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.
