I want to do the Emirate of Bari. Apparently founded by Berber mercenaries turned occupiers. Three subsequent Emirs scoured the South for twenty years. I suppose the dress could be a mix of everything.

I'm not so familiar with the south Italian history, but it seems that in this region different cultures and styles mixed almost the same as that of Al-Andalus. Speaking of miniatures I would suggest to look towards Byzantines too, due to their presence in region at the same time. Maybe there would be something, that will fit your army.

Hi there
Still cannot overcome my lazyness and paint some new miniatures, but finally launched blog of my own:
http://maurenkonig.blogspot.com
I plan to post painted miniatures there as well as some history-related stuff. In other words, even more broken English chattering is coming. Feel free to comment and subscribe.


Although, I've got one newcomer somehow.. :)

Hi there again.
I have absolutely no time to paint something due to work and all that chaos accompanying the last days of the year, but yesterday I finally got my hands on some new reinforcements arrived from Gripping Beast and Saxon Miniatures. I have never held in hands miniatures from Saxon before and I must say that they are awesome.

But the most interesting thing is that the Gripping Beast sent me a miniature that I've never seen before(attached image).
The background is as follows. A friend of mine was in Germany not long ago and bought for me some SAGA packs at Battlefield Berlin. Later we found out that one miniature is missing. Because my friend was already waiting for the plane back to Russia, I decided to send mail to Gripping Beast. To tell the truth I did not expect anything since the purchase was made in German hobby store, not ordered from Gripping Beast site. Furthermore, I did not have miniatures on hands either then or now(they are still in Moscow). What was my surprise when guys from Gripping Beast not only agreed to send me the missed miniature, but also add the one mentioned above.
So, the said miniature reminds me of the main character from the movie "Kingdom of Heaven", but I really never seen this model before. So, can you help me to identify it?

Can't help with the ID, but it's a really cool model!

Yeah, the model looks great, but still remains unidentified.

By the way, the reinforcements are assembled and almost ready to paint.

The dip/wash muting the colours give a nice effect on your models.  :)

Thanks! Its all due to the use of dark red-brown base which I used even when working with such cold colors like blues and greens. It gives nice contrast and impressive looking shadows.
