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...

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 ...).

Looking at the other subjects (Indians, Waterloo, Napoleon soldiers, ... I saw these flats on sales on the market since several years, and I wold not be surprised that this guy has painted his subject after the creation of several flats issued previousely, Maio Venturi.

Nice work, very colorfull and will be used as excellent guidance fo painting the flats. We have just to add some three dimensional and volume effect lke rondes-bosses to give our touch !!

I am discovering too, first time, and very surprised !!!

I have sent an email to them to order one set of Agincourt !

As far as the English Team, I have at Montrouge suggested to Brian, and later to Nick B by email, to BFFS to develop the English contrepartie of the battle as possible projet of new flats after Arthur serie, similar to MB Miniatures or via them, to complete the French staff, within two years time and continue the project with the winners of the battle...

So far no reaction, but I suppose it must go slowly to their Staff meetings bfore generating some kind of feedback ...
I bought myself the whole set of French Agincourt with the intend to paint it one day as I had a lot of pleasure to do my two pièces ...

Very surprising indeed and curious as to who was the first native Creator of the drawings ....

Interesting, I have never seen these.  Quite a few of them match figures Mario Venturi and team have done in the past.  There is also one that matches an old Pegaso set of probably 10 years ago.

Nicely done and great painting guides.
