Thanks for the comments, though later on I'll be adding a belt to the torso. I don't know why, but I just forgot.
as far as the movie goes, I really liked it. I have a game (and I know a couple of you have it too) called Stronghold: Crusader, and its like that game come to life.
although a lot gorier. It was an awesome movie, and while there may have been one or two things I would have changed about it, overall its one of the best I have seen.
It wasnt anti-islamic, nor was it anti christian. what was it? anti-war.
I mentioned above that I was reading this book on Arab histories of the crusades, and several key scenes are mentioned in this book. particularly I have noticed many written about by Ibn Al-Athir, (1160-1223) who wrote while these actions were taking place. I won't go into detail because I don't want to ruin the movie, but if you are interested, PM or email me.
On a side note, I picked up the book on sale at a local Barnes and Nobles, so I suggest if you are interested, getting down there and picking one up (for those who have that book store nearby)
and thanks Fry, I am starting to breathe a bit better now, and Chance has made me an offer I can't refuse to get back to work on the Joes... and I want to do a few more from the movie as well, as well as some torsos from the Stronghold games. (anyone want a Duc de Puce shield done?
