El Cid Characters

It's been a week of painting catch-up. I have had this Crusader Miniatures pack of Pedro Bermudez and King Alfonso for at least a couple of years, they had been cleaned up and base-coated and stuck at the corner of my painting table all this time.

I finally got around to doing something with them over the past week, a quick base-coat, wash of Vallejo Sepia and then a couple of highlights and I think they look quite presentable.

The standard and shield designs are not based upon any historical source.

Here are a few more images:

I've also painted a trio of Berber characters to go with the new painting project to fight against the Christian Spanish. A Sheik, Imam and Standard Bearer. Again these were done with a quick base-coat, sepia was and couple of highlights. The standard is done by doing a Google image search for Arabic Poetry to get the flow of the text.
