This weeks blog is a look at the latest units that I have painted to join my WOTR army – crossbowmen and hand gunners. I hope that you find it useful.

I must say, you did a great job. The red crosses on the figures look like decals and not painted on. How did you get them squared off so well?

VCarter – thanks for your comments. The crosses were first painted on in red using thinned paint and I let the brush determine the width of the line. To get the squared edge, I corrected any errors by painting across the end of the line in the original blue or white if you see what I mean. That then tidies everything up. I hope that helps.

That's what I thought you may have done.

Great job all around.

Perfect painting! From the iconography on the pavises I would class this is a Burgundian unit, though. Was there any faction in the WotR that used this coat of arms?

I think the shields are decals.

The images are the red saltire of Burgundy and the Burgundian 'flint and steel' image.

The white and blue livery was used by several in the WOTR:

Henry VI
Duke of Somerset
Lord Fauconberg
Sir Richard Croft
