Chinese Warlords: Tibetan Cavalry Part 1

I am still only halfway through this unit, but the first six cavalry figures are off the table.  These figures are a mix of the regular and nomad cavalry packs from Copplesestone. As with my previous Tibetan figures, I've decided to make their coats a bit more elaborate.  For reference, I've used photographs of riders and attendees at Tibetan horse festivals.  This requires a bit more time to paint when compared to my warlord troops, but I think it's worth it to have some color on the table.

The Tibetan flag is made of paper, with the edges trimmed using decal scissors to create the fringe. The flag can be downloaded here if you haven't seen it already.

My hope is to have the remaining six figures ready by next month.
