I'm considering a foray into medieval games as I have never done this before. Would the lightly armoured figures in this set be in the rear ranks of the men at arms or in separate units? Apologies if this is a silly question.

It depends on what you want them to represent.

Some of the non-men-at-arms figures in that set are quite well-armoured, and could work finely as poorer men-at-arms or other well-equipped retainers that could fight in the rear ranks of men-at-arms.

On the other hand, if the figures are used to present city militias (armed with crossbows, spears and other melee weapons) then these would be well deployed on their own.

I am interested in Agincourt onwards. Which battles would the city militias be involved in?

Some options for the city Militia
Harfleur at Harfleur
Caen at Caen
Falaise at Falaise
Rouen at Rouen
Dreux at Dreux
Meaux at Meaux

I have built mine for the Garrisons of Mayenne, Vitre and Harcourt, and Fougeres for the battle of La Brossinière.

Wasn't the Paris militia involved in the Battle of Herrings in 1429?

And naturally city militias would be likely to get involved anytime somebody would try to lay siege to their city. This might not involve just standing on top of the walls, but also active sallies against the besiegers etc.
