It started with an idea on Facebook. What is the club was to do battles from the 100 Years War using 10mm figures. OK, it is a period I know little about, I think Joan of Arc has something to do with this as do English long bows. So with the able assistance from Tony and Keith I was off.
After looking over the the Magister Militum website, I had six packs for a Company of 12 stands.
Once the order arrived I had the problem of how to paint them. I didn't think I had any references dealing with the 100 Years War, but a quick look through my old war game magazines I came up with a half a dozen articles. Add in the Internet and I was off.
My initial idea was the Company would be 12 stands with three horsed. Well with inflation I was fast approaching 15-18 stands and I was not using all of the figures.
Yes they are small...
...but still have a lot of detail
So with the forces based and priming has started I need to think of what type of Captain will be leading this force.
As I want to use a force for both the 100 Years War and the battles in Italy my Captain with be English. (May need a few now armored knights.)
As of tonight I have one stand finished and four others in different states.
I am enjoying the research and the painting and hope the campaigns will be equally enjoyable.
Thank you Tony and Keith for your assistance.
