I need a 28mm Bishop either on foot, horseback or both for Lion Rampant. I'm doing the Northern Crusades so it can look like Dark Ages or up to 1200's. Thanks

Have you checked out the Perry Crusader range? Their Clerical Command set has just what you need:

Do you know of any Fighting Bishop's I probably should have put that down.

How about William the Bastard's half-brother, Odo?

That's not too bad, and I like Crusader minis.

I stock 1st Corps. They have a number of suitable figs. PM me or mark@scalecreep.com

Footsore's Odo is good too:

You're probably OK with any armoured figure with concussive rather han edged weapons – to prevent the effusion of Christian blood although on crusade this wasn't a consideration.

The Bishop of Tartu was in the Northern Crusades at the Battle of Lake Peipus.
A google search will show quite a few different reconstructions of how he may have looked – Mirliton do one which fits the look.
He is just after your time frame but then most of the Northern Crusades were after 1200.

Essex F24 and F25 are mounted and dismounted bishops in 13th-century helm with a mitre on the top – again, a bit after your timeframe.
