Battle of Myriokephalon by EthicallyChallenged Battle of Myriokephalon by EthicallyChallenged
Another pic for Medieval Warfare Magazine. This commission happily coincided with a holiday in Turkey, so I could check out the scenery before painting the scene :)

Was splint armor really used as far back as the 12th century, or was only in the eastern regions and the byzantine empire at the time?  I noticed on some of the infantry, so I was curious.

Perhaps I'd need to see an actual close up depiction of proper byzantine infantry.

A beautifully wrought painting. It has led me to look this battle up. From the sounds of it, an incredibly significant battle. I'm ashamed that I knew nothing of it. Thanks for enlightening me!

Thanks for the kind words! I knew nothing of it either until I got hired to paint it, I don't think it's shameful ;]

I'm glad you think so. It's just that I'm a kind of interested in the Roman/Byzantine Empire, and am a bit surprised that I've never heard of it before (not that I'm an expert, of course).
