Fantastic Legions' 15th C. Breton Ordonnance Army
« on: September 22, 2021, 05:59:21 AM »
The Breton army expands!  I thought I would start this thread to showcase my ongoing buildup of Breton forces for the mdi-15th century for use in the battles of the late Hundred Years War (say 1428 through 1453) through the Mad War (1485-1488)

Fresh off the painting table is a unit of gendarmes led by Bertrand de Dinan, seigneur de Châteaubriant de Beaumanoir  Although Bertrand de Dinan died in 1444, this unit looks appropriate for several decades after his demise.







More pictures and information on the unit on the blog:

Also, here is a link to a post about the archers I have painted:

Thanks for the compliments everyone.  Up next is a unit of voulgiers and spearmen (or archers with polearms, if you prefer).
