Wow, these are excellent!  I'm not familiar with the "Crescent & Cross" version of SAGA, but would Crusaders work?

First Corycos' city militiamen and their veteran commander.








P.S. Got a new phone - totally dissapointed by its camera. Need more skill with it...

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...).

Very impressive.  Information is hard to come by, have you come across any good sources you could recommend?

Miraculously, I've got a chicken pox! Being 27 years old, that's an achievment...

On the bright side, I have a lot of free time, so, here we have rural armenian archers WIP.





to georgec:

Unfortunately, never ever seen any useful compilation about cilicians. For a visual source try to search for XIV-th century armenian icons and frescoes (quite a lot of them in the web) - sometimes they show interesting details.

Chicken pox? I think at 27 you actually have to try to catch it. lol
Seriously I hope you heal quickly.
And those archers are looking pretty nice, looking forward to seeing them painted.
