My first Lancastrians

I have painted my first Lancastrians. To be honest, I had painted them by the end of last year but was waiting to get the flags before I posted them. This contingent of Northern spears supported by archers is led by Sir John Heron of the Ford, ably assisted by Sir John Crackenthorpe, and is part of Northumberland's command. According to one source on the Lance and Longbow Society mailing list (now defunct), Northern spears appear to have been an invention of WRG rather than a reality, but the order of battle we are using calls for them and I like how they look, so I shall use them in at least one incarnation of our Towton refights.
