1 plastic figure from the perry´s and one from Claymore casttings. The Perry´s nothing to say nice figures, very good rep. Claymore castings.....wow. their range is incomplete but work is progressing well I think. They are early hyw but should not be a problem for most of the figures and they are stunning. Different facial expressions on each miniature casting totally crisp and the detail even better than perry miniatures and so much ahead of front rank.
Well actually it was the 2 banners I wanted to show. Both made of lead French foil from a good bottle of French wine, not around Peronne I am afraid but never the less. I actually just attached the little men big Studio transfers used for the pavisses. and painted the rest of the
flag. Hmmm that did not quite work since the edges clearly showed. Of to work again with paint in multible layers and last lots of streaks to camouflage the transfer edges. Think it turned out all right and one needs to get really close to spot them now. The Dunkirk militia coming next, just waiting for the spears to arrive. Happy new year to all of you,

The famous general Earl of Salisbury. The most distinguished English commander produced during the 100 years war, after Henry V. First commander after king Henry to be a gunnery expert. Liked and trusted by his men. Fought most of his life as an soldier in France under the Duke of Bedford the French regent from 1422-1428.

Edward of Norwich or better known as Duke of York during the campaign in 1415 which eventually was to cost the duke his life. His head smashed in with ...maybe a French warhammer. The highest ranking Englishman to loose his life in that battle. The base is the standard(for my army) 60mmx40mm, which all my known knights are placed on. Repainted part of the banner, since it was the one bought for Henry v, and a small conversion to the squire holding the shield so it showed Edwards heraldry.

The awesome set from warlord. Have to say I really enjoyed panting the boxed set. The figures were all crisp and very well sculpted. As said ealier some might find a couple of the models like the leader below a little to heroic but for "test of honour" games I find that he fit absolutely fine he might not be allowed to join my perry samurai army though. Have a look in the "test of honour" page to see the rest of the gang.

Mounted Henry V. Yes we all know he fought dismounted at Agincourt and this horse the Perry brothers chose to sculpt is probably not his warhorse but the one he rode when he addressed his men before the famous battle. Well anyway I choose to paint it the way I remembered it described in some sources...The knights all wear white armour without barding. Noticed right now the lances needed to straighten.I just when for an knight/man at arms for Henry´s banner allthought Sir John Codrington is depicted on the Osprey book cover......well many history sources say that that is quite uncertain. If anyone found other sources pls. tell me : )
