I have now taken the plunge to start to collect Crusades in 28mm.
The plan was to try to reuse one or two of my African tribal unit as a sort of mercenary light skirmishing unit for an Egyptian fraction. And the Medieval Swedes I painted previously is planned to be recycled into a western force.
Its great to be able to use one miniature for lots of different settings.
But my first new and dedicated unit for this project is this small unit of Saracen light infantry.
Ive used leftover parts from the Perrys plastic box Mahdist Ansar. The miniatures with most clothing or Arabic headgear and so on that I didn´t think matched what I was after in the Tribal Africa project.
Ithink they will do for starting up this project.

I think they maybe look a little more like Barbary corsairs then Saracen infantry but I think its close enough and its hard to argue with the price of plastics especially considering I got these from the leftovers.
