It is hard for me to pick my favorite time & place in history, since there are so many that appeal to me. But amongst the top short list is Medieval Western Europe, and one of the focal points of that era is the Hundred Years War.
I have always wanted to make a historical army for this period.. but which? England, France? Well, probably both honestly, since they're both so appealing and I suffer from a compulsion to have at least 2 'playable factions' for any game.. which is its own topic to explore someday.
Diving into a new period though, especially one that would require so much hobby time & research just isn't in the cards for right now, or apparently in the past decade. Though the 15mm Impetus project over at Geektactica has me inspired... perhaps I'll do something similar in 15mm. So tempting.
But to scratch the itch of the Hundred Years War, I made this warband for skirmish games like Mordheim or Songs of Blades and Heroes: A fantasy or alternate-earth English-style warband.
In Mordheim I ran them under the basic Reiklander list.
Characters (L-R): Young Will, Sergeant Weller, Sir Henry, Friar Cuthbert, Sergeant York (couldn't resist that one)
Still debating going back to add a Baton Sinister on Henry's shield. Might be fun, but I like the shield as it looks as-is.
Men at Arms
Archers and Snodo
Ogre for hire, happy in his new employment.
Until the day I can make a full Hundred Years War army, or two, a skirmish warband was just the right sized project to get a taste for the theme and a useful group of miniatures for a variety of games.
