Hundred Years War: French(2)



Another batch of Perry Miniatures mounted Men at Arms completed this week. Half of them also fall under the auspices of the Analogue Hobbies Painting Challenge, so that is a bonus - although I had planned to get them finished before the challenge started but real life got in the way!


 You'll note on this set that I added pennants to the lances, these are just note paper stuck with PVA glue and then given another coat of PVA to strengthen them. I rather like the effect and may have to retro-fit some to the last batch that I painted.

 Here are some close-ups of the individual figures.


This one is one of the entries in the Analogue Hobbies Paint Challenge, a light bay (buckskin) horse with a white and blue livery with three crosses added as heraldry.



A man at arms in 'white armour' on a dark chestnut. I'm not to happy with the spacing of the bands on the lance, I tried to correct it with black bands but now it looks like a stiffened coral snake. Another one of the AHPC entries.



The last entry in the AHPC, red and green livery on a black stallion. Three fleur-de-lys as heraldry on the red.



A very nice armoured horse on this figure, again white armour with no jupon for heraldry, so a cross on his deep red pennant.



This chap is in old style armour on a black horse, his jupon and pennant are in a nice light blue and gold livery, quite like the effect on this one.



The final figure, on a light bay horse, this time the pennant is replaced with a small flag


Technically painted last year and included in the 2018 Challenge so not on this years totals!
