Finally, despite the lack of information and useful images, I decided to start Cilician armenians. Perhaps, they will become my second army for Saga (after I'll decide what battleboard to use...).

These guys represent city garrison of Korycos, local militia and nobility.

First, paron Christophe de Bagramyan, leader of the armed force. Supported by his loyal retainer and city standard-bearer.



Group of 4 armenian knights. In fact, there are only two knights - others are squires of the wealthiest one.



Additional images:





Wandering knight George:

Many thanks, gentlemen  :)  Medieval Cilician armies in 28mm are not a common sight )) I already have little arabian army and wanted to create some unusual adversary. Initial idea was to make some marauding St.Lasarus knights, but after I'd read about cilicians, I changed my mind.

Currently working on some infantry. Footmen won't be so bright - finally, they are mere peasants. On the other hand, medieval images I saw, show armenians in a colorful dress.

Very nice conversions of the Fireforge models, and a very bold painting style. Great colour combinations too. Well done :)

In fact, the idea of using bright striking colors in historical miniatures visited me after I'd seen images of Captain Blood's WotR Yorkists in Extra Impetus III  :)

Fantastic technique! Sign me up for a "how to" video on the conversions and painting!
