From ChristopherS: 15mm Mameluks (100 points)


Here is a beautiful group of Mameluks sent in from Christopher.


'My latest entry into the competition is the Mamluks and are the elite of my 15mm Ayyubid army for Impetus. They began as slave soldiers before eventually taking Nobles into their ranks were some even became Sultan! They were not just deadly archers, but were equally hard in close quarter fighting and in a large part defeated both the Crusaders and Mongols to give some perspective of their qualities for those perhaps not familiar with them.'



'Once again Legio Heroica figures painted up using Foundry paints. The Banner is from LBM with some small added trimming by myself.'


I'm hoping I can add one more unit before the competition ends, but that's probably a long shot!

C'mon Christopher, dig deep! I really like how colourful and bright these cavalry are - they just 'pop' against Christopher's arid groundwork. Very nice. These will give him a base of 90 points, but I'm adding a 10 more for nice detailing in the horse tack and shields.

  4. Beautiful stuff, the colours are amazing.

    You're making me want to do similar work in small scale on large bases.
