    Sir Percival Thirlwall, standard bearer to King Richard III at the Battle of Bosworth Field in 1485 (Pegaso Models). Legend has it that Percival held the banner aloft even after having his legs cut out from under him. It didn't help the Yorkists in the end, though, as they were defeated and the reign of the Tudors began.
