El Cid: Mission Accomplished



Today I finished off the last few models for my El Cid Christian Spanish.

Just before Hot Lead at Gripping Beast I completed my unit of Catalan Mercenary Spearmen, but did not get around to taking any photos of them, so here are three shots of the 21 Mercenary Spear. All these models are from the Perry Miniatures First Crusade range.

I also finished off the last three cavalry figures two suitable as Caballeros or Caballeros Hildagos and one suitable as Caballeros Villanos or Jinette

There was a Foot Captain and Standard Bearer remaining from one of the command packs.

I also used up some spare kite shields and a pack of Muslim Dead and Wounded to make up some casualty markers for when we start playing 'Hail Cid', our 'Hail Caesar' variant for this period.

And finally, I may have failed a bit on my 'No New Projects' promise as yesterday I acquired about 150 Gripping Beast Almohavids. Here is a spare Perry Miniatures casualty figure that I have done as tester.
