Battle of Halmyros by wraithdt Battle of Halmyros by wraithdt
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.

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

And if any of you are interested you can check out the magazine here. Its a very interesting magazine if you're in to medieval history. >> [link]

This is a masterpiece.
Man i like it, especialy the knight in the lower left corner.
I am using it as my profile picture, almost at all my profiles, but under every picture, there is a link to your deviantART profile.
So i hope you will not unleash your rage to me.

Btw, I am sorry for my barbarian english.

very impressive!!  I was just wondering would it be okay if i could use this image as concept art please? its from a game design document im doing for uni, the theme is based on medieval times and will have 3d battles, this art piece would come in really handy in describing the looks we are going for.

All of this happened after the Fourth Crusade, during which the crusaders conquered most of the Bizantine empire.   The Almogavars were famed mercenaries.  Infantry famous for their skill at throwing things with lethal accuracy.
