First Few El Cid Spanish - Work in Progress

I've been working away at the Christian Spanish for the El Cid Campaign Day that Tom and I are running in October.

I've decided that the best way to get these done is to start off with a four-point Saga war-band and add figures from there.

The figures are all from the Perry Miniatures - First Crusade range. They are lovely figures, but I'm rather concerned that the bridles do not have a strap over the end of the horses nose. I've already started adding some green-stuff straps to the next lot that I am currently preparing.

So far I have an Infante and two sets of four Caballeros that just need some finishing off and the bases doing.

Next up on the painting table, being base-coated are eight Peons.



As you can probably guess I'm trying to tie the force together with red and yellow shield designs.

  3. Lovely!!! I really like The shield pattern on the second from top cabellero..and good idea using overall yellow and red shield patterns...great stuff..it´s making me rethink using my HaT El Cid figs for generic crusaders and instead going for a proper El Cids army
    Cheers

  4. Thanks for all the comments.

    I've done a little more work on the Caballeros and the first eight Peons are done too. I'm just awaiting the order of bases for them from Warbases.

    Paul, I took a look at your HaT El Cid just the other day, very nice.

  5. Very nice, Paul! That colour scheme looks oddly familiar.. ;-)

    Looking forward to seeing the rest of it come together.
