Battle of Mohi by wraithdt Battle of Mohi by wraithdt
Any Mongol fans here?

This one is of Batu Khan and a small group of mongol scouts scoping out the Hungarian camp under cover of darkness. He finds, to his pleasant surprise, that the Hungarian forces have packed themselves in like sardines in a fortified camp of wagon trains. To the mongols this is pretty much handing the battle over to them because the Hungarians have opened themselves up to be completely surround by them with no avenue of retreat, which was exactly what happened to them although they did put a stiff defense initially, to their credit.

This illustration was done for Medieval Warfare Magazine, a Dutch publication. You can check it out and subscribe here >> [link]

Yep, that's true. Could've been a much better ending for us, but history doesn't care about "what if?"-s. May our ancestors souls rest in peace.

Your picture is great! Once, You could paint something like this, about the magyar hordes, during the Xth centuries. Our name was feared then: "Sagittis hungarorum libera nos domine"

Nice greetings from Hungary!
