    I don't know about its historical accuracy, but it is really lovely.

    [quote="Tancred"]of the Order of St. John coming down from Mdina for a raid on Marsa.



    Here I am, first and foremost Tancred that is a forefather of our Mdina Cavalry which was composed of Officers from the Hospitaller Order, Tercio arquebusiers and Maltese light cavalry [dejma]. That incident happened in 1565 as Alex guided u up ...

    This figure is a crusader from the mid 13century in the Holy Lands or Kingdom of Outremer. As a basic Ifrir have to say it is not bad, though as usual the artist forgot the beard. Of particular note that this figure has no habit but a surcoat, it is supposed to represent that transit period which was short lived in black, as the ego of the elite Knights did not like to have sargeant dressed like them so they changed to red ... which this boxart would have been much more appropriate, not to comment about the crosses!

    First looks from the images this is one of those few pieces that have to say it is very good historically, I particulary like that the horse caparison is sculpted to depict a light garment and also though somewhat romantic gesture of the heroic figure ... bad that it is another 90mm which will also carry the usual hefty price ... but anyone who likes it besides some small issues I can say that it is a good depiction of a 13c Ifrir ...
