The Battle of Agincourt was a major English victory in the Hundred Years' War. The battle occurred on Friday, 25 October 1415, near modern-day Azincourt, in northern France. Henry V's victory at Agincourt, against a numerically superior French army, crippled France and started a new period in the war during which Henry married the French king's daughter and then Henry's son, Henry VI, was made heir to the throne of France.

Add an additional French and English pawn mould to speed up your casting times.
- In addition to filing off any flash from the figure, the bottom should be flattened where the ingate was removed.
- Wash the figure in warm soapy water in preparation for painting.
- Prime the pieces with a white undercoat as many of the colours are light. Allow 24 hours to dry.
- Paint as supplied is usually too thick. Thin with the appropriate thinners until it covers the areas touched by the brush but does not spread to other areas.
- Dry brushing is used to give large areas a subtle blended effects blending the black undercoat with a colour on raised areas. This is also used to add highlights to raised areas giving the look of more depth and animation. Washing is used to add a colour mainly to the folds.
- We recommend that you give the figures a coat of either matt or gloss varnish.
