This week I finished off the last six French mounted Men at Arms from the box of Perry Miniatures Agincourt Knights. I'm not usually somebody who enjoys painting cavalry but these have been a delight to get done.
The standard is Comte d’Alencon from Battle Flag and is carried by a mounted sergeant made up from one of the lighter bodies in the set.
Of these last six I used three of the lighter armed bodies in hauberks and aketons, as I mentioned before if you buy a box of the figures directly from the Perry's it makes a lot of sense to buy the extra medieval horses as you shall get 18 figures out of the box rather than six.
Here are some individual close-ups, the first being a mounted sergeant in the livery of the city of Rouen.
The second is a mounted sergeant carrying the standard of the Comte d’Alencon.
Finally, a mounted man at arms in white armour with arms azure a chevron or. A design from my own imagination, there were about 16000 French men at arms at Agincourt, somebody must have had this.
I thought that as I had completed all the Agincourt Knights that I bought this would be a good place to show a group shot of all 18.
With six 28mm mounted troops and one standard this should be worth 61 points towards my total and also contribute to the Hither do I Challenge Thee (SD4) duel.
And your usual Friday entry, to your usual excellent standard! As was said last week, the armor of Agincourt falls in a weird spot for me, but you make it look very splendid. You've absolutely captured the feel of cavalry in motion with these fellows.
Exquisite work there, Paul!
61 points go n the book.
