This is the last commission I did for Medieval Warfare Magazine before I took a break to welcome my first child.
Also known as the Battle of Deptford Bridge during the Cornish Rebellion which erupted some years after the War of the Roses in England. Here Lord Daubeny leads a division of the Tudor forces in a frontal assault on the bridge held by the Cornish forces.
Since this battle took place at the close of the 15th century I wasn't sure about the style of armor they'd be wearing since around this time the german 'Maximillian' and Renaissance styles where also starting to appear. In the end I settled for a more War of the Roses look figuring they'd still be wearing what was popular during that English civil war and not so up to date with the latest styles yet.
A Seljuk heavy cavalryman and a Qara Khitai noble hunting gophers on the steppe. Gophers, once thought to be endemic to North America, were in fact widespread in Asia, until made extinct by excessive hunting by the numerous peoples of the steppe, mainly for sport. Notice the "spotter" on the left, whose task was to shoot gophers in the event of the animal having any chance of escaping, which would reflect badly on the noblemen's prowess. Can you spot the gopher between the two riders?
Edit: Corrected the spelling in the title, thanks to MongkeQaan for pointing out the mistake!
Another painting I did for Medieval Warfare Magazine back in 2012.
If you're a Brit who know his/her history, I assume you'll probably recognize the knight in red. Son of the famous crusader of the same name, Simon de Monfort was one of the founders of parliamentary democracy in England and leader of the Second Baron's War. Here he faces against Gilbert de Clare, fighting under the banner of Prince Edward(future King Edward I "Longshanks"), in the Battle of Evesham where he was eventually killed.
