More Almoravid Berbers



With the addition of these combined spear and bow Berber units I now have enough units to field a Basic Impetus Almoravid army which is quite nice! However, I  plan to grow the army further as my opposing Spanish Christian army is already quite large and the Almoravids will need to grow to match them which will of course open up even more gaming possibilities.  As we all know armies are never really finished are they.




These Berbers were painted using the same earthy palate as the rest of the army with some green to tie them altogether. The shields and banner were hand painted to keep the look I wanted. The figures themselves are a mix of Artizan and Gripping Beast with done with AP and added highlights.



I have more Almoravids on the way, but I think some horse and musket might creep in between first, but I'm not sure yet.



The friendly side challenge(Bavarian Challenge)between myself and Nick in the Analogue Hobbies Challenge is going at a pretty good pace with both of us always remaining within striking distance of each other so I'm pretty curious to see who will come out on top. Anyhow I'm pretty pleased with the pace I've managed to maintain regardless of the outcome as my cabinet keeps getting fuller which feels great.:-)






Thanks for viewing!:-)

  1. Another impressive unit, Christopher. I am always impressed how you highlight - the folds of clothing pop, yet the shading blends in smoothly...it's kind of hard to put into words, but looks great!
