TAG Tudors

Here's a couple of pics of my first TAG Tudor : Sir Thomas Howard, I've just noticed I've forgot to highlight the horse fitting so will do this when I finish his two companions.

French Landsknechts

Here's a couple of pics representing the flags og the Landsknect  black Bands that were destroyed at Pavia. The flags are conjectural however look very effective when placed together.

Giovanni delle Bande Nere

Here's a couple of flags representing those flown by Giovanni delle Bande Nere. There's not much known about the flags flown by Giovanni , the first one's based on his coat of arms and the second one's the arms of Leo X mentor, uncle and employer to Giovanni.  I might do another two flags adding a black bend on a white field to the o the heraldry  however I'm not convinced that it would be very historical.

  I also need to do a flag for the man himself; I've seen a medal produced shortly after his death with a badge that looks like an Imperial Roman shield design  and read somewhere that he had a  dragon motif on a purple background. when I decide I'll get cracking with that, cheers Pete

Flodden Reenactment

Here's a few pics of the reenactment of the Battle of Flodden  at Etal village today. Everyone was very friendly and it turned out to be a great day out; I'm looking at the Perry plastics now and wondering how much work it would take to convert them. Also  I'd like to thank everyone who posed for the pictures, cheers.
