Médiéval warrior priest et bishops often accompanied knights et infantry into battle, particularly during the crusades, et they personally led des armées médiévales to protect their worldly realms. Since it was forbidden to spill du sang chrétien, some warrior bishops used blunt clubbing weapons like the mace to circumvent this prohibition. Valdemar Miniatures is the first manufacturer to cover this subject in detail, et they have done a good job at it. The mounted et dismounted bishops will be popular avec dioramistes et joueurs de guerre alike. The mix of separate weapons offers great variety in figurine poses, although the figurines’ hands require some work to actually hold these weapons et shields.
