Armée de DBA 151

Italeri’s Teutonic Knights may be used to recreate the mounted elements of DBA Army 151 – Teutonic Knights

L’Ordre Teutonique est un ordre militaire chrétien founded at the Siege of Acre (1190-91), on the Bay of Haifa, during the third Crusade. The Order subsequently offered its military services a la Hongrie et Pologne. The crusade contre les Borusses paganistes led to land conquests which were consolidated over a period of 50 years. Repeated révoltes borusses were crushed, their people exterminated ou subdued. Italeri produces a beautifully sculpted set of Teutonic Knights a l’échelle 1/72 which may be used to raise the mounted elements d’une armée de l’Ordre Teutonique. The foot troops de l’Ordre Teutonique may be recruited ou converted from other figurine sets of the period.
