Al Andalus Christian Cavalry πŸ™‚

One of those projects which is running in the background and gradually gathering more troops. I purchased these unarmoured Norman Knights some time ago (Crusader miniatures) but added a bit of extra colour so they can play as Christian mercenaries.
Think the flag is from LBMS
The improved photos mean you can see my poor paining technique in detail !
This chap came from a show rummage box ages ago and I finally found a spare Gripping Beast horse for him to ride.

I do have a couple of battles to post so will try and get round to loading them up. Lots more on the painting desk I have ordered some more RCW infantry to ‘complete’ the White Army for now anyway I have also ordered some more Al Andalus cavalry. I seem to have a lot of cavalry to paint at the moment so will have to pick on something else......

  2. I like 'em! Always enjoyable to see additions to your Reconquista project. Reminds me that my own project has languished for a long time.
