From RayR - Donnybrook Moorish Horse (100 Points)


Entry no 7, I only just finished these last night, even though I started painting them back in January.

These are quite handy because I can use them for 2 periods. Firstly for my Donnybrook 1680's Tangiers, shenanigans and secondly what I originally bought them for El Cid and the Spanish Reconquista.


They're Gripping Beast figures that I've had for probably 10 years???? So I'm really pleased that I've got them done. I do need a few more as for Donnybrook they need to be in units of either 9 for Recruits, 6 for Drilled or 3 for Elite.



Very nice Ray, I really like these Moors. They look like pretty hefty models - lots of feed and dates in their parts. :) Your variation in clothing does a nice job in breaking up the similarity in poses. As you say, they will serve you well, being able to work in a wide variety of settings. Well done!

  1. Well done Rat. I know these figures well, and you've painted them up nicely. Great repurposing of the figures too.

  3. Nicely done! Are these Sedge Moors by any chance? I just thought you'd be staying with a theme.

  5. Very nicely painted, I know nothing about Donnybrook and whilst it sounds like a battle in the south of Scotland, I suspect it wasn't if the Moors were involved :)

  7. Very good work Ray
    I'm currently looking to paint some Moors as my gaming group is now playing Crusades. Yours are an excellent source of painting inspiration

  8. I like the mixture of colors, Ray! I can see them giving your shore parties a bit of bother! ;)
