Saracens !

I finally made a start  painting my (large) Crusader armies. In all fairness, I had the horses painted by my painters at MMPS when they still were working for me and that made all the difference. I really hate painting large numbers of horses so I always had this project on hold  as Crusader and Saracen armies contain large numbers of cavalry of course.  Can’t use this as an excuse anymore so here we go. 🙂

It’s a basic paint job with a Vallejo Soft Tone wash and Little Big Men decals and I KNOW, these Saracens are not historically correct but I can’t be bothered by that.  I want large numbers of them on my table and I want them fast so this is how it has to be.
