Medieval Polish Camp Element - Vexillia

I’ve been meaning to do this for some time. 

Claudio Berni’s painting of his Baueda baggage models has always been exceptional.   In the early days of Vexillia I always wanted to paint camps like the ones in Claudio’s advertising flyer

Over the summer I finally got my paint brush out and tried to match the master:



This camp combines a Baueda tent with some of the Vexillia Medieval Polish infantry and some Essex horse holders.

The tent design is based on the banner of Sandomierz taken from the now out of print book on Polish Heraldry at Grunwald, 1410:



Here’s a full, all angles, montage which is linked to a much larger image for those of you who like to study painting styles in detail:



There’s another camp to come: I’ve only one horse left to paint.
