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.

Thanks.
The first three of the figures edited by Mr Lehnart,  the last one is by Mr Fechner. This figure is a bit different in the style of clothing so I placed it on the rear. You may see the different style of headwear.
You are right, the small flags with the burgundy arms are a bit of a challenge. I was thinking of painting some other stuff on it like the burgundy cross. But that would not show the same effect. So I'm glad you like it.
Christoph

Beautiful work on the blue colors; the heraldry is very convincing for 30mm size.  Nice knights and entourage as well, a pleasure to see your painting skills and hard work.
