Encased in mail and equipped with lances and swords these early knights are formidable fighting machines.
As Europe emerges from the dark ages, the armored cavalry have begun to employ new tactics, gripping their lances tightly under their arms as they charge, transferring the full momentum of horse and man to the point. Combining heavy armour, a strong warrior ethos, and a devastating charge, they have come to dominate the battlefield.
