Mounted Men-at-Arms in Chainmail Armor (Black Steel color) makes 5 figures.

The set contains 5 model soldiers plus 5 horse models, comprising of 1 knight-officer and 4 mounted men-at-arms in two tactical postures; charging and advancing in support. The heads and arms are interchangeable to enable the assembly of different postures. We have designed this set to be supplementary to our existing HYW sets based on 14th Century battles. By that period, the more affluent warriors would have coat-of plates armour in addition to chainmail for added protection. However, the non-aristocratic sergeants and armati are less affluent and chainmail would be more common among them although these would be more complete with coif, mitten and chauses. The Hospitaller Order has a significant presence in England. The Maltese Cross, White on a Red or Black field is part of the Hospitaller Order while the Teutonic Order’s Cross is Black on White. Cavalry shields are generally smaller in size from the infantry shields. We have provided the same shield design for both horse and foot soldiers. The shields in this series bear the insignias of the military orders: Hospitaller, Templar, Teutonic and Common Crusader. They can be mixed or assembled to form banners, small military units, from the military orders. These shields can also be used with our existing sets (HYW series) to assemble forces of the various Orders.

Due in September 2022.
