This is my entry into the Casualty bonus round in Curt's Painting Challenge, I hoped I was in with a chance of atop 3 placing with this entry, but looking at the quality of others entries I've no chance. Michael Awdry has stolen the show once again with a simply fantastic entry, its quite sickening really!!!!
Just brilliant stuff!

My Crusader figure is made by Old Glory and is a 12th Century Crusader. I originally undercoated him and the rest of the pack for last years Challenge, but they never made it to the table. So when I had to pick out a casualty figure to paint up, this was my first thought. I'm quite pleased with how it turned out. I toyed with the idea of painting him as a Knights Hospitaller all in black, but chose a white coated Templar instead, but he could be any Crusader Knight really. The arrows are all homemade and were a right pain to make, especially with these little sausage fingers!!! I found the flag online and thought it added a nice flash of detail and colour to the figure, I tried to glue it in place so it looked like he had just let go of the pole, which can only really be visible in the pic below.
So if you haven't already get on over to Curt's blog here and caste your vote or votes on which figures you think are the best, but you've only got until Saturday night, so you better hurry!!!
