Hundred Years War: French (11)


Before I went on vacation I had completed these French Pavisiers, but was waiting on the shield transfers from LBMS so that I could finish off the pavises, I really did not fancy trying to free-hand six identical shields.




Arriving back from our vacation in Florida on Tuesday we were able to pick up our post and the transfers were in - bingo! There was a slight problem though, this set is sold as to fit Perry Miniatures French Pavises. Unfortunately it's designed for the pavises provided in the metal range in this pack and this pack, not the plastic pavises that I am using. So this involved a bit of painting to fill in the gaps where they did not reach the ends, also some of the fleur-de-lys are bent around the sides of the shields.


This unit is painted in the half-red, half-brown colours of Lyon and the shield transfers used also represent the arms of the city of Rouen. I have enough transfers left to do units of Pavisiers for Tours, Lyon and Soissons so expect more units in the future.


The angle of the shot above catches almost all the brown and none of the red, making them look a completely different unit to the one in the shot below.



The pavisiers are a nice option to build out of the Agincourt plastics sets.

As usual, everything is a single figure on a 20mm round Renedra and sabotted into a Warbases custom movement tray.

Here are some detail shots of some of the individuals.
