Hello everyone,

The very old and beautiful range of Essex is the only one that I know to represent this army at that time with 28mm miniatures, I know it very well because I have a lot of them.

Unfortunately, many references in this range are unusable because the ordinances of 1471, 1472 and 1473 are not respected …

My question is :
Do you know of another manufacture offering specific 28mm figures to represent this Burgundian army of 1476-1477?

Thank you

Sorry, none that I know of.
On the other hand – apart from colors and the crosses attached to the armour, there would be no real difference between Burgundian and French or German forces, not to speak of the Italian and English contingents in Burgundian service that kept their equipment. The ordonannces set minimum standards that should be largely met, but apart from that?

I do rely heavily on the Perry sets for the late 15th century, skipping some of the plastics for the Burgundians. Then I do go fishing in many "fantasy" lines that rely on the gothic style that features the late 15th century. Foundry has usually fine equipment, though the proportions are different to the new plastic sets.

All of this said: No, I do not know of any line that specifically covers the late Burgundian army. I am certainly also interested in any hints, though, as I am building up for a Neuss campaign with a "what if" for the battle between Reichsheer and Charles army, which was kind of abortive in real history but could have escalated quite easily.

Just in case you haven't already found it, you may find this blog about building a 28mm Burgundian army using mostly Perry plastics interesting. Some extremely impressive conversions, customisations, scratch building and painting. Really inspiring stuff, I think.

Thank you but for example, what kind of quivers did the mounted archers of the ordinance companies wear to carry their 30 arrows?
An ordinary quiver like the English mounted archers or a canvas bag?

I am not aware of any depiction or description. I assume they would use what is locally made, and being both mainly functional and inspired by the HYW archers anyway, I would not expect major differences between Burgundian and English bags.
