenty of options for weapons, shields, heads and accessories.

This sprue above shows off an array of those options. As well as a few different styles of shield you've also got those big lances next to swords, hammer, flails, maces and axes. These Knights then sit happily atop these charging mounts.

Even with their barding and such, these horses are still going to be my nemesis I reckon! At least the way they have been designed you won't be trying to reach into all manner of small places to make sure they are painted!

It's worth taking a peek at some of the example miniatures that have been painted from the set down below. This gives you a good look at some of the schemes you could try out yourself.

Western Knight Example #1 - FireForge Games

I like the Knights themselves and the options that have been designed for them but the horses look a bit odd to me. It might just be the way they've been painted but they look like they have longer faces than normal!

Western Knight Example #2 - FireForge Games

It's neat to see a good mix of options in there for their bodies and helmets though and I like that the horses are posed as if they are charging into battle. Nothing worse than having a cavalry regiment charging into a game looking like they're cantering across a parade ground!

Are you going to be snapping up these Western Knights for your army?
