Battle of Blackheath


Badge Awards



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.

For those interested you can check out the magazine here. Its a very interesting magazine if you're in to medieval history. >> [link]
