Gripping Beast recently showed off some of the paint work of Darren Linington on some of their minis, one set of which was two Moorish Mounted Warriors which will soon be released for use in games like SAGA: The Crescent & The Cross…
The Moorish Cavalry, aside from being very well painted, have a good sense of speed and motion to them. They are lightly armed and armoured, which should help them to deal with the heat and conditions of they must face, and easily outflank the armies of the Christian crusaders.
As well as these Moors, Darren Linington gave a unit of mounted knights a lick of paint.
These knights stand in direct contrast to the Moorish cavalry, being heavily armed and armoured. Therefore they lack the maneuverability of their lighter enemies, but their charge will devastate any infantry line.
Which side will you choose in Saga Crescent and the Cross?
"They are lightly armed and armoured, which should help them easily outflank the armies of the Christian crusaders."
