If you follow that blog, you probably already saw my Templar Knights at fight with Ayyubid Ghulams.
This time I chose to paint an old reference - Italeri Crusaders. Do you remember them ?
Let's begin with the knights:
|The third mini on the right is a Strelets Turcopole|
The Italeri knights are nice figures with interesting details, but not very accurate. The heraldry patterns are engraved on the minis, which is a problem when you have several times the same poses, because you're not supposed to see the same knight several times on a battlefield (or anywhere else) !
I tried to cut off the pattern of the white and red (Argent et Gueules) knight, but it is rather difficult, and the result is not as good as I wanted.
I also painted two men at arms on foot:
Still a lot of work before I have a complete DBA army :)
