Greetings,

I recently went ahead and started the Bretonnian army, as I got all of the expensive elements very affordably via the 2nd hand market.

Except for the Mounted Yeomen, that is. I need ten of them, and am absolutely unwilling to pay the asking price of 6£/10£ for them, even with 20% off.

I need replacements. Can anyone recommend an excellent and affordable alternative for the MY, in the same scale? Grand Tournament eligibility is not an issue.

The Mounted Squires of Black Tree Design are a last resort. They are pretty shoddy, and would require at least a spear swap, if not a head swap.

Take empire pistoliers and simply add some bret gear/head to convert them. If you have extra men at arm parts that probably the best things to use as the head and spears.

E-bay.

E-bay solves many problems of our hobby!

From the Crusade range, called "Sergeant, poor knight". 7.5£ for three, and they're sculpted by the Perrys so they should fit right in.

Hmm. I am afraid that Pistoliers are right out.
I searched through both the US and UK Ebay - and found no mounted yeomen at all.

As for the Perrys, there seems to be so be some merit in looking into them, it seems. Those models seem a tad too early, the shields especially, though, but perhaps something else in the HYW range?

Keep ´em coming.

Take a look at both Perry and Front Rank's Hundred Years War ranges (and FR's Wars of the Roses) for Hobilars/Coustiliers/Sergeants etc. (lighter cavalry)

If you can't find anything else among ZeroTwentyThree's suggestions then you can always swap the shields out on the cavalry Makaber suggested.

You'll have to check but shields are almost always separate because its difficult to cast them with the model.
