Medieval Islamic Heavy Cavalry:
Here we have 2 more rider renders for the upcoming Medieval Islamic Heavy Cavalry set. This is set is now half complete, with lots more options and variety still to come! If you missed the 1st figure renders, head over to our blog.
Historical context –
These are going to represent the Seljuk and Syrian heavy cavalry of the 12th to 13th Centuries. There will be a mix of armour styles of mail and lamellar and varying helmets from all enclosing mail hoods with elaborate spiked helmets to open faced helmets with turbans.
The bow cases and arrow quivers will be optional as Arab heavy cavalry did not use the bow but Seljuk Askaris did. There will be a few bow firing arms included as well as swords, spears, lances, axes and maces.
Seljuk Turks formed a large proportion of any Amir’s household troops in Syria and Egypt and so we will be including some Seljuk heads with their distinctive hair in three braids, two to the side of the head and one down the back. We have included the Seljuk fur cap called the Sharbush worn by Chieftains and apparently Saladin wore one over the top of his helmet or mail hood.
Swords will be a mix of the straight bladed type but also the curved sabre and there will be plenty of shield options.
For further flexibility you will be able to combine a lot of the heads, shields and weapons from this set with the very versatile Norman cavalry set to create some more varieties of Arab cavalry. Islamic armies made great use of captured Crusader armour, weapons and shields so there is no reason a Norman cavalry figure with the addition of a turbaned head, Islamic shield and weapon arm could not ride along in your Fatamid Egyptian cavalry units.
