This range covers the wars of the Prophet and his immediate successors: the Rashidun and Umayyad Caliphates.

standard formation until 638 was an infantry centre and two infantry wings, with any cavalry grouped into an extra command used for
outfianking or as a reserve. After 638 a large quantity of captured horses and armour was available and initially about half of the new
permanent "Jund" forces became cavalry. Jund were settled in large permanent military encampments in conquered territory intended to
insulate the Arab fighting men from less warlike natives and prevent them being absorbed and diluted. However, multiple native wives
producing children had somewhat the same effect as well as greatly increasing Jund numbers in the following period. Little use was yet
made of non-Arab troops. Even rich city Arabs had their children fostered by nomads and the poor often worked as caravaneers.
To quote an Arab general in 635, "In the days of the Ignorance, 100 Persians could put to flight 1,000 Arabs, but
now, God be praised, 100 Arabs can put to flight 1,000 Persians."
This range has been realized by Red Copper Miniatures, based on their own study and research before sculpting.
The handmade individual design and 3D printing technology allows them to develop their own characteristic style, versatile for 15mm and 28mm, with great detail and functionality, but without losing the personality of each model.
Red Copper Miniatures models combine respect for historical rigor and the freshness and epic of attractive designs, with new, varied, dynamic and unique poses.
We print them on demand with very high definition machines using our own blend of different resins to achieve superb detail and
plastic like material properties.
Red Copper Miniatures are LARGE 15mm that would mix well with Xyston and Legio Heroica (sometime referred to as 18mm).
If you prefer we can reduce them in size to "standard" 15mm to match our own or Essex miniatures!
Also available as 1:72 or 28mm on demand!
