Killed or Captured at Agincourt

Here is the flower of the French nobility that were either killed or captured on Saint Crispin's Day. They are from the Perrys' foot command set. There's actually one more figure in the set, but I didn't paint it up.
They are, from left to right: 1) Jehan le Meingre "Boucicaut", Marshal of France - died in captivity in 1421 at Yorkshire; 2) Charles d'Albret, Constable of France - KIA; 3) Charles of Artois, Count of Eu - released from captivity in 1438, and lived until 1472; 4) Jean, Duke of Bourbon - died in London in 1434; 5) Charles, Duke of Orléans - released in 1440; 6) Guillaume de Martel, bearer of the Oriflamme - KIA; 7) Lord Rambures - KIA.
They'll be based along with mounted figures for command stands.

  1. Dean,

    They look terrific, your middle ages troops are always the best. I like Guillaume the best.

  3. Striking work! I like them all. Can you share your armor technique? It looks like perfectly burnished metal. Excellent!

  5. Thanks for the kind words, Jonathan and Rodger.

    Jonathan: I used a pin (the regular kind for sewing) to burnish the metal. After the burnishing I gave it a wash of Vallejo Black Ink/Stain. I rubbed some of the ink off after it dried, then gave it a light coat of Krylon Clear. The clear acts as a primer for the other areas.

    Warm regards, Deam

  11. Thanks, Gentlemen, for all of your great comments.

    @ Scrivs: I just can bring myself to muddy up figures - even my WW2 guys are in pristine camo. :)

    Warm Regards to all, Dean
