Terrain
I have recoloured the fur so that it matches the static grass on the bases.  I have also added about 15 Noch trees.  
I added caulk and sand to the roads and ploughed fields so that I have a better texture.
I also added a second row of stakes.

Bases
I bought 25 6 slot movement trays from Warbases
http://war-bases.co.uk/index.php?route=product/product&path=68_71&product_id=131

Figures
I have added more men at arms to the French and 18 peasants as onlookers.

Next
The project is certainly playable but still is not quite finished.  
I am still not sure how to finish the bases.  
I will wait to see more pictures of the Perry diorama

Re: Mick’s Agincourt project (2nd set of Lion Rampant games Sept 2015)

My friend, David Knight visited us and stayed for a few days.  We visited museums and castles in Grandson, Hallwyl, Lenzburg, Luzern, Murten and the amphitheatre in Avenches.  We visited the battlefields of Grandson (1476), Murten (1476), Morgarten (1315) and Sempach (1386).  

We also found time to play various wargames including Agincourt (1415) , Murten (1476), Villers-Bretonneux (1918) and Mirbat (1972).

Agincourt 1415
We played using Lion Rampant.  The English army list was the same as last time with Thomas.  The French were bolstered with more Men at Arms on foot.  We played twice and in both cases the English won quite easily.  The four units of expert archers dominated the muddy killing ground in front of the English stakes.  In future, I may downgrade them so that two units are normal archers and two are expert.



Regards
Mick

Nice to see another game with your fabulous Agincourt collection! And I'm glad to see the English won again - so it wasn't us being daft  :)

Re: Mick’s Agincourt project (Wagons & Casualties 22nd May 2016)
« Reply #44 on: May 22, 2016, 02:42:53 PM »
I have been thinking about other battles including the Siege of Orleans and the Battle of the Herrings.
Inspired by recent posts on LAF, I decided to scratch build some wagons to match my Perry ones.  
I already have three different Perry metal wagons but they are a little bit too narrow to have fighting crews.

Here are three war wagons which will be used for the Battle of the Herrings an maybe latter for Hussites.  
The crew are plastic Agincourt French.  The wheels are from Front Rank.


Here are 32 French casualty figures for Agincourt.  
Counting up and down from Left to Right, the first 10 are Perry Metals, the next 18 are converted Perry plastic French MAA & Infantry and the last 4 are converted Fireforge Foot Sergeants.


Regards
Mick
