    Perry Miniatures Crusaders

    Hey does anybody, by any chance, have a picture of the Perry Crusaders compared with Bretonnians? Also, do the Perry Cavs come in boxes of 3 or is it one per box? I am thinking of using some of them as Yeomen (which should work perfectly if they are a bit smaller, lesser horses etc). Any information in this regard would be helpful.

    the perry agincourt to orleans range mounted sergeants are excellent looks wise for representing yeomen, I can't comment on scale, however they look to be appropriately sized stature wise in comparison to knights.

    They are OK when it comes to size, they wont look right next to the normal metals, because they are a tiny bit smaller, but they are in the same style (the Perrys sculpted the mounted yeomen models, too!). They'd look fine in the same army, but in the same unit they would just look like kids or teenagers (which may be fine by you, IDK).

    If you use all Agincourt to Orleans minis, the keep the horses, otherwise they'll look odd if some of your Yeomen are on big horse and some are on small.

    and the Perry website has an answer on you how many to a box question (its 3).

    Yep, those are the ones I'm going to (eventually) get for my yeomen. No way I'm paying GW prices, before or after any increase, for them.

    Thanks. I would only use the Perry ones as Yeomen, not mixed.

    Re: Perry Miniatures Crusaders

    Quick question: Which ones will would be better as Yeomen?

    Option1: Sergeants (Like these even though they are a bit too armored)

    Option2: Turcopoles (Much less armored, but might not fit as 'Western' soldiers)

    Option3: Hospitallers (Rather Knights but the lack of ornaments might make them suitable)

    I would say the Sergeants as they pretty much match the current ones, after that, possibly the Hospitalliers as the Turcopoles look far to Eastern (unless your going for that look)

    FWIW I have a bunch of the White Armour - Men at Arms I'm painting up and they are really lovely figures

    Fair arguments. I think I will go with your advice of Sergeants. They indeed look the most fitting. I was too focused on the Crusades range. Thanks.

    Sergents. Are almost the same current Mounted Yeomen.
