Quincy and Bigod

Nope, not a firm of solicitors but another two of the barons that were present at the signing of the Magna carta.

Saer de Quincy, 1st Earl of Winchester (1155 - 1219)
Interesting thing about this one...the blazon. The one I´ve used is listed on the Magna Carta site, but on the wiki link (HERE) it shows another blazon? The magna Carta site uses a pictorial representation of the Barons blazons designed by Sir Edwin Lutyens. I reckon he would have got it right so I won´t worry any further :-D

Hugh Bigod, 3rd Earl of Norfolk (1182 - 1225) This guy inherited a very nice  house..Framlingham castle!
He bears the Arms of "Bigod Ancient", dropped post-1269 by Roger Bigod, 5th Earl of Norfolk following his inheritance of the office of Marshal of England:
Sir Paul de Bodley (b?-d?)   Lord of Styrow on the Foam and one of the ancesters of Jocelyn de Bodley,  who first discovered the land which has become The Federation of Bodstonia
He, along with several other lords, is in constant dispute with his Neighbor Hugh Jarse


  1. Well done! A very nice work...

  2. Great looking bods again.


  3. Great looking figures and painting.

  4. Faster and more detailed? You are outta control!

    Paul, you are so money and you don't even know it!


  5. Nice figures Paul and well done!

    If you want to know which is correct you can go the TMP, they'll sort you out straight away. Or ask Ray Rousell, there's no one around here with as much knowledge of history as Ray.

  6. Nice Work!!!! those are some great characters, cannot wait to see what happens next!

  7. Loving these Paul, great work on the heraldic devices.

  8. Ah that darstedly Hugh Jarse. He's always kicking up a stink...

  9. Lovely painting and heraldy, Paul. When are we going to see all these medieval bods getting into a battle? It would look splendid to see lots of your bods going at it.
    BTW, it took me ages to figure out that Hugh Jarce was a joke name. I'm rather thick. :)

  10. You've got to love a warrior who wears a swan on his helmet. Fine job, Mr. Bod.

  11. Nice work but I'd have to agree with Jay. The swans the best!

  12. Great painting Paul!

  13. You know that you are a terrific painter Paul, don't you???
