If I'd had a little more time I would have decked out some of the Men at Arms and Fierce Foot in something akin to plaid, which although not in use at the time (in as far as we know) would have given them a certain flavour. I feel that this is something that I could get away with, like the Clan Cameron Livery which I have completely invented! In reality the checks of the time on the clothing were probably very fine in the weave and wouldn't be visible until one was very close.
I've actually still got a unit of Fierce Foot and two units of Bidowers to get painted up for the campaign but thankfully some Welsh Teulu that I had painted about ten years ago have been more than useful as stand ins for the rest of the retinue. The sharper among you may have already picked this up from the AAR's that I've posted.
Back to the Hastings Game tomorrow evening.
Bye for now.
