Humphrey Stafford, 1st Duke of Buckingham - Another Perry Miniature
Here is the Duke of Buckingham figure from the three figure Perry set. Sir Humphrey was a close supporter of Henry VI, yet tried to keep the peace between the king and the Duke of York. He was wounded at the First Battle of St Albans.
The figure is in full plate armor of the period with a civilian coat over it. He is also wearing a fashionable headdress - or possibly drying his hair with a towel.
The duke was present at the relatively bloodless Battle of Ludlow Bridge which had Yorkists leaders escape before overwhelming Lancastrian forces.
The King Henry VI figure is next.
