Hi Christoph - it's good to see your developments: the usual nice paintwork and heraldic representation.
By the way I got to be worried about our society, since there was no post since October 29. :(
Nice weekend!

Yes, so your next series will be Richard III's retinue and army! Great information and such a beautifully painted series educates as well as being aesthetic.

It was quite common in the late 15th century to use livery coats to give troops a uniform look.
The englisch made great use of it in the war of roses. For example the livery of Richard III was red and blue.
In 1465 the burgundy army had worn many different liveries of local commanders.
What Charles did was to replace all this different liveries by one burgundy livery.  Other livery coloures were only allowed for the personal guards of high ranking personalities.

Thank you, had not realized the amount of military organization and uniformity Charles the Bold had achieved in the 15th century, for that time he must have been considered an innovator.

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.
