Harondor ambush by Merlkir Harondor ambush by Merlkir
Something I've been working on for quite a while. Many hours spent. I've been learning patience on this one. If I find something to adjust, I'll upload a fixed version. But I have to take a break from this.

-----------------

"A southern Gondorian noble is ambushed by a Harondor (north Haradrim) raiding party.
To the left is a Karka cavalryman - Karka is probably a name derived from Carca in Quenya and it means "fang". Young warriors trying to prove themselves join the light Karka cavalry to serve as scouts and raiders. To the right is an officer of a heavy infantry regiment. Archer from the same regiment is hesitant to take a shot as he might hit his friends."

 If this knight of Dol Amroth is half so formidable as his prince, one can only suspect that his thoughts on this little affray can be summed up as "Only THREE of them? Haradrim ambushes just aren't what they used to be!"

This looks like a plate for an imaginary Osprey book. Good job on all the detail work. :) (Smile)

good one, an Osprey material! One comment on the horses eyes - they roll their eyes away from something or someone moving menacingly in their direction - so your 'palomino' would look away in fear, terror or just roll them in rage :) Some horse anatomy mistakes, but overall a great piece

Oh, I didn't know about the eye thing! That's useful. And boy oh boy, this one was done long ago :D Can't look at it almost.

well, with horses you got to look at their photos a bit (or go to the stables), like you do at people's faces so to speak, but since they are the prey animals they behave differently than us, humans, they look away from danger and flee, flee .. even if only mentally :)
