Arab Cavalry

This is what I came up with when I decided to try my hand at painting some 28mm cavalry. 
Assuming that it would be a futile exercise to try and change Mongol warrior´s minds, I simply changed their heads - and shields. 
A very simple conversion: Fireforge Mongol Cavalry x GB Arab Spearmen & Archers. 100% plastic.
Is the result Moorish, or just Moorish-ish...?

  1. J'ai fait la même chose (couper les têtes) pour quelques unes de mes nouvelles unités arabes moyen-âge, mais à pied...Un magnifique ensemble de cavalerie, et une présentation somptueuse!

  3. I'd say a veritable success. Excellent conversion work and thinking out of the "box" - pardon the pun. Plastics really are a boon for work like this.

  6. Verdadeiros Mouros! Fantástico trabalho de modificação que significa necessariamente um conhecimento profundo dos costumes mouriscos. Posso até imaginar o grande Vimara Peres a expulsá-los da nossa Portucale.
