    Hello everyone

    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 reading

    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.

    They look like Essex miniatures to me.
