Crusader Warbands in Outremer: Faith and Blood

So for my first few posts around Outremer I will be having a general look at the three main forces currently available to players.

We have the Crusaders (or Franks) who can be used to represent the hordes of pilgrims and knights that flocked to the East following Pope Urban's first call for Crusade in the  mid-1090's through to later era forces of soldiers who had grown up in the Holy Land itself. Next there are the Saracens who represent the Islamic Forces who sought the repel the Christian invaders from the Holy Land. ... and finally we have the Military Orders, a compact elite force of professional warriors who were feared across the known world at the time.

This first post will provide a general look at the Crusader faction.

Welcome to the official Outremer: Faith and Blood Blog

Greetings all.

I am the author of a new rulebook that is about to be published by Osprey Games...Outremer: Faith and Blood, which is due to be released on April 19th 2018.

This project has been a labour of love for me and is something that has taken two years of hard work to bring to fruition, but I hope you'll all agree that it has been worth it.
