15mm 11th Century Norman Army

Posted by Ben Bob on 09 May 2020, 20:59

These are all Khurasan miniatures with a few conversions.
They are not intended for the more famous Norman conquest of Britain, but instead for the adventures in the Mediterranean such as the Italian and Sicilian wars, the Balkan invasions, and the 1st Crusade.

They were pleasant to paint since about 4/5 of their bodies are fully armored. I did spend some more time on the shields which were fun to paint and are really the main thing I see.

Combined with my previous two units, I now have 6 units of cavalry:

The two new heavy cavalry stands:

and two light cavalry stands with javelins and spears:

There are also 4 new infantry elements (spears, swords, and archers mixed in:
Image

This includes 2 stands of genuine Normandy Normans:

One stand of Sicilian/Italian Franks:

And finally a stand of Eastern or German Franks (I forgot to paint the javelin tips :| )

Thanks for looking. The Seljuks will be next.

Very impressive looking Norman army. The shields are fantastic, and in 15mm, that's incredible!

Hi Ben Bob,
really nice figures and the painting is very creative. The Shields I find exceptional and also the colouring of the helmets is remarkable. Personally, I would never have chosen such colourful helmets - probably because I don't believe these historic , but when I see your figures I like them a lot.
Inspiring :yeah:
Greetings
Michael
