    Re: Crusade, Saracen infantry

    Thanks Mrtn and Sigismund



    With that latest unit painted I thought it was time for a new armyshot.

    Im missing the African skirmishers as they were in the basement at the moment of photoshooting.

    Big thanks Mrtn.
    Its nice to see what can be achieved when you really focus on one project.


    Last week we played another crusading game of Hail Caesar.

    As my collection still is rather small or spread out we used "small" units.
    As the armies weren't evenly matched in points we gave the Latin force some ruins to shelter in and a special rule of needed to hold out a number of turns rolling a dice for the game to end after this number of turns, the actual number of turns before they where allowed to roll that dice and the number on that dice have totally escapes me now.
    And they where given two monk miniatures on foot, any foot units they are joining are given the stubborn rule (reroll one moral dice).


    More pictures and the report can be found at: http://kampgruppe-engel.blogspot.se/...usade-aar.html


    And here are some of the Pictures.








    A thought that occured to me is that the Heavy cavalry formations in "small size" games of Hail Caesar are a killer. To better balance the Heavy cavalry I Think I should move up to standard sized units.

    Latest unit. A small unit of Saharan light horse.
    I really like the dark blue on this unit.
    The miniatures are from Gripping beast but the spears are actually plastic broomstick straws.

    Yeah they look great. The blue looks very good. Inspired by the Tuareg I painted Haradrim in similar colours.

    For many years now I have been keeping a eye open looking for rocks suitable to be on my table top.

    Awesome! Once you have assembled and painted some a little review would be nice.

    Re: Crusade, Saracen infantry

    Thanks guys, truth be told only two of them are ment for me. The other two are for are friend.

    The initial feeling is good. I think there are a good mix of bits even thou I would have liked more bows and some extra bags or spare bits to hand on the miniatures.
    I plan to mix these with metal miniatures to make up units in the future and think they will look nice with some paint on them.

    But first I have some half finished miniatures on my painting table that will have to be finished before.

    New unit of Turcoman mercenaries in the service of the Egyptian sultan.

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



    The unit is a mix of Perry miniatures and Gripping beast. I switched the horses to create even greater mix.
