El Cid Spanish Infantry (HaT)

Meant for the wars around Andalusia but I´ve painted the heavy infantry from the HaT set   up as Normans. :-D The light infantry..maybe not the archers..I will use as Saxons.
They aren´t as heavily armoured as the Strelets normans and they fact that the shields are mostly held on the left or right of the body means creating a shield wall with just this set  isn´t really possible.
The Hat bods fit very well alongside the Strelets normans. The fact that they hold the shields to the left or right means they can be used to close up the sides of a block.
