Hungarian Light Cavalry for use in my Medieval German Army

15mm Feudal & Medieval Hungarian Light Cavalry

Having seen there were two distinctive phases when the Medieval Germans used Hungarian Light Cavalry in their armies I wondered if there was much difference in their dress style. After asking a couple of history sages on the WWW and finding out there was I ended up buying two batches of figures to enable me to field historically accurate looking figures depending on when I chose to date my Medieval Army list from.

The first group are for the 12th Century and I was recommended to buy the following figures:

They were nicely sculpted castings and painted up nicely.



The second group are for the 13th Century and I was recommended to buy the following figures:

    1. Glad you liked them. I only needed eight elements for each period but because of the way the figures were sold I of course ended up with more figures than necessary so now have ten elements of each.

  5. Now I decided that I am morphing my Medievals into Later Hungarians these figures are going to form the bulk of the missing Hungarian Fast Light Horse I need to do. So a lot less painting needed now 1
