Mongols

This is the remaining 9 riders from a Fire Forge Mongol Cavalry box that I completed. I have conspired with a fellow gamer to get some more of these all the way from Italy. Eventually I aim to build enough for use in 'Lion Rampant'. As I have already said I really like how animated and full of action they look.
Rushed photography resulted in a variety of colour change. All photos are on the same coloured ground would you believe.







Google image search of Mongol horses supplied the inspiration for the patterns and colours below.


I made one standard bearer with a clenched fist in the air. Rocking out or giving the signal to ATTACK!

  4. Great looking Mongols, and a nice change for a "retinue" using Lion Rampant.

  8. Those are really beautiful models. The horses and faces are soothing, you've picked wonderful colors and applied them perfectly. They came out terrific.

    I really like all your 28mm work, the best. It would be a pleasure to have your Mongols massacre my Hungarians.
