Medieval fight training

Knights weren´t Born knowing how to fight and had to be trained in the finer arts of disabling an Opponent. A set of Trainees and Trainers sculpted by Alex and produced by Valdemar.

The whole set.
 Young sirs practising. I painted the swords up as wooden ones.
 The lower orders practised archery.
Sword master. Hs Sword appears a bit bent but that´s due to the Picture. The stick is for administering "correctional advice"
A featrure or modern medieval fairs, Knock your Opponent of the log. I reckon the Clubs are leather bags filled with sawdust. 

 With this lot, my medieval civilian collection has topped the 200 mark..203 to be exact.
112 Adult Males, from that 16 Monks/priests and one Bishop
53   Adult Females.
38   Children, from babes in arms to "Teens"

I could add  another 80 plus, but 20 or so are based in dios or  they are town guard types or taking part in the Military convoy so not strictly civilians.
