Burgundian Captain

So, having had a diversion from Swiss to complete a duke Charles vignette, whilst waiting for green stuff to cure, I've been diverted further to complete a base for a Burgundian captain.

Actually there wasn't much to do for this vignette. The rider is a Perry metal with plumes attached and the flag bearer is a Steel Fist figure with a headswop for a plastic one. The mount was already wonderfully painted by Stefan of Xuletec blog and I've been waiting for a good opportunity to use it. The heraldry on the captain is Claude be Montagu, Lord of Couches and Sully, who was given the Order of the Golden Fleece in 1468 and the flag is a generic one of the Burgundian arms.


  1. What a splendid vignette (except for the horse ;-))) - I totally forgot that you bought some painted figures some time ago. From the looks of the bridle, it must have served in the Yorkist cavalry before!

  2. Very nice indeed, the SF figure lends itself rather well too.

  3. Really great stuff, the mounted commander but dismounted banner bearer dynamic works really well
