Excellent! I'm definitely nicking that Aragorn idea  :D
Well I've lead an evil life, so they say, but I'll outrun the Devil on judgement day.

Be my guest ;) He is one of the few metal miniatures I have found with a full habit that would fit the crusades

I,ll watch this project with interest , one of my favourite periods . What skirmish rules will you use ?    I would go for Lion Rampant , or a variation of them .

There is also the new Outrider rules from Osprey for the 'small skirmish' - but not sure how good they are. :)

This is really nice - and ambitious. Watching this with interest  8) 8) 8)
I came for the scenery, but the troops are nice too - and the Aragorns worked well.

The GW LoTR has a lot to offer. I have a few more in the works  ;)

Spent the day drybrushing walls and finalizing some more miniatures and the cog. The harbour is still WIP and will get a wooden jetty like in Knightfall. I also need to add a lot of ”clutter” to make it look a bit more realistic. The Cog is a Russian paper model that is quite ok in size. Not bad for 8 USD me thinks  :)
I must also produce some kind of backdrop. For this WIP shot I managed to pressgang an (un)willing assistant to hold a blue sheet to avoid having the garage in the background. To fill the scene I will need quite a few civilians and casualties. Maybe also some smaller boat. Any ideas for sourcing seated medieval miniatures?

This is a fantastic thread.  That boat is first class and at only 8$US a real bargain.  Looking forward already to the next installment.

It continues to be coming out great! So are your figures! Well done!
The cog is very nice, this company makes interesting stuff!
When all this place will be filled with clutter here and there, it will suddenly spring into life! Keep up the good job!
