These utilise a waste by-product of my Swiss Project.


There's more about them on t'blog!

Nice work.

Great job! There was a clear tendency towards uniformisation. 15th century militia would be more uniformly dressed with the same combination of colours (e.g. white and blue) found all over the army. Previously, in the 14th century, each guild would have a different combination of colours and these combinations could vary according to each year and each campaign. Steve Barber makes great 14th century low countries militia, with the famous goedendag. link
By the mid 15th century, the goedendag was replaced by pikes and warhammers.

Nice work and a great way to use those excess figures – I did the same for a hodge-podge of figs from several projects and came up with one of my favourite late medieval units

Nicely done. I like the color palette you used.

An old book by de Vigne has some information on colours worn by some guilds and cities at various times.

Thanks chaps! Swampster, yes I was thinking of that book- IIRC there are references to red and yellow cloth. But I won't get too hung up over colours. I'll be using the guild flags described in that book, too.

Let me know if you need any help with the translation from French or Dutch.

Oh thanks- that's very kind of you!

These will fight for their town. No need for more money Simon. Your Swiss are not so patriotic. Cheers!
