Bob's 28mm Hungarian 15thC Army

Bob has been busy working on a new 15th C Hungarian Army.  I have yet to see it in 'in the flesh' but Bob has sent me some pictures for the blog.

15th century Hungarians - early army of Matias Corvinus Hungary's greatest monarch.




The figures are French HYW with Hungarian Standards and paint schemes.



Based on a 15th C illustration, Bob has given the herald a Hungarian hat made from Humbrol putty - the orange/green colours are taken from Hungarian sources. 




 You may be interested to know that Bob wrote a book on Mattias's father Janos Hunyadi and one of the Standard bearers in the picture above carries his standard, although he was dead by the time Mattias is king - but not forgotten and it is justifiable to carry his Standard.


Bob has been trying them out against his Turks.  The figures are from Lancashire Games.
