These Agincourt Mounted Knights expand on the three plastic box sets already available for this period – 1415 – 1429 – from Perry Miniatures. The set contains 12 non-nation specific mounted knights on three duplicate frames of body parts, arms and armour, plus four frames of horses.
Although there are copious amounts of human legs, heads and bodies, it is the number of horses that restrict the total amount of ‘makeable’ models to twelve. These horses actually come from the plastic War of the Roses set, with a couple of additional chanfoned (armoured) heads on the main frame.
The three main frames are packed full of parts, including 36 different torsos and head options, plus over 50 weapons – some with arms attached, some without.
The prime objective of this set is to allow for the creation of both heavy and light mounted troops. As well as wealthy knights in shining armour, mounted sergeants and archers (crucial to the English Agincourt campaign) can be created. The inclusion of a hand with bow attached, plus a sheathed bow allows for this, although this set should primarily be seen as an opportunity to create a mixed force of cavalry.
Thoughtful and well researched inclusions of things like the orle and plume helmet decoration and a range of different visors, plus a sheet of French and English armorial banners, makes this a very desirable and versatile set, with the end result being some great looking tabletop mounted knights, which fit seamlessly with the rest of the Perry range.
