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.

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.

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 :)

This is a one-sheet poster I did for Radical Publishing's Assassins a while back. A highly fictional and fantastical take on the medieval Crusades, its shows Richard the Lionheart and Saladin fighting side by side against hordes of assassins.

This is the last commission I did for Medieval Warfare Magazine before I took a break to welcome my first child.

Also known as the Battle of Deptford Bridge during the Cornish Rebellion which erupted some years after the War of the Roses in England. Here Lord Daubeny leads a division of the Tudor forces in a frontal assault on the bridge held by the Cornish forces.

Since this battle took place at the close of the 15th century I wasn't sure about the style of armor they'd be wearing since around this time the german 'Maximillian' and Renaissance styles where also starting to appear. In the end I settled for a more War of the Roses look figuring they'd still be wearing what was popular during that English civil war and not so up to date with the latest styles yet.
