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.

You can read more about the battle here >> [link]

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 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.

The Knights of the Livonian Order are depicted routing the field following a conference. They were invited by representatives of Novogrod to attend a debate named "Christianity – Religion of Peace". The heated debate led to disagreements on three points: 1. Who is more peaceful, Novogrod or the Livonian Order 2. which group obeys the true will of God 3. which cross shape is better. This in turn led to a battle and centuries of armed conflict. The debate is considered to have been won by Novogrod, leading by approximately 7000 kills.

Another 'Lionhearted' knight. This one is rather old but I realized that I never posted it colored. I like to think I've learned a bit since finishing this piece.

"Come here pretty boy...seems like you gotta opening in your armor...let me "fill" it up."

Thinking of what kind of character I'd have in War of the Roses. [link]
Light armor and a warhammer. Going to open up those pesky full plated knights.

Been pretty busy with commissions and stuff recently, so still alive! :]

Some rough paintings of medieval warriors. Focused more on colors and values on these one rather than details and desing. These are quite fun to do :)

Top left. European knight
Top right. Russian warrior
Bottom left. European crossbowman
Bottom right. Viking


The Viking guy is actually some basic desing of my armor. Might add a hauberk on top of that. I really want to get back to swordfighting and have been interested in viking weapons lately, especially the round shield and it's techniques. They had very sophisticated fighting. Not just rage rush kill. Take a look: [link]
I've been thinking of getting together a small reenactment group themed around early nordic/slavic warriors. Fighting for fun and show.
