El Cid was my hero when I was a boy.  Attached is the full movie starring Charlton Heston.

In addition, here is an excellent history program about the great knight and leader Rodrigo Diaz de Vivar.

Amazing movie and real story to match.  I really hope John nails this one.  Fingers crossed.

I really, really hope so.  The simple fact is that he never misses with his planes and vehicles.  His figure record is more mixed so I am hoping these come out on the realistic side, not just for weapons and uniforms, but for everything that makes a figure great.  I am most enthusiastically pulling for him.
