New Military Order Commanders

With my latest campaign of Outremer: Faith and Blood  underway my output of models has increased exponentially. 

Given that in our most recent game my Military Order Warlord (Turcopolier) managed to incur an injury that prevents him from carrying a shield I have had to replace the model that represents him. 

As such I have painted these two figures. The one on the left will be my commander from now on, and when I have a few spare Livres I will give him a banner and then use the fighter on the right.

I really enjoy playing Outremer and watching my warband develop over time. The character development is one of the best bits of the game for me! 

I have a few more games booked in for the next few weeks with my mates so I’m looking forward to seeing how my brave band of fighters performs. Deus Vult.

New Outremer Campaign: Day One

So my best buddy and I got together for the first few games of Outremer: Faith and Blood as part of our latest campaign last weekend. 

This time around we are both playing Military Orders and ironically we are both fielding Hospitaller Knights. 

My force is based on the early years of the Order and so are clad in black monastic robes, whilst my opponent’s Hospitallers are from a later era and so are wearing the red surcoats instead.

New Hospitaller Fighters!

I have spent the last few weeks working on some more Hospitallers for my growing Military Order Force for Outremer.

Now that I have a campaign in progress with a couple of my closest mates I need additional models so that I can swap loadouts between games and also upgrade/replace fighters as needed.

First up I have three new sergeants to provide both some solid melee capabilities and potent ranged lethality in the form of a crossbow.

Whilst sergeants are useful assets it must be said that the heart of all the Militaey Orders are their knights and so I have also painted three new Hospitaller Knight-Brothers.

These are all based around the same 25mm sculpt from Essex Games and so I have used variations in helmet colour and shield iconography to differentiate the fighters.

I really enjoyed working on these individual shield designs and it was really rewarding to see how well they came out!

I have a few games planned tomorrow so I’m looking forward to seeing how these new recruits fair on the battlefield!! Hopefully they will secure me victory in the name of God and The Hospital!
