'Black Sheep' Turkoman 15mm DBA Army

Managed to (finally) finish this DBA army over the Christmas break - a 15mm 'Black Sheep' Turkoman army: DBA Book IV/77 dating from the late 14th Century.  The Black Sheep (Qara-Qoyunlu) were a confederation of Turkoman and Kurdish clans that ruled over Azerbaijan and Iraq.  The army is mostly armoured lance and bow -armed cavalry with some light horse and foot archers.  The figures are by Essex Miniatures, painted in acrylics and gloss varnished.
