Bill's FALC Round Three: The Beetle vs. Jackel, A Knight Preparing
A knight prepares to join the Crusade..
About this creation
A knight prepares to embark on a long journey, and packs provisions and weapons onto his horse, as a castle tower looms in the background near a small stream. The knight bears a cross on his shield, common of Crusaders (this would be the 15th century crusades, as he is wearing plate armor and plate armor first started appearing during the 15th century).

Quoting Gilbert Despathens It's a good MOC, but I have to clarify your comment on plate armor. Even the Romans and Greeks used plate armor such as breastplates and greaves including some forms of lamination similar to that of Asian armor, but chain and scale mail took precedence for many years. Plate armor resurfaced with knee pads around the Norman conquest (give or take) and became common as entire suits in the middle of the fourteenth century, although it was typically used in conjunction with chain mail. You are correct that full plate armor without mail is a fifteenth-century feature, though, so I can't complain.
I want to meet you and shake your hand! You get this stuff. Thanks for clarifying, I realized I should have explained more, but unfortunely per contest rules, I couldn't edit it. When I said 15th century I was talking about full plate armor. Of course plate armor existed before, but only during the 15th century were the smiths able to make enough advancement to forge larger, harder plates that could cover enough of a person to allow full plate armor.
