Wars of the Roses 1455-1485

Hi, here is the command base painted last week for Lord Thomas Stanley Earl of Derby.





Sir Thomas Stanley 1st Earl of Derby (1435-1504)

One of Stanley's retainers, livery tawney & green, badge a eagles/falcons claw 'Or'. 

Stanley's personal standard a swallow-tailed banner is hand-painted on metal foil, so it can be reshaped to give the appearance of fluttering in the wind.

Thomas Stanley fought throughout the Wars of the Roses, shifting allegiances a number of times, a true survivor he eventually died of old age in 1504.

These miniatures are 28mm scale manufactured by Perrry miniatures and painted by me at theminiaturepaintingstudio@live.co.uk

The base is 60mm in diameter textured with grass, grass tufts and red flowers to denote his Lancastrian loyalties.
