This looks nearly like the moment at the second crusade as Richard the lionhearth and his army fist saw the city of Jerusalem. Many of them felt on their knees and prayed. This would be just the figure for this moment. But as Andreas said, the Horse have to stand. maybe shaking his head or so?

When the Knights first saw Jerusalem was in my Mind too ... i thougt about the 1st Crusade .

I´m a bit confused about Richard . He was one of the Leaders of the 3 rd Crusade and he never saw Jerusalem .

Or am i wrong ?

yes, my fault, it was the 3rd crusade. But Richard reached Jerusalem. He saw the city but then decided to turn and went bach to Akko. He never attacked Jerusalem and made a peacecontract with Saladin

Well yes, Richard did reach Jerusalem but never attacked or entered the city. This was actually also when the allience with the French King began to break. BBC did a series "Heroes and Villians" and I can highly recommend the one with Richard The Lionheart.

You are right about the horse, maybe it should be standing still, but actually the idea was a knight who did fall of and then tries to get up, holding on to his horse who is ready to join the charge again

But maybe the master makes more sence as an english knight or king...

Yes, I am considering to do a standing horse instead or simply make the set with two horses?
