DBA Special - Feudal Spanish

DBA Feudal Spanish III/35/c

An Aragonese Command from Las Navas de Tolosa

Following up on a couple of requests, here are some more pictures of my 15mm Feudal Spanish DBA Aragonese army. The figures are mostly conversions originally done 20 years ago and recently refurbished. There are Essex and Black Hat (Gladiator) figures, mixed and matched with TableTop, Museum, Peter Pig and Outpost. The characteristic Spanish shields are actually Chariot (NKE) Egyptian ones upside down. Flags and banners are hand made ... all the artwork is hand done, mostly inspired by the illustrations in Ian Heath's 'Armies of Feudal Europe', and the famous Cantigas de Santa Maria of the mid 13th Century. Nimble but packing a punch, the army wins more games than it loses. The year is notionally 1212.


THE ARMY ARRAYED 1x3Kn (Gen), 3x3Kn, 2x2LH, 1x3Cb, 2x4Sp, 3x2Ps.

GENERAL (3Kn)
(carrying my interpretation of the banner of St. James, two views)


HEAVY CAVALRY (3x3Kn)


JINETES (2x2LH)

THE INFANTRY CONTINGENTS

1x3Cb

CATALAN SPEARMEN (2x4Sp)

MUDEJARS AND PEASANT SLINGERS (3x2Ps)


WHAT THE ARMY DOES BEST .... ADVANCE!
