Title: Hundred Years War - DBA
Post by: paulr on 14 May 2020, 09:05:38 AM
With my Punic War project rapidly approaching completion I'm starting to do some painting research for my next project the Hundred Years War

I've order enough figures for 8 DBA armies
    IV/16 Scotland
    IV/57 Low Countries
    IV/62 100 Years War English (2)
    IV/64 Medieval French (2)
    IV/74 Free Company & Armagnac
    IV/76 Early Burgundian

I'd be very interested if anyone can point me at online resources for painting these forces, particularly livery colours for the more 'common' soldiers

As far as I'm aware there's not a lot of contemporary details on it, so you could make a lot of it up as long as you follow general guidelines. Typically they would favour bright colours, usually one or two primary colours from the lord's coat of arms. So if you find a noble you want to represent and get their cost of arms, then you can generally pick the colours from the arms and use that. For instance the Tudor colours were green and white so the common soldiers would have livery of half green, half white. The English royal colours were the quartered red and blue so that's an easy one too, or the red with the three yellow lions. It seems the St George cross was common too, white with a red cross.

Blue, white and yellow go a long way for the French. They also favoured crosses, white I believe, on a solid coloured background, typically red or blue. Solid colours with emblems all over them seem to have been used too, at this scale that could be something like a red with white dots, or blue with yellow dots. The latter would work well for the French royal colours.

http://www.hundredyearswar.com/Books/History/Livery_a.htm

Pretty good breakdown of picking livery colours from costs of arms: https://www.reddit.com/r/heraldry/comments/c7ig7k/your_livery_colours_and_you_a_graphical_guide/

For particular nobles I came across this, though not sure how accurate it is:

https://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/1505/0474/files/MED_FLAGS.pdf

Perhaps more reliably, the college of arms has some good examples from Agincourt:

https://www.college-of-arms.gov.uk/news-grants/news/item/119-the-battle-of-agincourt

This seems interesting from the French side:

http://jean-claude.colrat.pagesperso-orange.fr/index-angl.htm

Given the length of the period in question things changed a lot. In earlier periods of the war solid colours would have been more common and a less uniform appearance overall, but over time brightly coloured livery became a way for lords to flaunt their wealth and power and they became increasingly elaborate. I would guess that as the war progressed and the king's gained a bit more power, more troops would be in their colours than the individual lords, bit I'm not entirely sure on that one.

I suppose the question is do you want your armies to have a fairly consistent theme throughout, e.g. one English all in green and white halves, or white and red cross, or in red and blue quarters. A French in blue and white crosses or yellow dots. Or do you want a more varied "every lord for himself" approach with a bit of variety and different colours and styles for each unit. You can make things up a bit for this as it's just not as well documented as is say the War of the Roses.

This site had some good info on picking colours, e.g. http://www.fleurdelis.com/tinctures.htm

Hope this helps a little! Looking forward to seeing what you do with them.

Warning a number of Lego figures and horses :o were harmed during the making of the above movie ;)
I recognised some of the heraldry in the movie :-B

Thanks MMCV, some useful links there including some I hadn't come across

My current thinking for the English & French is to identify appropriate knights, probably from Agincourt as it is famous and near the middle of the period, and each will then have a retinue of men-at-arms and bowmen. I'll include some red crosses for the English and white for the French

I'll do something similar with the Burgundians and the Free Company

The Low Countries will be focused on a number of guilds and the Scots will probably be hodden grey with flags from appropriate cities/counties/clans

Haha yes, though I'm guessing that's maybe just in the spirit of the Spanish translations? Also a lot of the illustrations are a bit away from the information about them so there's a fair bit of scrolling back and forth. Probably less an issue with a physical book.

Some good information though, especially focused on warfare.

Yes! The only real evidence for any sort of pre-contact "artillery" I've come across and it's one illustration and a few lines of description. It can't have been that effective though, a spinning crossbeam with a pike of stones in front, I'm sure there's a fair amount of friendly fire.

Title: Re: Hundred Years War - DBA
Post by: paulr on 19 May 2020, 09:34:50 AM
I've decided on the 6 Knights I will use as the basis of my English armies

Based on The characters in Shakespeare's Henry V they will be:
  • King Henry V - White & Blue livery
  • Duke of Exeter - White & Red livery
  • Earl of Salisbury - Red & Black livery
  • Duke of Gloucester - Mulberry & Blue livery
  • Duke of York - White & Blue livery
  • Earl of Warwick - Red livery

Interestingly it appears that Thomas Beaufort was only made Duke of Exeter in 1416, so at the time of Agincourt he was the Earl of Dorset :-B

Time to do some research on:
  • Constable of France
  • Duke of Bourbon / Duke of Brittany (depending on the edition of the play)
  • Duke of Orléans
  • Duke of Berry
  • Duke of Burgundy I also have a Burgundian army, to be lead by Jean the Fearless
  • Lord Rambures
  • Lord Grandpré

Interesting.  How many figures on a base are you planning to have, or did you have for the Punic Wars.  My 6mm Punic Wars are doubled numbers of 6mm on a 15mm base. 


