Last year I played at the national DBMM championships at Cancon using an almost all Cavalry list based on the Ayyubid Egyptian list in DBMM Book 4. Despite all evidence to the contrary, like my lowly finish, I reckon there is a half decent list in there trying to get out. So I invested some money in the Mirliton Miniatures Ayyubids. A bit fiddly with half people, separate shield/lances and the like, but very nice figures with lovely animation and variety.
Undercoated - some base colours
Here is the first bit of the WIP for the DBA scale army, which I am using as the testbed for the final army.
