Saracen archers
#1
Hi all

Looking at getting saracen archers to add to my Norman army to enable them to turn out as an Italo Norman army.

Can anyone recommend figures ranges to buy from?

Mark,

If it's 28mm you're looking for, try the Perry 1st Crusade range; I've got all my SAGA Normans from there - bar a mercenary spear unit in gambesons - so the range is very versatie. The Muslim range has Seljuk archers (mounted - packs MA9 and MA10 - and on foot - pack MA25) and Turcoman archers (mounted - packs MA11 and 12), there's also heavy cavalry with slung bows and mounted female archers.

The Norman/Crusader list has Armenian foot archers (pack CU31) and mounted Turcopoles (pack CU11).

Hope that helps,

I assume that you are after 15mm, Mark. If so the nicest I have seen (pictures only) are Khurasan. Don't know what they are like at shipping though. Also don't know what manufacturer you have already for the main army.

Or you could try Black Hat, Donnington New Era or Mirliton.

Hi Mark,

I'd recommend Legio Heroica mate. Check out the pics here.

Been working on a large commission for a customer and loving the figures. Fit nicely alongside Essex Miniatures, clean castings, well detailed and take a wash.

Cheers,
