Lovely job - as a man interested in anything set in the desert I'm quite looking forward to this one.

By the by, lovely painting - minis look great.

Cheers guys! I also love everything desert based so for me this was a labour of love!

As for the minis I decided early on that I wanted to paint every Miniature in he book so it was a real motivator to improve my own painitng standards!

Are there going to be subfactions or similar such as with crusader Templars or Hospitaliers?

Good question. So initially there will be three main factions for players to select their warband from. Crusaders, Saracens and Military Orders, however due to the character generation and progression system you should be able to reflect whatever sub-faction you’re thinking of. Remember the Osprey Games series of books follow a specific format with a set page limit so I had to make sure the rules fitted. My plan is to release sub-factions, new factions, special characters, etc as time progresses via Wargames magazines and the blog.

I've written another post on the game's blog looking at the Military Order faction in Outremer: Faith and Blood:

Hi Guys;

As the game is out this week (those of you who went to Salute night have picked it up early) I will be writing a series of posts going through gameplay and the like on the dedicated blog:

http://outremerfaithandblood.blogspot.co.uk/2018/04/playing-outremer-faith-and-blood.html?m=0

Also there are articles in Wargames, Soldiers and Strategy and Miniature Wargames this month both of which contain new scenarios and new Mercenary characters!! Worth a look!!

what options are about using north barbarians, Baltic pagans, in the Baltic crusades with this ruleset?

Cheers!

Initially the only three factions included are Saracens, Crusaders and Military Orders. Being an Osprey title there is a strict word limit and page count so there wasn’t room for any additional lists.
That being said I’m plannong on doing an expansion and the current forces are customisable enough to accommodate
