It's been awhile since I worked on finishing my 6mm Crusader era forces. (At least the Arab side) I finally completed all of the light cavalry and am now going through the process of mounting and basing. First out of the chute are two units of Bedouin Cavalry. I originally purchased two WHA Fatamid army packs from Baccus, which each come with 9 Bedouin light cavalry with spears and shields. I am opting to base my light cavalry with 4 figures/stand, so I had to steal some figures from the Mameluke cavalry units to round out all six bases. I opted to do this by using 2 each of the leaders, standard bearers and Mameluke regulars mixed into the group.
I kept the shields as simple 1 or 2 color affairs with light squiggles of black to imply arabic writing.
With these complete, I just need to base the other 96 Mameluke cavalry. Then I need to get started on the Heavy Cavalry.
