    Battle history

    The diorama is about the end of the battle. The frankish Kights surounded by the artchers of the Byzantines are about to surrender to the Byzantine leader.
    The main persons are Byzantine "sebastokrator" John Palaiologos brother of the emperor, and the Baron Hugues de Bruyeres, Baron and Master of Karytena. He was the main person in Morea after Villehardouin, and he was his relative because of his marrige, and he had about 600 mounted men under his command (Villeardouin had about 1000), he was also one of the most respectful men among the Knight's world. During the battle he killed the commander of the German mersenaris of the Byzantine army, duke of karinthia and with his men destroy the German heavy cavalary of the Niceans (300 heavy cavalarymen). But finally he was surrounded by the horse archers and the foot artchers of the enemy and what happened was look like battle of Angincourt. According to the chronicle of morea, John Palaiologos saw his Flag and that he was about to get killed because he refused to surender to low rank byzantine officers and went himself, to call him to surrender, promising that he will treat him with respect. The baron finally captured end became a prisoner of the Emperor of Byzantium.

    This really caught my eye with all the work and detail that is gone into building this dio with the various figures all combining to make a very dramatic scene, the painting has been done very well and brings all the elements together nicely.

    Lovely work and a real joy to look at.

    Amazing work, great painting and an excellent layout. I like the fact it's on a round base and can be viewed from any angle with so much going on, and lets not forget the groundwork, very natural looking.
    Will follow with interest.(y)

    Cheers Ken
