From RayR - 28mm Donnybrook Moors (30 points)


Yep......me again! For my second entry today, were off to sunny Morocco, which believe it or not does actually look a little like the background in my pic?
The 4 foot figures are from Unfeasably Miniatures and are from their French Foreign Legion/Tuareg  range, but I thought they'd fit in well for my Moroccan Moors with Muskets. In the Donnybrook rules you're not allowed many muskets for the Moors, but hopefully I'll be painting up a few more figures for my Moors.


This lovely looking chap, goes by the name of Ab'd Allah Ghailan, but was better known by the English as Gayland. But he could also pose as Omar Ben Haddn, the Alcaid of Alcazar for later battles.They were two of the Moor leaders who led the Tangier garrison on a merry dance! I've had this figures for years. Its an Essex Miniature and I do believe its now out of production?


So I make that 30 points to add to my total?


You see, you can get the points right when you apply yourself! 
Very nice Moors for 30 points Ray.

  2. Lovely job on these. I have a T'ang general on that horse from Essex that I bought in 1987. Not surprised its out production. Tangier is a cool place to fight

    1. Not sure how long I've had the figure, infact I don't remember buying him?? As for the horse, he's probably like you said more of an ancient horse type, but it was the only Essex horse I had, but its not a bad fit??

  8. The Tribals are great a very nice contrast to your Donnybrook European regulars. Burt I can already hear certain Rejects complaining about them!

    1. That's the bit I wasn't sure of?? There's not a lot of info on what the Moors wore in the 1680's
