Very nice conversion, historically I think that the archers showed their bowfingers like a V, and that is why the French did cut of their fingers when they took archers as prisoners.



Right but only to the soldiers. The archers or hunters which had to fight for their Lord or King, they only cut the middle finger off, so they still can hunt to feed their families. Thats where the bad middlefinger came from ;-)

Here he is...paintjob istn´t really finished, the highlights are missing. The original figure was the hornist from Zvezda´s 100YW french infantry. I don´t like his fingers and the left shoulder is too big.

Well actually I think that they might did use both, as they wanted to make the French Knights so angry that they charged

Nice little figure...whatever the real origins of the sign he would be acceptable on a wargaming table

I´ve finished a little conversion. The Comte de Sancerre. Horse is from Valdemar, the knight is made of three different Zvezda figs. For the conversion I used "A+B modelling putty" and some greenstuff.

Hi,

Very nice conversion and really love the way you have shown the pieces. Also the painting is good, if you added some more shade and dirt the heraldic work would be top!


Best regards
