Richard De la Pole to join the Von Trinkenessen Chronicles
« on: July 22, 2022, 11:48:59 AM »
To the Italian Wars subject matter experts; I am hoping to introduce Richard De la Pole to the Von Trinkenessen Chronicles as a major character in command of some dodgy French and renegade landsknechts.
What I need is advise as to his flag?
What figure would you recommend in 28mm for him?
Thanks in advance

I had similar thoughts a while ago and came up with these ideas https://leadadventureforum.com/index.php?topic=120954.msg1517168#msg1517168

what is this Von Trinkenessen Chronicles you speak of?
"Peace" is that brief, glorious moment in history when everybody stands around reloading.

Sorry about the delay in getting back to you, just had to trek across to the other side of the country for eldest son's university graduation.
The VTC is what you do when GW drops Warhammer Fantasy ,replacing it with a different system leaving you with shed loads of renaissance and renaissance fantasy figures. So rather than rebuild and play Warhammer 1K. I decided to go down the route of using these figures for a Renaissance fantasy set against the backdrop of the Italian Wars. We have replaced magic with science as science is the magicof the renaissance.
After looking around for a set of warGAME rules not a simulation I came across: Condottiere by Frank Chadwick sold by Foundry.
They have their faults , it was definately Frank on a Friday afternoon or very poor editing , errors, omissions and enough holes to charge a unit of Gendarmes through, just what I was looking for . My sons love the fate deck and have great fun in thwarting dad's grand plan by zapping me with one of the cards.
So in essence it's more Da Vinci's Demons than George Gush ( whose rules inspired me in my 20's).

It is set in around the early 1520s it's pre Pavia , we have both fictitious and historical characters mixed in , although we play fast and loose with the historicals as some should really be long dead by then.

Oh that is very cool and sound interesting. And don't worry. I just completed a move from the west coast of the US to the east coast. So I feel your pain.

Would relish reading some after action reports or campaign background pieces, if you have them.  Sounds great fun.

Some variation applicable to a seventh son of the 2nd Earl of Suffolk, which has the royal arms quartered with family motifs (lion's heads and angel's wings etc). I am not sure, but presumably Richard had not renounced his claim as Yorkist pretender before Pavia, which was why he was in exile. Ironically, the seventh son in heraldic cadency would normally be represented by a red rose - as the House of Lancaster, of course.
