The Saracens referred to the Sunni Muslim armies who were involved in the Muslim Conquests and Crusades in the Middle Ages. The term "Saracen" specifically refers to Muslim Arabs and not just "Arabs", as there were many Christian Arabs not referred to as "Saracens" and many Turks who were called "Saracens". The Saracens conquered the Holy Lands from the Christian Byzantine Empire in the 630s and held it against the Christian Crusaders.
The Saracens fought against the Christian Crusaders for the first time in 1096 during the First Crusade, and the Christians seized Jerusalem and much of the Levantine coast from them. Despite some losses, the Saracens held most of the Holy Lands, and under the leadership of Saladin, they reconquered Jerusalem in 1187.
These 4-point Starter Warbands are an excellent way to get up and running. Each one contains a Warlord plus four points worth of troops plus a plastic Renedra base for each figure plus all the appropriate weapons including lead spears.
Please note that the pictures are for illustration only and that the actual figures supplied may vary (EXCEPT for the Warlord, who is always the figure illustrated!).
