Light skirmishing horsemen with spears and javelin were a main stay on the battlefields of Granada. They were also perpetrators of raiding that took place back and force between Castille and Granada. I am very pleased with the way these figs turned out, especially the horses. The careful blending paid off. These light horsemen were a common sight not only in Granada and Andalusia, but also in North Africa and the Middle-east during this period (and long before this period), and so they could easily represent both local Granadines or North Africans who have come to aid their brethren in Granada. The figures are from Essex's Crusader Light Horse (CRU18) packs. Tassles were added to the one shield, but otherwise they are as is!
