English personalities for the middle phase of the Hundred Years’ War — Edward the Black Prince; John of Gaunt; and Hugh, Second Earl of Stafford, who would have been a sub commander. John is in a houpeland. Other than the Black Prince, the models could be used for other combat ready commanders of the period. Coming soon.
Just posted an image of some English aristocrats for our mid Hundred Years’ War range, so let’s balance it out by previewing some tough as nails Scottish commoners with spear, ready to form a schiltron ….
These and the English combat-ready commanders should be available in about two weeks.
First look at Swedish heavy cavalry for the late 16th century. Daniel Staberg was of invaluable assistance in making the late 16th century Swedes — as far as I’m aware the first time this hard fighting army has been made in any scale. Sweden did not have extensive financial resources and even the heaviest cavalry was lighter in equipment than that of other western nations, as can be seen here. They lacked arm or shoulder protection and many had to make due with infantry helmets. The infantry was essentially entirely unarmoured and wore clothing of very simple cut. Because swords are expensive, many infantry instead used axes from the homestead for self defense, and this creates a very interesting link to the Viking heritage.
Despite this these fierce northmen fought Ivan the Terrible’s horde, and the better equipped forces of Denmark/Norway, to a standstill and managed to establish Swedish Estonia. The infantry should be released soon, depending on when they get painted, 😅 follows by horse and command.
