Andrew Harclay and friends

Another 4 kniggits from the Falkirk roll and additions to the Medieval Lords and Ladies list.
Andrew Harclay, 1st Earl of Carlisle.
He´s already been mentioned here on the Welsh Spearmen post but only his Standard was shown. Seeing as he´s quite an Important Person of the period he deserves a bod to represent him.
His Nag is from The English Cavalry of Edward I    I covered the chainmail effect on the caparison with a layer of second glue to create a more or less flat Cloth like Surface, as done HERE
The bod is from the Scottish Army of Wallace set.
John de Moels. Argent two bars gules and in Chief three torteaux
Kings Battalion
I´m not so sure about the Pithhelmet on top of his great helm. I haven´t found any contemporary examples so far,  although I´m pretty sure I´ve seen a painting from around the 14th Cent with a kniggit wearing something similar.
Richard Siward. Sable a cross flory argent
Kings Battalion
Amenieu de la Brette. This one was easy.... Gules.
Kings Battalion
Two from the original Bannockburn Project, William Marshall and Thomas Ercedekne.
I painted them but in the rush to get the Project finished before the anniversary I didn´t take any individual pics or just pics of their Men-at-arms, so linking them to the "Medieval Lords and Ladies" post was proving impossible. 
The Caparison on William´s Nag is scratchmade like THIS
This site is good, Aspilogia.
Along with other rolls it Shows The Great, Parliamentary, or Bannerets' Roll, c. 1312  It alone contains 1110 Coats-of-Arms!!!!!
The site itself has over 2000 C.o.A´s, some repeated in the various Rolls but it´s a heck of a resource

  1. Very nice indeed. The pith helmet made me do a double take, but it certainly makes sense.
