The Poles are justly proud of turning back the Mongols, but this was actually a diversionary attack. It was designed to keep the Poles, etc., from coming to the aid of the Hungarians in the main Mongol thrust into the Hungarian plains. So in that, the northern attack was strategically successful. The central Mongol thrust was successful, but once again there was a succession crisis that saved the Europeans.
Well, that's my story and I'm sticking to it.
Thanks for the fine execution of this subject.
PS, do you know why the knight's shield is still on his back? Bad luck?

An unhorsed Mongol and Teutonic Knight battling it out in single combat? That's beyond awesome!
Great work on the details, like the ax's wrist strap and the knight's chain mail. I also really like the chaotic background, with the fire and battle. It's a very interesting image of a great battle. +fav

Yup, the Mongols had the largest empire ever to exist and conquered most of it in a short amount of time, from China to as far as central Europe.

Absolutely gorgeous detail, even if, as previously mentioned, the figures are somewhat 'posed'. What I like most of all is that the facial expressions are clear enough (even if it's only the Teuton's eyes) that I can get a sense of what's going through their minds during the fight.

The battle of Liegnitz was between invading Mongols and defending Europeans in Kingdom of Poland in 1241.

Mhhh the battle of Liegnitz, later known as battle of Wahlstatt.

Duke Henry II (the Pious) of Silesia died during the battle.

Enough with the bits of history. This is a Fantastic piece of Art. Even if I usually must laugh about the helmet decorations of the teutonic knights. But you made it nice and small. More authentic then other people draw them. I doubt that the great Mass of Knights was wearing such decorations on their helmets in battle.

What is your native language? You incorrectly capitalize some points you are making, so I presume English is not your first language.

Just wondering is the knight too slim considering there is probably quilted gambeson under mail? Great looking painting anyways.

This was in medieval Europe, they really weren't very large. The average weight of an American soldier in WW2 was 140 lbs, so imagine it in 1241.

Nice picture. You really do great designes on their armour in particular.

Now this is no criticism of you work but when I look at this, I think "tis but a scratch."
