Figure identification help - one piece casting cavalry figures

I recently picked up these figures and haven't been able confidently to match them up to listings. Can anyone help? The first figure looks Byzantine/early medieval The second Renaissance or Medieval And the last Eaatern Ancient, Medieval or Renaissance
Any help would be appreciated.

Hundred Years War ranges - photos added

I have been able to add loads of new photos of foot figures in the HYW, HYC, HYP and HYA ranges. I hope to make some progress on identifying the mounted figures I have and then adding photos of these to posts.

Identification help please - Hundred Years War cavalry

I have a number of cavalry figures from the Hundred Years War range and Crecy, Poitiers and possibly Agincourt sub ranges. As they carry no code numbers and there are a number of figures with similar descriptions, I have not been able to identify any of them with confidence, If anyone can therfore identify any of the following figures with any authority, I would be very glad to hear from you via comments. The sixth figure down is holding a sword down his side, obscured by the camera angle - sorry!

Hundred Years War Range

Minifigs produced a number of S Range medieval ranges. The Hunderd Years war range comprised thirteen foot and three mounted figures. There were also sub ranges for the Crecy, Poitiers and Agincourt periods which between them added a further eighteen fooy and twelve mounted figures. The original catalogues I have only list the main Hundered Years War range so the other listings are taken from Vintage 20mil.

HYW 1s Dismounted knight attacking

HYW 2s Dismounted knight defending

HYW 3s English longbowman

This figure can be distinguished from the Crecy longbowman (HYC 6) as the latter has mail and a moustache.

HYW 4s Halberdier

HYW 5s Genoese crossbowman

No picture of this figure is currently available

HYW 6s Welsh spearman

HYW 7s Dismounted knight with battle axe (closed helmet)

HYW 8s Dismounted knight with battle axe (open helmet)
