War of the Roses project part 4 - The Commanders

For part 3 head Here

Next up we have the commanders - resplendent in armour and heraldic banners. These have all been based on circular disks ranging from 60 to 100mm in diameter.

All the figures shown are from Perry or Front Rank

I should add the vast majority of my force is Yorkist.

First up we have the King (could be either Edward IV or Richard III





Lord Fauconberg (brother to Duke of Salisbury and uncle to Warwick the Kingmaker) 


Lord Hastings - Sir William Hastings of Kirby Muxloe



Earl of Essex - Sir Henry Bouchier of Pleshey


Sir Thomas Stanley, 2nd Lord Stanley of Lancashire


A bunch of various Knights



Sir Thomas Howard, Earl of Surrey


 Sir John Mowbray of Framlington, 4th Duke of Norfolk


Sir John de la Pole of Wingfield, Duke of Suffolk




Sir Richard Neville of Middleham, 1st Earl of Salisbury



Duke of York, Richard Plantagenet of Fotheringhay, 3rd Duke of York


Lord Audley, Sir John Audley



Earl of Warwick, Sir Richard Neville of Middleham





Virtually all of the above were Yorkist supporters for the bulk of the Wars but in order to balance things out I thought I had better include Henry Tudor




More soon

part 5 can be found HERE

  4. Very inspiring. I just finished the WOTR section of Cassel's Battlefields of Britain and Ireland and between it and your blog I am tempted to buy a bunch of Perry's plastics.