Title: Re: Hundred Years War - DBA
Post by: paulr on 20 May 2020, 02:46:12 AM
I'm using the same number of mounted figures, except I use 4 Knights rather than 3 to differentiate from cavalry more clearly

I use twice the number of foot figures, basically two ranks rather than one, slightly less for hoard only 7 or 9 figures

When I did 6mm I used four times the figures for foot and three or four times as many mounted

All based for 15mm, i.e. 40mm wide bases for DBA I use 20mm deep for most foot, 30mm deep for mounted and 40mm deep for artillery, elephants and hordes

@PaulR

I am intrigued. Which codes are you using for your 100YW? Are you going for the Crecy end rather than the Castillion end?

My minor gripe about Pendraken Medieval ranges is the lack of a good pig faced bascinet. The mid European Range seems a little too early, and the Late European seems a little too late.




For Techno - a pig faced bascinet

I'm 'focusing' my forces around Agincourt and using mainly the Late European and TB ranges with a mix of

ELM36 14th Century Knights

ELM3 Dismounted Knights

There is a suggestion that clibanarius is a corruption of grivepan, Persian for warrior, and was adopted as a name for the troop type by the Romans because it means "baking oven man."

Coat of arms of Oxford ... yes that Oxford ... the proper one with the university and all. Ox crossing the river ... yup that's fine ... but why a tattooed elephant or a green beaver? 

Heraldically speaking, isn’t that one of the furs?  So it’s actually a fluffy elephant!  :o

Green beaver?  Too much cheese at bedtime?  @-)

Elephant = strength, stature, wisdom and courage.
Fur gives dignity.

Beaver = industry and perseverance.
Green gives hope and loyalty.

I think it is very undignified but the past is a strange country and they do things differently there, especially in respect of the interests of those with money.

[Fancy markings on a black elephant seems more like the drawing of a five year old ].

Can you not unwrap the package, wearing gloves, and retrieve the goodies within, Paul ?
No-one could have touched those, since they left Middlesbrough.....Unless any customs officials have had a peek inside the box.

The packaging can then be left to 'decontaminate' before being recycled.

There WERE reports of a certain frequency of UV light that will kill viruses......But not harm ourselves......That's gone very quiet of late. :-\
A shame....that sounded like an exciting discovery.

If you want to be extra cautious wear nitrile/latex gloves and you can even start sorting and prepping them: or use tongs/tweezers to pick up the packets.

Since the main route of infection in this type of scenario is touching your face after touching something someone infected has touched, the gloves help by giving you a visual reminder not to do it and you can treat the gloves like an extra layer of epidermis: a thorough wash with soap will remove/kill any viral particles you may pick up!  :-B

I figure that anything hit with a blast of spray primer is either going to be immediately denatured and/or destroyed and/or encased in a paint sarcophagus and so is no longer going to be a infection risk  ;)

Late to the conversation as always (& having done an Advanced City & Guilds in Heraldry in my youth) - the 'fur' on the elephant is Ermine.

I think a green Beaver is something she might need antibiotics for however!

I'll get my coat (of arms!) ...

PS: that Oxford Coat of Arms is not correct for 100years War - best book if yoy want HYW Heraldry is the one from Freezywater Publications. They also fo great Wars of the Roses Heraldry as well.

You can use the peasants to form a French Jacuerie army: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jacquerie
There are some interesting battles and small sieges they were engaged in. Played as a wild-card (as they attacked both French - nobles & cities - and also the English & Free Companies) - they'd make an interesting addition to the campaign.

Title: Re: Hundred Years War - DBA
Post by: Big Insect on 29 May 2020, 08:59:38 AM
A whole army might be interesting -  ;D

I cannot remember if DBA has 'horde' type elements in it or not - but I suspect the army is probably not much more than a mass of 'horde or levy' with a few Warband for the better equipped ex-feudal retainer types or more motivated rioters and maybe a base or 2 (max) of some Skirmisher of Psiloi types - armed with a mix of bows, slings and xbows.

It's been a long time since I played DBA (but I am an avid Hordes of the Things player) is it still 12 elements regardless of how bad they are?

As 12 elements of hordes is probably NOT an army worth fighting with - unless it is in a campaign where the objective for the peasants is just to create as much damage as possible each battle regardless of their own losses, as they always come back next battle will the full 12 elements, whilst their enemy slowly gets fewer units each time.

