Salutations, gentlefolk !

Walk thru the flea market at Cold Wars, chanting "Heah's fawty shillin' awn the druum…" and you get some recruits of obscure background.

Here is a horseman, JLS & Bow, trousers, long-sleeve tunic and hood – Arab, perhaps ? Either an Essex Miniatures product or an unreasonable facsimile. If you can tell me where he fits in their catalog, mayhaps some homeboy comrades he will get.

Essex calls them Median or Persian Heavy Cavalry in their catalog, but includes them in their army packs as LH.
