Lego Teutonic Knights
Some mini-figs I included in my Teutonic Fortress. Decalcs made by me. Notice the General's decalc: it's my favourite!
About this creation
The Order of the Teutonic Knights of St. Mary's Hospital in Jerusalem is a German Roman Catholic religious order. It was formed to aid Christians on their pilgrimages to the Holy Land and to establish hospitals to care for the sick and injured. Its members have commonly been known as the Teutonic Knights, since they also served as a crusading military order during the Middle Ages. The membership was always small and whenever the need arose, volunteers or mercenaries augmented the military forces.

READ THIS!

Formed at the end of the 12th century in the Levant, the medieval Order played an important role in Outremer, controlling the port tolls of Acre. After Christian forces were defeated in the Middle East, the Order moved to Transylvania in 1211 to help defend Hungary against the Cumans. They were expelled in 1225 after allegedly attempting to place themselves under Papal instead of Hungarian sovereignty.

Following the Golden Bull of Rimini, Grand Master Hermann von Salza and Duke Konrad I of Masovia made a joint invasion of Prussia in 1230 to Christianise the Baltic Old Prussians in the Northern Crusades. The knights were then accused of cheating Polish rule and creating an independent monastic state. The Order lost its main purpose in Europe, when the neighbouring country of Lithuania accepted Christianity. Once established in Prussia, the Order became involved in campaigns against its Christian neighbours, the Kingdom of Poland, the Grand Duchy of Lithuania, and the Novgorod Republic (after assimilating the Livonian Order). The Teutonic Knights had a strong economic base, hired mercenaries from throughout Europe to augment their feudal levies, and became a naval power in the Baltic Sea. In 1410, a Polish-Lithuanian army decisively defeated the Order and broke its military power at the Battle of Grunwald (Tannenberg).

Quoting Architect of Mythica Interesting minifigures. I am suddenly inspired to make an MOC depicting the Battle of the Ice; http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_the_Ice , showing just how much PWN-age the Russians of Novgorod gave the Teutonic Knights. ;)
There's already one on Mocpages. But good luck, anyway!

Great job, I don't know how you've done it. I agree with you, the general is the best fig, but my favourite is the flag. Very detailed. And thank you for commenting on my stuff, cheers!
