Hello to all,

I am returning to Belgum early August to assemble all painted flat in a frame, and perhaps bring it to England to a member of the BFFS in order to expose the work at Folkestone in September and at Eindhoven in October.
But I need the remaining painting by August 1st latest, as I have several travels during the monh, and I return to Turkey end of August!!!

Please send your completed work ASAP  (Greg, Marko, Henry S, Glen, Mike Goldberg).
If not done yet, I'll send an MP with the shipping adress during my abesence (to Alain Moerman),
because my next return will be ....  a few days before Sèvres, end of November......

We have the other paintings at home or arrived by Alain .....

Thank you568

Interesting enough Michel, before Henry v, the kings of England held large areas of northern France and the town was indeed under the English name of Agincourt. The battle was held in the field of Azincourt, the French name.

The battle was caused because the French had sent tennis balls and Blankets? to Henry (a pretty big insult at the time) so Henry descended on France.
After the Battle, in order for Henry to take full revenge as such, he agreed with the French Commanders that the Battle was to be called The Battle of Azincourt, so the French would always know they had been defeated there!   

There are 3 separate accounts of this held within archives here.

Interesting stuff History. Will make a great write up at the time👍

Super !!!!!!

But 1) the standard bearer of he flag is not Connetable Richmont, whose coat of arms is different. I am not sure of the coat of arm of this knight, perhaps Tugdual de Kermoysan, or a knight dead during Azincourt, called 'Andelot', but rather unknown ...  more searches t be done to identify the character. he coat of arm of the character is difficult to identify, I'll try to contact Jean-Claude C.

2) The name of Agincourt is confusing with the small French village of Agincourt located in the East of France near Nancy in Lorraine, Meurthe et Moselle at some 450 km of AZINCOURT in the Pas-de-Calais where the battle took place.  I'll have to adjust my titles everywhere...

for history , Mr Colrat(middle age specialist)  said to me the connetable Richmond WAS NOT CONNETABLE AT THE BATTLE AGINCOURT AND HE HAS GOT THIS  WHITE FLAG  IN 1425  AT THE BATTLE OF PATAY

Hello Gents, here is the reply received today from Vittorio Gironi; I will order the 10 pages, to come in Belgium for August:

"Hello Michel,

A large part of my drawings about Azincourt, as well as the items by MB Zinnfiguren, are inspired to the works of my good friend Mario Venturi. "World Master” for Italy his model soldiers are in many european and american collections. About Azincourt he wrote two books and together with Peter Greenville he wrote the book “Create Miniature Knights”, in this book there are two Mario’s masterpiece: the diorama of Crécy (gold at Folkestone 1997) and the diorama of Poitiers (gold at Boston 2005). Here below you can find the link to Mario Venturi website:   http://www.parvimilites.it/03_04centoanni.html
Here enclosed I’m sending you a picture of the work he realized for me two years ago.

Best regards

Vittorio"




Therefore I believe BFFS should pursue the production of Agincourt flats with the English team, along with MB zinnfiguren ..... and perhaps some other ones ...

This will also complete the Knights developed by Western Miniatures and a bit lost . I am working on the serie for 2019-2020 (I needed to become a better painter first ...).
