15mm Burgundian. Charles the Bold Re flag

I have returned to this unit as i was not happy with the  mirliton lances which were bending and snapping of at the littlest touch so i have removed all of them and replaced them with steel spears and added some printed long tailed flags amongst the original square banners which were also removed and had the poles cut shorter.

The original set up, as you can see a number of riders are already missing there lances(Totally broken)!


After replacement. Hope this is of significance to anyone thinking of painting any of these in the future, the figures themselves are terrific, probably the best 15mm late medieval cavalry around only let down by the soft delicate lances that are supplied with them!

  3. Super class - the absolute best figure 15 bb in the fifteenth century on par with the Legio Heroica.
