CC8 Realistic Minifigure-Scot Hobelar

Postby Heir of Black Falcon » Fri Dec 31, 2010 3:12 am

Hobelars were one of the few types of soldiers of the late medieval period that are the least known. Contemporary with the feared English longbow they often get overlooked. While they may not have been as vital to the outcome of battle as the English longbowman they were used as light cavalry and to move infantry about more quickly than others purely on foot. Originally from Ireland, the Hobelar was so useful they soon found themselves in armies all over Europe. English armies often used these hobelars coupled with mounted archers and men at arms to give their armies incredible flexibility and mobility in war. This Hobelar is from Scotland and is currently serving under a French battalion in Castile. He has his spear, aketon (a padded coat), bascinet, an axe, a shield, of course his mount and some supplies for his travels.
