Taken Prisoner!!

What did William de Huntingfield have at the end of his lance? Two of Saladin´s warriors.
Ok..I haven´t found any evidence that a Huntingfield took part in a crusade but the two bods came with the Valdemar set so they have to make an appearance.
I´m not the worlds best dio creator so I´ve used these two to make up a casualty marker (for whenever I get around to making a Medieval Arabic army)
 
Hello to Steve Hughs...Avatar but your blog link doesn´t connect...

  3. Paul you do some really nice work. If I didn't have so much on my plate I'd be tempted to work with 20mm plastics again just based on your blog.

    Good stuff and thanks for sharing it.

  5. Very good painting as always but I have to admit that the ones at the end are not Turkish warriors.:) because Salahuddin Ayyubi was Egyptian and ruler of Egypt, not Turkish or Ottoman...also Crusades was against Arabs and jerusalem. Ayyubians sometimes fought as a part of Ottoman army long after crusades.Please dont take it offensive, I just wanted to inform you.keep safe...

  11. While it's true that the monarch commonly known in the West as Saladin was ruler of Egypt, he himself was a Kurd and he commanded a multicultural force (though Turks were probably in a tiny minority if they were present at all). So call them whatever you want!
