St Crispins Day

The 595th anniversary of the battle of Agincourt would seem to be sufficient excuse to post some pictures of my English army in it's current near-completed state. The photos were taken in a bit of a rush and had to be done indoors, so never as good with flash as with natural light.

As readers of previous posts will know, nearly all the figures are Perrys AO range, with some Citadel older Brettonian range sneeked in for added variety of poses. When I've lined the figures up like this on my table, for the first time, they don't seem to be as numerous as I'd thought (although I'm more than happy with the quality). If I manage to create a little more spare time, I'm minded to add a couple more men-at-arms bases, using up odd figures that I still have, probably as generic ones that I can use as Norman-raised troops (ie unspecific to any English nobleman). I'm also planning to add some archers on skirmish-type bases, as well as command vignettes, baggage and casualties before this army will be deemed as in a state of completion.

I've just received some of the newly released GMB flags for my French, so this should allow me to start basing up some more already painted troops.

That's a very impressive sight, and I can't see it being made of "few" units. Exceptional painting standard, works both in quantity and quality!

Now that has really put a smile on my face mate.

The whole thing looks beautifull.

Almost makes me feel "accursed that" I "was not" there :O)

A most fitting tribute, and an excellent looking one at that.Photography is fine, I think it might be a while before you can get outside to do some! Is that a spare room or a room specifically for painting and gaming?
