I finished the core of my Dailami army last December
and here's the rest. First up are Bedouin allies. The Bedouin ally commander can only attach to Bedouin troops in Field of Glory. I painted the Bedouin units in black as a visual cue to help keep them together. In 15mm, that means a black basecoat followed by 2 highlights of grey.
Bedouin Light Horse:
The role of light horse on a battlefield is generally to skirmish and delay. The role of Bedouin lancers is to run down enemy lights and destroy them. Tough fellows!
Nothing fancy here. Just slingers, annoying other troops on the battlefield.
The Old Glory website suffers from the fact that they don't post up pictures of all of their figures. As a result, I was surprised when I pulled these fellows from the box. They're either Bedouin slaves or men who eschew robes and turbans.
Next are the Ghazis. Ghazi means "to raid" in Arabic. Ghazis warriors depended on plunder for their livelihood and were prone to looting during peacetime. Not a good way to impress your employer!
These fellows are medium impact foot.
Lancer armed, these fellows will be tough at impact.
Ghilman were slave-soldiers who served in Muslim armies from the 9th century on. Trained and educated, they could earn their freedom
through dedicated service. They're equally good with the bow and sword.
The history here is a bit thin but 11th century Kurdish cavalry are shown and described as wearing armor, helmet, robes, light lance, sometimes
sword and shield, and sometimes bow. That's all I've got on these fellows!
I could not find armored Arab lancers on the Old Glory website so I took Ghilmen figures, trimmed their swords and drilled out the right foot to mount spears. Presto! Armored lancers.
Baueda tent and supplies with Old Glory figures and cart. With this, the Dailmi army is finished.
