Hotspur

Henry Percy, commonly known as Hotspur. He was a significant captain in the border area during the Anglo-Scottish wars.In April 1386 Hotspur was dispatched to France to reinforce the English garrison at Calais, while there he led raids into Picardy. Between August and in October 1387 he took command of a naval force in an attempt to relieve the siege of Brest He later fought at Otterburn and led a rebellion against Henry IV of England and was slain at the Battle of Shrewsbury in 1403. Figures are Claymore Castings, flags by Flags of War.  Figures painted by Andrew and David.
I'm getting these ready for a game on the 15th.

Lovely painting. I forget how many times I was taken to Alnwick castle as a lad and regaled with tales of the borders and the see the Tenantry Column, topped with the Percy lion.
