Hi everyone!
I'm searching a good range to make my 15mm Crusader Army.
Can someone tell me what are the most beautiful crusader's range on the market?

I know only Legio Heroica, Essex, and in part Mirliton.
Thanks

Legio Heroica – simply the best Crusader era figures available. Large range of superb figures for all sides.

Mirliton figures are good, but the range is too small.

Yep, I'd echo the LH recommendation. Excellent service as well.

Black Hat/Gladiator's are very nice too.

Old Glory 15mm has a very extensive range. They have Outreamer's eastern armor, Western Europe armor and Crusader knights. A number of different packs in each range.
They also have monks and pilgrims and peasants.

Legio Heroica, working on Ayyubids at the moment and the figures are as good as everyone says.

How do Legio and Black Hat fit in with OG15?

Don't know about Black Hat, but LH are noticeably larger than OG

Outpost miniatures make some nice ones. I have some of their Byzantines and I really like them!

Khurasan have a first crusades range link

not sure how they match up to other 15mm ranges for size though.

There are various comparisons on my blog link IMO, LH are nice but are rather large compared to other ranges.
OG and Mirliton are best suited for the later Crusades in the mid-13th century. Black Hat do two ranges – the figures in the Feudal range are better sculpts than those in the Crusades range though I do think the samples from the Crusades range I've seen painted do look pretty decent.

For the 2nd and 3rd Crusades you could also consider Alain Touller link
Donninton New Era have a range for the same period which is ready to go – he's had samples of the knights on display at some shows and they look very good.

I'd second the Donnington New ear stuff as well to be fair.

I love the Mirliton Ayyubids, which are suitable for any number of Eastern armies of the Crusades.

They paint up really well.

I would go for Legio Heroica too

But Mirliton and Khurasan also make very nice minis

I've been thinking of using Khurasan (Muslims) and Spintered Lights Normans (Christians) for the first to second crusade.
