Don't tell them to much, John. They are on the way to Grandson to  battle with the swiss...


Thanks for your comment.

The pinnacle of flat painting, to me, are the groupings telling the story as the producers intended.  Great series very well researched with superb painting skills.  Did these men at arms have a good day or bad day on the battlefield?

Hello,
Here is the next. First part of a group of burgundy foot soldiers. Lead by their captain, a mounted banner bearer and two mounted archers as the captains bodyguards. The banner is taken from the Schilling Chronik as well in my last post.

Hello,
Next picture shows some more mounted archers including a banner.
As I told you before I'm doing a lot of research when painting my figures. So I found a picture of this banner and some others of that style in the swiss "Berner Schilling Chronik". It is quite different from the style of the banners of the burgundy ordonnance compagnies.
But if you had a look to scoures about the banners taken by the swiss from the burgundy between 1474 and 1477 you will also find a number of banners that didn't match the ordonnance style.
So for this unit I painted the banner as shown in the Berner Schilling Chronik.


For all of you how like to take a closer look to the Schilling Chronik have a look here, the banner can be found on page 203:

I'm not really sure, how to present the hole thing. I don't think that I'm going to build a diorama. The plan is to present the figures a way like on the photos here. So maybe vitrine with some board above  each other.

Very nice - as usual, Christoph!
But - I think - we haven't heard about the outcome of your continuously growing Burgundian army?
Are you planning a diorama populated with these figures?
I would be also curious how do you display/store the figures at present?
In glass-vitrine?
Have a nice weekend and enjoy the paintwork!

Thank you, Sandor.


The red banner can be found in the Freiburger Fahnenbuch. Sadly there are no further information where it was taken or to who it belonged.
Together with some other it does not follow the pattern of the banners of the burgundy ordonnance compagnies. So the function of this banner is not quiet clear and I decided to use it for the vanguard together with some other not ordonnance banner  I 'm going to paint.
