Kingdom of Jerusalem Mounted Sergeants
« on: May 28, 2020, 04:12:28 PM »

Afternoon fellow gamers,

The recruitment for the Kingdom of Jerusalem continues a pace with a new unit added, as always more pics on the blog link above.

28mm Fireforge Games Mounted Sergeants in a unit of 12, armed with hand weapons. I do like the sense of motion you can get with these Fireforge figures, posing, sculpting and staggering the models on a deep base all help to create that feeling of movement.

Just one more unit, the mounted Knights to go before this little force is done.

What size forces are you planning? Or are you just going to go with the flow?

I am impressed that you think I have a plan  lol

Things here at Yarkshire Gamer tend to get out of hand very quickly !. There are 5 regular players here and with the Crusades Project, Rob has turned up with loads of Muslim Forces whilst Stephen has a Crusades Army so I have concentrated on the bits I want to paint.

At present I have
2 x 12 Military Order Mounted Knights (Hospitaller and St Lazarus)
2 x 12 Mounted Sergeants (St Lazarus and Kingdom of Jerusalem)
1 x 24 Dismounted Knights (KoJ)
2 x 24 Foot Sgts (KoJ and Tripoli)
2 x 24 Crossbow (KoJ and Tripoli)

With 12 KoJ Knights, 12 Gripping Beast Original Templars (cause I love the figs) and 12 Poor Knights to do so I probably need a few more foot and some Turcopiles.

Muslim forces consist of 3 x 12 Heavy Cavalry and 3 x 12 Light with 3 more and a Ghulam unit to paint. 36 Spear and 48 Archer with another 36 Spear to do.  With Robs huge Arab army I'm not sure if I will add to this.

My Crusader Army is the one I'm interested in and my preference for Military Order Knights makes it a bit heavy but I've always wanted a Medieval Army with tons of Knights so I'm having one  lol

It's taken 6 or 7 years to get to this point, I keep getting distracted by other stuff, this time round though I have got a few done.

Nice paint job and they do look like an enthusiastic bunch.
Only 1 medieval period? I’d regard that as evidence of planning and discipline!
