In particular, 1980s Hollywood gave us Rambo III and The Living Daylights (Timothy Dalton James Bond), both featuring fearless Afghan mujihadeen fighting on horseback. I'm not much of a Youtuber but I found these clips.
This first one takes a few minutes before the mujihadeen rescue Rambo and the Colonel.
And in this one, James Bond rescues the mujihadeen!
So, where was I? I had a couple of heavily armed Empress Miniatures motorcycle passengers. I'd originally thought they'd look good sitting in the back of a Toyota truck (like these blokes)
So finally I decided that if there aren't any 28mm miniatures of mujihadeen cavalry (or Taliban on horses for that matter), I'd make my own. I went to the lead mountain, and dispossessed a couple of Perry Miniatures Indian Lancers of their mounts, and here is the result.
