Henry VII´s Cavalry

I´ve pulled my finger out and got the whole set finished ...one, to get them of the worktop and two a busy weekend is coming up. Firstly on Saturday Heiden and then Sunday, another new event,  the biggest indoor toys and games fleamarket in our state.
The bases still need a bit of attention, a couple of bunches of flowers from Noch and some  tufts of grass. 
The heavy cavalry section
The medium cavalry. The crossbows supplied were a wee bit small so I´ve used ones from the Zvezda French knights set.
The Royal Tudor flag .  All I did was to resize it ( 2.1cm tall) copy, hit the space bar twice and insert the image again. Wether the white along the flag pole is correct...but it looks fine to me :-D

Henry VII´s Standard. I´ll be getting the Set again..so I can make up a command group and include Henry and some personalities. Might even get around to painting up some landsknechts from DDS...and then of course they will need to have a Landsknecht pikeblock...and a cannon or two :-D
 
Hello to Vonplutz from Þorsteinn á Heiðini blog. In his own words "A blog on miniature war gaming, modelling, painting and things medieval". Good man :-D

      Some of the unarmoured horses are repeated, there´s 3 pairs of them but every bod has a different pose.

  10. Hi Paul, I have a Guidon from the 502 Infantry which has a white linen header, although I'm not sure it's called a header when the pole runs through it? Mum had a Royal Standard with a similar 'header' which was hollow for a pole...hung above the stairs in our childhood home! So seems very correct!

  12. Great work Paul, they look excellent. Check out the Flodden flags on my site, you should be able to use some of them for these figures.

  15. once again paul you impress me with your skills, I might just have to resort to good wok paul because your work is at such a higher standard that it's pointless to try and say how good it is.

  16. Lovely set, Paul. And I appreciate the tip for the flags as I never did know what to do with only one side of an image.

    1. Thanks Monty.
      With some you might have to make a mirror image but this is easy with Word.
      Cheers

  19. I had a look at PSR to see whit what you started. And after seeing them there I understand why you didn't paint them directly!

    Excellent painted unit Paul!
