Templar Foot Soldiers

Good evening (well it's late in France :)).

I recently bought a set from the Crusader period by Strelets - Military Order Warriors. I wanted to paint some of them as Templar foot sergeants, an addition to my DBA Late Crusader army.

Here you are four of these men - enough figures to represent one DBA element. I really appreciate these minis, they are perfect to represent a defensive line, and the black and white shield of the order is nice (and easy) to paint.

Let's show them. The first pictures were taken with a dark background, so that the contrast is not too strong, we see the details rather well.




Next pictures are an attempt to show the minis as if they were in action in the Middle East - good weather, but dusty sky. The foot soldiers are operating together with the knights of the order.




I am quite happy with the result, each man differs from the others but they look like they form a unit. What do you think of it ?

  2. They look great and are very good as a shield wall. Lots of character too.

  6. Nice figures phil, i think working on shields is a ver simple and effextive way of achieving uniform "unit look" in medieval troops ego are very individual. I believe in this case that Order of Temple would be able to equipy its foot troopers at léast with regular shields

    1. Thank you Sceavus. Yes, the shield pattern is very simple but interesting in a shield wall, I need a few more guys to have an interesting effect. For ordinary men, I would not paint them as uniformed, but they are templars.
