George Talbot, 4th Earl of Shrewsbury.





Further to the previous post here's the finished piece.

Talbot was a lietenant-general in 1513 and commanded the 12'000 troops which comprised the foreward during the French campaign. He had previously fought for Henry VII at the battle of Stoke in 1487 and was made Knight of the Garter in 1488.

I've also taken this opportunity to experiment with some silflor basing materials which have been waiting to be used for the last few weeks, I thoroughly reccomend them!

Stuart.

  2. Wow Stuart, those are great. They are really convincing and the details are well worth all the time you've clearly put into handpainting the flags etc. A wonderful command group, which is where you really want to have your most stunning figures.
    Thanks for the wallpaper design tip on last entry, as I'm putting off painting'cloth of gold' patterns on Perry WotR figures wearing coats ovr armour.
    Going to be a lovely army - then you'll have to do the French!
