Beautiful painting! They will look superb on the tabletop, especially with that impressive standard. I am not an expert on the Period - were they really that large?

I guess so :)
All the banners and flag sheets for 28mm figures from a range of different manufacturers seem to be sized like this. This large, swallowtail job is the personal standard of the lord concerned, with his full livery emblazoned. Companies of men in his pay or under his command would have used smaller, square flags, bearing just his principal motif on his house colours.

A couple more mini modelling / kitbashing projects for NMTBH underway...

First, a model to represent the 'hidden ditch' special event... It's obviously not all that hidden really, but I'm going for the look of the Cock Beck after Towton, choked with unfortunate Lancastrians...









Next, to complement my battlefield casualty 'Daunted' markers, I thought I'd do a couple for mounted companies...
'Chiswick, fresh horses!!!' ;)

Wow, you are coming to a point of modelling the Perrys never expected with their plastics. Did they know, what wonderful level you reached, moi capitan? Wonderful and really not seen before. Go on an I beg at the Perrys for ECW-Plastics.

I guess that a natural accidents in the terrain doesn’t need to be that formidable to turn the table on what was very physical fights…

Is that filler with sand that you have used to create the ditch Richard or the acrylic medium basing stuff?

Thanks Darrell. It’s just a rolled snake of Green Stuff, with a generous helping of my usual ‘gloop’ on top (a mix of sand, PVA, emulsion, and a bit of fine model railway grit).

Cheers Richard. I'm always trying top glean as much as I can re: terrain making and who knows, one day I might actually build up the courage to do it!  :o

Pretty cool stuff, Richard.

Not being familiar with the rules... what happens with the "hidden ditch" event?

A guess: A ditch opens up and everyone in it dies. Kinda like a black hole, but obviously not as big.  ;)

It appears to just pop up! It's actually an event card (you had probably guessed as much), the idea being that it just wasn't visible from the enemies starting position.

Understood. My question being more of what impact does it play on the game? I'm guessing that crossing it can disorder troops, but who knows... maybe everyone with a 12 inch radius dies!  ;)

It just acts as a barrier. If you watch the sample  game Wargames Illustrated game featuring Steve and Andy you will see that it blocked a cavalry charge from hitting a unit to which they would, dice willing, have dealt out death and misery :)
