Happy new year the Crusades continue

Hi gents,

Happy new year to you all a few pics of the Crusade collection I have now picked up the terrain from TM but will have to wait until I get the lighting right to show this off properly.I did want to show this off before Christmas but after reading about the sad passing of Captain Richards whose blog was one of my personal favourites I couldn't bring myself to post until now I will really miss his creativity.

This small village is part of the large set up,
One of my favourite units of 2014
Villages like this were pillaged at will,
Each side as bad as the other
An appeal for a jihad

The Sultan gave the go ahead to preach the holy war.
Looking for volunteers
Many answered the call
On the horns of Hattin
In 1187 a fatal blow is delivered on the Horns of Hattin
This will lead to the 3rd Crusade
The Carrion have their prey
A huge amount to come this year so drop by when you get a chance
Best wishes


  1. Beautiful figures and a wonderful collection, have a great new year Willie!

  2. Huh, I was going to say that!
    Still, have a good 2015 and more power to your elbow with the collection.

  3. There is action aplenty and many stories to be told in these photos, Willie. Nice!

  4. Happy New Year! And I'm looking forward to more crusade figures!


  5. Wow, that is some top notch work!

  6. Fantastic as always! Great colors, pictures, figures and scenery...we will begin Crusades this year in our club, hope it will look like that! Happy New Year!

  7. Have to say it's great to see a new post from you. The pics are great, as always, and I really can't wait to see your finished Harbor and Walled City of Acre, which I've glimpsed over on the TM Terrain Facebook page, truly come to life with your figures spread across its full expanse. I predict that will be one of the highlights of 2015 as far as Miniature Wargame blogging is concerned.

    HAPPY NEW YEAR, Willie, and thanks for so many wonderful posts!

  8. Always a pleasure to come and visit here . Great stuff as ever..
