You can see me in the Despencer colours but if you see plain red tabbards/surcoats with a despencer badge on they are my novices.
So be nice to them thanks. :D

Hi we could work on getting one up and running for next year we would need plenty of combatants to make it worth while.
There is a lack of interest in early stuff latey.
We would need a massive publisty boost
to get people interested in using there swords again. :cry:

Hi Mac
Would be good to see Temps on the field except its getting harder to find battles that are early period as the 15 century poleys are taking over.
Lets get a good early battle going with no pole regiments being tuder pikes pretending to be 15th century spears.
:wink:

I completely agree with what you are saying. Iam just throwing some thoughts in to the mix. It would be nice to get enough people on the field to try out differnt scenarios and see what would have worked from a realistic point of view. At the EMA training weekend a sword unit with just one spear man...

Do we somtimes think of battles as one form of action rather than each differnt unit/weapon as a piece in the game. What i mean is using cavelry when the enemy rout or have undefended archers or men at arms with short arms. Using archers against unsupported spear units stood behind units of spear an...

What would be nice is to have to armies set out how they might have been with spear men protecting the archers archers from cavalry . Instead of roaming the reenactment field as invincable pike blocks. Have archers loose there arows then engage the enemy when they run out of arrows and even flat sho...

At Tewkes there was a company of archers and one had the full despencer coat of arms on. He looked more like a Knight than an archer so i agree that a livery cote and badge would have more in keeping with his position as an archer. It would also be nice to see archers with a little more armour on an...

So if a noble mans archers were on the battle field would they have the same full coat of arms on there tabbard? If so how does the enemy tell from a distance that it isnt the guy with the money. Has any body got any ideas on what makes the distinction on who can wear a heraldic tabbard and who shou...
