Nice sense of motion in those. Not troop type I normally use but maybe a change would be good

Another manufacturer who has failed to do the proper research. Mongols rode with high stirrups where the upper leg was close 90 degrees to the lower leg. Very few seem to grasp this simple concept and depict their Mongol figures with longer, western style stirrups.

That is a shame, but at least the horses seem small enough.

"but at least the horses seem small enough".

Perhaps sarcastic?, as they are actually really large. They make Perry horses look like ponies. The figures do have some nice things about them, but they have been out for years. Funny how the pictured Mongols all have the same horse color. A little variety would look more natural.
