The Rajput (Kingdoms situated modern day Northern India) were clans of elite class peoples and ferocious warriors, which fought and often defeated the Muslim Arab invasions during the 8th Century. Finally during the 12th Century the Muslims manage to establish Islamic states North of India i.e. Ghurid Dynasty (modern day Afghanistan/Pakistan) and the Delhi Sultanate. Some Hindu states remained independent until the Mughal conquests.

The main Rajput punching force are the knights (3Kn) supported with irregular foot archers (3Bw) and skirmishers (2Ps)

I painted a lot of detail on the figures i.e 3Kn, I don't know why, just couldn't stop :o) I think I wanted to get the best out of the figures...anyway..not really good on my eyes during painting, to much concentration I guess and sometimes I end up having a headache or the occasionally half day migraine, to much "pressure" on my eyes. Perhaps I should make an appointment with my Ophthalmologist or is it Optometrist? ;oP  ...anyway...not to sure about the flocking/work on the bases? look ok to me :o)
