Nadir Steppe Riders

I used Instant Mould, to make a form of a horse tail, to replace the missing one. The actual cast was done with miliput pressed into both halves, with one half filled over the brim. In the other I put a piece of wire, to be used as a pin when gluing the tail to the horse.

Next I applied some plaster to the bases to smooth out the integral bases of the horses and not have them sitting on a small hill. I added some larger stones to the plaster. Afterwards, the bases where covered in PVA glue and sanded.

There are two riders with open hands, from brass rod I cut one banner pile and one spear.

As the Nordmen are nearing their completion, I started to prepare the next batch of models. The Oldworlder Ally Contingent allows for 0-30 Border Horse, with a unit minimum of 10. They come equipped with Light armour and hand weapon, with the option for spears, shields and/or bows.

Tobias' Wargaming Legacy contains 15 rider models, which I choose to use for this unit. They consist of 11 Steve Barber Mongols (apparently not available any longer), and Harlequin Miniatures' (today called Black Tree Design babarian cavalry.

I will mount the miniatures on metal bases from Products for Wargamers.

I cleaned the riders of flash, and started on the horses (and the one camel). The cleaned animals were then glued to the base. One of the Harlequin models is missing its tail, which I will try to recast from one of the other horses.
