Posted by: Crested Owl French men at arms and not military police. There is a Warrior title on Tudor Knights and I think an Elite or Warrior on French men at arms of 16th century would be very nice. In that case, also, I'm pretty sure that Graham Turner could do an exellent job on knights in shiny armor.

i think this is a very good idea. There's not much Osprey between the Hundred Years War and Louis XIV.

Besides their splender, I heard they were quite effective when cooperated with Swiss pikes in Italian wars. I think they were not just obsolete after all at least to some point during the 16 century.

French Armies of the Hundred Years War was my second book (Essential Histories "The Hundred Years War" was the first). I would like to see the plates of such a book. If you want to know a little more about the French in Italy, here are two videos: Bayard - The Knight without Fear https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tMCxOeogjkg FRENCH FURY - The 1st Italian War https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jmgrv58jRXs

You are welcome. I would like to see something about Pavia and the siege against Bayard as well.

I would love to recommend the other members to have a watch of the videos for which Amaral posted the links. These are visully beautiful and the music suites well. I am not asking for support, Just here's some good stuff.

Have obtained and am reading French Musketeer. Good read so far and excellent artwork. A book on the early Gendarmes would slot in neatly ahead of this. Has Osprey considered a detailed individual study of all the French royal guard regiments in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries? Comments please.

Seconded! I hope to see a Osprey book dedicated to French Gendarme from years. Unfortunately, Osprey seems particulary deaf from this ear ;)....

I think everyone would be interested to know that I suggested this topic for them, and you can vote on it as one of the choices for the next vote on the current blog post. So if you want this to happen I'd say check out the blog post

The dress is extremely diverse and intricate that, dare I say that a French Gendarme tile would best be served as a two part release in the Elite series. The Gendarmes of Fornovo were very different from those that fought at Pavia and likewise for those that fought later. Having it all rolled into one would be very much akin to having an Elite title on the British Infantryman covering the 1914 to 2000AD...
