Feudal Guard Inspiration

Here are some pictures I saved for inspiration while researching paint schemes for the Raumsknechts. I painted one in the particolour style of the fifth picture as a test, but it didn’t look good and was too time consuming, so I settled on an empire style red and yellow scheme for the squad. Later I want to paint each of their armour with a unique heraldic scheme representing their noble family, to reintroduce some variety into the painting, as well as adding chipped paint effects to their brightly painted armour.
