Saga Crescent & Cross: Knights Templar

Nachdem Doc in letzter Zeit Sarazenen ohne Ende gerüstet hat, war es für Michi eine Frage der Ehre nachzuziehen und ein paar Tempelritter zu bemalen, damit das Heilige Land nicht den Schergen Saladdins allein überlassen bleibt.
Due to Docs efforts to paint countless Saracens during the last weeks, Michi was urged to catch up and deployed a few knights Templar in an attempt to let the Holy Land not remain in Sultan Saladdin´s hands.

SAGA Crescent&Cross: Minature Painting Video

The video shows an example of how I currently paint the Saracens. I hope you like the little insight into the way I work.

SAGA Crescent & Cross: Saracen Foot Soldier

To defend the Holy Land against the European invaders (and because of Michi wants to lead the crusader faction), I decided to go for the saracens. There are eight foot soldiers in the army box, all of them are based and primed now and the first one is ready for combat.
The saracen bases should look like sand or dried-up desert, so I use the crackle effect technique again (described earlier in this blog, see this link).

SAGA: Mounted Scot Hearthguard

During the last battle between Michi and me, my Scots suffered from their lack of mobility. So it was time for an upgrade. Two done, two more to go.

Update one day later: Finally completed the mounted Hearthguard.

The bard´s song


Now You all know
The bards and their songs
When hours have gone by
I'll close my eyes
In a world far away
We may meet again
But now hear my song
About the dawn of the night
Let's sing the bard´s song

Tomorrow will take us away
Far from home
Noone will ever know our names
But the bard´s songs will remain
Tomorrow will take it away
The fear of today
It will be gone
Due to our magic songs

There's only one song
Left in my mind
Tales of a brave man
Who lived far from here
Now the bard´s songs are over
And it's time to leave
Noone should ask You for the name
Of the one
Who tells the story
(Blind Guardian)

Two bards for SAGA who will accompany Michis Norman warlord either when deployed mounted or on foot. They will tell of his victories and sing of his glory from now on...
Zwei Barden für SAGA, welche als Begleiter die Heldentaten von Michis Normannenanführer besingen werden, wenn er in Zukunft beritten oder zu Fuß zu seinen Abenteuern auf dem Spieltisch erscheinen wird...
