I think it's the same knight here. The cover in the center is a new find.

I have the Chadwick one, it's also the best cover.
Into battle we ride with Gods by our side
We are strong and not afraid to die
We have an urge to kill and our lust for blood has to be fulfilled
WE´LL FIGHT TILL THE END! And send our enemies straight to Hell!
- "Into Battle"

Interest in HF: started in childhood with the classics, which, IMHO are HF even if they were contemporary when written.
Favourite HF book: Prince of Foxes, by Samuel Shellabarger
Preferred HF: Currently prefer 1600 and earlier, but I'll read anything that keeps me turning the page.

I recognize the backdrop of The Wicked Proposition
That arch is in the Tower of the Captive in the Alhambra. It's been photographed a zillion times.

I've got this one too, I think I prefer it to the new one with the man.

Methinks I need to dig up this stock art for the cover of my next novel, the one about Danae.

Nothing says Mycenaean Greece or golden showers like mock-Elizabethan couture.
