This is for Ray
« on: October 26, 2020, 07:34:08 PM »
Well, Ray had asked me so politely and heart warming,...


@Tellus.. get your butt in gear and paint up some minis for us to gawk at!  ;)

....so, how could I refuse his request?? lol

Though, nothing brand new, but first time on the net. I had already finished these Guys in May, for an DBA 3.0 Campaign (3rd Crusades), in which then I couldn't take part of. And that was the reason I didn't finished the job on the bases of the other half of the lot. So, for now I can't show them in it's entire might. But I hope that will change soon.....despite the fact that I have already started an Army for the next Campaign.

As I have mentioned these Minis are based for DBA 3.0 and represent an Seljuq Turkish Army  (List III/74b).
They're all Perry. Flags are from Little Big Men Studios.

General (Cv - Cavalry)


Nobles (Cv)


Turkoman horse archers (LH - Light Horse)


Turkoladies & Turkoman horse archers (LH)


Turkoman (LH)


Tribal foot (Ps - Psiloi/Skirmisher)


And a group shot

I'm not Ray, but I've taken a peep and might as well leave a comment. ;)
Nicely done, mate, really like the paintjobs. It's also kind of encouraging to see a cavalry-based army of 12 horses (so far). Heck, even I could handle that!  lol

Thank you guys for your kind words!

Well, that depends on your definition of a large force, I guess ;)
This is only 50% of the army, so there will be definitely some more.

Oh goodness... they are lovely!  :-* :-*

Hey Ray, glad you like them  :D

Of course youre welcome, too, Tilman   lol
Yeah, DBA Armies with lots of horse are pretty manageable in the context of miniatures to paint. Success on the battlefield might be something else, especially in the case of many Light Horse Units.

Nice to see your work again, Tellus. In this strange times we don't meet at Conventions and talk. Great work, show us more here of your wonderful work.

Quite right, its a pity, Dirk. The chat in the evening with you and Niall and...ehm...Bob?...sorry if I got this wrong, was my personal highlight of this years Tactica.
