As well as planning a Mongol army for Kings of War I plan to create a Human Arab army to oppose them. Inspired by three ideas.
1. The KoW version 2 now includes a 'Beast of War' option for Human forces. Interpretation of that is up to players but it's a perfect slot for War Elephants to fit in.
2. I purchased the Gripping Beast plastic Arab box sets for possibly a Lion Rampant force but it can be expanded for KoW.
3. The Conqueror historical novel series at a certain point sees a Mongol army faced with Elephants among an Arab army. It was one of many incredible parts of those books.
It was a hefty purchase from Aventine Miniatures.
Are these the right looking style historically? No idea and I don't care really.
I was originally thinking to make one for my slow grow Early Imperial Roman army and leave the Arab force with 3. In the adventures of Macro and Cato one turned up in the invasion of Britannia. But I might just let the Arabs have four for maximum impact.
Lots of building taking place recently on the table but no painting continues.
