Hello John.,
Blue and white with the red cross of St Andrew was the livery of Charles the bold and the same coloures were used for the pennons as well. He indroduced this livery in the early 1470 years for the whole burgundy army together with the system of the ordonnance compagnies.

What do the blue/white pennants with red "X" represent?

Hello,
Next picture shows some mounted crossbow men with their banner. The original banner can be found at the Zeughaus in Solothurn,  Swiss.

Thanks
Today some more banners. The first one is from the Freiburger Fahnenbuch,  the second can be found in the Berner Schilling Chronik  and the last one is painted after a surviving original which is now at the Landesmuseum at Z├╝rich.

Nobility, knights, jousts, heralds, archers and trying to guess what comes next:  men at war on foot.  Beautiful work done on these flats and very large series/set.

Hello,
Thank you for your comments.
Next is  a group of mounted archers wearing the livery of Antoine de Bourgogne,  brother of Charles the bold. Antoine employed archers as his personal lifeguard in 1465. I found no informations if these lifeguard exists in later years when Charles reorganised the ducal guard but I'm pretty sure that high ranking persons still had their own lifeguard.

Hello,
Next is a burgundy captain with a herold, some homme de armes and his banner.
A 17th century copy of the original banner can be found in a Museum in Appenzell. It is on of many unidentified banners taken by the swiss during the burgundy war. This one showing St. Georg killing the dragon, three dolphins and the monogramm "CC".
The figure of the banner bearer is from Golberg, now Dangelmaier. I added some "green stuff" to get the right shape for the banner.
