This seems like a good option to have available depending upon the opposition, especially as they are regular troops of decent or superior quality, so I set about putting together fourteen elements of these:
The figures are again from Khurasan, but from their Mongol range. I selected these on the basis that they should fit the nomadic bill nicely:
There is a choice of six riders and three horses, available either as steppe or Mongol ponies with the latter having a broader head and shorter legs so I chose the former as being more generally applicable:
These are very nicely detailed figures, but are more 18mm than the true 15mm figures of the Tibetans. They have also been done by two different sculptors, but are as I say from two completely different ranges under the Khurasan banner:
They also will not be mixed within the same unit, so the size difference should not matter in the final analysis:
Only around another fifteen elements of Tibetan heavy cavalry plus a few dismounted figures to go now, and that will be the first army completed for 2020. Strangely, and in spite of the enforced isolation most of us are going through, my production rate does not appear to have increased. I can only put that down to my wife also spending more time around home and finding an increased number of jobs that need doing, some of which had been carefully hidden away from all but the most discerning eye and which of course one now cannot find a tradesman to do.
