My little force within an army (Kingdom of Jerusalem within my Crusader Army) grew this week with a second unit of Foot.
I hadn’t posted the first unit on the blog so I put them together. Came out nice as well.
The figures are 28mm Fireforge and I have used Battle Flag transfers for the shields. I did have a bit of a nightmare with one of the two sets I bought. The battle scarred version of the decals especially the all blue ones kept disintegrating on me and I ended up scrapping 40 to 50 percent of them. The none battle damaged decals worked fine, both put on in the same way.
Anyone else had this problem ? I have emailed Battle Flag but had no response to date.
I’m working on some 7tv stuff this week and will be back to the Crusades soon.

Wonderful looking unit.22/04/2020 at 11:30 #135158KenParticipant
UPDATE – Battle Flag have sent me two extra sets of decals to replace the faulty ones, top service, thank you.

Really nice, I just finished doing a Lion Rampant Teutonic Knights Retinue using the same figures, and I especially agree with your comment on the Crossbows – some really mad poses and I took ages trying different arm combos until they looked OK, but when painted up they look AOK
i had a batch of transfers go crumbly on me from another Company completely, I got the feeling it was an age Problem.22/04/2020 at 12:33 #135163Sane MaxParticipant
By the way, really liked some of the Fireforge plastic Knights – Mounted Sergeants in particular22/04/2020 at 21:37 #135189Tony SParticipant
Glad to hear others also have troubles with trying to glue two arms and a weapon. I haven’t tried Fireforge crossbowmen for that yet, but have struggled with muskets and arquebuses!
I always find it surprising how much better figures looks after painting. You think they look odd, but slap some paint on them and everything looks fine.
Although Ken’s figures look much better than merely “fine”. Nicely done!
