The unit was made from the European Men at Arms plastics from the Perry Twins with some Citadel Empire Militia heads added in 2 cases.

Although this type of armour would not have included a shield, this being Warhammer we add one.  The shield is great for giving the unit some visual punch which is important for showy troops like knights.  I have left the barding off these knights as I expect that would be the first thing you would sell if you were a knight down on his luck.

I went for an Ultramarines Blue and white (over Elf Gray) colour scheme as I wanted forgiving colours to paint that stand out on a green tabletop.  I have kept the colour scheme very tight as I wanted to blend miniature designs from 2 different sources.  As it turns out the 2 sources play very nicely together in terms of scale.  Both models have integrated bases so they both ended up standing at approximately the same levels as illustrated below.
