I am in the process of building a Crusader army in 28mm scale, mainly using Fireforge figures.
I am after building a diorama style base to represent a baggage train or encampment.
Looking round the various manufacturers I know of I am strggling to find suitale wagons, tents, civilian types etc suitable for a smart looking piece.
Any help and pointers appreciated.

Perry miniatures have Clergy and unarmed pilgrims in their 1st Crusade range that would look good in the baggage train.

Baueda has a few things you might use.

1st Corps have some useful stuff in their medieval range including two camp scenes.

There are quite a few options for medieval civilians. Many are usable for a fair chunk of the period…

Old Glory makes monks and clergy for the Crusades:


They also make various townsfolk – European AND middle easterners:

Thanks everyone. Feeling a bit "dodgy" yesterday I decided not to go watch my local rugby league team play (they won for only the 2nd time this season!!). Instead I stayed at home and followed the guides here along with a determined trawl around the net and I think I have everything I need (And a lot more besides!!!!)

Thanks all for your useful input.
