This is an illustration done for Medieval Warfare Magazine, a dutch publication. It depicts a battle between the lightly armed but battle-hardened Almogavars of the infamous Catalan Company and the French Knights of the Duchy of Athens. Guess who won.

Muslims of Sicily served as superb archers under the Normans and went to war with them.

The island of Sicily was at one point prior to the 11th century, under control of Muslims, who conquered it from the Eastern Romans (Byzantines). Eventually they were conquered by the Normans but many remained in Sicily, living and serving under their Christian rulers, which made the island kingdom a melting-pot of eastern and western cultures.

Another illustration done for Medieval Warfare Magazine a few months back.

This is the battle of Kutna Hora fought in a cold winter night between the Hussites, led by the famous commander, Jan Zizka, and the combined Hungarian and German coalition led by King Sigismund of Hungary (also soon to be Holy Roman Emperor). As you will notice the Hussites were a primarily infantry force based around the tactic of using war wagons as a bastion against enemy heavy cavalry assaults, a tactic Jan Zizka used to devastating effect and hence made popular among medieval armies of the European east. Here The Hungarians and Germans are caught off guard as Jan Zizka conducts an offensive push to break through the royalist forces which have surrounded his own.

Its was also interesting to read about the Hussite heresy and how it came about and why the Church was adamantly against them. There was even a letter sent by Saint Jeanne d'Arc to the Hussites threatening them with extermination if they did not renounce their heresy and embrace Catholic orthodoxy. Of course in such wars there's also always a whole lot of local politics involved which drove the conflict.

Hope you guys enjoy this piece :)

An artistic interpretation of the Visigoths during the Islamic invasion of Spain early in the 8th century. One is a nobleman, who acts as heavy cavalry with sword, shield and spear, the other is a commoner (probably a slave class if I remember correctly) who serves as basic infantry and/or archer. The nobleman's arms and armor is an interesting mix of Roman, Frankish and Byzantine styles.

Any Mongol fans here?

This one is of Batu Khan and a small group of mongol scouts scoping out the Hungarian camp under cover of darkness. He finds, to his pleasant surprise, that the Hungarian forces have packed themselves in like sardines in a fortified camp of wagon trains. To the mongols this is pretty much handing the battle over to them because the Hungarians have opened themselves up to be completely surround by them with no avenue of retreat, which was exactly what happened to them although they did put a stiff defense initially, to their credit.

A piece I did back in 2012 for Medieval Warfare Magazine.

I'm not steeped in German Medieval history but I believe Worringen was one of many battles fought amongst Germans and men of the "Low Countries" within the Holy Roman Empire. The politics and fragmented nature of the empire seem to land itself quite frequently to internal conflicts between its autonomous rulers. This particular battle is between the Duke of Brabant (left) and the Count of Luxembourg (right) over the possession of the Duchy of Limburg.
