We are very proud to present you an exclusive miniature with a historical context to the host city Münster at the SAGA World Cup next week.
It was modelled by Reconquer Designs (a big thanks to them). Each player and all helpers will receive one as a gift at the event. Printed in 28mm scale by us. We offer even more figures printed by Reconquer Designs.
We couldn’t resist and painted a 50mm print as well. The miniatures (in both scales) will also be available for purchase at the event and exclusively for all interested parties during 25-26 November.
And now to the historical background:
Hermann II of Katzenelnbogen (* 1130 or 1140; † 9 June 1203) was the 24th Bishop of Münster from 1174 to 1203 and is called the first Prince-Bishop of Münster. He came from the noble family of the Counts of Katzenelnbogen.
In preparation for the Third Crusade, Emperor Frederick I Barbarossa sent an envoy led by Hermann II to Emperor Isaac II Angelos in Constantinople. Angelos in Constantinople. From 1189 to 1192, Hermann II took part in the crusade himself and belonged to the emperor’s inner circle.
The painted background is from the new Backdrop book by Jon Hodgson.
