15mm Wars of Roses. Lord Hastings/ Burgundian hand gunners

Lord Hastings retinue completed. That concludes the boys in blue and murry. With no printed flags available i had to paint these myself, easily enough for the square banner types but the long tailed flags are just to difficult at this scale(i tried).  The last photos are Edward IVs Burgundian handgunners, and the flag is one of my left over prints from the 15mm Burgundian army i did a while back.
   I was unsure how to proceed with the Burgundians, i was going to put them in blue and murry livery with burgundian red crosses, and a burgundian flag, then i was going to give them Burgundian livery and white rose with sun in splendour badges, then i was going to give them full Burgundian livery and red cross badge with a Edward IV banner, all with the idea of them displaying some affinity to Edward IV, but in the end i went the safest and most plausable route and painted them straight up Burgundians!

  2. Nice additions. The Burgundian livery looks great. No chance mistaking them in the battlefield.

  4. Those hand painted banners are superb! At least doing the handgunners in Burgundian Livery means that you can use them in your Burgundian force as well.

    1. Thankyou Oli, good idea, although the Legio Heroica are a bit taller and chunkier than peter pigs minis.

  6. More lovely 15mm figures, the hand painted banners look great and I'd say you did the right thing with the handguns.
