Massed Medieval cavalry (2)

380 mounted medievals* from a wide range of sets, Airfix,  Italeri, Valdemar, Zvezda, Strelets, Caeser, RedBox,  and a wide time line  across the medieval period, Normans, Burgundians, 100 yrs wars, WotR´s etc.
First wave. Normans, Turcopoles, Crusaders/Teutonics. One of the bods (top right Corner, second wave) was tipped over by one of our Cats. This was only noticed after I´d posted the pics.
Second wave. 100yrs war French and English, English WotR´s, Scottish wars of independance Scotts and English
Waiting / Command. 

*Another 50 plus, Magna carter barons, Normans still not based, but they will have to wait as the mounted Fantasy bods are next for basing....it´s too hot to actually paint  anything.

  1. Wow.

    I'd swear there's an Airfix Sheriff of Nottingham knight in the sixth photo, at the bottom, black horse with green barding.

    1. Correct :-) There´s three in that pic..all the bottom left. The sherrif himself, is somewhere in the middle of the second battalion. Another of his men turns up in pic 7.

  2. I was blown away by the massed photo but the close ups are just incredible! The colours and heraldry make for some proper eye candy.

    1. Thanks matey :-) I daren´t think how many hours that went into them. If I´d have stuck the time into overtime or a second job...I´d be rich!!!:-)

  8. Wow! Those are some fun pics! What brought this on? Did you think to yourself “just how many mounted medieval guys do I have anyway?” 😀

    1. Thanks Stew.
      I was asked a while back after I posted the "medieval Lords and ladies" list as to how big my Collection is. Since then I´ve been considering an Audit and posting pics of the Collection but seeing as it fills dozens of storage boxes, any pics of the entire lot in one go would be like a pic of a City taken from several miles up so I´ll have to break the Collection up into themed chunks. Even the medieval cavalry isn´t entirely complete, there´s at least another 50 painted but not based and a few more based I found in other Groups after Clearing the above lot away. If all were included it would be closer to 500.
