    Where did you get the Yellow/Black heraldry for the Florentine knight? Florence's coat of arms is usually red/gray or red/white and has no rooster. Just curious for modding sake.

    I guess by the time I labelled him, I had forgotten what I'd read. Well, it's Tuscany, anyway, Chianti province.

    EDIT: Now, I've got to rename everything. :p

    EDIT #2: I don't know if Chianti could historically field many knights, especially where their black rooster story seems to say, "Hooray! Our 3 villages were subjugated by Florence instead of Siena!" But apparently the modern winemaking concerns have the wherewithal nowadays to send someone to the Saracen Jousts.

    Anyway, I've always intended to come back and make some more knights for Italy...

    Its the reverse- the rooster woke up the defenders of the Chinati region one morning intime to defend from a Florintine attack, and enabled the region to be under the control of Sienna - which the region is in the vacinity of Sienna, not Florence, so the reason they are so happy is because they continued to be under local control, and had a bigger say in self governance. A Florentine victory would have been subjugation, in this context.

    A true Roman knight would probably be along the lines of a Cataphract anyway, IMO...

    You seem to be talking about a slightly different legend than the one I came across, where they determine where the boundary lines are by heading out from their respective cities when the cock crows, and meeting in the middle. The Florentines used a half-starved black rooster who crowed before the sun came up, so they got most of Chianti by getting an early start.

    Can't argue that point. Different era, but roughly comparable. I can't just do a simple reskin in that case, however.

    You just had to click the download link for screenshots, but fine, I added the screenies to the post. :p

    EDIT: I think, again, I've been sloppy in trying to figure out where these Saracen jousters are from. Whatever, it's definitely Tuscany. And though I've seen shields divided lengthwise for Siena, the official coat of arms is divided horizontally.

    I heard mine while in the region of Chianti, so I'm a bit partial to it! :D

    Luir and I are working on an all new GoT mod. He is redoing the artwork for the sigils. If you need that for your work let me know and I can send it. I know he would love to have a set of knights with the correct sigils. Let me know what you may need in any case. If you have time and want to do it. That would be awesome and we both thank you. If you don't have time there is no rush.

    Nutty I'll get back to you at some point coming up. We are going to make a grand scenario and could use the knights then.
