The Battle of Arsuf done with Hail Caesar rules at Adepticon 2015. A glorious battle with a full table of 8 players.
The game was a close run affair taking up the full three hours. After many lost units on both sides, the Hospitallers were lost & Saladin’s bodyguards were driven from the field, ending the battle in a draw.
A pair of Crusader leaders. On the left is a Perry Brothers 1st Crusade figure from the command set. On the right is a Trent Miniatures figure (listed as King John (Bareheaded), painted in Hospitaller black and white.
The green & red shield is painted using Foundry paints. I picked up a small number of bottles off of Ebay and rather like the very opaque coverage the line provides.
A full box of FireForge infantry assembled as 1 unit (24) of Hospitaller Spearmen and 1 unit (24) of Crossbowmen. A variety of colors were used in the painting of these units, I wanted to avoid any strict pattern to support the dirty and mercenary background of these troops.
