John Tuchet, 8th Baron Audeley
Well it's August 2013, we're almost at the 500th anniversary of the Battle of the Spurs and my 4 year Army Royal project has drawn to a spiritual conclusion, 100'000 hits and counting, it's been great.
If you're interested, this week in the 1513 times Henry was mainly exchanging politely offensive diplomatic letters with James IV, dining with Maximilian and issuing pay to his men.
I'm (very) slowly working upon some French pike, playing around with flag designs and army listings and assembling plastics for the first of the French foes to the Army Royal - the garrison of Therouanne.
So for a bit of fun, I thought i'd select a few units of particular note for me and ask you to vote for your favourite. This has also highlighted how my photography has improved over the last 4 years but don't let poor pictures put you off, use the voting buttons and lets see which unit has been your favourite.
If I remember.....i'll call the results on August 16, the anniversary of the Battle of the Spurs.
John Blanke - 'the blacke trumpeter'
Charles Somerset, 1st Earl of Worcester
Yeomen of the Guard
Sir Henry Willoughby
The Kings Spears
George Talbot, 4th Earl of Shrewsbury
As i've mentioned before this project isn't quite finished but i'm almost there! still to come are a few marching units as well as some artillery and burgundians but i'm probably going to concentrate on the French for a while.
The Wargames Illustrated article which will feature the army is due for publishing in the October issue so keep your eyes peeled for some very nice photographs.
All the best
