3 more Huns/Mongols painted and a warlord converted

I finally finished painting of the next 3 Riders of the Steppes. Again I enjoyed painting the horses very much. With 6 riders painted I have to do 2 more to finish my first point for this new SAGA warband.

Between the painting of the horses and the riders I’ve got disturbed by the task of searching and converting a model for my warlord. After a fruitless search for a suitable model in the internet  I decieded to convert one from an asian miniature. In my “mountain of lead” I found a fantastic looking horse and a promising lightly armored bowman, both from the “Clan Wars” miniature line (Legend of the five rings by AEG). The bowman was a foot soldier but it wasn’t too difficult to adjust him to the horse. I further had to convert the asian sandals to boots and the helmet by adding some fur and making him pointed. After much consideration I decieded to add a bird of pray to his left hand/arm. All in all I am very pleased with the result so far. I am very tempted to start painting him at once but I will force myself to do the 2 missing riders first.

In the following gallerie you can find pictures of the painted riders and the converted warlord.

  1. Great work on all of them! Your skill with the sculpting tools is just amazing. Well… ok, it’s some kind of profession but nonetheless.
