These I painted up as part of a group build at Bennos (see here). The idea was to either paint the whole set or just the nine poses. Alterations / conversions were allowed as long as it was within the set ie; no extra bits, nags, bods etc from other sets. I changed all the spears for ones made out of Florist wire and the raised patterns on shields and nags were removed and replaced by printed emblems.
I decided to have them in a desert setting as I have another 30 plus Crusaders etc based as if in the desert and I wanted to add these too them. Anyway...I don´t stick to history when I dont feel like it :-)
