Excellent stuff Charlie and very generous for you to share. I've saved the images as Jpg's and saved the heraldic information to Word.

As I say, very generous of you to share  8)

Thanks for sharing! That's a huge help, especially the Cleves ones, on account of how extremely fiddly they are!

Great work on the flags. I've still yet to do any research for my own Burgundian stuff since I'm still floundering around in my 1400-1429 hundred year wars project but I'll certainly be returning to this thread for more references.

These are looking great! I really love those pieces on heraldry of the period in your blog. Makes it so much easier to choose what historical retinue to make.

Many thanks for your generosity.
Just received my copy of 'Never Mind
the Billhooks Deluxe'  so I am on the
look-out for medievals. French would
be nice.

Thanks alot Charlie. Your deisgns are awesome!
Now i defenatly have to build a late medieval french army aswell :D


i was wondering if you know this little book:
https://www.amazon.co.uk/BURGUNDIAN-ARMY-CHARLES-BOLD-COMPANINES/dp/B003DVZIGY
you probably know it already...

alot of great banners and flags!
But your quality of your flags are much higher anyway.
could you imagine to create these flags from the book in your high quality standart?

The Burgundian Army of Charles the Bold booklet is a Freezywater Publication from the Lance and Longbow Society available (for cheaper) here:
https://lanceandlongbow.com/shopPublications.php

It described the army of Charles the Bold and is from an slightly earlier period than Charlie's fab work.

More works in progress

https://fullharness.blogspot.com/2022/12/more-works-in-progress.html

Just an update before Christmas - the French heavy infantry are nearing completion. The plan is probably to have them in two units of thirty, and I've started the last little batch to bring it up to that number. As I said before, I haven't yet decided how they will be grouped - it might be one 'lighter' and one 'heavier' unit, or they both might be the same mix of lightly and heavily armoured figures.

Here's a few with shouldered weapons I'm rather pleased with, both plastics and metals.



The next three are all converted, to try and get more of the metal figures with weapons angled lower wearing livery jackets. The one on the left has had a new mail shirt and jacket sculpted over his original doublet. The two on the right were originally in poses with weapons shouldered - the new poses are achieved through some replacing their hands and turning their heads to the side.



The next two are from the small Venexia Miniatures range, which to be honest is a bit of a mixed bag. There is one body though that is very useful as a well-armoured infantryman, here are two variants of it with plastic Perry heads. There are a few flaws in the casting, but they can be hidden by careful placement in the unit.



The next three men-at-arms are all from Athena Miniatures, though their polearms are from a variety of different sources.



And finally three plastic Perry men-at-arms, though each of them has a small conversion of some sort. The one on the left had a torso-swap, to get a jacketed body paired with some different legs.



The unit(s) will hopefully be finished sometime around early January!

I don't think I've said this before but the blending of the paint on the armours is excellent Charlie  :-*
