Turkoman horse archers, converted plastic models
I bought a box of Fireforge Games Mongol light cavalry and its hard not to like plastic miniatures, especially when kitbashing them with Warlord Games Celts for an added variation. With the kitbashing together with greenstuff I was able to make a unit of Turkoman horsearchers for my Muslim collection in the era of the crusades.
Im happy with the end result and the unit was both fun to convert and paint up. I tried to keep the colour tones a little more muted compare to some of my Arab units to differentiate them from each others and to make a nice contrast.
I have since I started to convert these noted that Gripping Beast will release plastic light and heavy cavalry for the Muslims and it will be nice to see how I can combine these kits with the Mongols from Fireforge to create even more interesting units.
Please check out the GB coming miniatures in this link (I think its an open page even for those without facebook)
And apparently the box art can be seen on their site now.
