MK159 The Veteran Knight
This standing Crusader Warrior Knight was inspired by an illustration by the late, great Angus McBride (1931-2007), one of the finest historical illustrators in the UK. In a long and distinguished career his work featured in many fine Childrens’ magazines in Britain such as “Look and Learn” and “Finding Out”. To most toy soldier collectors he is best known as the illustrator behind dozens of Osprey’s “Men-at-Arms” series of uniform books.
This K&C interpretation portrays a veteran knight of The Order of Brothers of the German House of Saint Mary in Jerusalem. Quite a mouthful … They were more commonly called … “The Teutonic Knights”.
