My more colorful unit of knights.

Some of them are my converted Perry Miniatures knights mixed with the Perry’s Holy Order/Hospitaller Knights.

The ones without hoods and sleeve-less surcoats are my conversions. I think this unit of knights turned out pretty good. I was attempting to get them out of the First Crusade in the 1090s, into more of the late Second and Third Crusades.

I also played around a bit with color schemes, make some of them Knights of Jeruselem, some Ibelin color schemes, Franks, English, and Spaniard themes. Note some of the kite shields are actually GW High Elves shields from their foot infantry, that made conversion of the shields much easier.

I'm extremely happy with the way the horses turned out. I really wish that the Perry's someday convert some of their horses to give them caparisons, because its a lot of work to do. The musician horse is kind of a miscast, but it does have a very dynamic look to it.

I do want to be able to play these guys across alot of periods and from the Iberian Pennisula all the way to the Holy Land. So there you have it for now. That is it for my WAB knights for awhile. I will come back to them later this year.

You think that they are only "pretty good"? Quite an understatement there, they are very dynamic looking unit. Not only the horses, but the whole bunch looks awesome, just like the unit movement tray as well.

Hopefully we soon get to see lots of Crusader era goodness from you PPC.

Thanks. This is about it for now. The next batch of knights will be some Conquest Games plastics, and I'm going to wait until there Norman infantry comes out, probably the first part of next year. I have about 1000 points of Crusaders. This like my warriors of chaos will be an ongoing project.

My next WAB project will be Danes, I want a 2000 point army of shield wall, and I even have a Viking Longship for eyecandy.

I had totally missed the Conquest Games and their products so many thanks for the info. Bookmarked their page for future shopping.

2000pts of Danes. That's going to be quite a shieldwall smile.gif I have been thinking about making some Norwegians myself... that plastic Viking ship almost made me place an order but (un)fortunately I remember my other still ongoing projects that are way beyond their deadlines.

Btw, have you made any special era-related terrain pieces for your WAB armies?

Bro Wease: Their part of the Perry Brothers range of models. The horses are very sexy. The metal castings are fairly good.

LvK: On the Conquest side of things I did a review of their miniatures and some comparison shots. http://psychosispc-themadhouseworkshop.blo...h/label/Reviews

I do plan to mix them in with the Perrys in my army, and I am converting some of them to fit my theme.

My Danes are being built to counter my buddy's Saxons.

As to terrain pieces not yet. I have some parts, but I am hopefully going to move here pretty soon, so they are buried deep in some moving boxes. The Longship is one of those pieces, unassembled. After I move I plan to build a couple tables.

Great review, thanks for it. I guess I need to follow your blog from now onwards. the Perry-Conquest mix does seem to work very nicely scalewise.

Three tables.. for 40K, FG and Historicals, one each? Modular set up or more static terrain with few changeable features?

Definitely a 40k Table.

Definitely a Table for Historicals which can double for Fantasy, just by changing terrain pieces on the table top. I also want to be able to play Napoleonics on it. If everything comes through and I close on this house soon, I'll have a big man cave to fill.

The 40k table I plan to do as modular. The other will be static with interchangealbe terain pieces.

My blog is bit more up to date with all of my projects and some exclusives.

Next batch....Well its taken awhile, but I finally got around painting up my converted knights of the Conquest Games plastic variety.

I thnk they turned out decent. Had fun converting them and the painting was fairly straight forward.

Below is the next pair of knights. The one on the left I have converted, giving him an axe from the Gripping Beast Plastic vikings. I think its a neat little conversion that works well.

Lovely pieces. One thing though, about the horses, now they look bit bolted, I think there's too much white of the eyes showing atm?

Minor thing, and I wouldn't be able to paint the eyes prolly at all but just my 0.02

Thanks. Agreed on the horses, especially noticeable in the magnified view.

Well here is the whole shebang of the Conquest Games unit. Nice minis and they and the conversions painted up well. I think the entire unit turned out well and was a whole lot of fun to put together.

I built a movement tray to match my Perry forces. Together with the Perry stuff they look fine.

I do like how the dynamics of the minis in the front rank turned out.

Heh, good point about the close-up pic, the eyes look really good in the unit pic and seeing them on table-top level it's yet completely different matter.

The whole unit looks fabulous.

So next up is infantry or more cavalry? Any named historical characters coming up?
