These spearmen are meant to represent North African allies or mercenaries. They looks a lot like earlier Andalusian spearmen, however by the time Granada was standing alone, spearmen in Muslim Spain resembled their Christian Spanish enemies a lot more; they wore heavy armour and sported broad shields. I wanted to do less complex patterns on these figs. The black dots on off-white tunic didn't work all that well... I won't do it again I don't think.
