Tudor billmen with livery banner
After a few busy weeks I have managed to settle down to finish another stand of bill with a livery banner from the sheets of flags I recently put together. I'm quite pleased with it as it works particularly well with the livery coats that some of the soldiers are wearing.
Just for a treat here's the stand alongside the rest of the infantry I have painted so far. I'm slowly getting quite a decent host to worry many a frenchman!
This particular banner is fairly simple but effective I think, it is taken from a painting of Henry VIII's embarkation from Dover.
I'm currently working on some cavalry; another commander from the 1513 campaign, more on this soon.
On that subject, I received a very exciting email today from Eureka miniatures advising that their 100 club light cavalry / archers are almost ready. I've ordered 15 which is around £100 worth after import VAT and a clearance fee are taken into account but well worth it and great news for my Tudor army list; i'll use them as English demi-lancers.
