CRUSADES

crusadescover-800x600.jpg

The Crusader state has been long been in a period of decline. The city of Acre stands alone as the last bastion of Crusader power in the Holy Land.  Defended by the Military Holy Orders and various allies, Acre has  now come under siege by the powerful Mamluk armies lead by Sultan Khalil.  A fierce struggle ensues and the result is the final collapse of the Crusader State.  First Legion is proud to present our lastest figure range, the Crusades! Our initial focus is the Siege of Acre in 1291 and will feature knights of the Templars, Teutonic, and Hospitaller Holy Military Orders along with their European allies and even the forces of Henry the II of Cyprus, King of Jerusalem.  Famous personalities such as Grand Master of the Hospitallers Jean de Villiers, Marshal Matthew de Clermont, and the Templar Grand Master Guillaume de Beaujeu to name but a few will represented fighting a stoic defense against the unstoppable power of the Mamluk forces arrayed against them.  The range will also bring to life the great armies of the Mamluks who dominated the holy land in the 13th Century.  From simple soldiers to great siege engines to personalities,  First Legion will cover in detail a seldom studied army which was one of the most successful in military history.
