Following the altercation at Eadric’s hut Brother Simon continued to make his way south towards the monestary where he spent so little time. As the stream wound round again he started to cross at the ford. Only to be confronted by three Normans, obviously not common soldiers.
Simon de Bouc Majeur had got word from the surviving sergeant of the recent bloodshed, and pushing ahead with his hornman and cousin David la Salle he too appeared along the path to cross the ford.
Sensing there were more soldiers in the area, Brother Simon, after the formal introductions with his namesake, said he had seen strange travellers, dark skinned, who, after brief words he had seen leave the path and head northwards. David ordered the horn be sounded to summon their men!
And Simon, ordering the monk to be on his was, was a little bemused to see the large club the man of God had concealed behind his back!
But sensing that even a monk might need to protect himself in these troubled times he let him go and awaited the arrival of his men. The hunt was on!
These are three Crusader Miniature Normans that Simon (Goat Major) sent me along with the monk figure. Although already nicely painted the style didn’t really fit with mine so in the Dettol they went and yesterday they were painted and today based.
Nice figure and easy to paint. Three more characters added to the story!
