I have also been listening to a lot of audiobooks about the hundred years war and I find it amazingly interesting. I really fell in love with the grand companies running around France and Italy. There is something about the idea of professional soldiers, the routiers and écorcheurs that really appeals to me.
I finally settled on a nice colourscheme. It's not anything that would have existed in the 14th century though. I am truly too affraid to commit to banners and colours that have excisted for real, for fear of having too many details wrong. It's one of those things where even if it doesn't matter too much I would know and be bothered by it. It is also just a lot of fun to invent banners myself.
Onto the miniatures. These are so great and full of detail. I can stare at these for hours on end.
I went with 20mm square bases. I intend to build some movement tray thingy for them at some point.
That way I could always join the big boys if, say I got invited to come play a game. :V
