    Thanks.

    What do you mean Sigur? Why not bye some from there site?
    I have, ok the actual shipping is handled by Gripping beast but you get them from Musketeers site.
    http://musketeer-miniatures.com/stor...torical&id=23#
    Just click on the Product button to the left for more miniatures.




    I painted some new Turkic horse archers.

    The miniatures are from Perry Miniatures and Gripping Beast but they have switched horses to better mix with my other horsearchers, to create a more unified image.

    Ive just finished some more Lord of the Ring ruins, these are components from two additional boxes.
    After I finished the last box for my gaming club I was given two new ones to paint that was laying around there and collected dust.

    Re: Crusade, Saracen infantry

    Thanks guys.



    Its time to start this project up after a small pause.

    More pictures at: http://kampgruppe-engel.blogspot.se/...iniatures.html



    The miniatures are Conquest games Norman Infantry but two of them have new heads from Warlord Games ww2 Sikh heads http://store.warlordgames.com/collec...igure-heads-24 , the other two have regular heads.
    With some added greenstuff and the right colour pallet I think this could work.

    They are a sort of test batch to see how those plastic miniatures would turn out.

    As you may have guessed these are heavenly inspired from Codstickers excellent work. Thanks.

    You are welcome! BTW, I have a whole bunch of teardrop shields I could send if you like I have no need for them anymore. PM if you are interested.

    Edit: I like the sikh head- beards and moustaches are good.

    Re: Crusade, Saracen infantry

    Big thanks guys.

    Thanks for looking Mrtn.


    Thanks Codsticker, are it those shields from the the Conqest games plastic kits? At the moment I dont need more shields but I will keep it in mind if I do in the near future, thanks for the offer.





    Next up are some Azerbaijani Swordsmen.




    More pictures at: http://kampgruppe-engel.blogspot.se/...swordsmen.html


    The Azerbaijani Swordsmen miniatures from Perry Minatures was the base for the unit but I have included some Warlord Games plastic Celts with new shields and some greenstuff mustashios and such as well as one Mahadist uprising plastic miniature from Perry. These were mostly for fun, I wanted to try out how well they would intermix.

    I think works great and to expand this unit in the future I will definitely ad more of Warlords Celts.


    I know nearly nothing about the Azerbaijani Swordsmen but with those nice Turkic mustashios and bare torsos I will use them in my Ayyabid Egyptian army in Hail Caesar as a sort of Turkic mercenary unit with the Ghazi fanatic stats (religious fanatics) as I think that will be the most fitting.

    No they are actually a mix of Musketeer miniatures muslim flat bottom and teardrop shaped shields. The flat bottom ones are perfect for the middle eastern muslim troops.




    Next up are some Azerbaijani Swordsmen.
    I was eyeballing some of those- I was thinking of using them in my LoTR Haradrim army. Your Warlord conversions mix in very well with them.

    Very nice army concept, I especially like the basing. It looks very unique and realistic. I'm looking forward to seeing more.

    Re: Crusade, Saracen infantry

    Big thanks.

    A small update. Some casualty markers.

    http://kampgruppe-engel.blogspot.se/...asualties.html





    The cavalry one comes from Conquest Games plastic Norman Knight box but with an headswap from Perrys plastic Mahadist uprising box.
    The other one is straight from Perrys crusader range.

    The different manufacturers look very natural together.

    Thanks Codsticker.


    Latest unit, a new unit of Mamluks for my Ayyubid army.

    Many more pictures can be found at: http://kampgruppe-engel.blogspot.se/...d-mamluks.html



    Enough to make a small unit of Mamluks in Hail Caesar or to mix with my previously painted Mamluks to make a "standard size" unit.

    love the paint-work on those shields, especially on the franks and latvians. it makes them look more 'woody' and battered.
