Sir Roger de Clifford - Battle of Poitiers

Here is another Black Tree Design HYW knight in late-14th C. armor. He's painted up as Sir Roger de Clifford who had long and successful careers in both politics and the military. He saw extensive service in France and Scotland.
Here he is bearing the standard of the Black Prince. There is no evidence that Sir Clifford actually carried these colors at Poitiers or elsewhere, but I liked the combination of his arms and the prince's standard.
The standard was downloaded from the excellent Danish Figure Games Association website.
This is the last of the late-HYW figures from Black Tree Design. There are three more figures from their early-HYW range to be painted.
Oops - I see that I forgot to paint the leather strap and vervelles that hold the aventail to the bascinet.
