Have just managed to buy a load of medieval figures at an auction and am trying to identify them.
They are basically a set of mounted jousting knights complete with tents etc, not would I would describe as pro painted but pretty good
Each one is around 44mm from bottom of base of horse to tip of helmet, and a non mounted figure around 35mm.
They are made of metal
I attach some photos and just wondered if anyone knew who made these?
Also does anyone know where I could get some jousting rules for these?
Many thanks for reading29/08/2017 at 14:21 #70623Phil DutréParticipant
I can’t help you with identification of the figure, but there are a few options for jousting rules:
- Crossed Lances, a set that was published a few years back. IIRC, there was also an expansion dealing with archery tournaments etc.
- Warhammer did a jousting expansion “Perilous Quest” for 5th edition
- See also http://realmofchaos80s.blogspot.be/2017/08/games-workshops-lost-games-chivalry.html (esp the comment section) for some recent discussion about tournament games
- When going through my index of wargaming articles (http://snv-ttm.blogspot.be/p/wargames-magazine-database.html), I find:
- A brief history of the medieval tournament, MiniatureWargames 224: A short history of medieval tournaments, and a simple random table for generating heraldic devices.
- Take that, you varlet!, MiniatureWargames w Battlegames 363: Tournament melee game, players bet on multiple knights, everyone can control every knight. Multiple rounds with decreasing number of knights to determine winner.
- Alternative Tournament Rules, WargamesIllustrated 181: Some very simple rules for medieval jousts (sort of rock-papers-scissors system). Some random opportunity cards thrown in to add variation.
