Following the Medieval European Knights 13th Century from Caeser this lot is the Dismounted crusader set.
Like the European set, this lot make usefull bods as members of the armies of the Anarchy
(the war between Stephen of Blois
and Matilda of England
) Magna carter etc and like the european Kniggits
set, there is only 11 poses, but this time two of which are represented only once.
The biggest Problem, and it seems common to virtually all Ceaser sets, is the bent parts, swords, spears etc even bases. One of the bods in the set was so badly bent backwards at the ankles he looked like he was trying to take part in a Limbo contest ! Ok, this can be solved with hot water treatment but it´s still a pain.
|All 11 poses|
Even though the crosses are very finely engraved I still would prefer none as it Limits the range of uses and covering the crosses is a real pain.

|Another magna carter baron, Rodger Bigod, 2nd Earl of Norfolk. 1144(50) - 1221|
|Both sets together. They mix really well.|
