After the comment made by Miniature Minds (Thanks) about 6mm,10mm figures. For me Ancients is defanently 6mm scale the vastness of armies in this scale I think really suits the period even if you don't pack out the base,also the range available is very good in this scale.As for the Medieval period, for me 10mm, still making the armies look BIG but without the vastness of Ancients. Also gives some room for Heraldry etc on the figures, also a better range is available at the moment for Medieval in 10mm.

Had the camera out so took some photos of the Burgundians so far and my army for the late crusades/ fall of acre with Hospitaller military order, Cypriot knights and a unit of crusader knights sent by the pope. The standards and colours are of the order of Hospitallers(late), the Cypriots and the coat of arms of Jean de villiers who was master of the Hospitallers in 1291 when Acre fell.Burgundian figures are from Kallistra and based for Impetus and Late Crusaders are from Magister Militum and based for Warmaster

Well here are the first four units of my 10mm Burgundian Army.The standard on the pike is of Josse de Lalaing (14th Company).I'm trying to be as historical as possible with the colours blue and white for the cav etc, the red cross of St Andrew here and there the Burgundians seem to have been quite a colourful army over all.
