These are not long out of the box but I thought I'd give a glimpse of my plans and early stages of preparation; to the left and centre we have a couple of border horsemen to complement those I already have. I'm toying with the idea of including an armoured knight in blackened harness to lead them as I have recently found that the border horse for the 1513 campaign were led by Sir John Neville, so all being well with a bit more research this will serve as pointer for a decent standard as well as commander.
That is if I can find it, a swallow tail would be perfect but coat of arms will have to do if I can't - please do email me if you have any pointers or images on this. Curiously Neville was under the captaincy of Sir Henry Algernon Percy, Earl of Northumberland (to whom I already have represented in the Army) so this single unit will represent two of the most powerful Northern houses. I know there was rivalry between these during the WOTR but by all accounts the border horse arguably saw the most action of this campaign and performed very well.
On the top right is a figure representing a demilancer, aside from the Kings spears these were the bulk of the English cavalry and this shall be reflected in my army when I have them painted.
when i have them painted.......
On an unrelated note my postings may be somewhat sporadic over the coming months as my wife is expecting our first child, due in September, my current painting project is a nursery and though it's very nice it's not quite the same.
So, you'll have to bear with me (no pun intended!) for a little while as I get used to this forthcoming period of adjustment, though I do plan to get a few units done before sleep becomes a distant memory.
All the best
