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.

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!

Im a mongol artist who is really interested in medieval warfare. And i study lot of my own cultrue. So here is my few cents on this.
For the heavy infantry the full neck armor and wrist armor is missing. For the foot archer, His left arm must have it's sleeve tied, becus it tends to get in the way of arrow. Their coats dont split in the middle. The mongol coat is not usually this long, it is long up until little below the knee for easy mobility and faster mount. The leader should also have Wrist armor. Other than that, It truly rocks. Their helmets and overall are truly faithful.
If you would like to see more references i can recommend you some. Please leave a note.
