Raid by BurenErdene Raid by BurenErdene
!!! IMPORTANT !!!
I wanted to depict a mongols raiding a settlement/camp of another mongol tribe. This artwork has many flaws. I want the viewer to know the few things are wrongly depicted, as i didnt make my research well. Those are:
The entire camp outline is wrong, there is no defense that has to be set up.( For an insight: Nomadic Mongols "back in the medieval war times" The entire tribe would used their hundreds of carts to make a fence circling around the camp - so the enemy horses cant come through if there is to be a sudden attack. One family had around at least 2 to 3 carts minimum to load up their tent and other household items. So one tribe was made of up to 10+ families. And that made 200 cards for a tribe - enough to make a fence around the camp)
Also the shape and size of the nomadic tent (ger) is not very accurate.
Other than that, I think its ok to end it like this. I also didnt like the view point.
I actually didnt want to put this up in DA. But the time i spent drawing it gave me no choice. It took me long. And im a slow artist. LOL. And i hope to make a remake someday.
Enjoy

You seem to know a lot about mongols. And be quite ambitious with the drawings, I can feel the heat of the massacre.
I'm trying to make a story that happens in early-mid XVI century in the mongolian/siberian steppes. Can you tell me where can I find information about those nomadic people?
Wikipedia helps not too much.

Thanks.

You can go to Steppe History Forum steppes.proboards.com for a lot of info. Such as armory and clothes and such.
And of course there you can connect to a lot of folks who are nomadic fanatics.
Wikipedia is ok, but a lot of digging on other sources is required as i'm sure.

Take Care. , Thank you

How could a Mongolian get his own history wrong?

Sorry if I was rude. It happens to the best of us. Most Americans have misconceptions aobut their own history. I know I did.

I thought it was a Mount and Blade drawing at first. Great work though no matter the inspiration.
