So I've finally got some publishable work done on my Impetus army of Volga Bulgars circa 7th century. These are my Nomad Allies of Light Cavalry, which I've decided are Pechenegs who were stomping around those parts as well. If you look close you'll notice a few stray Varangian mercenaries. Weird!
So this is my leader stand if I use one, the red caftan is a dead giveaway. (VBU 4, VD 2, I 1, Short Comp B), I made all three stands with two archers firing despite historical records calling the Pechenegs, "an all-archer army." Commentators don't know shit, modern soccer for ex?
With these guys being on the lower end of the economic scale of the 7th century only two get 'pretty horses' with a nice bay for the red coat and a black for a local horse thief cum mercenary. These two stands are VBU3, VD 1, I 1 Short Comp B as well.
The aforementioned Varangian mercs, as well as yet another pointless Movember tribute.;-)
Speaking of which, Bulgar CL's and Skirmishers are next!
Interesting wiki entry.
