Hello all ,

This is my latest creation inspired by "Kingdom Of Heaven" by Ridley Scott. The film tells the story of Balian, a blacksmith, who is leaving for the crusade to the Holy Land and will participate in the defense of the city of Jerusalem, besieged by Saladin and his army.

"Be without fear in the face of your enemies,
Be brave and upright that God may love thee,
Speak the truth even if it leads to your death,
Safeguard the helpless and do no wrong,
That is your oath,
And that's so you remember it."

Balian Of ibelin

Very nice!  Did you use personally-made stickers for the crusader shields and torsos?

I've done a lot of Mafia games over the years. Somehow, I haven't improved at all.

I'm writing a paper on the Crusades now, so to see them realized in LEGO form is awesome.  :laugh:

Like all of your MOC's, it has a really nice cinematic quality, which is great, and I love the way you made arrows embedded in the ground.

Very clever use of some ordinary elements!  Simple, but very effective vignette!

Time maybe for a castle theme which has a castle that comes with soldiers and has crusaders going away to Jerusalem then they could have a number of crusade sets each one showing a part of the journey and each city as a 120USD set that they passed
