    My enthusiasm for Ager Sanguinis Crusades Rules continues and I’ve written a blog post about it with lots of pics.  Most of my toys for this are years old and from Outpost Wargames Services they were designed on the advice of Brendan Moyles who wrote Shattered Lances and are deemed to be very accurate depictions of the combatants.  I’ve also invested in some new figures from Legio Heroica and Museum and they all fit together nicely enough.  There is something about reviving a project that is very satisfying.

    Here are some Franks first knights first and Templars second.

    I love the colors you’ve used, really gives them a lot more life than just plain old metal colors.  Good stuff sir!

    A beautiful selection of figures, thanks for sharing.  Brings colour to these two books I am reading by Thomas Asbridge.

     

    This ones an excellent read.

    Thanks for the kind words lads.  I’ll add a few pics to this thread of the Sudanese Ghulams soon.

    In terms of books I relied on Runciman’s Crusade trilogy, Smail’s  Crusading Warfare and Duncan Head’s two books on the subject all of which have been around for quite sometime.

    Perhaps Willz you can tell us how you get on with the Asbridge books?

    I read Runciman’s book 30+ years ago and found them a good read.  I have finished “The First Crusade” and “The Greatest Knight” both a very good read, easy reading and informative.  Still reading “The Crusades” again easy reading and informative.

    Willz.
