Centaur Cavalier by BenWootten Centaur Cavalier by BenWootten
Centaurs in full plate, carrying lances and two-handed swords, better heavy cavalry you will be hard pressed to find.


This is a piece for the up coming release by Paizo Publishing, Advanced Race Guide for the Pathfinder setting. Thanks to Sarah for her great ADing, this was a great project to work on.

This is actually one of the coolest centaurs I've ever seen o: I love the movement in it, and the armor looks stunning : D Wish I knew how to paint like this!
I feel like he'd be a good knight to have around! :D

I love it. This is how centaurs should dress when they go to war. Heck, this guy is even better armed than the Narnian centaurs.

This is how I wanted the Narnia centaurs to look, even did some designs to this effect but no such luck. Although the centaur archers with longbows was pretty scary, just a pity they didn't take advantage of their mobility in the film.

No worries. What you as a team did on that film was inspiring to me. LWW has gone on to become one of my favorite movie and the work that each of you did as a team at Weta, whether it was LOTR, Narnia, or Kong, has gone on to influence me in my own films. You showed a whole new generation things that they would never gotten the chance to see otherwise and we couldn't be more grateful. Well done.

I see I wasn't the only one who sat down at one point in time and pondered why all Centuars displayed in a majority of fantasy universes were so lacking in armor, safe to say: You did Tremendously better in making it a reality than I, the details are gorgous, the lighting and shading creates more life into the pic along with the overall pose, the dust rising from the ground from the trembling of hooves and the Armor itself is fantastic.
I also adore the thoughtfulness of you, adding a satchel for items along with alternative weapons incase primary ones sunder, You've made my day mate, Thank you for crafting this picture and thank whatever life you've had to attain such marvelous skills!
