From TamsinP: 15mm Mongols...On Foot! (90 points)

No, you're eyes aren't playing tricks on you. These are Mongols but with not a horse in sight. Most rules do allow Mongol cavalry to dismount when the opponent has certain troop types, such as big grey beasties. And that is what these are for.

These figures are all 15mm from Donnington Miniatures.

For scoring, there are 42 x 15mm foot @ 2 = 84 points which will see me nicely past my increased target. Before you get worried that this will mean I put the brushes down, have no fear - you can expect at least one more entry from me before the end of play on Wednesday.

From Grognard DaveD ... Ah Tamsin... its been great to see you kicking stuff out across this  challenge leading to  really great points total too. Mongols without horses.. love it. I love the colour you have got into these - cracking - so with added minion goodness its a total of 90 points.. and over the line you go - that means all of our current top 10 challengers (Well obviously we need to do a recount of Ray's incase he broke the spreadsheet ... again )and then some  have knocked it out of the park.. well done. 


  1. I wouldn’t have thought to ever see a force of dismounted Mongols and beautifully painted at that. Really like the mix of different colours. Looks suitably un-uniformed without becoming garish.

  2. great work on these. Is there a pecking order for being made to give up your horse. Bullingdon club and other posh gits get to ride whilst chavs get to fight elephants on foot

  3. Lovely work Tamsin, love the colours.

  4. There's some horses running around the steppes featuring horse-blankets reading: if you can read this the bumkin fell off!
    Great post Tamsin!

  5. Lovely work on these dismounted Mongols,I think the bottom of the rung in the Mongol army are the ones who get eaten when the rations are short!
    Best Iain

  6. Dismounted Mongols?? A sign of the apocalypse, surely?

    Well done Tamsin - as others have noted, the colour variation and combination is excellent. Great stuff.

  7. Great looking Mongols Tamsin!


  8. @ Dave D - thanks! It is good to see so much yellow running down the table, especially that block at the top :)

    @ Nick - cheers! I deliberately went for more muted tones for the coats to avoid them becoming garish :)

    @ Martin C - thanks! No pecking order that I know of :)

    @ Peter D - cheers! :)

    @ Barks - thanks! :)

    @ Sander - cheers! :)

    @ John M - thanks! :)

    @ Iain - cheers! If they started eating each other, that would mean that all the horses have already been eaten and they are all on foot :)

    @ Greg - thanks! :)

    @ Christopher - cheers! :)
