Now that I have both of my HYW Armies French and English which are nearly all painted it comes to me to paint the remaining portion of both Armies.

Right now I have 3 boxes of Perry figures which are:

Agincourt Foot Knights
Agincourt French Infantry
The English Army

In addition to those there are a very small number of figures which came with my French Army that are only primed.

So I've started to assemble these figures and have based and primed many of them so the next step is to paint them.

Hence my question regarding painting these figures as I've never painted any Medieval figures before I'll need some help.

So first off how would I paint the Knight's/MAA both Mounted and on Foot?

And second how would I paint the non Knight/MAA Foot figure/Archer?

Now I know that I can look at many of my painted figures and just try and match those paint jobs when it comes to the Archers and non Knight's etc but painting a Knight that's what I really need to learn how to do that.

I have metal colors and non-metal colors from various paint sources like Citidel and Army Painter to name 2 so how do I really go about paint a Knight?

One other thing I need some help as to what I'll use for flocking the base so any help would be grateful.
