The Turcopoles were first encountered by the Crusaders during the First Crusade while fighting for the Byzantines. These auxiliary cavalry were recruited from mixed Greek and Turkish origin, but later (when employed by the Crusaders) were probably recruited from converted Seljuk Turks or Christian Syrians.
Painted here to depict troops fighting with the Teutonic Order in the Northern Crusades.
Priced at £9.00 GBP for three figures, including horses, shields and weapons (where appropriate). The officer comes with a separate right hand with several weapons options, including sword, spear, bow and axe.
