BoB: Chahar Mongols

The Chahar Mongols lived in a region of Inner Mongolia, to the south east of Outer Mongolia just north of Beijing. Their lands were not incorporated into Mongolia on its independence after the Chinese and Russian Civil Wars. By the late 1930’s they were a minority in their own region but were used by the Japanese as a puppet state for a planned attack into Mongolia that never happened.

I painted them as they were described – dark blue coats, white wool hats with traditional orange sashes.

Figures: Copplestone BU21

They’re well armed, with a Sabre.

A Rifle and Pistol.

The Officer pictured yesterday, fits in well with them, and somewhere in the Playroom, is a standard bearer !

Suitable for both Chinese Warlord, Mongol and the Mad Baron’s armies.
