|The start of my Crusaders|
It was, before distraction, my intention to spend the year building up some forces to go Med I Evil on ya all, 3rd Crusade ish to be approximately precise. The thought of some units of heavily armoured Chivalric Cav is enough to get anyone's gaming juices flowing.
Apologies for the dark photos, I just couldn't seem to get the light right on these.
|Fireforge Knights as Hospitalliers|
For my opposition Army I have gone for the Gripping Beast plastic ranges as a method of getting some units on the table at a reasonable cost, in fact some boxes of figures have been donated to the cause making it even more cost effective !
The above base is front the Arab Light Cavalry set.
Next up is my test bases of Arab Archers again from the Gripping Beast plastic range.
Followed by a base of Spearmen from the same set.
Hopefully the Analogue Hobbies Painting Challenge this year will help me blast through some of these so I have enough ready to get some games in around Easter time. I have already built and primed most of the Cavalry I had available so I am already on the front foot for next year's challenge.
