The Predator of Antioch (First Crusade, 1098) By Blayne
Movies: Jay Cochran - 2013.07.07
This week's TNI Cool Custom is of a Predator of Antioch (First Crusade, 1098) figure. This custom was done by Blayne.

Here is how he describes it.

"On 28 June 1098, the crusaders defeated the Muslim commander Kerbogha's forces in a pitched battle outside the city. According to Christian eye-witnesses, an army of Christian saints came to the aid of the crusaders during the battle and crippled Kerbogha's army.
While it is impossible to determine the number of entities eye-witnesses saw, one was described as emerging during a crusader's charge, 'with holy light from heaven', wielding an immense broadsword. The savagery that the 'saint' of Antioch displayed may help explain the particularly intense level of atrocities committed by Christian soldiers. In particularly, the decapitated, skinned bodies of the Muslim army's division commanders.
