Order of St Lazarus

Not a made up order of Hospitaler knights but one of the oldest of them. I only found out about them after seeing a wonderfully  painted model of one by Dimitris from Figure Painter blog.   
The Valdemar bods had been lying about  in my collection for a while and a duel with Pascal was a good chance to use them.
The history of the lazarus Order is very interesting..more reading here   and   here
I over did the "dust" effect on the shields..needs correcting
Just a quick one today..hello´s next time..well it is the 25th

  9. Fantastic atmosphere and top notch painting!!!
    Did the hospitallers have green cross? I thought always they had a white cross on black ground?
    White ground with green cross was the Order of Saint Lazarus, or wasn't it? I am not sure..
    Anyway, i love 'em :)
