Well here is my Army of the Emirate of Sevilla, a SAGA warband to repel Nico's Frankish infidels whether in Al-Andalus or the Holy Land. Aside from the Warlord, Abbad al-Isbili (Abbad I of Sevilla), who is mace armed, the جند الله (Soldiers of God) are all armed with javelins.
The figures are from Musketeer Miniatures and Artisan Design. They are well sculpted, but horribly cast. The Artisan Design figures had the worst mold lines I have come across. Their Berber Javelinmen (they all look like one-eyed mullahs, have a look) and the Berber Light Cavalry horses were particularly bad.
Not withstanding this as a group, I am quite happy with them and am pleased to have them off the painting table.
The 5-point Warband is comprised of a Warlord, 1 unit of Syrian Heavy Cavalry Hearthguard, 1 unit of Armoured Andalusian Foot Hearthguard, 1 unit of Berber Blackguard Warriors, 1 unit of Berber Jinetes, and 1 unit of Berber Javelinmen Levy.
The Andalusian Emirs who ruled the various taifa relied heavily on mercenaries, mostly from North Africa, but also Christian soldiers from Europe.
We will definitely see my Flemish mercenaries in the employ of the Emirate of Sevilla but also maybe some Vikings.
Beautiful work John! Your warlord stand is gorgeous and I love the bewildering variety of colourful shields and banners. Spendid stuff!
This warband of the Faithful will give John 280 points. Well done!
