Mongol Skirmisher by JoelChaimHoltzman Mongol Skirmisher by JoelChaimHoltzman

Hi everyone,

Here is a painting of a mongol warrior i made in between projects. Tackling a slightly different approach here, instead of the classical hunno-mongol look with heavy fur/leather armor i went for the light clothing tailored for desert/arid area's.

Model: Marcio van den Hout

Lemme know thoughts!

Best,

JCH

Nice drawing! I can imagine him being part of the armies that conquered good part of the near east

Or after, when the mongols acultured themselves with the region and became the Ilkhanate :)

The light clothes is a nice approach compared to the majority we all are used to seeing. Would it be possible for the warriors to have even lighter clothes made of lighter materials such as cotton instead of animal fur and animal hide?

Thanks! Interesting fact: The mongol warriors used cotton (or another light cloth) beneath their leather Armor, which served as a very underrated extra protection, in which enemy arrows would sink
