Chevalier Bayard, real name Pierre Terrail (1473 - 1524) seems like one of those larger than life figures of history, known as the "knight beyond fear and reproach", though he apparently preferred just "the good knight". He was considered the epitome of chivalry and most skillful commanders of the age. He boasts some rather fine headwear and fashionable mustard leggings.
Iain will be painting King Francis himself. Once based together, they will join Curt's Italian Wars collection. My deepest thanks to Iain for providing the miniature, background and excellent choice of subject for Curt's interests.
And thanks to Curt once again for administering the Challenge - I've not participated as much as I'd have liked this time around, but it's still been thoroughly enjoyable.
