Spearhafoc Castle - The army

This army is based on the Crown minifigs of the Castle theme. The blue color scheme is just my favorite. Together with some newer shields, helmets, arms, pants etc... I have tried to come up with a organized early to mid-medieval European army.
About this creation

What is an army without some decent knights/heavy cavalry? There are 5 of them. Since the knights are equipped with plate armor they do not fit the "European early to mid-medieval" description. Since, to my knowledge, this type of armor would not become widespread in Europe until 1100-1200 AD. Underneath the body armor they all have a mail vest (LBG arms) and the blue checkered castle tunic.



Light cavalry is irreplaceable when it comes to patrolling borders and old-fashioned skirmishes with robbers and such. Their outfit is based on the Castle theme scale mail. The LBG arms represent a chain mail vest whereas the dark brown pants are representing leather leg protectors. All are equipped with a nice and warm cape and a round leather coated wooden shield.



The army holds 20 man-at-arms. Again the Castle theme scale mail is used which are also combined with LBG arms to represent a chain mail vest. The dark brown pants represent leather leg protectors. Next to a round leather coated wooden shield they wield a short sword.



Every army is in need of some archers. Next to the Castle theme scale mail they are equipped with dark brown arms representing a leather vest. The LBG pants are supposed are used to function as chain mail leg protectors.



To man the walls and gates Spearhafoc Castle I created 20 custom guards. They are all wearing the Castle theme crown logo torso which is supposed to represent a tunic. Underneath the tunic the guards wear a sand blue cloth shirt; therefore I gave them sand blue arms. The LBG pants are again used to function as chain mail leg protectors. The guards carry short spears next to the commonly used round leather coated wooden shield.



This is the army which defends Spearhafoc Castle and its surrounding lands.

Last but not least; a sneak preview of a wall segment. Notice the inverted key hole embrasure, which is, to my knowledge, a first on MOCPages/LEGO in this design. This kind of circular hole was actually not used until the introduction of the musket and therefore does not fit the time frame I had in mind for the castle. Nevertheless, I'm going to use this design, since I think it just looks great ;)

Quoting Kamphuuzz . That's quite a nice army you've got there. Looks really got. I just love the way you've made that wall. I don't think this has been done before. Looks really good!! Keep up the good work!
I'll try to keep up the good work... Before I can continue on the castle itself, I'll need to save up a bit. As for the wall... The brick technique has been used before. I got my inspiration from Luke Watkins. However, to my knowledge, the embrasure design is a first
