El Cid Almoravid Infantry (HaT)

Finally started work on the Infantry for the Moor army. This lot are th HaT Almoravid infantry with a few conversions.
The flag I got from Tom´s Toy soldiers Blog which he made himself and kindly put up HERE  for everyone to use. Apparently the writing on the flag means "There is no god but Allah, and Muhammad is His messenger" or sometimes translated as 'There is no god but god, and Muhammad is His prophet"
The writing on the shields is completely made up and hopefully doesn´t actually mean anything..
The archers. Nice looking bods but there could have been a few more poses
The conversions. Nothing spectacular, ranging from just swopping a spear for a lance or an arm swop. So far it´s raised the 16 available poses to 22
Hopefully the El Cid Andalusian Infantry set will allow more conversion and the possibility of cross coversion between both sets.
The original pose is on the right of each pic.
