Standards for the Sultanate of Aleppo - 1100 AD

Post by berthier » Tue Jun 20, 2017 12:59 am

I am currently working on a Field of Glory campaign set in Northern Syria during the time right at the end of the 1st Crusade. For control markers, I am working with 1" diameter wooden medallions I picked up at Hobby Lobby and plan on painting the symbol of the controlling faction. With that said, does anyone have any idea as to any symbols or standards that Ridwan of Aleppo's troops would have used or carried at this time?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Chris I think there is an Osprey about Aleppo or something pretty close to it.

I have the relevant Ospreys and they are pretty generic. I have found a "Seljuk Coin" with the Turkish crescent facing a 6-pointed star that I will use for the Islamic factions and differentiate by field color and edging. I am going w a blue field with red edging and white crescent and star for Aleppo.

Thanks for the input.

I have added a draft of the campaign rules and two more army markers for the campaign to my blog.
