The Lusignans gather at Acre

Hi gents,

A load of new figures arrived today so I thought I would get the camera out and show you some of the new arrivals. These figures are representing the Lusignan faction who gathered at Acre to support Guy in his bid to regain the Kingdom from the Saracens. Some think he was a bad King losing most of the kingdom after the battle of Hattin. I think he redeemed himself at Acre although he ultimately lost the crown when the locals voted Conrad of Montferrat as the new King.

I am having various factions painted up  these have a mix of the arms of Jerusalem and Lusignan
The figures are from Crusader Miniatures

The castle in the background is games workshop painted by me.

All the figures have been painted by Dave Jarvis
I have still got a bit to do to the bases but thought I should post anyway.

This is just a part of what arrived today so enough for another couple of posts in the near future with pics of some beautifully painted figures!

Best wishes
