On to Herat 2

The Qajar had been one of Iran’s great nomadic tribes prior to seizing the throne.  Naturally enough they could field a lot of cavalry in their armies. All of the following are from Irregular Miniatures.

These are hard charging Kurd armoured lancers handy enough if you could get them into the opponent’s cavalry.

Here are Qajar tribesmen happy to fire from horseback and then, if things went well to charge home with the sabre.

The composite bow lingered among some troops sometimes with a sword and occasionally with the lance too.

At various times the Qajar had access to troops from the Caucasus.

There were also irregular infantry armed with the long range jezzail which they often used with a supporting rest.  So, all in all an army with table top potential.
