Both man and beast amously harnessed in 'arrow proof' armour at Verneuil.
How to model them on the table top? As there is almost no contemporary illustrations that I know of depicting horse barding from 1424 or there abouts I decided that the best route to go down would be to purchase some barded horse flesh from a later period. For this I chose the mounted Men at Arms from the excellent Venexia Late Condotta range. The harness on the horse dates almost certainly from a later date but rather importantly the Perry mounted Men at Arms are a good fit and consequently there will be a lot less sculpting to be done- something at which I am certainly no expert!
There are alas only two barded miniatures in the range but this has been remedied by some simple head swaps. I don't think thay have lost much of the dynamic in terms of pose in transition so as soon as I fill in some gaps with putty and start upon the daunting task of sculpting I'll let you have more pics:
Don't forget you can click on the images to enlarge :O)
