Medieval Danish Hoast for Lion Rampant #2



Just an easy start for my summer project, during the last week I just have painted the two mounted Men-at Arms to complete the Bybelsbak unit. As all mounted units in Lion Rampant there are 6 minis.


I depict the main character of this unit as the Danish Knight Erik Bydelsbak that was born around 1330 and would have been 31 years old as the Danes invaded Gotland in 1361. If he was in the Danish invasion force he did survive the enterprise as he it told to have died in 1410.


In Lion Rampant a group of Men-at-Arms will cost you 6 of your Points and as you only got 24 points to spend on your Hoast they are a real investment...


...but if you are seeking for something to really beat up your opponents units the Men-at Arms are for you, but be aware that they also are lose cannons as if a enemy unit get within their charge range you have to roll to see if they makes a involuntary charge, and if they don´t you may not move them at all during that turn...
