Two units of cavalry for the War of Burgundian Succession, so these are for AFTER the death of Charles the Bold.

I have posted these in the past, but they have been rebased, reorganised and generally improved.

Very nice work!

Fantastic minis and a fine era to game, though tough in research :-)

Wonderfully fabulistic, congrats!

Great work. I especially like te various lance angles. Too many units have all the lances at exactly the same angle, and it looks unrealistic.

Charlie09 May 2022 10:13 a.m. PST

Thank you all.

@ Puster – Yes the research was tough, but I have done a fair bit! Check out the articles on my blog for what I came up with.

@ MikeTJ – Yep, I agree! And at the same time I don't want the lance angles looking too random. So I have some units that are mostly lowered or 'lowering', and others which are more upright but definitely not uniform. I put a lot of thought into the posing and positioning of the models in my unit, to make it look realistic and not too weird or random. Hope it helps the finished effect!

Really Nice, Glad to see you use one of my Banners !

Those look superb, Charlie 👍. Not only individually lovely paint work on the figures, but great basing and I really like the way you posed the unit. It gives the impression of lines of horsemen staring to urge their mounts forward.

Good work! Some very informative articles – the best coherent history of the later phase of that conflict that I have read so far :-)
I will certainly come back and read all that in detail once my workload lessens in a month or so.

There once was a wikipedia-article on the Battle of Dournon that somehow went missing – probably deleted by some admin due to a lack of knowledge. Only copies remain, none in english or german.

@ Puster
Glad you like it. Making the latter (post 1483) phase coherent was indeed a little tricky – sorting it all out and writing a brief article about it made it all finally clear in my head, until that point it was very confusing to me too.

There's an article on the Battle of Dournon on the French wiki

And this is one of the main sources
