Mongol Command and Cavalry

 







Here are some Mongol command figures and cavalry that I've painted. I've been reading Kenneth W. Harl's book Empires of the Steppes The Nomadic Tribes Who Shaped Civilisation which got me inspired to start work on my Mongol army. This book is a great over view of the nomadic tribes, both in the east and west, from the Bronze Age right through to Tamerlane. The command figures above are Subutai, one of Genghis Khan's greatest generals, a resin Fireforge Games figure. The dismounted command stand figures with golden eagle are metal by The Assault Group. The plastic Mongol cavalry figures below are by Fireforge Games.

  1. Great looking Mongol horde, Mike! BTW, one of the local Saga crew here is finishing up a fairly huge Mongol warband (including the drummer on camel) - tons of cavalry.

    1. Thanks Dean, I have quite a few Fireforge (including the drummer on camel) and TAG figures to paint for this army. I haven’t tried playing them in Saga yet, have to paint a few more…

  2. I’ve been eyeing doing some for Saga and debating using Fireforge, so it’s nice to see your lovely work.

    Cheers
