1/72e - Combat inégal - unequal battle

En parallèle de ma réalisation actuelle, j'ai trouvé une certaine doc qui pourrait également vous intéresser.
En effet, dans ma période moyenâgeuse, j'ai commencé un petit dioramas qui risque de me mettre à dos les "pseudos" historiens.
Sur la base de la doc historique, je vais mettre en scène un éléphant de guerre et des templiers !
Des éléphants de guerre ont été impliqués dans une seule bataille lors des croisades. Ce fut en 1214 à la prise de Crémone par Frédéric II du Saint-Empire.
Bientôt les premières photos...

In parallel with my current implementation, I found some doc that might also interest you.
Indeed, in my medieval period, I started a small dioramas that might put me back to the "nicks" historians.
Based on the historical doc, I'm going to stage a war elephant and the Templars!
War elephants were involved in a single battle during the Crusades. It was in 1214 in making Cremona by Frederick II, Holy Roman Emperor.
Soon the first photos ...

Well I know that medieval warfare did involve elephants, but only on a few occasions. I also think that this could be an interesting subject in the future. I also read that the saraceens used Camels as horses do fear these, unless they are used to them.

Construction des premières figurines et positionnement de celles-ci.
L'habillement du dioramas se fera progressivement en fonction de mon inspiration...
Il devrait comporter une bonne dizaine de soldats et de chevaux en plus de l'éléphant....

Translation with google ***
Construction of the first figurines and positioning thereof.
The clothing of the dioramas will be phased in according to my inspiration ...
It should include a dozen soldiers and horses in addition to the elephant ....
