Medieval Bishop WIP

As there were quite a few militant Bishops in Sweden during the 15th century I reccon I had to have at least one commander that are a bishop in more formal derss. So far I have used ordinary Knight commander as the Bishops by all means was high nobility and well educated both in the holy script as well in the use of arms.

This time I wanted a Bishop commander in Mitre and with a Crosier.

I used a Perry WoTR mini that I cut the hat of and added a grenadiere miter from the plastic Wargames Factory WSS sprue.

The Crosier I made from some sort of medieval polearm from Perrys.

In the back of the base I will add two knights on foot with the banners of the Bishop.

  12. Glad you all seems to like the Bishop......maybe not Jonas then as the Swedish Allmoge he most often command will get their fair share of Holy wrath from my new Bishop;)
