all my FC have magnets attached to their arm and all the shields a small piece of metal on the back so that I can change out the coats of arms and run any Baron as their leader.

I painted two of each unit, all my mounted units in basic colors so that they would match the heraldry of the Lord they were serving.

Yellow/gold and red
green and yellow/gold
blue and gold
blue and silver
black and red

@ C.williams: Yes Ex Ills bits, my warhammer is gathering dust since I found Ex Illis. I'll PM you a list.


@ yosefbender: Did you know that knights never wore their lord's livery? Knights were To proud of their own coat of arms to chainge it and it would be way to costly to chainge their arms every time they serve an other lord.
Only very rich Lords provided clothes or an uniform for his servants, so it's more likely to see billmen in the Baron's colours than the french knights.

yeah historically I know that ; whenever King Arthur's knights ever get released each one will be uniquely different. I really see the Fc as a unit of heavy Cavalry, more than Knights even though that's historically not the case. I think it wasn't until the 1900s that an Army had its own Cavalry, so there's a lot of fudging to make the battlefield look good :oops:

@ C.williams: If you are going to be at the Tournament on the 4th I will happily swap any “english crown shields” that I may have left for Gloucester shields. I also believe that some of the other players are looking for blank or French crown shields.
Humm..... “create my own family's coat of arms.” Is that not what the blank shields are for! :D
You could always do what I did and look up the earliest use of your heraldic surname and use those colours and symbols. ;)

@ yosefbender I agree with you the F.C. are more a unit of heavy mounted men at arms/personal bodyguards, with the Baneret being the Knight’s.

Lord supplied the most trusted/permanent troops with livery coats from about the middle of the 12th century which I think would include the F.C.

In England the New Model Army of 1645 had its own cavalry divisions so that would have been the earliest that an army had it own cavalry here, but I think there may have been early examples in other European countries.

thanks for the historical update, good to know that the theme could be followed through
