HISTORICAL MINIATURES PHOTOGRAPHY: Sir Kay




This was my first attempt at a stormy sky, and I like the shaft of sun coming down from the heavens. The title "Sir Kay" is of course, not historical, as the idea of Arthur's having "knights" called "Sir" is a much later medieval one, but the central figure holding aloft his spear is sold to romantics like me as "Sir Kay" and so the name sticks. These are Romano-British cavalrymen. In the back-ground are 6mm high Irregular Miniatures cavalry, some at a bit of a slant. Some may argue that these figures should not be portrayed as using lances, but the evidence is not conclusive either way. Arthur's cavalry may have used lances, and so I have them using lances, because that's what I like, and that's what I'm like.
