Thomas de Beauchamp, 12th Earl of Warwick, KG
This is another one of the Black Tree Design figures from their Late-HYW range. The 12th Earl of Warwick was the son of the earl of the same name who had fought at Crecy and Poitiers. The 12th Earl served under John of Gaunt in France in 1373. The Earl also served under Richard II and campaigned in Scotland in 1385.
His armor is mostly plate and representative of the type in use in the late-14th C. As befitting his status and rank, his armor is richly ornamented with gold or brass.
