Medieval English Standard Bearers..Crecy

Two not so commonly used standards (I haven´t seen them among many wargames armies)from the battle of Crecy 1346, taken from the excellent site Dansk Figursspilsforening .
The flags are of Sir John de Botetourt and Thomas de Hatfield, Bishop of Durham
Both bods are from the Zvezda English knights of the 100 yrs war set, the one with the Thomas Hatfield standard is a conversion using one of the foot, his nag is from the Zvezda French Knights set.
The Zvezda horses are among the best horse sculpts in 1/72nd..real fun to paint.
To those who still have the captcha thingy on...please get rid of it and put either the moderation mode on or just allow the post to be posted without a captcha.
1. About 60% of the captchas are  impossible to read and it takes at least a couple of re-loads  or 2-3 failed attempts to post a message. It never did and never will stop the determined human spammers getting thier adverts or dumb comments posted.
2. Even with captchas, tossers going under the name of Anonymous can post thier trashy cowardly little messages or adverts on long "forgotton" posts and the job of removing them (as your blog gets bigger) becomes virtually impossible. With the moderation mode on, you get to see where and what these filth are posting and remove it :-D
