Almoravid Moors - Berber Spearmen












Following on from my last post, here are some Berber spearmen for my Almoravid Moors. All of these figures are from the Gripping Beast plastic set Arab Spearmen and Archers, with LBM shield transfers. In terms of the new Saga supplement, The Crescent and the Cross, these are two units of warriors, although I may run some of them as Black Guard, who count as Hearthguard. I've painted them all with cane spears and most have the litham Arabic for 'veil' - hence al-mulathimun 'the veiled ones'. The photos below show the same figures in a mixed spearmen and archer unit on a movement tray for Hail Caesar.

    1. Thanks Colin, they are nice, also easy to paint and glue together. We've got a Saga comp today, so I'll see how they go.
