|Arab heavy cavalry in 28mm, sculpts from Perry Miniatures (and they are AMAZING!)|
|Ready to repel the Frankish invaders!|
These four figures are, once again, from the Perry Brothers incredible 28mm First Crusade collection. They are beautiful sculpts. These four mounted warriors represent one "point" of hearthguards in the SAGA game. These warriors are armed with bows in addition to their lances, so will provide some flexibility for the Saracen player on the table.
|Colourful AND heavily armed and armoured...a challenge to paint, but lots of fun when they are finished!|
I have been griping about painting shields throughout this process, but in this case I was a little smarter with the shields I selected. I made sure I had some flat ones for this group, and that meant I could use the amazing transfers from LBMS on a couple of them. Yay!
|These fellows carry bows as well, a little more flexible in terms of fighting options on the table, I think|

|The Saracen warlord in the middle, surely thrilled to have some warriors to command in his struggle against the Crusaders....|