I used to play a set of colonial rules called Battles for Empires (very good it is to) and that had scenarios for the Natives where they could get massacred by the European forces but still win the game.

Those crossbow are from the TB range TB-168, I wanted to differentiate between the Burgundian and Low Countries crossbowmen.

Ta. That explains why I don’t recognise them. I own loads if the TB Islamic figures but tend to forget about the European ones for some reason.

Being on the other side of the world (NZ) from most of the manufacturers and other temptations helps ;)

One horse in the second batch base coated and dry brushed :) :)

Armour base coated and dry brushed :) :)

Both ELM5 Retinue longbow poses look to be carrying a buckler sized shield, I assume these would be made of iron
Were they perhaps painted or covered by leather, one of the poses has the shield against the figures mailed back which will not give very much contrast

Yes, sorry you will need to wait a bit longer.

Both Paul and I have been subjected to large doses of real life drama in recent days which severly impact the time we have available to spend on the hobby. We're OK but are both dealing with separate issues at the moment.

Hopefully normal service will be resumed shortly.

Peter, best wishes to you and yours too.

Thanks. My mother passed away peacefully last week. She was 90 and had a good life. Originally from Edinburgh she had lived in NZ for many years but she was rightly always very proud of her Celtic origins. She was where l got my interest in the wars of the 3 kingdoms from. Of course she'll be greatly missed but the family moves on. I have taken on role of family "historian" so have quite a trove of family history stuff to go through.

I feel ready to get back to doing some gaming 🙂

My condolences also, Peter.

Family history can be an interesting one, can occasionally throw up some surprises and interesting connections.

Indeed. My neighbour discovered he was adopted, his mother having the same surname as me and both of us having Alexander as our middle names - yet otherwise we found no family connection (recent at any rate).

And good luck, Paul. Hope something turns up soon but if not, keep faith in yourself and it will happen. It's not your fault and you are as good as you ever were.

I visited our nearest FLGS on Saturday and did not come away empty handed either (after I had first done my duty and visited my in-laws who live not too far from the shop  O:-)) .....got some decal softening and setting compounds on order to do decals for 1/600th planes and 1/3000th carrier decks......and some other stuff for a rainy day project I have thought about doing for quite a few years now.

Well you have to support local suppliers where you can, though in this case "local" is a 45 - 50 minute drive up to the Kapiti Coast. There are no longer any "true" model shops in Wellington.....though there is a GW outlet not too far from where I live, useful for getting Citadel washes from.

Over 41 degrees away from the equator, I am using indirect natural light.

Good work on these Paul - the way you have used muted colours on the rank and file, yet kept them bright is impressive.

The TB line figures fit in well size wise, but the fact you have had to mix these in with the later period knights, does show a gap in the ranges for HYW MAA

Finished painting and touch ups on the second batch of the second English army :) :)

Need to do the wash, final dry brush etc :!!

A couple of months ago Pierre the Shy mentioned that we had both been subjected to large doses of real life, in my case redundancy due to Covid
Good news this week, I have been able to get a couple of ongoing casual roles that will help generate some useful income while I continue to search for a suitable IT role :) :)
This will unfortunately reduce the time available for painting :(

Scots are irregular, so a mix of dull colours but also yellows (boiled onion skins) were common.

A middle-eastern technique of hard-boiling eggs cooks them with onion skins for six hours. The final colour is attractive, and permeates the albumen too.

I know. This is the 21st century now. We're all supposed to do two day weeks and have oodles of leisure time. And we're also supposed to have flying cars and nuclear-powered airliners.

At least, this is what I was led to believe as a small boy growing up in the 1970's. I fear I was misled . . .

Good to hear that you are back to work Paul. I've cut the lawn this month in London should be the last time this year.

Good to see so much progress on these!  I missed our last lawn cut so I think it'll be a jungle by Feb/Mar when the weather improves enough to get out there.

Being in the office 5 days a week combined with the run up to the Christmas 'silly' season has limited progress on the current batch of French :!!

The weather and my schedule have finally combined to allow me to take some pictures of the last batch of French

Isn't DBA for SMALL armies ?

Those are great Paul, I like what you have done with the peasants, I will remember to look back at these when I start my Japanese ones.

Isn't DBA for SMALL armies ?

Correct, DBA armies are all limited to 12 elements per army. But Big battle DBA has up to 3 armies per side, so getting up to 658 figures isn't that hard, especailly as you can double the number of figures per base in 10mm on some bases (normally in 15/28mm scale there are 4 spear or 4 crossbows per base).

Paul likes to think big, but on a small scale  ;)
