Campobasso was conducteur of the 16th Ordonnance Company and is noted as one of the main commanders at the siege of Neuss, although he became ill during the protracted campaign and was replaced. It appears that Campobasso had a turbulent relationship with his employer - by the battle of Morat in 1476 it was his sons who commanded the 16th Company, as Charles had dismissed Nicola from his employment. However by Nancy in 1477 the Comte was again leading the Company. Perhaps anticipating another Burgundian defeat he deserted prior to the battle to the Lorrainers and took no part.
The figures are Perry metals again - I've done a headship on the figure of the Comte, for a plastic one and replaced the baton with a mace. Again the models are on sabot bases, so I can do a bit of juxtapositions with them, when they're all done.
Colors and details are outstanding!ReplyDelete

Nice figure,this is my favourite conducteur because he is the comte of Campobasso,place where my grandfather born,but I don't share his desertion in the most difficult moments for the burgundian cause.ReplyDelete
