French Knights for Crecy.
My contribution to The Bodkins Crecy demo game, at The Other Partizan next Sunday, is relatively modest compared to the other players. I have bulked out some very old mounted French knights which I did about 20 years ago with some additional bases.
These are mainly Foundry riders on Front Rank mounts, which with a little bit of judicious cutting and filing, seem to fit Ok despite the horses being big sculpts. The horses are nice active poses and so create the sense of movement of charging French nobility needed for the game - plus they also fit those that David Imrie and Matt Bickley have done.
If you're going to the show, please do come along and say 'hi', it's always great to meet blog followers.
I will take photos and do a posting about the game.

A splendid contribution, a shame Newark is a bit too far away. I would like to see the game.
Just amazing...too far away from France, but enjoy!
Utterly fantastic display of medieval splendour and heraldry Simon, top notch paint work and basing!
Top quality painting, well done.
That's an awful lot of complex painting on display. Well done. One of the advantages to my earlier Lewes project is in my mid-thirteenth century period the heraldry is simpler. I think you've got the most complex in this period. Keep the faith and soldier on - we are all loving this.
Excellent work Simon :-)
Lovely work, really nice job on all that heraldry!
I'm in SHOCK! I take off my hat ... with my head !!!
I saw your game at The Other Partizan - had a quick chat with one of you. The figures were simply stunning. Great work and thank you for sharing it.
Fantastically entertaining display. Love the hapless Genoese crossbowman being ridden over. Looks like that Frenchie is going to take a swipe at him. Five of the front line of men-at-arms are down or going down in various poses of distress. Not only is this a clever approach to a topic-specific project, the painting is really, really good.
You could definitely see your expertise in the work you write. The world hopes for more passionate writers like you who are not afraid to say how they believe. Always follow your heart. confederate soldier lookup
