Victrix – normannische Kavallerie – Render #5
Here are the renders for the 5th Norman cavalry figure.This figure wears scale armour and has an assortment of helmet, shield and weapon arm options. These figures can be used as Normans, Spanish, Andalusians, Early Crusades and other European nationalities.There is one more figure to do after this and a few extra head and shield options and then it is done and ready for the tooling layup and then tooling stage.Scale armour was not as common as chain but was worn and so the 6 figure body frame will contain 4 in mail and 2 in scales. It is interesting to look at the Bayeux tapestry and the way certain types of armour are depicted. The mail armour is easy to identify as it is depicted as circles. Quilted armour is depicted either in squares or diamond patterns, but a few and in particular on the depiction of Bishop Odo has triangular patterns for his armour. Some think this may be quilted armour but if that was so why not depict it as the square or diamond pattern? It looks very much like a crude way to represent scales. Some Italo Normans have been depicted in scales and there are mosaics and illustrations depicting scale armour from the early 11th Century up into the 13th Century. Hopefully that will raise some friendly and good natured debate.
