Turcoman horsearchers

Latest unit to my growing crusader era muslim army are a small unit of Turcoman horse archers.
The miniatures are from Gripping Beast.

I painted them in a more brown or duller colour tones then the more Arabic/Egyptian Saracens I painted previously to show that these are from a Turkic tribe and not Arabs.

Overall I like the sculpts but some of them seems to have the same problem as some of the other older sculpts from Gripping beast with to short arms and the miniatures are really a bit to chunky for my taste. But I like them none the less.

It feels good to have started to bring some cavalry to my Saracens.

  1. Lovely work - I know what you mean about the sculpts, but despite that they seem to really work - especially when you've painted them!
