Hi everyone, not really a Bretonnian player, but I do have a set of Grail Knights that are currently slated as being used as "Black Grail" knights, with KoBK rules. However, I was also considering that they could be painted up as the Kights of the Round ball meaning football (or soccer for those of you who think football is played by throwing a prolate spheroid)...
Now given the rich heritage of European Football teams and teh elaborate cotas of arms many of them have, can ayone help me decide which teams to copy as Knightly schemes?
Manchester United are a must - they can use the old coat of arms without the devil on them. Similarly, Manchetser City are a good chocie, with a similar coat of arms, with a ship (the coat of arms of Manchester).
Now how about other teams? i can't really bring in Arsenal, as their arms are a cannon, and Bretonnians don't really like cannonry.
Liverpool I could do, and Middlesborough is easy, but possibly the colour schemes of both are too similar to Manchester United (unless I go back to the white/green scheme of Liverpool's away kit). Though I dislike Chelsea, their Lion badge is a nice one to work with, and the colour is very different
Now I'm open to other suggestions - Real Madrid for example are a bit too complex in the badge and Juventus have a very abstract design which is only shapes rather than a heraldic design.
Can anyone help me please?
Are you looking for one side to choose as the main heraldry...cause then you have to do Liverpool....or we shall be enemies
If you want to do each knight w/ a different club...lots of choices
Aston Villa's l. blue and red w/ Lion Rampant
Blackburn.. blue and white w/ the Rose
Everton .. blue and white tower w/ wreaths
Newcastle.. black and white w/ Horses rampant
Sunderland .. red and white w/ a really cool coat of arms
West Ham.. blue and red w/ the castle
Def not Arsenal......Brets can't have cannons all over them
The rival scottish sides... Blue/Red Lion rampant Rangers, and White/Green Clover Celtic
Barca has a three sectioned coat of arms which could all be easily painted and would look good.
Valencia's red/yellow stripes w/ the bat is cool...little evil maybe
Osasuna has a cool red/blue w/ a lion and a crown logo that I remember looking cool
AC Milan has a black/red vert stripe on one side and a genoese cross on the other.
Genoa CFC has a triple shield design and a griffon ... also cool
Juvi w/ the black and white and bull wouldn't be too bad
Bolognia has halves.. blue and red vert stripes, other side yellow outlined red cross on white...
There are tons of good options for clubs...
Good luck....not gonna lie...I kind of want to steal your idea and buy a bunch of new knights
Lol - feel free to do so, I think football teams have cool colour schemes and heraldry, and will be agreta challenge to execute properly.
