Hilarious chap and brilliant medieval historian. Obviously there are the well known Monty Python sketches which spring to mind, but for me the scene that captured his humour and medieval interest was from his TV series Crusades, in which he attempts to interview the descendant of a goose which led one of the pilgrimages to the Holy Land. RIP Mr. Jones.

SOLDIERS OF TRADGARDLAND
Following on from the last post, I managed to get some of the figures painted which were sent by The Duke of Tradgardland. After extensive research ( a quick look on Google), I found the main colours of the house of Oldenburg of Denmark , were yellow and red.
I think the officer is an S series Minifigs as he is a lot smaller, but all the others are the ones currently in production. The ensign wears the white sash of Denmark, and I gave him an old school full length standard pole (it looks as if the flag has slipped down a bit so I must fix that).
Once again, many thanks Alan. I enjoyed painting these and hope to expand the army in the future, hopefully with some cuirassiers next.
