From the home page you will have seen mentioned
the 'founding' four members. I'll list these in order now -
though so far there is only little me - with details and photo. But, I'll get more done as and when details become available. But for now it's...
The Count of Henneberg
Coming from what is now Germany, a township or state of Henneberg, is
'The Count'. I'd guess the title isn't all that legitimate but it
impresses the yokels. Born as a younger son, with little reason
to hope to inherit, The Count has been wandering Europe most of his
life accompanied by his trusty standard bearer. Also with a Czech
priest who was forced from his homeland due to his Hussite
beliefs. Briefly with
the Teutonic Knights in the Baltic, he picked up a slave who was later
promoted to serf. The Count has also had contact with a
group of Lollards and picked up an English copy of the Bible; well,
the four Gospels, and so is not entirely trusted by the established
religious community. I guess that makes us forerunners of the
Reformation. So where else to hide your religious beliefs
than in the middle of a civil war?
The full harness to be completed in due course as money allows (I'll keep updating the photo).
This particular character was inspired by a statue. A picture of this can be found in the Osprey Publishing book on the Teutonic Knights or, perhaps better, on Graham Turner'swebsite.
Well, actaully, it's not on Graham's website anymore - which I'd guess
means that he's sold it... Curses, ah well, perhaps I'll just
have to commission him to paint me in a similar pose when I have the
Remember; Some say, he has a silver tongue. And that his
heart is pure gold. All we know is, he's called The Count.
