Plastic Mounted knights from Perry Miniatures 3 Years, 8 Months ago
Recently Perry Brothers announced new plastic set of late medieval/renessaince knights. Hopefully it will hit the shelves before Christmass.

http://theminiaturespage.com/news/602520/

The horses can be assembled with barding, and knights will have different weapons /helmets options.

Even that horses of Perrys are typically smaller than GW, they can be used for yomens, and knight can fit nicely with old GW plastics, or (I hope) new plastic horses too...

Brilliant times three - though in my opinion, the late 15th cent. Italian-style armour looks a bit more Empire than Bretonnian.
Still - superb, superb, superb!

They look great, being 15th-16th century cavalry they do fit better with Empire.

Re:Plastic Mounted knights from Perry Miniatures 3 Years, 8 Months ago
I respect the Perry brothers more and more with their plastic Agincourt to Orléans range.

I am currently thinking of their use in a bretonnian army. As they are not barded, the cannot be used as WYSIWYG knights. But with sculpted barding.

The other is mounted yeoman, but they are too heavy armoured for it. Any ideas or thoughts for conversions or use in the army? The figs look neat, but I don't want to put them only on the shelf.

These would make cool QKs because they have a unique armor style! Perhaps they are returning from adventures in the south?

Zirrian, these figures will have some kind of attachable barding (that was on TMP announcement). BTW, their armor is exactly like thr armor of Voland Venators (done by the same Perry Brothers long time ago...)

Zirrian,

I too am a fan of the Perry Miniatures figures, especially their latest Wars of the Roses and European Mercenary plastic Infantry sets.
I'm currently working on some of these at the moment, but unfortunately not as Bretonnians.

The new mounted figures could be used as a mounted M@A unit, perhaps.

I currently own only one boxes of them, and I plan to use them as Man at Arms and Peasant Archers, but I'm not totally sure if I'll ever play with them - I realized that the modelling and painting is much better for me.

And please forgive me for my misreading - again - when I read the article second time, I saw the part that clearly explained that there will be barding for the horses. I'm very curious about them, and I hope that the armor will be closer to Bretonnia than the Empire.
