El Cid Spanish Heavy Cavalry (HaT)

Again, painted up as Norman cavalry. The PSR review correctly places them later than the classical 1066 Norman period..but as my Norman army is ( like all my medieval /dark ages) a generic one..they fit perfectly :-D
 The whole Generic Norman army...as it stands at the moment

  1. You are dfinitely getting there! - I wouldn't worry about getting things precisely to date in this period - no-one knows for sure-and the 'Norman' period is a veeeeery long one - its not just 1066!
    Keep it up mate!
