I've just taken delivery of a new camera so it seemed appropriate to take some pictures of the initial units for Sagrajas 1086, starting with Yusuf ibn Tashfin's Black Guard. I have yet to work my way around the camera so I just put everything on automatic and pointed the lens! Looking at the pictures I could have arranged the lighting a little better and no doubt the photography course I'm enrolled on will allow me to work through the details of how to get the best results sooner rather then later.
The unit is that of Yusuf ibn Tashfin's Black Guard which stood in reserve for quite a while at Sagrajas. I've yet to do the command stand as I've been busy with two cavalry units, one Andalusian 'heavy' and one Hashim Guard 'heavy' along with a unit of 'Arab' horse archers (they will be 'arabised' Ghuzz or Turcoman).
There's a very interesting if brief article on Wiki about the origins of the Moroccan Royal Guard and their oprigins with Yusef ibn Tashfin's Black Guard HERE.
I stuck the Tablescape Designs Indian fortress walls in the background as to avoid a large number of paint pots cluttering up the images!
