Crusaders in Middle East, 12th century AD

Hi! Today, a few pictures related to the medieval Crusades in the Middle East.
If you follow that blog, you probably already saw my Templar Knights at fight with Ayyubid Ghulams.

This time I chose to paint an old reference - Italeri Crusaders. Do you remember them ?

Let's begin with the knights:



The third mini on the right is a Strelets Turcopole


The Italeri knights are nice figures with interesting details, but not very accurate. The heraldry patterns are engraved on the minis, which is a problem when you have several times the same poses, because you're not supposed to see the same knight several times on a battlefield (or anywhere else) !

I tried to cut off the pattern of the white and red (Argent et Gueules) knight, but it is rather difficult, and the result is not as good as I wanted.

I also painted two men at arms on foot:






Still a lot of work before I have a complete DBA army :)

  7. Very nice! Knights are difficult because of the heraldry so I liked the Italeri, but you are right-no two should be the same.
