More Turcomans for a Friend

Chugging along nicely is my Arab commission, the multicultural and multicolourful bunch of stallion jockeys I’ve been painting up for Kurt over the last few months. I’ve currently a unit of camel riders on my desk, but today I simply wanted to show you the second unit of Turcoman horse archers to gallop off the painting queue.

Models by Gripping Beast with a few Perry Miniatures models in the mix.

These were painted identically to all the models in the force – lots of washes over a white undercoat and some freehanded designs to liven things up a bit.

 

Three female Turcowoman (?)  cavalry. Really nice.

One particular difference between the first unit and this one is that there are three female horse archers in there, courtesy of Perry Miniatures. Quite different from the cruder Gripping Beast models in terms of sculpting style, but I don’t think they stand out too starkly among the males in the unit.

That’s it for today – tomorrow I’ll post up another Crusade-themed update, but completely different in subject. Until then!
