Knight Centauress by gamera1985 Knight Centauress by gamera1985
A knight Centauress: the perfect mix between the horse and the knight!

I like how proud she looks... so beware of her spear!
She doesn't wear a full armor, because it would have been very heavy and too tiring for her to wear.

Love the proportions on this. People usually make the horse half to big, so much wasted space.

Could have given her padded barding (horse armor) for some protection.  And she doesn't have any helmet of any kind?  You did a good job in presenting this piece.  If my half-elf ranger was about she would accompany this lady anywhere when a good companion is needed.

a mix of both, but rather a spear in its use

Centaurs can be cool too! Gives me a Shining Force vibe, because that was the only game I've played where it feels cool to play them =P

It's a buckler.

a small shield is often used to deflect: so it's lighter and permit more movement while providing defence

Yes but smaller shields won't help in an arrow barrage

They're not always supposed to. Buckler shields are used for blocking melee attacks, and are small to help with mobility. In this case, it probably should have been bigger, but small shields had their place.

Considering how many people have said it, I doubt I have to mention that it reminds me of Sega's Shining Force series, where if you got a "Knight" or a "Paladin", that person was always a centaur.

In fact, the Shining Force world seems rather bereft of humans. You get less than 5 in the party (which consists of 40 or so characters, of which you can only use 12 including the main hero).

Wow, I can't believe that no-one else thought of fusing a horse and a knight, they look so perfect as a centaur. Great job on the armour and weapons, too.

That's some very nice work! I've never played Shining Force, but with that breastplate and spear, it kinda gives her a "Conquistadora" type look.

Well it and it's sequel were fairly simple, though learning decent tactics helped a lot. As you progressed in the game you gained more and more allies, but you were limited in how many you could take along so you had to choose wisely depending on where you were going. Contrary to your typical heavily armed and armored fighters the centaurs had more mobility than anyone, but you couldn't just have them rush in at full speed without the support of the rest of your guys, so you had to hold them back somewhat until you could get everyone else up. I have actually looked to see if there's an emulator for the PC, I think there was, so I might have to go looking for it again.:)
